Reflections on 40 Years of Applied Economics Research on Agriculture and Water Quality

Marc Ribaudo, James Shortle

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Reducing agricultural nonpoint pollution has been an environmental policy issue since the early 1980s. We discuss the evolution and results of federal and state policy, the contributions of applied economic research to improving the effectiveness and efficiency of water pollution control policies for agriculture, elements of policy reforms that are consistent with the Clean Water Act, and the outlook for needed policy innovation.
