The Farm-level Economic Model (FEM) is a holistic economic model developed to simulate the farm-level economic impacts of agricultural policies or practices. FEM is particularly designed for evaluating the economic impacts of conservation practices or agro-environmental policies on farms. Over the past 10 years, FEM has been used in many watershed applications by itself and in integration with a number of environmental simulation models.(Download PDF) (Export to EndNotes)
