Describes the results of Goldstein's work with the pea-medic/medic/wheat rotation in comparison with a wheat/barley/wheat/pea rotation. Variable costs for PALS were 44% of those in the conventional system. The conventional system generated higher gross returns, and higher net returns under subsidized prices, while the PALS was economically attractive at market prices.
