THE ROLE OF SOIL TEST INFORMATION IN REDUCING GROUNDWATER POLLUTION
Ronald A. Fleming
1997 Annual meeting, July 27-30, Toronto, Canada from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)
Will nitrogen soil testing improve groundwater quality enough to decrease the demand for direct regulation? This question is addressed using a dynamic simulation model of irrigated agriculture in eastern Oregon. Results indicate that soil testing reduces applied nitrogen, increases farm profits and improves groundwater quality, but not enough to avoid regulation.
