DETERMINING SOCIALLY OPTIMAL NITROGEN APPLICATION RATES USING A DELAYED RESPONSE MODEL: THE CASE OF IRRIGATED CORN IN WESTERN KANSAS

Results show that taking into account the effect of leached nitrate on groundwater pollution reduces the profit-based nitrogen recommendation by 12.5% with a consequent reduction of the static profit of 6.7%.
