Research for 1984 involved performance of a preliminary economic assessment of simulated changes in ambient O3 on U.S. agriculture using recent NCLAN response data for six major crops. Four hypothetical ambient O3 levels are measured and compared with a 1980 base situation. The results are derived from an economic analysis based on a U.S. agricultural sector model that includes major crop and livestock production as well as processing and export uses. The agricultural sector model is a price-endogenous mathematical programming model that translates the yield changes into estimates of economic consequences of O3.
