Water Quality Benefits from Control of Soil Erosion

Chester Young and Marc Ribaudo

No 278446, 1986 Annual Meeting, July 27-30, Reno, Nevada from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: Nonpoint source agricultural pollution is a significant water quality problem. An understanding of the linkages between erosion and offsite damages is needed to effectively evaluate the benefits from erosion reduction. The linkages were modeled for several impact categories, and the offsite benefits from the 1983 soil conservation programs were estimated.
