ENVIRONMENTAL QUALITY INCENTIVES PROGRAM: WHY ARE SO MANY CONTRACTS BEING CANCELLED?

This paper analyzes why USDA's Environmental Quality Incentives Program has a high rate of contract withdrawals. Using a logit model we examine whether withdrawals are linked to: (i)farmers bidding for payments that are too low, (ii)a learning phase about the program, (iii)the types of conservation practices included in a contract.
