This USDA/AFRI funded project focuses on long run sustainability of US agriculture using the GLG methodology. It integrates gridded biophysical and economic data and parameters into the SIMPLE-G modeling framework in order to examine tradeoffs between: 1) crop production, prices and food consumption, 2) land use and associated carbon dioxide emissions, 3) groundwater depletion, and 4) nitrate leaching and water quality.
Utilize a US-focused version of SIMPLE-G to examine the tradeoffs between:
