A Stochastic Programming Analysis of the Farm Level Implications of Soil Erosion Control

Journal of Agricultural and Applied Economics, 1985, vol. 17, issue 2, 147-154

Abstract: This paper analyzes the effects of uncertain soil loss in farm planning models. A disaggregated approach was used because of an interest in examining the impact of probabilistic soil loss constraints on farm level decisionmaking. A stochastic programming model was used to consider different levels of probability of soil loss. Traditional methods of analysis are shown to consistently overestimate net returns.
