Ottoson, Howard W. (1953) Economic analysis of forage production and utilization in Dakota and Dixon counties, Nebraska (Research Bulletin: Bulletin of the Agricultural Experiment Station of Nebraska No. 173)
Soil erosion remains a serious problem on many Nebraska farms despite programs of financial assistance, technical aid, and education by several national and state agencies. One reason that soil conserving adjustments in land use have not been made by farmers is that considerable uncertainty surrounds the economics of soil erosion control on the farm level. This study is an attempt to increase knowledge and reduce some of the uncertainty with regard to the economics of erosion control in a specific area.
