Abstract

This is one of several Center for Agricultural and Rural Development (CARD) studies that pertain to land and water use and environmental policy. Previous studies have emphasized soil loss control (Nicol, Heady, and Madsen, 1974), environmental enhancement and export levels (Meister, Heady, Nicol, and Strohbehn, 1976), sedimentation limits (Wade and Heady, 1976), and impacts when land use policies are applied in one state but not nationally (Nagadevara, Heady, and Nicol, 1975). The foregoing studies have been made with a range of linear programming models. The purpose of this study is to evaluate impacts for 1980 of two potential environmental controls; this evaluation is made by an interregional quadratic programming model.
