Environmental impacts created by population growth and economic development are major concerns of today's society. Increasing population necessitates increased and intensified production. As the world's standard of living increases, spurred by economic development, demands for agricultural commodities increase. These increases in demand result in expansion of agricultural production. This expansion requires changes in means of production, technology advancement, and increased education, all of which may result in changes in the environment. It is an aspect of these changes that is examined in this report. More specifically, this study analyzes impacts that occur under both a short and long-term planning horizon when attempts to control soil loss might be made.
