Economic Analysis of Long-Term Acreage Reduction Strategies

A national LP model is used to examine long-term acreage reduction strategies: a least cost strategy, targeting on erosive land, and continuing current acreage reduction patterns. It is shown that Government costs are not dramatically different among strategies. The "targeting" strategy is the most effective; 40 percent of the critically erosive lands will be placed on long-term reserve.
