This study is concerned with the effects of Resource Management Systems upon the annual net production value and soil erosion of individual land management units under three different management conditions. In comparison to the existing condition, the attainable and future scenarios exhibited five major trends in time. These five trends are: (1) an increase in the number of negative annual net production value land management units, (2) a significant increase in the number of land management units with conservation practices and some form of conservation tillage, (3) a slight increase in rotation length, (4) no major land use shifts between, and (5) a decrease in total erosion. ADAPT a geo-based computer mapping and planning system was used.
