Darrell Bosch, Daniel Taylor and Blake Ross

No 269927, 1987 Annual Meeting, August 2-5, East Lansing, Michigan from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: Methods are presented for projecting potential irrigation expansion in a river basin, estimating probabilities of having adequate water supplies for expanded irrigation, and determining the effects of supply shortages on economic feasibility. Results from applying the procedure to a river basin indicate potential for significant expansion as well as supply shortages with expansion.
