The National Crop Loss Assessment Network (NCLAN) consists of a group of cooperating organizations engaged in field work, crop modeling, and economic studies to assess the immediate and long-term economic consequences of the effects of air pollution on crop production. The program's primary objectives are (1) to define the relationship between yields of major agricultural crops and does of ozone, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, and their mixtures using state-of-the-art technology in the field with realistic pollutant exposure regimes and (2) to utilize these relationships in assessing the economic consequences of exposure of agricultural crops to these pollutants.
