An economic evaluation of alternative soil management technologies
MetadataShow full item record
In chapter 12, Wyeth et al. pursue the issue of sustainability of technologies for enhancing soil fertility from economic and financial perspectives. This analysis takes into account the results of three years of on-farm trials and combines those findings with the output of the computer modeling analyses of Badini et al. (chapter 11). Their results suggest that corralling livestock in the fields, spreading manure and micro-dosing with chemical fertilizer are adoptable within the range of farmers' risk preferences.
