No 283942, 1976 Annual Meeting, August 15-18, State College, Pennsylvania from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)
The value of floodplain lands in agricultural use following channelization and the resulting foregone value of these lands were estimated. The latter estimates were incomplete because of the inability to predict effects on potentially important parameters. Estimated differences provide a threshold for decision-making. Policy implications are discussed.
