Irrigation expansion in the Pacific Northwest; social costs and energy impacts of development


, : Irrigation expansion in the Pacific Northwest; social costs and energy impacts of development. AE Research Series, Department of Agricultural Economics, College of Agriculture, University of Idaho (213): 14

The Pacific Northwest is faced with some difficult decisions over how to allocate scarce water among the competing potential uses. The paper examines the question of whether development of additional irrigated land is a rational way to utilize the remaining unappropriated northwest water. The issue is complicated by the fact that many of the costs of development are external to the firms making the decision to expand irrigation.

We propose and demonstrat...
