Field-Level Measurements of Land Productivity and Program Slippage

Abstract: The importance of heterogenous land quality in determining slippage on corn production in North Carolina is quantitatively analyzed. Field-level analysis controls for the influence of land productivity from other factors to determine the significance of the land decisions on slippage. Results show that yield hikes from the diversion of low-quality land by farmers comprise a minor contribution to total increases in average yield.
