Sircar, P. and B.C. English. 1982. "Conceptual Framework from which a Range Sector is Developed, A." Working paper 82-WP 2. Center for Agricultural and Rural Development, Iowa State University.
The Center for Agricultural and Rural Development's Resources Conservation Act, 1980 model (CARD/RCA) did not include a range production sector. After reviewing the 1980 process and its limitations, it was decided that for some alternatives, especially those requiring conversion of lands to cropland, a range sector should be included in the model. This paper outlines some of the assumptions and components developed for a range sector model.
