Policy questions from CRP in the midwest. In: Impacts of the Conservation Reserve Program in the Great Plains. Symposium proceedings. September 16-18, 1987


, : Policy questions from CRP in the midwest. In: Impacts of the Conservation Reserve Program in the Great Plains. Symposium proceedings. September 16-18, 1987. General Technical Report, Rocky Mountain Forest and Range Experiment Station, USDA Forest Service (RM-158): 91-94

Environmental policy is inherently difficult to model. The 1985 Food Security Act forced conservation policies to be developed and implemented in a short time and with little information. There are many areas where the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) needs attention. CRP will substantially impact the Nation's pattern of cropland use, but it is not a long term solution to soil erosion.
