This study of policies for controlling water pollution from nonpoint agricultural sources includes a survey of existing state and Federal programs, agencies, and laws directed to the control of soil erosion. Six policies representing a variety of approaches to this pollution problem are analyzed. The aggregate economic impact of such policies is investigated using a state-of-the-art, market-equilibrium, linear-programming model of crop production in the corn belt. The economic effects of the policies at the level of individual forms and their impacts on long-term soil productivity are analyzed through the use of a watershed model. The institutional arrangements needed to implement the policies are examined, as are the associated costs for a typical county. Literature on the social aspects of policy acceptance is reviewed, and the results of a survey of the reaction of farmers and ASCS directors in Illinois to different policies are presented.
