Abstract

This study was conducted to determine the value of independent and joint nitrogen and phosphorus soil tests. Generalized stochastic dominance was used to estimate the value of information. Combined information from both the nitrogen and phosphorus tests was substantially more valuable than the knowledge of only one of the tests.
