Sustaining open space benefits in the northeast: an evaluation of the Conservation Reserve Program



Sustaining open space benefits in the northeast: an evaluation of the Conservation Reserve Program



Journal of Environmental Economics and Management 32(1): 85-94



A model is developed to analyse agricultural landowners' decisions to continue agricultural use, participate in conservation programmes, or sell land. The model is then used in an econometric study of participation of Northeastern landowners in the US Conservation Reserve Program. Significant differences in enrolment between urban and non-urban counties in the region are identified. The CRP is relatively unimportant to agricultural landowners in urban counties.
