Economic and resource impacts of policies to increase organic carbon in agricultural soils

Economic and resource impacts of policies to increase organic carbon in agricultural soils

CARD Working Paper ( 93-WP105): iii + 46pp.

Economic impacts are evaluated for four agricultural policies intended to increase organic carbon stored in agricultural soils in the USA. Two policies are directed at changing agricultural practices on tillage and cover crops. The other two involve alternative land use scenarios under the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) and the Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP). Two economic simulation models are used.
