Agricultural drought impact evaluation model: a systems approach


, : Agricultural drought impact evaluation model: a systems approach. Agricultural Systems 30(1): 81-96

Droughts are a frequent phenomenon on the Great Plains of North America. Since the great drought of 1936-37, policy makers have been concerned about the economic impacts of a drought and they have searched for policies that would mitigate these impacts.
