Abstract

In recent years some prognosticators envisioned that the amount of acreage enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) would shift from west to east. This expectation is based on a perceived increase in the social valuation for water quality versus other CRP benefits. Some west-to-east shifts did occur after CRP rules were revised under the 1990 Farm Bill. However. the latest sign-up results reveal the opposite- an east-to-west movement.
