No 20283, 2004 Annual meeting, August 1-4, Denver, CO from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: The article combines economic and hydrologic modeling on the watershed level and proposes a method for determining optimal spatial location of irrigation enterprises and use of water by source and intensity of irrigation management. This combination of economic/technical investigation results with solution that explicitly accounts for deep-drainage as a source of environmental adversities. Alternative policies to achieve this solution are analyzed.
