Benefit-cost analysis of erosion control by processes of mulch seeding at the farm level


, : Benefit-cost analysis of erosion control by processes of mulch seeding at the farm level. Landbauforschung Volkenrode 45(3): 122-134

Measurable benefits and costs of erosion control by mulch seeding, such as the effect of fertilization by intermediate crops, reduction of erosion and the costs of sowing, are discussed.

High cost of reseeding, compared to returns, retards desirable conversion of vast acreages of plowed and abandoned range land in the west. Use of the preparatory crop method is an economically feasible solution to this dilemma. The method consists...
