Farm Level Dynamic Analysis of Soil Conservation: An Application to the Piedmont Area of Virginia

Eduardo Segarra () and Daniel Taylor

Journal of Agricultural and Applied Economics, 1987, vol. 19, issue 2, 61-73

Abstract: A conceptual optimal control theory model which considers farm level decision making with respect to soil management is developed. A simplified version of the theoretical model is applied to the Piedmont area of Virginia. The model includes the productivity impacts of both soil erosion and technological progress. Both the theoretical model and its empirical application are improvements over previous efforts. Results suggest that farmers in the study area can achieve substantial reductions in soil erosion by adopting alternative farming practices.
