Abstract:

Bridging the areas of political-economic sociology, the sociology of agriculture, and environmental sociology, this study tests two hypotheses derived from a refined theory of foreign investment dependence. The hypotheses state that foreign investment dependence in the primary sector is positively associated with pesticide and fertilizer use intensity in less-developed countries. The use of both inputs in agriculture production is known to contribute to a variety of human health and environmental problems. Findings for random effects panel regression analyses of 36 less-developed countries confirm the hypotheses, and point to the sociological relevance in assessing the potential social and environmental impacts of both the transnational organization and the relative scale of production in different sectors.
