HOW EXTENDING RIVER NAVIGATION INTO KANSAS AND CENTRAL OKLAHOMA WOULD AFFECT TRANSPORTATION COSTS OF FERTILIZER. AN ANALYSIS OF FINDINGS

This study projects for 50 years, beginning with 1990, the volume of fertilizers handled for Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma and portions of Colorado and Texas by a proposed extension of the present Arkansas River canal system to Wichita and/or Oklahoma City. Maximum volume over the period is forecast as 55.9 million tons with maximum transportation "savings" seen as $158.2 million discounted at an annual compound rate of 5.625%. Origin and destination volumes are forecast.
