Risk Considerations In The Reduction Of Nitrogen Fertilizer Use In Agricultural Production

Contents:

Author Info

  • Lambert, David K.

Abstract

Nonpoint pollution problems resulting from current agricultural practices are forcing policymakers to examine alternative mitigation strategies. Two mechanisms suggested to control the use of nitrogen fertilizer, a source of potentially harmful contaminants of water sources, are quantitative standards and incentives through per-unit taxation. Impacts of both policies on the distribution of farm net returns are analyzed. Risk attitudes are observed to influence the magnitude of farmer response to alternative policies.
