Title: Impacts of incorporating land exchanges between forestry and agriculture in sector models.

Author: Alig, Ralph J.; Adams, Darius M.; McCarl, Bruce A.;

Date: 1998

Source: Journal of Agricultural and Applied Economics. 30(2): 389-401

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: The forest and agriculture sectors are linked by having a portion of their land bases suitable for use in either sector. A substantial part of the southern land base is suitable for either forestry or agriculture use, with most of forestation on U.S. agriculture land in the South. We examine how land exchanges between forestry and agriculture are influenced by specific federal conservation and farm support policies, including changes in the Conservation Reserve Program. Reallocation of land is a significant part of the sectors' responses to the policies, along with intensification of timber management on existing southern forests.

Keywords: Agriculture, conservation, forest sector, land use, projections
