This paper examines the impacts of energy price increases of the use of fertilizer and the allocation of crop acreages between corn and soybeans. Regression analysis is used to estimate yield responses to alternative fertilization levels. A Linear Programming was used to allocate crop acreages under alternative assumptions with regard to fertilizer prices and yield responses.
