Abstract

A delayed response model was used to examine the optimal nitrogen application for irrigated corn in western Kansas. Results show that taking into account the effect of leached nitrate on groundwater pollution reduces the profit-based nitrogen recommendation by 12.5% with a consequent reduction of the static profit of 6.7%.
