Described in this report is the application of an integrated agro-ecological modeling system that has been constructed around Agriculture Canada's Canadian Regional Agriculture Model (CRAM) to analyze the economic and environmental impacts of proposed agricultural policies for Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba. This integrated modeling system consists of an agricultural decision component and an environmental component.
