An Examination of the Tradeoff between Net Return, Risk, and Water Quality for Crop Rotations in South Central Kansas
AbstractThis paper determined the optimal crop rotation in South Central Kansas. The model incorporated net return, risk, and water quality. In general, water quality improved as tillage was reduced within a rotation type and by adding an alfalfa rotation. The optimal crop rotation mixes included wheat, grain sorghum, soybeans, and alfalfa.
