Contents:

Author Info

Abstract

Contained in this paper are estimates of the benefits and costs of alternative soil conservation policies in a spatially and temporally consistent framework. The policies considered are implementation of soil conservation practices with an objective of reducing erosion to a site's tolerance level and a policy with an objective of a voluntary 50 percent reduction of conventional tillage. Costs and erosion benefits of these two policies are compared with those obtained from CRP.
