If states in the Corn Belt adopt varying soil loss limits as a part of a nonpoint source of water pollution control program will there be adverse economic consequences. If so, what types of impacts would be felt and would they be severe. The objective of this analysis was focused on such questions. This analysis was conducted by modifying a large, market-oriented linear programming model of crop production in the Corn Belt to allow the imposition of soil loss restrictions at the state as well as the regional level. The results of this analysis indicate that there will not be significant shifts or resources among states if limits are adopted in some states and not in others.
