Abstract

A spatially dynamic programming model of nonuniform irrigation is developed to investigate the nitrogen leaching problem associated with irrigated agriculture. We evaluate the importance of temporal and spatial elements in (i) appropriately modeling the interseasonal corn production problem with nitrogen carry-over and leaching under non-uniform irrigation, and (ii) in adequately evaluating alternative policy instruments for pollution control. Comparisons of the time profiles under spatially variable nitrogen levels arising from nonuniform irrigation are provided along with an evaluation of three different price-based policy instruments for reducing nitrogen leaching.
