Abstract

The effects of uncertain soil loss on cropland productivity and non-point source pollution in a farm planning model are analyzed in this paper. In particular, an optimal control model which internalizes the on-site and off-site impacts of cropland erosion is formulated. Deterministic and stochastic versions of the model under unconstrained and constrained gross soil loss scenarios are considered. It was found that desired levels of confidence of fulfilling constraints on gross soil loss could greatly affect both optimal decision rules and net returns to farmers.
