An Economic Evaluation of Adoption of the Conservation Compliance Program: A Stochastic Dominance Approach


  • Govindasamy, Ramu
  • Cochran, Mark J.


Using stochastic dominance, this paper examines the adoption of the Conservation Compliance Program (CCP) in twelve Iowa soil types. Subsidies necessary to compensate producers for the increased risk of compliance strategies are estimated. Results indicate that to promote voluntary compliance with the CCP, the government should provide a subsidy of between $4.55 to $19.88 per acre, depending on the soil type.
