10 years of transition in Ukraine agriculture: An analysis of productivity and efficiency of enterprises
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Lissitsa,
Alexej; Odening,
Martin; Babycheva,
Tamara.
This paper analyzes efficiency and total factor productivity (TFP) change of large agricultural enterprises during their transition to
a market economy in Ukraine. In this case the efficiency is calculated by data envelopment analysis and the productivity change is
measured by the Malmquist Productivity Change Index in the period between 1990 and 1999. On average, TFP declined by 6%
annually, dropping a total 42%. The main reason for the observed TFP decline is a decrease in technical efficiency, which is found
to be remarkably significant. At the same time there is a high variation among individual enterprises: their distribution of
efficiency scores widens, which indicates that the farms diverge with respect to their economic performance. The Tobit...

100 Years of Dairy Farming: Town of Dryden, Tompkins County, New York
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Stanton,
Bernard F.; Conneman,
George J.; Hoskins,
Susan B.; Smith,
Stuart F.
A history and analysis of farm management surveys for the previous year, conducted on every dairy farm in the Town of Dryden
each decade save one, from 1908 through 2008 is presented. Five times as much milk was sold in 2007 from dairy farms based in
Dryden as was sold in 1917. Labor productivity in terms of milk sold per worker has increased 35 times in the century reflecting
the great gains made from advances in agricultural technology. Dairy farm numbers have decreased from 206 in 1907 to 8 in
2007. Dryden’s dairy farms continue as an important contributor to the economy of the Town.

13 + 1: A Comparison of Global Climate Change Policy Architectures
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Aldy,
Joseph E.; Barrett,
Scott; Stavins,
Robert N.
We critically review the Kyoto Protocol and thirteen alternative policy architectures for addressing the threat of global climate
change. We employ six criteria to evaluate the policy proposals: environmental outcome, dynamic efficiency, cost effectiveness,
equity, flexibility in the presence of new information, and incentives for participation and compliance. The Kyoto Protocol does
not fare well on a number of criteria, but none of the alternative proposals fare well along all six dimensions. We identify several
major themes among the alternative proposals: Kyoto is "too little, too fast"; developing countries should play a more substantial
role and receive incentives to participate; implementation should focus on market-based approaches, especially...

1978 OATS SURVEY REPORT
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Welsch,
Delane E.; Stuthman,
Deon; Showman,
Alan.
A mail survey was conducted in 1977 of farmers who were thought to be oats producers, using names obtained from several lists.
The purpose of the 1977 mail survey was to obtain answers to the following questions: (1) What kind of farmer grows oats, (2)
Where does he grow them, (3)Why does he grow them, (4) How does he produce them? Answers to these questions should enable
the breeding program and the Extension Program at the University of Minnesota to better address the problems of oat production
and thus maintain, or hopefully improve the relative competitive ability of oats as a crop in Minnesota.

The purpose of this research report is to present an evaluation of advisory service pricing performance in 1995 for corn and
soybeans. Specifically, the average price received by a subscriber to an advisory service is calculated for corn and soybean crops
harvested in 1995. The average net advisory price across all 25 corn programs is $3.04 per bushel. The range of net advisory
prices for corn is quite large, with a minimum of $2.34 per bushel and a maximum of $3.81 per bushel. The average net advisory
price across all 25 soybean programs is $6.61 per bushel. As with corn, the range of net advisory prices for soybeans is
substantial, with a minimum of $5.75 per bushel and a maximum of $7.92 per bushel.

In the Southeastern Association the average accrual net farm income in 1996 was $67,579 for the 61 farms included in this report.
The decrease is due to lower inventory levels since the increase in gross cash income was higher than the increase in total cash
farm expenses. Even though this is a decrease of 8% from the 1995 average, the 1996 net farm income is still one of the highest
on record. Only in 1978, 1990, 1991, 1994 and 1995 was average nominal profit also greater than $50,000. When adjusted by
the Consumer Price Index (to provide a constant dollar or buying power comparison), the average 1996 profit is exceeded only in
1990 and 1995. The 20% of these 61 farms with the highest net farm income had an average net farm income of $196,161 in

For the Southwestern Association, average accrual net farm income was $62,699 in 1996 for the 203 farms included in this report.
This is an increase of 9% from 1995 making 1996 another high income year in a job with large swings in income. This volatility
can be seen whether income is measured in nominal terms or constant dollars. The 20% of these 203 farms with the highest net
farm income had an average profit of $157,052--an increase from 1995. The low 20% of the farms had an average loss of
-$6,010 in 1996, which was a smaller loss than in 1995. Average gross cash farm income in 1995 was $382,502--a 10% increase

In the Southeastern Association the average net farm income in 1997 was $73,311 for the 64 farms included in this report. This
was an increase of 8.5% from 1996. The increase is due to replenishment of inventories which had been depleted in 1996. Total
cash farm expenses increased 7%. The 1997 net farm income is the highest on record. When adjusted by the Consumer Price

Farm types were assigned using the 1992 Census of Agriculture's Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) definitions. Basically,
any farm with 50 percent or more of value of farm sales from one item becomes a farm of that type. Swine farms have 50 percent
or more of value of combined sales from fat hogs, feeder pigs and cull breeding hogs. This report is a summary of the financial
and production records kept by swine farmers enrolled in the Telfarm/MicroTel record program through Michigan State

Net farm income for all representative farms will be lower in 2003 than in 1995-96, but net farm income will be level throughout
the 1997-2005 period. Cropland prices are projected to fall in all regions of North Dakota after peaking in 1996-97. Cash rental
rates are projected to follow cropland prices. Debt-to-asset ratios for most farms, although rising across the forecast period, will
not reach levels that imperil credit worthiness. Debt-to-asset ratios for the low profit and small size farms are higher than those
for large and high profit farms.

demands for both common and durum wheat are expected to grow faster than world production of the two wheat classes, resulting
in gradual increases in prices of the wheats. World trade volumes of both classes of wheat are expected to expand, but trade
volume of durum wheat may grow faster than common wheat.

The purpose of this research report is to present an evaluation of advisory service pricing performance in 1998 for corn and
soybeans. Specifically, the average price received by a subscriber to an advisory service is calculated for corn and soybean crops
harvested in 1998. The average net advisory price across all 23 corn programs is $2.17 per bushel - seven cents below the market
benchmark price. The net advisory prices for corn range from a minimum of $1.93 per bushel to a maximum of $2.51 per bushel.
The average net advisory price across all 22 soybean programs is $5.82 per bushel - four cents less than the market benchmark.
The net advisory prices for soybeans range from a minimum of $5.11 per bushel to a maximum of $6.58 per bushel.

Average net farm income was $43,762 in 1999 for the 216 farms included in this annual report of the Southwestern Minnesota
Farm Business Management Association. This is a large increase from the extremely low levels of 1998 and continues the
historical pattern of large swings in farm income . Almost all of the increase can be attributed to the increases in the value of
inventories and an average government payment of $44,674 in 1999. (Net farm income is an accrual measure calculated by
subtracting total cash farm expense and depreciation from gross cash farm income and adjusting for changes in inventory items.)
After subtracting an opportunity cost for equity capital, labor and management, earnings follow a similar but lower pattern.

Farm types were assigned using the 1992 Census of Agriculture's Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) definitions. Basically,
any farm with 50 percent or more of value of farm sales from one item becomes a farm of that type. Beef farms have 50 percent
or more of value of combined sales from calves, feeders, stockers and cull breeding stock. This report is a summary of the
financial and production records kept by beef farmers enrolled in the Telfarm/MicroTel record program through Michigan State
University Extension, or were accounting clients of AgriSolutions in Michigan, or of Farm Credit Services of Escanaba. Farm

Net farm income for most representative farms in 2008 will be higher than in 1999. However, low profit farms, which consist of
25% of the farms in the study, may have a negative net farm income throughout the forecasting period and may not have financial
resiliency to survive. This is true under both optimistic and pessimistic scenarios. All farms except low profit farms may do
well under the optimistic scenario, while only high profit farms may be able to survive under the pessimistic scenario. Cropland
prices are projected to remain constant. Cash rental rates are projected to fall slightly. Debt-to-asset ratios for most farms will
remain unchanged throughout the forecast period. Debt-to-asset ratios for the low profit and small size farms are...

This report evaluates the U.S. and world wheat markets for the 1998-2008 period by using the World Wheat Policy Simulation
Model. This analysis is based on a series of assumptions about general economic conditions, agricultural policies, the weather, and
technological change. Both the U.S. and world wheat economies are predicted to be optimistic for the next ten years. World
demands for both common and durum wheat are expected to grow faster than world production of the two wheat classes, resulting
in gradual increases in prices of the wheats. World trade volumes of both classes of wheat are expected to expand, but trade
volume of durum wheat may grow faster than common wheat.

The average net farm income is $77,672 for the 58 farms included in the 2000 annual report of the Southeastern Minnesota Farm
Business Management Association. This is an increase of 17% from 1999. The median or middle income was $39,675,
considerably lower than the average. Even though gross cash farm income decreased more than the decrease in cash expenses,
net farm income increased because depreciation decreased and inventory values increased. Income is still at a high level
compared to the early 1990s and the 1980s.
As in previous years, the income levels experienced by individual farms vary
greatly from the overall average. When the net farm incomes for the 58 farms in the report were ranked from lowest to highest,

Average net farm income was $81,750 in 2000 for the 212 farms included in this annual report of the Southwestern Minnesota
Farm Business Management Association. The median or middle income was $69,414. This is the second annual increase from
the extremely low levels of 1998. Almost all of the increase can be attributed to the increase in the value of inventories,
government payment, and the decrease in depreciation charge.
However, the change in depreciation was almost entirely due
to a change in the accounting procedures, not a change in purchasing behavior by farmers. Using the "new" depreciation rules,
net farm income (NFI) in the previous 5 years was estimated to be higher than when the "old" rules were used. For example, the
"new" NFI was...

One word summarizes the current outlook for the U.S. economy. That word is confusion. First, we review the recent behavior
of the U.S. economy.
Ten years of economic expansion without a recession had led some to believe that we could have
continual expansion without a recession. The year 2000 was the fourth year in a row with growth exceeding 4 percent and this
was accomplished with relatively stable prices.
unemployment was about 4 percent or below what many perceived as a
sustainable rate of unemployment without rapid inflation. Stock market prices had increased and some consumers were spending
their "new wealth."
However, the stock market showed signs of weakness beginning in 1999. That weakness grew, especially

This report evaluates the U.S. and world sugar markets for 2000-2010 by using the Global Sugar Policy Simulation Model. This
analysis is based on assumptions about general economic conditions, agricultural policies, population growth, weather conditions,
and technological changes. Both the U.S. and world sugar economies are predicted to improve over the next ten years after the
current over supply is reduced. World demand for sugar is expected to grow faster than world supply, resulting in gradually
increasing Caribbean sugar prices from 8.51 cents/lb in 2000 to 12.67 cents/lb in 2010. The U.S. wholesale price of sugar is
projected to increase from 22.5 cents/lb in 2000 to 26.6 cents/lb in 2010, if the United States maintains its sugar programs.

The global economy is also faltering. Global economic growth in 2001 was the slowest of any year since 1993, and only a
modest rebound is forecast for 2002. The combination of sluggish world growth and a strong dollar should continue to constrain
farm exports in 2002.Three concerns are important as we look ahead business earnings, productivity, and global growth.

Net farm income for most representative farms in 2011 will be lower than in 2002. Low profit farms, which consist of 25% of
the farms in the study, may not have financial resiliency to survive. The new farm bill will provide higher net farm income than a
continuation of the FAIR Act.
Cropland prices and cash rental rates are projected to increase slightly in all regions.
Debt-to-asset ratios for most farms will increase slightly throughout the forecast period. Debt-to-asset ratios for the low-profit
and small-size farms are higher than those for large and high-profit farms.

Net farm income for all representative farms in 2013 will be lower than in 2004. Low-profit farms, which comprise 25% of the
farms in the study, may not have financial resiliency to survive without off-farm income. Costs are projected to increase faster
than yields, which will pressure net farm income downward. Cropland prices and cash rental rates are projected to increase

Indices can be powerful tools for international monitoring and advocacy, and if used in international rankings, can help foster a
sense of healthy competition among countries. With this in mind, IFPRI's Global Hunger Index (GHI) was designed to help
mobilize political will and promote good policies by ranking countries and illustrating trends. It captures three dimensions of
hunger: insufficient availability of food, shortfalls in the nutritional status of children, and child mortality, which is to a large
extent attributable to undernutrition. Accordingly, the index includes the following three equally weighted indicators: the
proportion of people who are food energy deficient as estimated by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United

because higher world oil prices have increased the conversion of sugar into ethanol by Brazil. Brazil is the largest exporter of
sugar, and it is expected that Brazilian sugar exports may be reduced due to high oil prices. World demand for sugar is expected
to grow faster than world supply, resulting in Caribbean sugar prices increasing from 11.35 cents/lb in 2005 to 18.05 cents/lb in...

World demand for both common and durum wheat are expected to grow faster than world production, resulting in gradual
increases in prices of the wheat varieties. However, the current higher price levels in 2006 are due to weather conditions and will
not be maintained, as production is expected to return to normal levels in 2007. World trade volumes of both classes of wheat are

Precision technologies are now well-integrated into the agricultural industry - both at the farm level and at the crop input dealer
level. No longer are crop input dealers only using the technologies to bring new services to their customers, they are also
utilizing the technology in their own businesses to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their business operations. In early
2006, Crop Life magazine and Purdue University's Center for Food and Agricultural Business conducted a survey for the 11th
consecutive year to assess the adoption of precision agriculture practices in the U.S. from the perspective of the retail crop input
dealer. The questionnaire was sent to 2500 retail crop input dealerships across the U.S. A total of 368 questionnaires...

Land is a natural resource that is valued for many reasons. Farmers utilize land to earn their livelihood and as a store of wealth for
future retirement. Potential rural residents have increasingly sought open space for a home site and pursuit of a lifestyle.
Developers seek financial opportunities to invest in and develop it for non-farm uses. Recreational needs are often met through
use of land. For some, land is viewed as an investment and a hedge against inflation. This myriad of demands for land combined
with its fixed supply continually alters its market price, which is a monetary measure of its perceived value.

Net farm income for nearly all representative farms in 2016 is projected to be higher than in 2006. Low-profit farms, which
comprise 20% of the farms in the study, may not have financial resiliency to survive without off-farm income. Commodity
prices and yields are projected to increase slightly faster than costs, which will increase net farm income. Cropland prices and
cash rental rates are projected to increase slightly in all regions.
Debt-to-asset ratios for all farms will decrease slightly
throughout the forecast period. Debt-to-asset ratios for the low-profit farms are expected to remain near the 0.50 level.

Commodity yields are projected to increase at historical trend-line rates and production expenses are expected to return to normal

Average net farm income was $69,787 in 2009 for the 95 farms included in this annual report of the Southwestern Minnesota
Farm Business Management Association. Average earnings decreased by 63% from $190,901 in 2008.
This continues the
downward trend that began in 2008 after six years of steady increases. As expected, low incomes for virtually all types of
livestock operations pulled the average down, and some livestock farms sustained large losses. Crop farms, on average, were
profitable but also earned much lower incomes compared to recent years. Median net farm income, or the income earned by the
middle farm, was $96,130, substantially higher than the average. This indicates that the average was pulled down or skewed by
large losses sustained by...

This report summarizes the 2009 financial and production records of 88 Michigan cash grain farms. To be included, the farms
must have produced at least 50 percent of gross cash farm income from one or a combination of these items: corn, soybeans,
wheat, navy beans, oats, sugar beets and other small grains. The records came from Michigan State University’s TelFarm project
and Farm Credit Service of Michigan. The values were pooled into averages for reporting purposes. Farm records were included if
a farm financial analysis had completed 2009 data including beginning and ending balance sheets and a statement of income and
expenses. The data was checked to verify that cash discrepancy was less than 10% of gross cash inflow and that debt discrepancy
was less...

2009 Michigan Land Values and Leasing Rates
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Wittenberg,
Eric; Harsh,
Stephen B.
Land is a natural resource that is valued for many reasons. Farmers utilize land to earn their livelihood and as a store of wealth for
future retirement. Potential rural residents have increasingly sought open space for a home site and pursuit of a lifestyle.
Developers seek financial opportunities to invest in and develop it for non-farm uses. Recreational needs such as hunting are often
met through use of land. For some, land is viewed as an investment and a hedge against inflation. This myriad of demands for land
combined with its fixed supply continually alters its market price, which is a monetary measure of its perceived value.

Net farm income for all representative farms in 2018 is projected to be lower than in 2008. Low-profit farms, which comprise
20% of the farms in the study, may not have financial resiliency to survive without off-farm income. Commodity prices are
expected to fall from current levels however the final level is unknown. Commodity yields are projected to increase at historical
trend-line rates and production expenses are expected to return to normal growth rates after 2009. Debt-to-asset ratios for all farms
except for the low profit farm will decrease slightly throughout the forecast period. Debt-to-asset ratios for the low-profit farms
are expected to increase to about 0.50.

This report evaluates the U.S. and world sugar markets for 2008-2018 using the Global Sugar Policy Simulation Model. This
analysis is based on assumptions about general economic conditions, agricultural policies, population growth, weather conditions,
and technological changes. Both the U.S. and world sugar economies are predicted to remain stable over the next ten years in spite
of the 2007-08 surge in world oil prices. That increase in price caused an increase in the conversion of sugar into ethanol in Brazil,
while other exporting countries increased their production in response to those higher prices. Sugar prices returned to normal
levels in 2008. World demand for sugar is expected to grow at a similar rate to world supply, resulting in Carribean...

In the spring of 2009, Crop Life magazine and Purdue University’s Center for Food and Agricultural Business conducted a survey
of crop input dealers for the 14th consecutive year. In February, a questionnaire was mailed to 2500 Crop Life retail crop input
dealership readers across the US. (See Appendix I to this report for a copy of the questionnaire.) A total of 258 questionnaires
were returned, with 241 being usable. This provided an effective response rate of 9.6 percent, the lowest response rate in the 14
year history of the project. (In prior years, response rates have ranged from a high of 38 percent in 1996 to a low of 11 percent in
2001 and 2008.) Consistent with previous surveys, dealerships were asked questions about the types of precision...

Average net farm income was $322,165 in 2010 for the 97 farms included in this annual report of the Southwestern Minnesota
Farm Business Management Association. Average earnings increased by 362% from $69,787 in 2009 (Figure 1). Inflations
adjusted profits rebounded after a downturn in 2009 that was caused primarily by low profits in the livestock sectors. Strong
yields, substantially higher crop inventory values, and rebounding profitability of the livestock sectors led the way to much higher
profits
in
2010.

2011 Updated Arkansas Global Rice Model
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Wailes,
Eric J.; Chavez,
Eddie C.
The Arkansas Global Rice Model is based on a multi-country statistical simulation and econometric framework. The model is
disaggregated by five world regions: Africa, the Americas, Asia, Europe, and Oceania. Each region includes country models
which have a supply sector, a demand sector, a trade, stocks and price linkage equations. All equations used in this model are
estimated using econometric procedures or identities.
Estimates are based upon a set of explanatory variables including
exogenous macroeconomic factors such as income, population, inflation rate, technology development, and especially,
government determined policy variables which reflect the various mechanisms by which countries intervene in their rice sector
economy. Individual country...

25 Years of Food Policy Research: Reflections by Per Pinstrup-Anderson

Autores: Pinstrup-Andersen,
Per.
On the occasion of IFPRI's 25th anniversary, the author has selected a few subjects where the Institute has made an important and
recognized contribution to food policy research, either by itself or, more frequently, with others. In each case the topic has broad
application and the research includes innovative conclusions or methodology. This has necessarily meant looking more to the past
than the present, although in many cases the work is continuing and promises a good deal more, in addition to what has already
been achieved. He addresses IFPRI's accomplishments and the influence it has had on the development community’s views on
policy issues and the nature of development in general. These areas are discussed: Global Food Trends, Food Subsidies, Markets...

2C or Not 2C?
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Guivarch,
Celine; Hallegatte,
Stephane.
Political attention has increasingly focused on limiting warming to 2°C. However, to date the only mitigation commitments
accompanying this target are the so-called Copenhagen pledges, and these pledges appear to be inconsistent with the 2°C
objective. Diverging opinions on whether this inconsistency can or should be resolved have been expressed. This paper clarifies
the alternative assumptions underlying these diverging view points and explicits their implications. It first gives simple
visualizations of the challenge posed by the 2°C target. It then proposes a “decision tree”, linking different beliefs on climate
change, the achievability of different policies, and current international policy dynamics to various options to move forward on
climate change.

The last few years have seen a proliferation of attempts by various institutions to create a framework that would enable analysts to

construct a macro accounting framework using data from the National Statistical Office's 1990-1991 Household Expenditure and
Small Scale Economic Activities Survey and the National Sample Survey of Agriculture complemented by other data sets such as
the Government Budget Estimates, National Accounts and External Trade Statistics. This framework consisted of 9 sectors using
1987 as the base year. However, this framework was lacking in detail such that it was extremely limited in its usefulness as a basis

This paper documents the features of a 1998 social accounting matrix (SAM) for Thailand. It begins with a description of the
overall economy both via a macro SAM and a national accounts balance sheet. The macro SAM was the result of aggregating a
micro SAM; a mapping of the final micro SAM to the macro SAM is presented. The micro SAM was a modified version of a
SAM obtained from the Thai Development Research Institute (TDRI). The paper describes the modification process in detail. The
original dataset obtained from TDRI was a 'balanced' matrix. The converted SAM, after the modification, was still balanced. It
was therefore unnecessary to apply any balancing procedure. The final 1998 micro SAM for Thailand has 61 sectors, 3 household
types, and 3 factors...

This paper synthesizes the strategies put forth at a 2020 workshop on Latin America held in Cali, Colombia, in March 1995,
which looked at ways to eradicate extreme poverty, hunger, and malnutrition by 2020; to distribute income more equitably; and
to protect natural resources and the environment. The workshop participants concluded that today's freer economic environment
and reduced barriers to trade will help Latin America to achieve this vision, provided the region makes full use of its resources
and promotes social objectives. A strong food and agricultural system is essential to reach these goals.

Durante quase 45 anos, o governo interveio no setor lácteo através do tabelamento de preços. Esse processo foi danoso a toda a
cadeia agroindustrial do leite, uma vez que os agentes não tinham estímulos a investir em melhorias na produção e qualidade. A
exclusão se acentuou após a abertura comercial no início da década de 90, quando os preços passaram a ser determinados pela
oferta e demanda. O leite, que já apresentava tendência de queda nos preços, passou a enfrentar forte concorrência com o produto
estrangeiro mais competitivo e altamente subsidiado no país de origem, complicando ainda mais a situação do produtor. Vários
fatores contribuíram para a queda da rentabilidade da produção: o aumento dos custos e a queda no preço têm pressionado as
margens de...

A Amazônia tem um destacado papel na crise ambiental global uma vez que, no Brasil, há mais emissões de carbono por o
desmatamento e queimadas do que pela queima de combustíveis de origem fóssil. Para discutir a problemática e a importância da
inserção da Amazônia no mercado de carbono, parte-se dos processos de ocupação e uso dos recursos naturais da floresta e das
contradições na formulação das políticas para a região. Com base nos conceitos de direitos de propriedade, direitos econômicos e
rede social demonstra-se que a política atual de gestão e concessão da floresta pode também ancorar-se no mercado de carbono
para agir diretamente sobre o caráter ilegal e clandestino das atividades que depredam a floresta e diminuir os conflitos existentes.

In this paper we study the impact of the international migration of unskilled workers on skill formation and the average skill level
in the home country. We analyze what appears to be the least threatening scenario from the point of view of its effect on the
supply of skills at home: namely, migration exclusively by unskilled workers. Somewhat surprisingly, we find that even without
the departure of skilled workers, the home country suffers reduced aggregate skill formation. Although as a response to a higher
wage rate per unit of human capital in the new equilibrium skilled workers choose to accumulate more human capital than before

This study aims to analyze the agribusiness contribution to Brazil’s trade balance. A new classification of the agribusiness trade
balance was proposed and used to analyze the aspects of the exported products –agricultural products, products of animal origin,
industrialized foods and imported inputs – represented by fertilizers. Imports and exports vector autoregression models were used
to explain the behavior of these variables. An increase of 1% in the attractiveness – product of the exchange rate by the
international prices – boosts immediately the exports of non processed agricultural products by 1.71%, stabilizing at 2% after
some trimesters. The attractiveness explains 60 to 74% of the forecast error variances of these exportats. It is noted that an...

A Balaton vízminőségének, a tó állapotának romlása több tényezőre visszave-zethető, hosszú folyamat eredménye. Az egyes
tényezők szerepének meghatáro-zása a rendszeres és teljes körű, minden szennyező faktorra kiterjedő mérések hiánya miatt
napjainkban is gondot okoz, részben becslésen alapul. Mégis vissza-térő kérdés, hogy a leromlásért melyik ágazat az első számú

A BARGAINING FRAMEWORK FOR THE GLOBAL COMMONS
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Bromley,
Daniel W.
The global commons represents a class of environmental problems that require international cooperation. Global environmental
problems arise because the actions of some individuals or governments in one location hold serious implications for individuals
and governments in other locations. There are global environmental policy problems because adversely-affected individuals (and
governments) attempt to alter the behaviors of those responsible for global pollution. We develop a framework with which to
analyze such global environmental problems. Our goal is to craft a resource management policy that will satisfy both those who
seek a change and those who prefer the current situation. This environmental incentive policy will align the interests of the two...

A helyzetfelmérés eredményeként megállapítható, hogy a magyar baromfi ágazat legfőbb problémája a nemzetközi
versenyképesség romlása. Ennek számos következménye lehet, ami közvetlenül vagy közvetve érinti a fenntarthatóság három
pillérét, a gazdasági, társadalmi és természeti tényezőket. Az elemzésben feltárt problémák ok-okozati kapcsolataiból
egyértelműen kiderül, hogy mindezt az ágazat hazai és nemzetközi piaci kiszolgáltatottságának növekedése, valamint az
ágazatban tapasztalható objektív versenyhátrányok megléte okozta. Ez utóbbi a versenytársakhoz képest tartósan alacsony

A Battle of Taste and Environmental Convictions for Ecolabeled Seafood: A Contingent Ranking
Experiment
Provedor de dados: 31

Consumers face pressure from environmental groups to modify their seafood purchase decisions based on concerns about
fisheries' production practices. Existing research provides little information indicating whether seafood consumers are willing to
change purchasing behavior based on a product's environmental attributes, to the exclusion of other attributes. We describe a
contingent ranking experiment addressing preferences for fresh seafood, allowing for choices among different species, some
displaying an ecolabel. Results suggest consumers consider overfishing sufficiently important to contemplate changing the species
of fish they buy; however, they are unwilling to choose a less-favored species based solely on the presence of an ecolabel.

A BAYESIAN ALTERNATIVE TO GENERALIZED CROSS ENTROPY SOLUTIONS FOR

Autores: Heckelei,
Thomas; Mittelhammer,
Ronald C.; Jansson,
Torbjorn.
This paper presents a Bayesian alternative to Generalized Maximum Entropy (GME) and Generalized Cross Entropy (GCE)
methods for deriving solutions to econometric models represented by underdetermined systems of equations. For certain types of
econometric model specifications, the Bayesian approach provides fully equivalent results to GME-GCE techniques. However, in
its general form, the proposed Bayesian methodology allows a more direct and straightforwardly interpretable formulation of
available prior information and can reduce significantly the computational effort involved in finding solutions. The technique can
be adapted to provide solutions in situations characterized by either informative or uninformative prior information.

Cottonseed crushers face substantial risk in terms of input and output price variability and they are limited in their planning by the

Roberto.
This paper investigates the EKC curves for CO2 emissions in a panel of 109 countries during the period 1959-2001. The length of
the series makes the application of a heterogeneous estimator suitable from an econometric point of view. The results, based on
the hierarchical Bayes estimator, show that different EKC dynamics are associated with the different sub samples of countries
considered. On average, more industrialized countries show an EKC evidence in quadratic specifications, which are nevertheless
probably evolving into an N shape, emerging from cubic specifications. Less developed countries consistently show that CO2
emissions still rise positively with income, though some signals of an EKC path arise.

Evaluating the range of proposed adaptation measures to combat the sensitivity of agriculture to climate change effects involves
evaluating complex interactions between human and natural systems. Integrated strategy-making and implementation in the

the sensitivities of their inter-relationships. Lack of information on the sensitivity of agricultural activities to climate change in

Efficient policy intervention to reduce antibiotic use in livestock production requires knowledge about the rationale underlying
antibiotic usage. Animal health status and management quality are considered the two most important factors that influence
farmers’ decision-making concerning antibiotic use. Information on these two factors is therefore crucial in designing incentive
mechanisms. In this paper, a Bayesian belief network (BBN) is built to represent the knowledge on how these factors can directly
and indirectly determine antibiotic use and the possible impact on economic incentives. Since both factors are not directly
observable (i.e. latent), they are inferred from measurable variables (i.e. manifest variables) which are influenced by these...

A Bayesian Examination of Anchoring Bias and Cheap Talks in Constructed Markets

We present a theoretical framework for understanding the relationship between anchoring bias, hypothetical bias, and cheap talk
in constructed markets. In our theory, interviewers provide agents with signals such as cheap talk and bid values while eliciting
the value for nonmarket goods. In response to these signals, agents revise their prior distributions over the value of the good.
Previous empirical studies have failed to account for the interaction between cheap talk and anchoring during this updating
process, leading researchers to incorrectly assess the effects of cheap talk in reducing hypothetical bias. In particular, we predict
that cheap talk will appear to be more effective for relatively large bids. We test our theory in an experimental...

A BAYESIAN FRAMEWORK FOR OPTIMAL INPUT ALLOCATION WITH AN UNCERTAIN
STOCHASTIC PRODUCTION FUNCTION
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Griffiths,
William E.
A Bayesian approach is used to provide a framework for optimal input allocation for a stochastic production function with
uncertain parameters. The chosen production function is a single-input version of a function which can exhibit positive or negative
marginal risk. The sensitivity of optimal input allocation to the degree of risk aversion, the marginal risk parameter, and the
assumed level of uncertainty about the parameters is examined. Using an example problem it is shown that parameter uncertainty
will not always lead to a lower input level when a producer is risk averse. Some problems with the production function
specification are uncovered, as is the incompatibility of some expected utility and stochastic assumptions.

We propose a behavioral decision-making model to investigate what factors, observable as well as unobservable, owner-managers

of manager’s use of futures. In the first phase owner-managers consider whether futures are within the market choice set for the
enterprise. In the second phase the owner-manager decides whether or not to initiate a futures position when confronted with a
concrete choice situation. In both phases owner-manager’s beliefs and perceptions play an important role. The proposed model is

Because original high-quality non-market valuation studies can be expensive, perhaps prohibitively so, benefits transfer (BT)

preferred method, and address an under-appreciated problem – variable selection uncertainty – and demonstrate a conceptually
superior method of resolving it. We show that the standard method of value-function BT, using the full estimated model, may
generate BT values that are too sensitive to insignificant variables, whereas models reduced by backward elimination of
insignificant variables pay no attention to insignificant variables that may in fact have some influence on values. Rather than

Binary logit analysis was used to identify the factors influencing adoption of Global Positioning System (GPS) guidance systems
by cotton farmers in 11 Mid-south and Southeastern states. Results indicate that adoption was more likely by those who had
already adopted other precision-farming practices and had used computers for farm management. In addition, younger and more
affluent farmers were more likely to adopt. Farmers with larger farms and with relatively high yields were also more likely to
adopt. Education was not a significant factor in a farmer’s decision to adopt GPS guidance systems.

This study analyzes the demand for cigarettes fitting observed zero outcomes with a trivariate model consisting of an equation for

Five competing specifications are considered to explain level, with the ordered probit, which accommodates pile-ups of counts in
the dependent variable, providing the best fit. Marginal effects of explanatory variables are calculated providing strong evidence
of race and gender differences in consumption patterns. The estimated marginal effects are robust to alternative categorizations of

flexible rotation forest is equal or higher than that of a fixed rotation forest, because a flexible harvest regime delays the harvest if
the timber price is not favourable, whereas a fixed harvest regime would proceed to harvest regardless of the price. Often,
valuation of fixed and flexible rotation ages are compared using 2 different methods – NPV (or LEV) and Real Options. The...

A Bioeconomic Analysis of Protected Area use in Fisheries Management
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Greenville,
Jared W.; MacAulay,
T. Gordon.
The use of protected areas as a fishery management tool has been suggested as a hedge against management failures and variation
in harvests. A stochastic bioeconomic model of a two-species fishery will be used to test the performance of protected areas as a
management tool in a fishery with heterogenous environments. Protected areas are analysed under density-dependent and
sink-source dispersal relationships between environments within the fishery. Differing levels of management control over fishery
resource extraction are analysed. The model is applied to Manning Bioregion in NSW. The focus of the study is placed on the
biological and institutional characteristics that yield benefits to the fishery.

A Bioeconomic Analysis of the Duration of Conservation Contracts
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Crowe,
Bronwyn; White,
Benedict.
Conservation and restoration of native vegetation is often a gradual process which may require many years to transform an
ecosystem from one vegetative state to a target ecosystem. This process is stochastic, with some changes potentially irreversible.
In contrast, contracts with landholders to undertake conservation measures on their property are typically for less than ten years
and often make no contingencies for re-contracting at the end of the contract period. The risk to land holders and conservation
agencies of contracts not being renewed and the consequent potential loss of previous investment means including covenants in
conservation contracts may be attractive to both parties. A model is developed to empirically examine the optimal dynamic...

A BIOECONOMIC ANALYSIS OF THE NORTHERN ANCHOVY
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Conrad,
Jon M.
A simple bioeconomic model was specified and estimated for the central subpopulation of the northern anchovy (Engraulis
mordax). Net population growth was described by a power function and harvest by the U. S. reduction fleet was modelled by an
exponential production function. When incorporated into a bioeconomic model they allowed the derivation of two explicit
functions, Y = Ö(X) and Y = Ø(X) which could be used to depict the bioeconomic optimum. The roots of Ö(X) have important
economic interpretations and can be used to characterize the economic status of the fishery. The positively-sloped segment of the
Ö(X) curve may be used as an approximately-optimal adaptive management policy. For the set of bioeconomic parameters circa
1990, anchovy biomass...

American foulbrood (AFB) is considered the most significant brood disease of bees in Western Australia. The Department of

Provedor de dados: 31

Rohan T.; Jones,

Invasions by non-indigenous plant species pose serious economic threats to Australian agricultural industries. When an invasion is
discovered a decision has to be made as to whether to attempt to eradicate it, contain it or do nothing. These decisions should be
based on long term benefits and costs. This paper describes a bioeconomic simulation framework with a mathematical model
representing weed spread linked to a dynamic programming model to provide a means of determining the economically optimal
weed management strategies over time. The modelling framework is used to evaluate case study invasive weed control problems
in the Australian grains industry.

The Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI) and other carbon trading programs have been promoted as alternative sources of income for
agricultural producers, particularly those on marginal land. This paper presents the results of a bioeconomic model developed to
compare the relative returns from a beef enterprise against changing regrowth management practices to sequester additional
carbon and sell carbon offsets. The model is constructed based on a 1000 hectare parcel of land in Central Queensland and is
calculated for two landtypes; Brigalow and Eucalypt. Assuming zero transaction costs and a 20 year contract period, a
carbon-cattle enterprise has higher returns that a cattle-only enterprise at relatively low carbon prices for both land types.

Wetland ecosystems on privately owned farms – such as those on the Murrumbidgee River Floodplain in the state of New South
Wales, Australia – provide a mix of potentially valuable outputs to their owners and the wider community. The mix of values
generated is dependent on the biophysical status of the wetlands, which in-turn, is dependent on the land management in and
around these multiple-output ecosystems. Despite the range of private and public values generated, management decisions are
based primarily on the private values that landowners receive. These private land management decisions also affect social
values. Hence, there is potentially a demand for public policy to influence decisions based on the social values wetlands
generate. This paper...

Classical approaches to the economics of pest management have focused almost exclusively on single-species models. This
study develops and implements a methodology with which to evaluate multi-species, non-stochastic, managerial decisions subject
to stochastic elements of the plant-insect system. Multi-species insect management strategies (combinations of scouting interval,
threshold value, and choice of pesticide) are analyzed using a physiological mechanistic soybean plant growth model coupled to
three insect population dynamics models. Preliminary results indicate that net returns are maximized and variance is reduced
with lower thresholds and more frequent scouting than current recommendations.

between main crop harvests.
This simulation study highlights the potential role of cover crop management in a welfare

During the post-socialist transition period, the Bulgarian irrigation facilities deteriorated to a large extent and no longer meet the

are rooted in the water syndicates. Empirical findings from village case studies reveal that limited collective memory exists today

focusing on agricultural policy -- ag. economics 429, and ag. economics 614. Over time, it became clear that many students taking
these courses had less and less background in agriculture and less (even cursory) knowledge of policies than those of the recent
past. After this list was developed, a number of other professional agricultural economists found copies and began to use it, hence
its publication in a more structured form. The list of Farm Program Provisions is not all-inclusive. It certainly does not contain all
the laws and provisions that have affected agriculture over the years. However, it is an easy reference to farm...

A Bug's Life: Competition Among Species Towards the Environment
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Bella,
Giovanni.
A model of different species competing for the same environment is presented, and possible explanations of peaceful coexistence
or rather internecine conflicts are consequently derived. By means of a Lotka-Volterra dynamic system we describe the evolution
of two populations (bees and locusts) that differently approach the management of those natural resources they contend for, and
thus make a simple parable of today’ s societies playing the current environmental scenario.

Considering that the concepts of dynamic production system and traditional system are placed in opposite sides of a continuum,
the critical factor for the companies is in finding the break-even point desired to maximize the results and to reduce costs. The aim
of this paper is to verify the situation of the manufacturing company when using characteristics of both flexible production system
and static system to keep a good level of service and to reduce operational costs. The qualitative research was based on a case
study of a great nourishing branch company. The results shows that the company is located inside of continuum considered, thus
getting a satisfactory balance between the corresponding level of service to the customer and operational costs. It...

A business performance index model that measures wealth change in Australian farm businesses
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Sefton,
Clive A.; Cox,
Rodney J.
This paper presents an evaluation of a farm-business assessment model that uses financial performance measures and tracks
‘wealth change’ to evaluate performance trends over time, and ranks the relative business performance of commercial participants.
Its core component involves the use of comparative analysis, which is structured as an introductory rapid-assessment model,
together with a ranking system that has been designed to differentiate the relative performance levels of farm businesses. The
system has been labelled as the Business Performance Index (BPI) model to reflect its performance-ranking role that explores the
relationships, if any, between farmer attitudes and business performance. The BPI model is discussed within the context of the
debate...

This paper presents a general C++ platform for the implementation of a trade network game (TNG) that combines evolutionary
game play with preferential partner selection. In the TNG, successive generations of resource constrained traders choose and
refuse trade partners on the basis of continually updated expected payoffs, engage in risky trades modelled as two-person games,
and evolve their trade strategies over time. The modular design of the TNG platform facilitates experimentation with alternative
specifications for market structure, trade partner matching, trading, expectation formation, and trade strategy evolution. The
TNG platform can be used to study the evolutionary implications of these specifications at three different levels: individual...

A Calibrate Auction-conjoint Experiment to Elicit Consumer Valuation of Sustainable Farming: Is

Jose Maria; Lusk,
Jayson L.
This paper analyses the role of agro-systems preservation on making food choices. It employs the “Calibrate Auction-Conjoint
Valuation method” (CACM), which relates hypothetical conjoint valuation of product attributes with real market behavior using
real economic incentives. The paper also allows comparing the hypothetical and nonhypothetical valuations in order to value the
difference between the theoretic and the incentive-compatible WTP for a same respondent and within a single experiment. Thus
the paper aims at testing for: 1) the internal consistency on people’s behavior towards sustainable agriculture, and 2) the relevance
of the price attribute versus agro-ecosystems preservation for a fresh product. Results suggest that Spanish respondents’...

This paper first discusses the driving forces for further CAP reforms, it then outlines three approaches for the post-2013 CAP
which have been spelled out by certain interest groups. The third section examines a little more closely the critical elements of
reform which seem likely to form the core of the debate in the next few years. These considerations lead to the conclusion that, in
contrast to the reform process of the 1992 – 2004 period when there emerged a broadly accepted vision of how the CAP had to
evolve, there is, as yet, no such widely accepted vision for the next period. In this vacuum it seems possible that the reform debate
may be dominated by three actions: to cut, redistribute and transform the Single Payments. Interest groups who...

A Carrot-and-Stick Approach to Environmental Improvement: Marrying Agri-Environmental
Payments and Water Quality Regulations
Provedor de dados: 31

Agri-environmental programs, such as the Environmental Quality Incentives Program, provide payments to livestock and crop
producers to generate broadly defined environmental benefits and to help them comply with federal water quality regulations,
such as those that require manure nutrients generated on large animal feeding operations to be spread on cropland at no greater
than agronomic rates. We couch these policy options in terms of agri-environmental "carrots" and regulatory "sticks,"
respectively. The U.S. agricultural sector is likely to respond to these policies in a variety of ways. Simulation analysis suggests
that meeting nutrient standards would result in decreased levels of animal production, increased prices for livestock and poultry
products,...

A CASE AGAINST THE SIMULTANEOUS USE OF MARKET ACCESS RESTRICTIONS,
DOMESTIC SUPPORT, AND EXPORT SUBSIDIES
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Garcia,
Roberto J.
The Uruguay Round of GATT introduced market disciplines to international trade in agricultural commodities. However, in
cases where countries negotiated the right to limit market access, support domestic production at high levels and subsidize
exports, the spirit of the WTO rules have been violated. The Norwegian meat market (beef, pork, lamb and mutton, and chicken)
situations are studied in terms of the policy implications and WTO commitments.
If Norway's policy objective is to target some
level of production that satisfies its non-trade concerns, then semi-decoupled income support could be an improvement over a
policy mix that simultaneously restricts market access, provides domestic support and applies export subsidies.

A Case for Re-evaluation of Income Averaging for Primary Producers

Autores: Douglas,
Robert A.; Davenport,
Scott V.
Income averaging for primary producers is a long-standing tax policy in Australia. Major changes were made to the scheme in
1983 to overcome anomalies associated with the previous scheme. However the amended scheme has not been subject to review.
In this review, the scheme is found to perform poorly against the traditional evaluation criteria of equity, efficiency and simplicity.
The general conclusion is that to avoid cross-subsidisation and investment distortions which are often inherent features of any
general scheme, it is appropriate to consider the adequacy of self-averaging mechanisms.

Average total factor productivity measures for the dairy industry provide an insight into how the industry is performing as a

Victoria, over a 37-year period, found that total milk production and some measures of partial productivity increased substantially.
The economic performance of this case study farm over the 37-year period is described and analysed. From records of income and
expenses, operating profit, returns to capital, labour and management and total productivity measures were calculated. Between
1980 and 2000, the business achieved productivity gains at higher than the rate estimated for the whole industry. This...

countries. However, even if China'’ s cost of production converges to international levels, as shown in this case study, China may

processing and meat distribution. The supply of variety meats offers the most promising market opportunity for foreign suppliers
in China. The market may open further if the tariff rate for variety meats is reduced from 20% and harmonized with the pork...

Feeder cattle prices are generally lower in the fall, when the volume of calves for sale is highest. Most ranches in the Rocky
Mountains calve in March or April, which results in the sale of weaned calves in October, when feeder cattle prices tend to be
lowest. This study was initiated with the idea that a rancher might improve profitability by switching to fall calving, which would
enable them to sell calves in April at a higher price. In this study, fall calving generated both higher and less variable profit, but
mainly because of cost savings.

Cotton is an unquestioned success of Zambia’s turn towards a market economy. After privatization in late 1994, seed cotton
production rose from 32,000 metric tons (mt) to about 180,000 mt a decade later (three-year averages centered on 1994 and 2005).
The number of farmers involved in the sector grew similarly, yields trended upwards (though slowly), and the country
dramatically improved the quality of its lint, becoming the outstanding performer in Sub-Saharan Africa in this regard by the
mid-2000s. Yet the sector has experienced two serious crashes since reform, both involving rampant credit default by farmers
supported with seasonal input credit by ginning companies.

The development of grain-based ethanol production in Kansas has had a marked impact upon the feedgrain and livestock
industries of the state. The increased focus on feedgrain production stemming from ethanol development impacts the use and
sustainability of Kansas water resources, and has changed the proportional mix of crops grown in the state. The need to handle
increased amounts of feedgrains and to transport them to ethanol plants has affected the functional role of local grain elevators as
well as the directional flow of grain within the state. The grain trucking industry has been dramatically affected by the increase
in demand for moving both feedstock inputs and co-product outputs to and from ethanol plants in the state.

Food consumers are, in general, concerned with acquiring healthy food which does not pose risks to their health. These
preferences are directly related to the way the economic agents organize themselves inside the food sector. In this context, the
organic products’ share in the food market is rising considerably, mainly because they consist not only of a healthier product, but
also because they contribute positively to the environment. Nevertheless, these characteristics are not immediately observed by the
consumers, which makes the certification process an essential mechanism not in the transaction process but also in gaining the
confidence of several markets. This article lists some advantages and disadvantages of the certification process raised in the...

In this study, we employ the Harbinson proposal and July Framework to compare a ‘likely’ Doha scenario with an ‘inclusive’
baseline. The key aim is to assess the impacts across EU member states. More specifically, we (i) employ the latest version 6 of
the GTAP database, (ii) explicitly model CAP mechanisms (e.g., quotas, decoupled payments, set-aside, CAP budget etc.) to more
accurately assess the asymmetric trade led welfare effects on selected EU member states, and (iii) introduce binding overhangs
into domestic support, export subsidies and more importantly market access commitments. Whilst the EU regions benefit from the
multilateral reform proposals, the gains are weakened considerably by the tariff binding overhangs, where the EU25 only gain ten

The paper establishes a CGE/MPSGE model for evaluating energy policy measures with emphasis on their employment impacts.
It specifies a dual labor market with respect to qualification, two different mechanisms for skill specific unemployment, and a
technology detailed description of electricity generation. Non clearing of the dual labor market is modeled via minimum wage
constraints and via wage curves. The model is exemplarily applied for the analysis of capital subsidies on the application of
technologies using renewable energy sources. Quantitative results highlight that subsidies on these technologies do not
automatically lead to a significant reduction in emissions. Moreover, if emission reductions are achieved these might actually

A choice experiment method to assess vegetables producers’ preferences for crop insurance

Autores: Mercade,

Zein; Serra,
Jordi.
Agricultural producers face many risks in their economic activity due to weather conditions, plant or animal diseases, price
volatility, policy changes and so on. One of the management tools to deal with some of these risks is the crop insurance system. In
Catalonia (North-East of Spain) farmers’ participation in crop insurance for vegetables is low. Only 5 percent of the vegetables
area is insured, when in Spain, as a whole, this percentage is around 20 percent. Different reasons have been suggested to explain
this low participation ratio such as low risk perception, risk diversification, insurance cost or crop damage assessment rules,
among others. However, no systematic research has been undertaken to assess farmers’ preferences for crop insurance in...

A Choice Model with Systematic Structures in Decision Weights
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Hu,
Wuyang.
This article introduces a discrete choice model which incorporates a nonlinear structural adjustment to the standard utility
coefficients or decision weights. The proposed model is theoretically and empirically appealing when compared to several
alternative approaches, and it can be estimated by conventional maximum likelihood. Application of the proposed model in a
case study shows that it outperforms two competing approaches in model fit. Given its simplicity, this model is also capable of
revealing consumers' heterogeneous choices. It is shown that based on consumers' different characteristics, their product choice
and its welfare implications are also potentially different.

This study adopts a discrete choice modelling methodology to evaluate individuals’ preferences over planning alternatives for an
urban site of environmental interest. Since such projects involve some uncertainty and irreversibility, a special attention is devoted
to the estimation of the quasi-option values which are associated to project development. Two distinct measures for the
quasi-option value are estimated, and both coefficients indicate that the public places a significant value on reduction of the
possibility of adverse irreversible effects: a more prudent development strategy is valued about four times more than a procedure
that provides a lesser hedge against undesired outcomes. Furthermore, the study involved elicitation of intertemporal...

affect celiacs’ propensity to use a novel health-risk reducing product. Those four groups of variables that are aimed to capture
threat appraisal and coping appraisal processes as part of the standard PMT (Rogers 1975, 1983; Floyd et al. 2000) are found to
contribute significantly to explaining the adaptive response of celiacs. Self-assessed vulnerability and perceived product efficacy
form a most significant part of respondents’ threat appraisal process. Standard socio-demographic and lifestyle...

A CLASS OF SEPARABILITY FLEXIBLE FUNCTIONAL FORMS

Autores: Driscoll,

Quadratic flexible forms, such as the translog and generalized Leontief, are separability inflexible. That is, separability restrictions
render them inflexible with regard to separable structures. A class functional forms is proposed that is flexible with regard to
general production structures and remains flexible regarding weakly separable structures when separability restrictions are
imposed, thus permitting tests of the separability hypothesis. Additionally, the restricted forms are parsimonious; that is they
contain the minimum number of parameters with which flexibility can be achieved.

In recent years, general-purpose statistical software packages have incorporated new procedures that feature several useful options
for design-based analysis of complex-sample survey data. A common and frequently desired technique for analysis of survey data
in practice is the restriction of estimation to a subpopulation of interest. These subpopulations are often referred to
interchangeably in a variety of fields as subclasses, subgroups, and domains. In this article, we consider two approaches that
analysts of complex-sample survey data can follow when analyzing subpopulations; we also consider the implications of each
approach for estimation and inference. We then present examples of both approaches, using selected procedures in Stata to

Current U.S. farm programs make payments to farmers based in part on historical base acres planted in particular program crops
such as corn, soybeans, cotton, wheat and soybeans. Eligibility for payments includes regulations on the crops allowed to be
grown on base acres, and there are restrictions on planting horticultural crops on such base acres. The fruits and planting
restriction on base acres has potentially influenced the number of acres planted to fruits and vegetables over the past two decades.
This research carefully examines the effects of planting restrictions applied to vegetables and program crops, using county-level

Since its inception the GATT, and subsequently the WTO, has been able to operate in a fashion that is more consistent with a club
than an inclusive organization that encouraged the active participation of all its members. The WTO Ministerial Meeting in Doha
in November 2001 appears to have been a watershed in how the organization functions, and the club model may no longer be
appropriate. While it is not yet clear what will replace the previous model, it is apparent that decision making will be much more
diffused and the interests of a much broader spectrum of member countries taken into account. The central question is whether or
not the transformed organization can still serve the interests of those who were previously able to dominate the club– the major...

The United States and Mexico recently resolved a decade-old water dispute that required Mexico to repay the accumulated water
debt within one year. A Coasian analysis estimates the social welfare gains attainable to each country under an alternative debt
repayment scheme that allows repayment over a longer time horizon and in a combination of dollars and water, instead of solely
in water. Assuming average water supply conditions, under the agreed 1-year repayment contract, U.S. compensation value is
534% greater and Mexico’s compensation cost is 60% less relative to when compensation is paid exclusively in water.

A cognitive psychological approach of analyzing preference uncertainty in contingent valuation
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Akter,
Sonia; Bennett,
Jeffrey W.
The sources of preference uncertainty in contingent valuation (CV) studies have rarely been investigated from a theoretical
standpoint. This paper proposes a holistic theoretical framework of preference uncertainty that combines microeconomic theory
with the theories of cognitive psychology. Empirical testing of the proposed theoretical model was carried out in Australia in the
context of a national ‘Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme (CPRS)’ to be introduced in 2010. Two separate ordered probit models
for a certainty score associated with CV ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ responses were estimated. The results of the estimated regression models
provide evidence supporting the hypotheses drawn from the theoretical model.

Due to a rapidly aging society, stagnating per capita income and rather stable prices, traditional economic analyses methods lost

projecting future consumption of selected products, using a cohort approach with economic factors tentatively set aside. Per capita
consumption of individual household members by age was derived by incorporating family age composition into household data
classified by age groups of household head (HH). Individual consumption estimates were decomposed into age, cohort and time

A Cointegration Analysis of Wool Prices

Autores: Chang,
Hui-Shung (Christie).
Based on cointegration analysis and monthly data from 1976.8 to 1999.10, a long-run equilibrium relationship was found to exist
between prices for wools of 19 to 23 microns, despite the wool Reserve Price Scheme operated until February 1991. Furthermore,
the prices for 19, 20 and 21 micron wools were found to be weakly exogenous. The latter result suggested that, although
co-integrated, prices for finer wools tended to be less volatile than coarser wools. The implications are that wool producers would
enjoy more stable prices by producing finer wools and that cross-hedging is possible given co-movements of prices.

herds almost reached their pre-drought level in 1976, whereas cattle herds were at 23 percent of their pre-drought level; (b) in
1976-1977, local consumption of small ruminants attained their highest level of the 1970's, whereas cattle consumption decreased
at least by a factor of four; and (c) exports of sheep and goats have increased after the drought, while cattle exports are almost nil.
These trends suggest that herders have shifted from cattle to sheep and goat production at least during the...

A COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF FOOD QUALITY ASSURANCE SCHEMES: THE CASE OF
NEULAND AND EUREPGAP
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Gay,
Stephan Hubertus; Schneider,
Andreas.
Food Quality Assurance Schemes (QAS) are widely applied in the European Union. Neuland and EurepGAP represent two
different approaches. Neuland differentiates meat clearly by a strict emphasis on rules regarding animal welfare to provide
consumers with meat produced at a high animal welfare standard. EurepGAP certifies the compliance to international accepted
standards with regard to Good Agricultural Practise to ease the exchange of products throughout the supply chain. In terms of
overall benefits and costs, the study showed that for both QAS the benefits clearly outweigh the costs. This paper compares the
schemes and their implications for the agro-food chain.

V.D.
The study has revealed that the total cost per hectare is higher in Bt cotton than hybrid cotton. The cost of seeds has been found
higher in Bt cotton, whereas hybrid cotton growers incur more cost on insecticides/ pesticides. This shows the effectiveness of the
new technology (Bt cotton) for insect resistance. The average total cost of production as well as the bulk line cost have been found
lower in Bt cotton. This depicts a reduction in the unit cost of Bt cotton, which is the distinct advantage of the new technology. A
higher yield of 29 per cent has been obtained by the Bt cotton farmers over the hybrid cotton growers. The study has identified the
constraints in production, and marketing of Bt cotton in the area. Bt cotton has been found a superior...

This study compared and analyzed actual 1989 production costs for representative regional feedlots in the U.S. The results show
that grain-surplus regions have lower total costs and poorer feeding efficiencies. The analysis suggests that Iowa has a
comparative advantage in producing heavily marbled beef required by the Japanese market. Southwestern states have an
advantage in producing leaner beef and stand to benefit if U.S. consumers develop a taste for Select-quality beef.

A Comparative Analysis of the Development of the United States and European Union Biodiesel
Industries
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Carriquiry,
Miguel A.
Worldwide production of biodiesel is growing at a rapid pace. Arguably, the European Union (EU) is the global leader in
biodiesel production, but the United States has recently expanded its production. The growth of the biodiesel industry in both
regions has been fueled by a series of government-provided financial incentives. However, the timing of the growth and incentive
provisions, the nature of the main incentives, and the market conditions differ across regions. This article provides a comparative
analysis of the EU and U.S. biodiesel industries, highlighting market and policy aspects that are leading to a rapid but distinct
growth.

An applied general equilibrium model with oligopoly and scale economies, based on detailed plant-level data, is used to contrast
the impacts of the Morocco-EU free trade area (FTA) to multilateral trade liberalization on Morocco'’ s economy. Simulation
results show that the FTA agreement is likely to have adverse effects on Morocco due to: (a) deteriorating terms of trade, (b)
reductions in output per firm in industries dominated by scale economies, (c) diversion of imports away from non-EU suppliers,
and (d) potentially adverse effects on the aggregate demand for labor. We contrast this FTA with a multilateral liberalization
scenario along the lines of those proposed under the Doha Development Round and find this more beneficial to Morocco, with

This study examined whether the efficiency measures were invariant to choice of parametric and nonparametric methods for a
sample of 183 wheat farms. The efficiency measures from the deterministic parametric method were smaller than those from the
deterministic method. There was a trade-off between scale efficiency and economic efficiency. In the deterministic nonparametric
method, the economic efficiency, scale efficiency and overall efficiency results were invariant to the number of inputs or the
dimensionality. Only allocative and pure technical efficiency measures depended on the dimensionality. This work illustrated the
importance of holding curvature for the cost function in stochastic frontier results.

A Comparative Evaluation of Cash Flow and Batch Profit Hedging Effectiveness in Commodity

Agribusinesses make long-term plant-investment decisions based on discounted cash flow. It is therefore incongruous for an
agribusiness firm to use cash flow as a plant-investment criterion and then to completely discard cash flow in favor of batch
profits as an operating objective. This paper assumes that cash flow and its stability are important to commodity processors and
examines methods for hedging cash flows under continuous processing. Its objectives are (a) to determine how standard hedging
models should be modified to hedge cash flows, (b) to outline the differences between cash flow hedging and profit hedging, and
(c) to determine the effectiveness of hedging in reducing cash flow variability. A cash flow hedging methodology is developed....

This comparative study seeks to distinguish the organic consumers of New Jersey from those of New York and Pennsylvania.
The objective of the study is to document the characteristics of New Jersey organic produce consumers and compare the profile to
New York and Pennsylvania consumers. Econometric methods will be used to model behavior and characteristics of consumers
who frequently buy organic produce, and of consumers who are willing to pay 10 percent or more extra for organic produce than
for conventional produce. Comparing models for New Jersey to those for New York and Pennsylvania will provide a framework
for determining the significant characteristics unique to New Jersey's organic produce consumers.

A Comparative Financial Ratio Analysis of U.S. Farmer Cooperatives Using Nonparametric Statistics
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Royer,
Jeffrey S.
A comparative ratio analysis using nonparametric statistical methods provides no evidence to support the hypothesis that U.S.
farmer cooperatives generally are financially weaker than other firms. Although some cooperative groups had lower current ratios
than industry standards, most of these groups consisted of marketing associations for which differences may be explained largely
by the unique business relationships between the associations and their patrons. Comparisons of debt/equity ratios indicate that,
except for regional grain and farm supply associations, cooperatives generally are less leveraged than other firms. The overall
financial strength of cooperatives appears better than during the early 1980s.

The dichotomy between perceptions of the acceptability of risk associated with genetically modified (GM) foods and willingness
to consume GM foods is investigated. Results indicate that some consumers are willing to consume GM foods even though they
may perceive such foods as somewhat unsafe, with determinants such as self-perceived knowledge about the availability of GM
foods and altruistic motives having positive and significant effects on their consumption decisions. Efforts toward decreasing
perception of risk and ultimately increasing acceptance of and demand for GM foods should address issues related to their
altruistic characteristics and outrage.

We estimate adults’ willingness to pay (WTP) to reduce health risks to their own or other families’ infants to test for altruism. A
conjoint analysis of adults paying for bottled water found marginal WTP for reduction in risk of shock, brain damage, and
mortality in the cash treatment of $2, $3.70, and $9.43, respectively. In the hypothetical market these amounts were $14, $26, and
$66, indicating substantial hypothetical bias, although not unexpected due to the topic of infant health. Statistical tests confirm a
high degree of altruism in our WTP results, and altruism held even when real money was involved.

Autores: Davis,
Jeffrey S.
The aim of this paper is to test whether the marginal internal rate of return (MIRR) to research and extension estimates are
sensitive to the estimation procedure used to find them. To achieve this, a summary of the previously used estimation procedures
is made. Following this a cross section aggregate production function estimate is developed for the U.S. in 1964. The parameter
estimates from this model are used to calculate the MIRR's using the different estimation procedures.

A Comparison of Approaches to Mitigate Hypothetical Bias

We compare two approaches to mitigating hypothetical bias. The study design includes three treatments: an actual payment
treatment, a contingent valuation (CV) treatment with a follow-up certainty question, and a CV treatment with a cheap talk script.
Our results suggest that both the follow-up certainty treatment and the cheap talk treatment produce willingness-to-pay (WTP)
estimates consistent with the actual payment treatment. However, the follow-up certainty treatment provides response
distributions at all offer amounts that are statistically similar to the actual payment treatment, while the cheap talk treatment
provides similar responses only at some offer amounts. Furthermore, the cheap talk treatment is effective only for inexperienced
individuals....

Experimental auction and discrete choice experiment are two popular value elicitation methods. Theoretically they should yield

using Integrated Pest Management (IPM). This study investigates two potential reasons – anchoring and information – for why
some studies have found apparent inconsistencies between auction and choice experiment results. Results indicate that consumers’
WTP derived in the auction and choice experiments are significantly different. Consumers’ average bids in the auction are higher

A field test of cheap talk and two types of certainty calibration in contingent valuation of public lands indicated that cheap talk
does not reduce WTP estimates. Use of a ten point certainty calibration scale reduces WTP estimates by about half. However,
adjusting for uncertainty using a 'Not Sure' option does not reduce WTP estimates but increases the variance in responses. There
may be a conceptual difference between these two ways of accounting for respondents' uncertainty, which may suggest why they
provide different WTP value estimates and variances.

In this paper we compare results from an in-store field experiment and a mail survey choice experiment (CE) to investigate CE’s

shrimp, and lobster. CE estimates were obtained via four econometric models: the conditional logit, the random parameter logit,
the heteroskedastic extreme value, and the multinomial probit. We found that the level of control in the grocery store experiment
and the choice of econometric model influenced the capacity of CE to predict grocery store market shares.

As the U.S. consumption of sweeteners has increased, analysis of the demand for sweeteners has become more important. In this
paper, consumer willingness-to-pay (WTP) for selected four types of sweeteners is evaluated. The four types of sweeteners are
Kentucky grown pure maple syrup, artificially maple flavored syrup, sorghum syrup and molasses. Results suggest that consumers
who are at high household income level (above $80,000) and with a smaller household size are likely to pay more for Kentucky
grown maple syrup. Results show that there is no statistic difference for the annual household consumption among the four types
of sweeteners.

The Rotterdam model is used to obtain estimates of demand parameters for meat products in Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan.
Unlike most previous studies of demand systems, the model takes into account simultaneous-equation bias which arises due to the
endogeneity of total expenditure. Beef, pork, and chicken are separable from marine products for each Pacific Rim country.
However, demand elasticities for beef, pork, and chicken are different among the various Pacific Rim nations. One may not then
use the elasticity estimates of a particular country and apply them to other Pacific Rim markets.

G.H.; Stephanus,
A.L.
In an endeavour to improve the livestock production and particularly the marketing of livestock in the Northern Communal Areas
of Namibia, this study analyses the perception of livestock farmers in this regard. The findings show that the decision making is
significantly influenced by numerous socio-cultural considerations, which in many cases even overshadow the economic ones.
This is manifested in the low off-take percentage, the lacking interest in commercial production, and the fact that the sale price
offered to the farmer is not the most important consideration when deciding to whom to sell.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that a horse’s prior fitness level has an effect on the horse’s ability to return to that previous level of
fitness. This trial aimed to test this assumption which would benefit horse trainers to create individual fitness programs for horses.
Standardised exercise testing was used to compare the progress of two groups of horses during weeks three and seven of a
14-week training program. Group A had undergone a similar training program twelve months previously and Group B had not.
Plasma lactate samples and heart rate monitoring were used to assess the levels of fitness of the horses. Analysis of variance

and both target low-income households and/or individuals. Despite those similarities, economic, cultural, and demographic
differences between the countries lead to differences in their abilities to ensure food security and access to safe and nutritious

Hypothetical surveys are commonly used to elicit consumer behavior to guide product development, marketing, and labeling

in real-world markets. Evidence from a point of sale study of 702 pork purchasers indicates that there is a strong correspondence

What difference does it make whether farmers are served by cooperatives or investor owned firms? Are these two forms of
organizations really different? Cooperative ownership principles result in owners being more interdependent and interactive with
managers of the work organization than do investor ownership principles. This difference results in a difference in manager roles
and cooperative firm behavior unless the interdependence and interaction is offset by technological constraints, complexity,
product diversity, and rate of change in the environment. Institutional Analysis and Organizational Behavior-Contingency
Theory are used to link the influence of ownership principles and task environment to managerial role behavior.

A COMPARISON OF NOMINAL AND REAL HISTORICAL RISK MEASURES
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Ford,
Beth Pride; Musser,
Wesley N.
Previous studies of historical risk have used either nominal or real data to calculate risk measures for agricultural prices and
income. However, the effects of using nominal and real data have not been evaluated. This study utilizes theoretical variance
approximation relationships to examine variances from detrended real and nominal time series. The relationships between
variances are derived for quarterly U.S. farm milk prices for 1960-72, 1973-80, and 1981-90. Contrary to common intuitive
arguments, results indicate that variances of real time series can be larger than variances of nominal series. While definitive
conclusions are not possible, several reasons for using nominal data in risk analysis are given.

Recent trends in livestock concentration suggest that there may be an increasing risk of water pollution from manure applications.
These trends in livestock operations may be offsetting improvements in commercial fertilizer management that have the potential
to reduce the risk of water pollution. This conclusion was derived by tracking excess nutrient trends between 1996 and 2002 and
by examining measures of economic performance for livestock farms. First, a link was established between the expansion of
AFOs (Animal Feeding Operations) and excess nutrients from commercial fertilizer and manure sources. Second, technical
efficiency was measured in order to identify whether technical efficiency explains structural change and in order to see whether...

Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Hartarska,
Valentina M.; Gonzalez-Vega,
Claudio.
This paper evaluates the efficacy of two alternative lending technologies - the traditional banking technology and a cash flow
based counseling program - by using competing risks (option-based) and choice theoretic approaches. We find evidence to support
the notion that low-income borrowers have some degree of financial sophistication, as they prepay the mortgage loan by
considering the current value of the call option. The evidence also suggests that borrower heterogeneity and insolvency affect
mortgage termination.

Long.
We compare three parametric techniques to approximate Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman equations via unidimensional and
multidimensional problems. The linear programming technique is very efficient for unidimensional problems and offers a balance
of speed and accuracy for multidimensional problems. A comparable projection technique is shown to be slow, but has stable
accuracy, whereas a perturbation technique has the least accuracy although its speed suffers least from the curse of dimensionality.
The linear programming technique is also shown to be suitable for problems in resource management, including applications to
biosecurity and marine reserve design.

The number of cattle sold through video auctions has increased dramatically during the past five years. In this study structural
differences in pricing between a group of traditional auctions and the nation's largest satellite video cattle auction are examined. A
Chow test for structural pricing differences reveals that the influence of lot characteristics, market information, and merchandising

The production function approach has been one of the two main ex-post procedures used to estimate the rate of return to
agricultural research. A critical part of estimating the marginal internal rate of return (MIRR) is the procedure adopted to spread
the benefits of research through time. Past studies using this approach have given only brief consideration to this computational
procedure. The objective in this study was to review the different computational procedures used and, then, using cross-section
production function estimates for U.S. agriculture, determine whether the MIRR estimates are sensitive to the computational
procedure used. The results from this comparison indicate a large range in the estimates. The implication, then, is that careful...

Since the first half of the 20th century, the input-output (IO) table has been the backbone of much empirical work used to support
policy analysis and develop economy-wide models. The need for accurate, up-to-date IO tables is thus essential for establishing
the validity of the empirical work that follows from them. However, the construction of an IO table for any given country is an
expensive and time-consuming endeavor. Current and accurate IO tables for many countries are thus often difficult to obtain on a
regular basis. Once an initial IO table has been constructed, a common workaround is to collect partial information for subsequent
periods, such as final demands for commodities within the economy, and then employ a Bayesian parameter estimation...

The use of response surface designs in preference to factorial designs in agriculture has become widely discussed and
recommended. This paper simulates data for comparable response surface and factorial designs and uses this to demonstrate the
similarities between the designs and their analyses and at the same time to point out some of the customary differences in their
analyses. More particularly, it aims to show: (a) that for any design a reduction in the number of plots sown reduces the reliability
of the results, and (b) that both a response surface design and a factorial design allow the calculation of estimated equations of
response surfaces.

Two efficient farms are constructed for the brown soils of Saskatchewan, Canada and for Mecklenburg, Germany based on
producer panels. Both farms feature highly integrated cropping systems which take advantage of cropping synergies. However,
farm risk is inherently different between the two because differences in 1) climate that gives rise to very different yield risk and
cost structure, and 2) EU programs which offer fixed cash payments and stable sugar beet prices. As expected, risk is much higher
for the Saskatchewan case farm - it has a chance of a negative cash flow of approximately one year in five. In sharp contrast, the
Mecklenburg has very little chance of generating a negative cash flow. Hence, it is easy to understand why crop insurance and...

Concern has been voiced that U.S. Department of Agriculture (UDSA) Farm Costs and Returns Surveys are used for a wide

New Mexico and other selected states are compared to estimates developed by state universities. Major differences exist, most
important of which relate to the ability of the survey respondent to answer the questions posed. Regardless of the cause of the
differences, closer cooperation between the USDA and state universities clearly is needed to develop consistent estimates.

Forecast distributions based on historical yields and subjective expectations for 1987 expected crop yields were compared for 90
Western Kentucky grain farms. Different subjective probability elicitation techniques were also compared. In many individual
cases, results indicate large differences between subjective and empirical moments. Overall, farmer expectations for 1987 corn
yields were below those predicted from their past yields, while soybean expectations were above the historical forecast.
Geographical location plays a larger role than crop in comparisons of relative variability of yield. Neither elicitation technique

We model the situation where two large countries impose either tariffs or quotas and a third large country remains passive. The
introduction of the third country overturns results from two-country models. Stable quota equilibria are capable of reproducing the
equilibrium price under tariffs, and Nash equilibria with quotas can result in positive amounts of trade. Using a linear partial
equilibrium model, we show that world welfare may be higher under Nash quotas than under Nash tariffs. However, simulation
results suggest that tariffs are likely to result in higher welfare than quotas.

While conventional farming systems face serious problems of sustainability, organic agriculture is seen as a more environmentally

The flooding situation in 2011 is similar in nature to the Great Mississippi Flood of 1993, but different in the particulars. First, the

flood affecting a portion of the Corn Belt and the 2011 flood affecting a region farther south. While floodwaters have inundated
several million acres of cropland in 2011, yield losses from delayed planting are expected to be limited. Furthermore, the affected

In this paper, we compare and contrast two types of timber models that have been used for public policy analysis. These models

timber markets. The framework and theory for each model type is presented and discussed. We then thoroughly test the two model
types across six potential exogenous shocks to timber markets, ranging from instantaneous demand shocks to gradual supply
adjustments. Our comparison indicates that these models predict potentially important differences in timber market behavior.
These differences are important to consider for those who do public policy analysis.

Mean-Variance theory of portfolio construction is still regarded as the main building block of modern portfolio theory. However,
many authors have suggested that the mean-variance criterion, conceived by Markowitz (1952), is not optimal for asset allocation,
because the investor expected utility function is better proxied by a function that uses higher moments and because returns are
distributed in a non-Normal way, being asymmetric and/or leptokurtic, so the mean-variance criterion cannot correctly proxy the
expected utility with non-Normal returns. Copulas are a very useful tool to deal with non standard multivariate distribution. Value
at Risk (VaR) and Conditional Value at Risk (CVaR) have emerged as a golden measure of risk in recent times. Though...

Monte Carlo methods examine the accuracy of several production frontier approximating forms, estimators and methods to rank
firms by level of predicted technical efficiency. Results show stochastic frontier methods superior to data envelopment analysis.
The Cobb-Douglas approximating form is superior to the translog or generalized Leontief.

Autores: Martinez,
Stephen W.
Changes in vertical coordination in the U.S. broiler, turkey, and egg industries decades ago may provide useful insight into more
recent developments in the U.S. pork industry. The need to protect relationship- specific investments created incentives for
contracts and vertical integration. In the presence of relationship-specific investments, market uncertainty from a number of
sources helped determine the type of contract/vertical coordination alternative selected.

The usage of natural products is becoming an increasingly common consumer phenomenon due to increasing health
consciousness, and because of their naturalness, and medicinal qualities of the products. African countries are very rich with
natural products resources and supplies. The continent’s rich botanical heritage offers an excellent opportunity to diversify away
from other traditional exports. Europe and the USA are particularly promising markets for natural products. Thus, it is
advantageous to examine development of natural products exporting as alternative or complimentary economic opportunities for
many African people, especially those in the rural areas. This paper has explores both factors which promote and which act as
obstacles to the natural...

This research shows that the wine market in the California is segmented by age. The wine-consumption behavior of the California
wine consumer differs between the Generation X consumer and those in Generation Y and Baby Boomers. There are differences
in demographics, purchasing attitudes, and purchasing behaviors among wine consumers from different generations. The findings
from this research demonstrate that it is increasingly important to develop marketing strategies that are segmented for the target
wine consumer. Generation Y are young wine consumers who are especially important for the industry because they offer an
opportunity for growth– these younger generations are developing tastes now that are likely to last as they age.

and related services. A total of 122 interviews were conducted with different categories of farmers and with the extension
workers. The comparative analysis of two case studies (Cruz Alta and Pantano) showed that socio-economic characteristics were
not very significant in determining the level of farmers’ participation in farmers’ organizations in Minas Gerais. The ability of
managers emerged as one of the most important factors in the success or failure of farmers’ organizations. The presence of...

European politicians encourage the income diversification of rural households through various measures. Although being aware of
farm households’ potential for non-farm income diversification seems important for finely-targeting such policy measures, no
attempt has thus far been made to summarise the various determinants of income diversification in a single figure. This
contribution aims to close this gap. A composite fuzzy indicator that measures farm household potential for non-farm income
diversification is developed and applied to 1,053 farm households in Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Slovenia. The
indicator summarises the incentives of and capacities for non-farm income diversification on the individual household member

Price and expenditure elasticities at retail level for 11 fresh fruits and 10 fresh vegetables were estimated by employing a
composite demand system approach and using annual data. Most fresh fruits and vegetables were found to respond significantly to
changes in their own prices but insignificantly to changes in total expenditures. The demand for fresh fruit group appeared to have
had a clear upward trend since 1973. However, no significant trends were found in the demands for individual fresh fruits or
vegetables. The study partially incorporated the interdependent demand relationships between fresh fruits (vegetables) and all
other commodities, yet effectively avoided the problem of insufficient degrees of freedom.

Despite much hard work in recent years, economics and political science remain largely separate disciplines. Few meaningful

Some of the most recent efforts to construct such a bridge are critically evaluated. It is shown that this literature suffers from a
lack of theoretical balance between economic and political theory; unrealistic, temporally aggregated conceptions of
political-economic equilibrium; failure to incorporate theoretically meaningful stochastic elements of economic and political

Since the late 1980s, Mexico has liberalized its agricultural sector, moving from a system of price supports, producer subsidies
and consumer subsidies to a less distorting scheme in which market forces play a greater role. Coinciding with these agrarian and
food policy reforms, the government has implemented the PROCAMPO system of direct payments to farmers. There is a general
consensus that a direct payment program has the potential to be more efficient than a system of subsidies and supports. At the
same time, there is widespread agreement that other policies need to be put in place to assure protection of the economically
vulnerable segments of the population. Within this context, this paper uses a computable general equilibrium (CGE) model to

A Conflict of Legitimate Concerns or Pandering to Vested Interests? Conflicting Attitudes Towards
the Regulation of Trade in Genetically Modified Goods - The EU and the US
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Perdikis,
Nicholas.
The success of multilateral negotiations in reducing explicit trade barriers has focused the attention of policy makers and other
interest groups on the impact domestic policies and attitudes may have on trade flows. In the area of genetically modified goods
the principal area of dispute between the U.S. and the EU involves fundamental differences in the perception of these goods and
consumer attitudes towards them. The current dispute settlement mechanisms do not provide a way of dealing with this type of
issue. Existing bodies were designed to deal with "producer vested" interests and so cannot deal with "legitimate" consumer

A CONJOINT ANALYSIS OF NEW FOOD PRODUCTS PROCESSED FROM UNDERUTILIZED
SMALL CRAWFISH
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Harrison,
R. Wes; Ozayan,
Aylin; Meyers,
Samuel P.
Attributes for two value-added seafood products derived from underutilized crawfish are analyzed using conjoint data from
seafood restaurants in the southern region of the United States. Preferences for the products' form, price, and flavor attributes
were tested. Statistical tests revealed that the attribute interactions were not significant, and part-worth utilities for all main
effects were estimated using an additive preference model. Results indicate that the new crawfish products should be marketed
as a high-quality fresh soup base or seafood stuffing, priced between 30% and 50% of the cost of fresh crawfish tail meat.

A Conjoint Analysis of Public Preferences for Agricultural Land Preservation

Joshua M.; Ilvento,

Public preferences for the nonmarket services of permanently preserved agricultural land are measured and compared using
conjoint analysis. The results from a survey of 199 Delawareans suggest environmental and nonmarket-agricultural services are
the most important preserved-land attributes. Results also suggest that open space associated with wetlands on farms is neither an
amenity nor a disamenity. On the margin, preserved parcels with agricultural and environmental attributes provide net benefits,
which may exceed $1,000,000 for a 1,000-acre parcel. Preserved forestland provides benefits per acre that are statistically
equivalent to cropland, though forestland may be less expensive to preserve.

A national survey of broiler industry executives is conducted to analyze site-specific factors related to the broiler-complex
location problem. Conjoint analysis is used to analyze the broiler complex location decision. Feed costs, community attitude
toward the broiler industry, availability of geographically concentrated growers, unemployment rates, and wage rates were found
to be the top five factors affecting broiler company location decisions. The quality of roads between feed mill and growers;
electricity, heating, water, and sewage costs; and the number of potential growers in the region were also found to be important.

Product attributes that determine nursery-stock sales from wholesalers to retail garden centers and landscapers were studied.
Conjoint analysis was used to obtain data on buyer preferences. The data were analyzed using ordinary least squares and logit
procedures to determine the attributes that are preferred by buyers. It was determined that good- to excellent-quality stock,
offerings with a full line of additional plants, taller plants, and cash discounts are desirable attributes. Quality is the dominant
attribute affecting preferences. Packaging the preferred attributes together significantly increases the probability of a plant being
purchased by buyers.

Diverse needs and preferences across the United States provide justification for the devolution, or decentralization, of many
Federal Government programs to the State or local level. The move toward devolution, however, has not been evidenced in U.S.
agricultural policy, despite significant differences across States in such areas as commodity production, production costs, income
distribution, and opportunities for off-farm work. The existing structure of USDA funding and program delivery already reflects
an appreciation of the gains from devolution, with some programs accommodating differences in State and regional preferences.
This report considers the implications of devolving $22 billion in 2003 budget outlays, mostly for domestic commodity and

The South African beef industry, like many other South African supply chains, is challenged by the increased complexity and
demand brought about by globalization, increased volumes and competition, shortage of skilled staff and pressures to meet
changing customer needs. The power has shifted from the supply side to the consumer. The consumer has been empowered by
greater knowledge. Consumer needs are changing. A combination of these two facts implies that not only the retailer, but also the
supply chain as a whole must make sure that it is aligned to deliver customer value, in order to ensure sustainable competitiveness
and survival, manage risks and ensure acceptable returns. Competition today is based on competing supply chains. The focus of

A Consumption Base Theory of Development: An Application to the Rural Cultural Economy

Export base theory, which posits that overall regional growth is a function of external sales of locally produced goods and
services, dominates economic development practice. But the consumption base can also serve as a growth driver, especially in
small towns and rural areas. Local investments may induce residents to divert expenditures into local purchases, attract new and
footloose residents and tourists, and revitalize aging town centers. A consumption base approach is not reducible to import
substitution, but seeks to serve latent demand and alter the broad portfolio of goods and services purchased locally. I present the
analytics for a consumption base theory and demonstrate how cultural investments prompt regional growth, emphasizing the role

A Continuous Multi-dimensional Measure of Rurality: Moving Beyond Threshold Measures

Autores: Waldorf,

This paper introduces the Index of Relative Rurality, a continuous measure of rurality. The index is based on four dimensions:
population size, density, percentage of urban residents, and distance to the closest metropolitan area. The index varies from 0
(most urban) to 1 (most rural). Compared to existing means of measuring rurality, the index is continuous and thus does not suffer
from problems that arise when using arbitrary thresholds to separate discrete categories. This shift away from often ill-defined
categories of rural and urban, to measuring the degree of rurality will shed new light on a wide array of rural issues ranging from
rural poverty to economic growth. This paper shows that the Index of Relative Rurality makes an invaluable...

A national telephone survey was conducted in the United States in April 2002 to study the consumer acceptance of genetically
modified (GM) foods. Attitudes toward GM foods were examined through the use of a multiple correspondence analysis (MCA),
analyzing the interrelationships among many categorical variables. This method was combined with a cluster analysis to construct
a typology of consumers' attitudes. Four distinct classes of attitudes were finally extracted, denoted as: Proponents,
Non-Opponents, Moderate Opponents, and Extreme Opponents. It was estimated that only 35% of the surveyed population was
opposed to GM foods.

This paper explores the economics of input decision by a firm facing production uncertainty. It relies on a state-contingent
approach to production uncertainty. First, the paper develops a methodology to specify and estimate cost-minimizing input
decisions under a state-contingent technology. Second, the analysis is applied to time series data on US agriculture. It finds strong
empirical evidence that, in the analysis of input choices, expected output alone does not provide an appropriate representation of
production uncertainty. The results provide empirical support for an output-cubical technology. This indicates that an ex post

respectively for Mississippi cotton production. Our results found statistically significant relationship between per acre direct cost
and cotton buy-up insurance for year 2001 and 2005 in Mississippi. Our results also indicate that moral hazard can either decrease

A COST-BASED MODEL OF SEASONAL PRODUCTION, WITH APPLICATION TO MILK
POLICY
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Hennessy,
David A.; Roosen,
Jutta.
Milk production is seasonal in many European countries. While quantity seasonality poses capacity management problems for
dairy processors, a European Union policy goal is to reduce price seasonality. After developing a model of endogenous
seasonality, we study the effects of three E.U. policies on production decisions. These are private storage subsidies, production
removals, and production quotas. When cost functions are seasonal in a specified way, then arbitrage opportunities interact with
storage subsidies to reduce both price and consumption seasonality. But production seasonality likely increases because storage
subsidies promote temporal market integration. Conditions are identified under which product market interventions increase
quantity...

A cost-effectiveness frontier is developed to compare economic and environmental tradeoffs associated with planting a riparian
buffer to reduce stream temperature at the watershed scale. Results indicate that total welfare change and its distribution among
sectors vary between scenarios. The policy selected may differ if riparian plantings are voluntary rather than mandatory.

This paper is concerned with the issue of the most cost-effective way of improving access to education for poor households in
developing countries. We consider two alternatives: (1) extensive expansion of the school system (i.e., bringing education to the
poor) and (2) subsidizing investment in education by the poor (i.e., bringing the poor to the education system). To this end, we
evaluate the Programa Nacional de Educación, Salud y Alimentación (PROGRESA), a large poverty alleviation program recently
introduced in Mexico that subsidizes education. Using double-difference regression estimators on data collected before and after
the program for randomly selected control and treatment households, we estimate the relative impacts of the demand- and...

The primary focus of this poster paper is to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of alternative control strategies for a number of
simulated outbreaks of Foot-and-Mouth disease (FMD) in four agriculturally diverse Irish regions, examining for the first time,
the potential role of emergency vaccination in the country. With the increasing threat of transboundary animal diseases due to
globalisation, wider market integration and increased animal movement it is important that such an evaluation of control and
eradication strategies be undertaken and contingency plans be put in place. The new EU Directive (2003/85/EC) on FMD control
permits the use of emergency vaccination as part of an FMD control strategy. The slaughter of infected animals and "dangerous...

with ten other location factors in an ordered, categorical logit model of plant attraction to Georgia counties. The results inform
public decision-makers of the relative impact of site location factors and how changes in location factors can alter the probability

This study analyzed the Brazilian coffee exporter’s losses between the years 2002 and 2009, by emphasizing the 2007/09 crisis,
which affected several sectors and generated instability and uncertainty about the future results of the economic activities. The
Brazilian coffee exporting sector is fully inserted in this context, once it acts in the financial markets and it is still subject to the
strong variations from the physical market. Thus, the central analysis dealt with the volatility of the exporters returns and was
based on auto regressive models with conditional heteroscedaticity (ARCH) and on the Value at Risk (VAR) estimative. As a
supplement, the effects from the external demand for the Brazilian coffee and from the exchange rate variation over the...

A Critical Account of the Relationship between Institutional Trust, Risk Perception, and Technology

Autores: Boecker,
Andreas; Nocella,
Giuseppe.
This article critically reflects on the widely held view of a causal chain with trust in public authorities impacting technology
acceptance via perceived risk. It first puts forward conceptual reason against this view, as the presence of risk is a precondition for
trust playing a role in decision making. Second, results from consumer surveys in Italy and Germany are presented that support
the associationist model as counter hypothesis. In that view, trust and risk judgments are driven by and thus simply indicators of
higher order attitudes toward a certain technology which determine acceptance instead. The implications of these findings are
discussed.

A Critical Assessment of Islamic Economics

Autores: Shams,

This paper presents a critical assessment of the widely discussed concept of Islamic Economics. The two different interpretations
of Islamic economics as the study of the functioning of an interest-free economy and the validity of moral values in the economy
are discussed. It is shown that none of these interpretations can help to create an acceptable foundation for an Islamic economics.
Far away from laying the foundation for such an economics the question is raised how an Islamic economy would function, based
on the Islamic principle of controlling the Nafs. Microeconomics and macroeconomics of such an economy are analysed and its
special features are compared to an economy functioning on the basis of laws devised by the conventional economic analysis.

Irrigation farmers in the lower reaches of the Vaal and Riet Rivers are experiencing substantial yield reductions in certain crops
and more profitable crops have been withdrawn from production, hypothesised, as a result of generally poor but especially
fluctuating water quality. In this paper secondary data is used in a linear programming model to test this hypothesis by calculating
the potential loss in farm level optimal returns. The model is static with a time frame of two production seasons. Linear crop-water
quality production functions (Ayers & Westcot, 1983; adapted from Maas & Hoffmann, 1977) are used to calculate net
returns for the eight most common crops grown. Results show optimal enterprise composition under various water quality...

Lisa Hill has recently provided a new assessment of Adam Smith which attempts to reveal the 'hidden' theology which underpins
his providential or 'optimistic' system of thought. Her interpretation breaks with the mainstream view of Smith as a follower of the
secular, or atheistic, David Hume. While Hill concedes that there are resemblances to modern theories of evolution and
spontaneous order in Smith's writings, the latter's own views differ. Darwinian evolution and Hayekian spontaneous order theories
are thoroughly secular. Smith's ideas, however, are located in, what Hill calls 'a transitional phase in the history of ideas' in which
belief in teleology was still mainstream. Hence, while society may change very slowly over time, in something like an...

Applied trade analysis and modeling would not be possible without databases. Over the last few years, a considerable effort has
been devoted to put together and harmonize a huge amount of data. This has lead to the construction of large-scale datasets on
trade (imports and exports in volume and value terms). In parallel, increasing attention has been devoted to measuring tariffs and
other trade barriers. These efforts are still under way. It is only recently that large-scale models, for example, have taken into
account the lower tariffs applied under preferential agreements (the former generation of models only considered the "bound"
tariffs that act as a ceiling in many countries). The changes resulting from the introduction of better data on tariffs have...

A Critique of Computable General Equilibrium Models for Trade Policy Analysis

The paper will deal in turn with three sets of modelling issues: the question of 'data'; the 'micro' problem of specifying market
behaviour, and the. 'macro' issue of 'closing' the models in aggregate. I will conclude with some suggestions for future research.
The basic theme of the paper is this: CGE modelling is essentially a conservative or 'neoclassical' scientific endeavour, and
exhibits the strengths and weaknesses of neoclassicism. And as for the recent injection of apparently nonneoclassical imperfect
competition or industrial organization (IO) concepts into CGE, though, as an 10 specialist myself I certainly welcome this in
principle, I have doubts about the usefulness of the practice.

A Crop Yield Expectation Stochastic Process with Beta Distribution as Limit
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Hennessy,
David A.
The modeling of price risk in the theory and practice of commodity risk management has been developed far beyond that of crop
yield risk. This is in large part due to the use of plausible stochastic price processes. We use the Pólya urn to identify and develop
a model of the crop yield expectation stochastic process over a growing season. The process allows a role for agronomic events,
such as growing degree days. The model is internally consistent in adhering to the martingale property. The limiting distribution is
the beta, commonly used in yield modeling. By applying binomial tree analysis, we show how to use the framework to study
hedging decisions and crop valuation.

Cereal foods' production and use show substantial heterogeneity across Europe. For a category central in most EU diets, cereal

citizens were inquired about the importance of several cues and dimensions in their evaluation of the perceived quality of bread,
cookies, breakfast cereals, pasta and vodka. Portuguese and Lithuanians consistently gave a significantly higher average
importance to all the cues and quality dimensions considered, for all products, than their Danish counterparts. Nevertheless,
respondents in all three samples found expected quality dimensions to be much more important than both extrinsic and intrinsic

The study presents an analysis of the coordination between the cassava's producers and the cassava's processors industry located
in the west of State of Parana (Brazil). In a few years this chain became dynamics because of many factors, such as the
institutional that is the most important one. In the last years it was verified a large volatility in cassava's production and price, that
compromised the chain performance, mainly the cassava's starch modified production and price, which has high aggregate value.
One of this oscillations cause, among other reasons was the lack of coordination between agents. To find evidences and solutions
to the studies answers, the new institutional economy approach was studied. Three cassava's starch industries were analyzed...

This present work seeks reflection on the research works about culture in organizations. As time goes by, it can be observed that
in Organizational Studies, as well as in the Organizational Theory, lies a great mosaic of research works on culture, which can be
verified by the amount of authors who write about the subiect. It is on this symbolic pollution and proliferation of organizational
studies on culture, that several authors lay their criticism. In Brazil, works and pieces of research on culture had gained notoriety
in the late 80’s and early 90’s. Fischer & Mac-Allister (2001) report that, from the studies carried out on culture in the
organizations, few actually tried to take over the challenge of associating Brazilian culture to Brazilian...

A Currency Crisis in Europe? - The Europe's Common Currency and the New Accession Countries Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Krawczyk,
Mariusz K.
The politically and legally complicated character of the EU Eastern Enlargement heavily influenced the conflict between the legal
and economic rationality underlying the construction of the EMR-II. This makes the ERM-II vulnerable to currency crises and
creates conditions for a widespread currency and asset substitution in the accession countries. As a result, the required
participation of all accession countries in the ERM-II imposes unnecessary costs on the whole enlargement process. The costs
could be avoided if the EU adopted a more flexible approach to the enlargement of its monetary union, allowing for an individual
path of adopting the euro in each accession country depending on the country's economic conditions.

A Customer Service Design Case Study: Insights on Customer Loyalty in the Brazilian Food Sector

Autores: Florencio de Almeida,

Luciana.
Marketing managers of local and international food companies have realized that what they offer to customers go well beyond the
characteristics and attributes of the products their companies manufacture and market. Service has become an integral part of the
offer (Grönroos, 1993); a high service quality improves the company competitiveness, builds customer trust, supports the
company brand and other product attributes (Berry & Parasuraman, 1991, p. 12). This paper seeks to investigate whether
customer care service perceived quality in the food sector is truly relevant to customer satisfaction and loyalty.

Autores: Tauer,

Michael.
This article discusses the application of a quadratic programming model to the bond and note participation decision of a
Cooperative Farm Credit Bank. The model generates an efficient frontier of bond and note portfolios from which a bank can
choose. The composition of these portfolios depends upon the expected cost and variance-covariance of cost for the bond and
note activities, debt needs, and the debt policy constraints of a bank. The results indicate that the interest rate risk of various
bond and note issues should be considered when making debt participation decisions.

A Decomposition of North American Trade Growth since NAFTA
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Hillberry,
Russell H.; McDaniel,
Christine A.
Total U.S. trade with NAFTA partners has increased 78 percent in real terms since 1993– U.S.-Mexico trade alone is up 141
percent– compared to a 43 percent increase in U.S. trade with the rest of the world. In this article we compare the nature of U.S.
trade growth with Canada and Mexico to growth in U.S. trade with non-NAFTA partners. We apply a simple decomposition of
trade growth offered by Hummels and Klenow (2002) that provides insights into whether the United States is trading more of the
same goods with NAFTA partners since 1993, or trading new products. The results provide evidence of both. A sizeable
component of U.S. trade growth since 1993 can be explained by increases in the variety of products the U.S. imports from
Mexico.

“A Definition at Last, But What Does it All Mean?” Newspaper Coverage of Organic Food
Production and its Effects on Milk Purchases
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Kiesel,
Kristin.
This paper estimates the effects of media coverage of organic food production on food purchases. Information from several data
sources links national and local newspaper coverage to fluid milk purchases. An analysis of weekly store-level scanner data in a
differences-in-differences approach results in a 5% increase in organic milk sales relative to conventional milk sales. Increases in
intensity of news coverage increase this relative difference in sales. Differentiating effects by media context further suggests that
product category specific coverage increases sales more than general coverage. Critical coverage does not result in significant
effects on organic milk sales.

The nature of indemnities and reliance on futures price averaging during two distinct time intervals throughout the production year
imply Crop Revenue Coverage (CRC) insurance behaves like an exotic put option. Treating this type of insurance as a derivative
security, an analytical model is developed and an algorithm for solving the model to place a lower bound on insurance premiums

determine lower-bound estimates for insurance premiums on corn gross revenue under specified price and yield distributions.

A Descriptive Analysis of Recent Trends in the International Market for Dry Milk Products
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Gould,
Brian W.; Villarreal,
Hector J.
This Discussion Paper provides a comprehensive description of longer-term trends for exports and world prices of dry milk
products. The importance of U.S. exports of dry milk products is suggested by figures in the paper showing that in 2000, 17% of
U.S. nonfat dry milk, 35% of dry whey, 47% of lactose, and 11% of whey protein concentrates were exported. The
Gould-Villarreal study documents the decline in world trade in nonfat dry milk and expansion of world trade in whole milk
powder. The paper suggests that collective product mix decisions of the U.S. dairy industry are partially out-of-sync with world
demand. Other implications for U.S. dairy exporters of changes in world demand for dry milk products are discussed.

nearly two-thirds of the faculty in our data set currently holding the rank of full professor, differences in annual salary exist
primarily for faculty at Top 6 programs, and then primarily for full professors. Our regression analysis suggests that controlling

A DESCRIPTIVE AND ECONOMETRIC ANALYSIS OF RELATIONSHIPS IN THE RICE
SUBSECTOR OF BURKINA FASO
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Hebie,
Sekou.
As in almost all sub-Saharan African countries, agriculture plays an important role in the economic life of Burkina Faso. The
World Bank's 1983 report indicates that agriculture's contribution to the country's Gross Domestic Product (GDP) was 41 percent
in 1981 compared to 16 percent for the industrial sector. In 1980, exports of agricultural products (basically cotton, groundnuts,
and livestock) accounted for 89 percent of total export earnings. The country is primarily agricultural, with nearly 90 percent of
the population dependent on agriculture as a livelihood. Yet it is well known today that Burkina Faso, going into its third decade
as a sovereign nation, is still facing, like its Sahelian counterparts, one of the biggest challenges of economic...

A desinformação como obstáculo ao consumo da carne suína in natura

Augusto Hauber.
Desde a década de 70 a suinocultura vem evoluindo significativamente, tornando-se uma moderna cadeia produtiva. Atualmente
os produtores criam o suíno moderno com 55% a 60% de carne magra na carcaça e apenas de 1,0 a 1,5 centímetro de espessura de
toucinho. Essa evolução faz com que mundialmente seja a carne mais consumida. No Brasil, contudo, o consumo de carne suína
seguiu tendência contrária, quando comparado ao resto do mundo. Esta inversão de valores pode ser explicada por hábitos e
tradições regionais e questões de saúde, essas últimas repletas de mitos e informações distorcidas, que prejudicam a imagem da
carne suína in natura. Sendo assim, o objetivo deste estudo foi avaliar o grau de informação dos consumidores, a respeito da carne

Policymakers, managers of water use associations, and many others in developing countries are considering policy actions that
will directly or indirectly change the costs and availability of groundwater and surface water for agricultural users. While in
many cases such actions may bring about welcomed increases in water use efficiency, little is known about the likely effects of
changes in irrigation costs or water access on farmer behavior, or on farmer incomes in the short or long runs, and virtually
nothing is known about the detailed immediate or knock-on effects on water resources that such policy actions might cause. This
paper reports the preliminary results of research aiming to fill these large scientific gaps by developing a detailed hydrologic...

With the recent proliferation of Regional Trade Agreements (RTAs) the tendency world-wide has been seemingly toward trade
liberalization.
This thesis is primarily concerned with the impacts RTAs have had in the Western Hemisphere regarding
agricultural trade flows. Utilizing the framework of the Gravity Model, agricultural trade flows for 24 Western Hemisphere
Nations were examined. In the course of the study it was expected that if RTAs were to have an effect it would be a positive Trade
Creation Effect and a negative Trade Diversion Effect with positive effects for GDP of importer/exporter and population size of
importer/exporter and a negative effect for that of distance. Of the five agreements examined (NAFTA, AC, MERCO, LAIA,

The objective of this research was to provide USAID with a diagnostic-prescriptive assessment of the mango commodity system

how a market-guided food systems approach could be applied to a particular commodity, thus facilitating coordination of
vertical stages in the agricultural production and marketing system. The food systems approach begins with identification of
consumer requirements in terms of product specifications and volume flows, examines the production changes necessary to
achieve these requirements, then systematically diagnoses constraints at each stage in the production/marketing chain, and

This paper investigates the dialectic between social restructuring and technical change within the transition to capitalism in Greek
agriculture. Contrary to neo-populist interpretations, it is argued that capitalism has developed considerably, and that technical
change has played a major role in the process of class differentiation and capitalist development. While the new capitalist strategy
for agricultural restructuring has reinforced the process of concentration and capitalist development, with a devastating impact on
small farmers, it is argued that the social conflicts involved and the recent agrarian mobilisations tend to form an alternative
strategy for the semi-proletarianised 'working class', negating both neo-populism and capitalist...

Most American diets do not meet Federal Food Guide Pyramid dietary recommendations. On average, people consume too many
servings of added fats and sugars and too few servings of fruits, vegetables, dairy products, lean meats, and foods made from
whole grains compared with a reference set of Food Guide Pyramid serving recommendations appropriate to the age and gender
composition of the U.S. population. In addition, while the healthfulness of diets has improved over time, the pace of improvement
has been uneven. For example, while Americans consumed record amounts of fruits and vegetables in 1996, consumption of
caloric sweeteners also reached a 27-year high. This report is the first dietary assessment to use ERSís time-series food supply

A 'DIFFERENTIAL' DIFFERENTIAL DEMAND SYSTEM
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Mancuso,
Anthony J.
Traditionally, estimation of demand systems is predicated on the validity of several axioms of consumer behavior. While such
abstractions make empirical work easier, they can also overlook important economic behavior. Because the price of a good does
not reflect the total cost of purchase, there is reason to believe that consumer responses to changes in price are not continuous.
Utilizing a regime switching model, we show that there are indeed important threshold effects, and that these effects bias elasticity
estimates toward zero.

A DIFFERENTIATED GOODS MODEL OF THE EFFECTS OF EUROPEAN POLICIES IN

Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Alston,
Julian M.; Scobie,
Grant M.
The Common Agricultural Policy increases European poultry production costs, prohibits imports, increases domestic prices, and
subsidizes exports. This policy has displaced some U.S. exports. However, the net impact in the U.S. has been quite modest, even
assuming poultry is homogeneous, independent of source country. Costs to U.S. producers are almost entirely offset by gains to
U.S. consumers. Effects in the U.S. are even smaller when imperfect substitutability between poultry from different countries is
accounted for. A retaliatory U.S. export subsidy would have more dramatic effects in U.S. markets.

A diffusion model for the adoption of agricultural innovations in structured adopting populations
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: McRoberts,
Neil; Franke,
A.C.
We introduce a new model for examining the dynamics of uptake of technological innovations in agricultural systems, using the
adoption of zero-till wheat in the rice-wheat system in Haryana state, India, as a case study. A new equation is derived which
describes the dynamics of adoption over time and takes into account the effect of aggregation (e.g. on a spatial and/or cultural
basis) in the adopting population on the rate of adoption. The model extends previous phenomenological models by removing the
assumption of homogeneity in the non-adopting fraction of the population. We show how factors affecting the per capita rate of
adoption can be captured using cognitive mapping and simulate the dynamics of the adoption process.

This article introduces discourse analysis as a theoretical concept and an empirical methodology that may enable the
endogenization of path creation and path breaking changes in conventional models of political path dependencies. Economic
criteria such as rents created by a policy do not always provide a comprehensive explanation for path dependent political
decisions. Discourse theory implies that specific interpretative schemata and narratives, such as storylines in the mass media,
heavily influence the political discourse. Discourses themselves exercise a constitutive power that constrains decision-making
processes and, thus, influence the ensuing policy creation path. Hence, discourses must be taken into account when political path
creation is...

open space provision. We also analyze the optimal provision of open space across neighborhoods. In equilibrium, housing density
and price in a neighborhood is increasing in the amount of open space provided in that neighborhood. Whether housing density
and prices in other neighborhoods increases or decreases depends on whether the push from reduced availability of developable

Applied partial and general equilibrium models used to examine trade policy are almost universally sensitive to trade elasticities.
Indeed, the Armington elasticity, the degree of substitution between domestic and imported goods, is a key behavioral parameter
that drives the quantitative, and sometimes the qualitative, results that policymakers use. While standard transparent approaches to
econometric estimation of these elasticities have been offered for the last 30 years, the estimates are viewed as too small by many
trade economists. A few robust findings emerge from the econometric literature: (1) more disaggregate analyses find higher
elasticities, (2) long-run estimates are higher than short-run estimates, and (3) time series analyses generally find...

This paper traces the economic impact of the costs of foodborne illness on the U.S. economy using a Social Accounting Matrix
(SAM) framework. Previous estimates of the costs of seven foodborne pathogens are disaggregated by type, and distributed across
the population using data from the National Health Interview Survey. Initial income losses resulting from premature death cause a
decrease in economic activity. Medical costs, in contrast, result in economic growth, though this growth does not outweigh the
total costs of premature death. A SAM accounting of how the costs of illness are diffused through the economy provides useful
information for policy makers.

commercial shark fishery have proposed such an approach to manage the overcapacity in their fishery in the Gulf of Mexico and
Atlantic regions. This program would allow owners to submit willingness-to-accept (WTA) bids for their permits and vessels.

This study develops a unique double-hurdle model of demand for composite food commodities which endogenizes unit values.
The model structure allows us to account for the inability to observe such values for non-purchasing households and
simultaneously adjusts for quality demand effects reflected in these unit values.
Application to Mexican household food
expenditure data shows the importance of controlling for the quality of composite goods. We find that poultry and pork
expenditures depend on both quantity demanded and quality desired.

Autores: Keelan,

Carol F.
The aim of this paper is to analyse the various factors fuelling demand for Food- Away - From- Home (FAFH) in Ireland. The two
largest components of this industry, the quick- service sector (fast food and takeaway) and the full- service sector (hotel and
restaurant meals), are analysed using the most recently available Household Budget Survey data for Ireland. The results from a
Box- Cox double hurdle model indicate that different variables affect expenditure in the different sectors in different ways.
Income has a greater effect on full- service expenditure than on quick- service. Similarly households that are healthconscious
indicate a greater preference for full- service meals while households with higher time values indicate a greater preference for...

A Dual Approach to Estimation With Constant Prices

Autores: Paris,
Quirino; Caputo,
Michael R.
In a recent paper, Mundlak assumes that the price-taking, risk-neutral and profit-maximizing entrepreneur makes his decisions on
the basis of a planning model that maximizes expected profit using expected prices. In the same paper, the author asserts that
when there is no sample price variation across competitive firms, it is impossible to estimate the supply and factor demand
functions from cross-section data using a dual approach. In a famous paper, titled “To Dual or not to Dual,” Pope asserted a
similar opinion. This paper shows that, using Mundlak’s assumption about planning decisions based upon expected profit, it is
possible to use a dual estimator to estimate supply and factor demand functions. This objective is achieved by using Mundlak’s...

Our paper analyzes consumer preferences toward fresh rabbit meat and alternative marketing formats for rabbit meat. The
empirical analysis uses consumer-level questionnaires to elicit information regarding consumer attitudes toward rabbit meat in
Catalonia (Spain). We use the Dual Response Choice Experiment (DRCE) design which allows for analyzing forced and unforced
options in choice experiments using the same sample. The Heteroscedastic Extreme- Value (HEV) model is used due to its
relaxation of the restrictive assumption made in the Multinomial Logit Model regarding the identically distributed error term
across alternatives. Our results demonstrate a higher preference for rabbit meat from “Catalan” origin followed by higher quality

Romania as well the regional differences in the development have deep roots in the economic history. The signs of the economic
crises emerged after the transition of the economy has led to a deepening gap featuring the development of the country. It became
clear that the measures and the policy of the regional development applied so far are not satisfactory. The growing access to the

A Dynamic Adoption Model with Bayesian Learning: Application to the U.S. Soybean Market

Agricultural technology adoption is often a sequential process. Farmers may adopt a new technology in part of their land first and
then adjust in later years based on what they learn from the earlier partial adoption. This paper presents a dynamic adoption model
with Bayesian learning, in which forward-looking farmers learn from their own experience and from their neighbors about the
new technology. The model is compared to that of a myopic model, in which farmers only maximize their current benefits. We
apply the analysis to a sample of U.S. soybean farmers from year 2000 to 2004 to examine their adoption pattern of a newly
developed genetically modified (GM) seed technology. We show that the myopic model predicts lower adoption rates in early
years than...

A Dynamic Analysis of Food Demand Patterns in Urban China

Previous researchers have encountered difficulties in rationalizing the extremely high expenditure elasticities estimated for grain
demanded by urban Chinese households. The high grain expenditure elasticities, which usually translate into high income
elasticities, are doubtful for making a long-term prediction of grain demand in China. Unlike most previous studies using only
statistic models, this study employs a dynamic Almost Ideal Demand System (DAIDS) incorporating demographic variables to
explore the impact of habit effects as well as demographic impacts on household level food demand pattern in urban China. Most
dynamic elements and demographic variables are found significant. The theoretical demand properties cannot be rejected in the
DAIDS model...

Irrigation with saline waters is a major problem in many parts of the world. Economic questions have usually been addressed
using synthesized production functions and theoretically based soil salinity relations. The purpose of this paper is to estimate
functions relating crop yield and salt accumulation in the soil to initial soil salinity and water quantity and quality. Crop response
functions and dynamic salt balance relations are estimated from experimental data for alfalfa and cotton. The estimated functions
are then used in a dynamic programming model to determine optimal water applications for different levels of initial soil salinity
and crop and water prices.

The economic viability of alternative and more sustainable agriculture farming systems depend on the value of farm profits. These

profit maximization the instantaneous marginal benefits are equated to the marginal costs of production. Where as in the long-run

This study presents an econometric analysis of the effects of a government price support program on price dynamics and price
volatility. Price support programs, a common feature of agricultural policy, provide a lower-bound censoring of the distribution
of market prices. An econometric model of market prices is developed using a dynamic Tobit specification under time-varying
volatility. The model is applied to the U.S. non-fat dry milk market. It is used to investigate the impact of market liberalization
on price dynamics and price volatility in the presence of private and public stocks. The econometric results show how the price
support program and stocks (both private and public) affect expected price volatility.

A dynamic model is developed to analyze farmers' irrigation investment and crop choice decisions under alternative water quality
protection policies. The model is applied to an empirical example in the Oklahoma High Plains. The choices of crops and
irrigation systems and the resulting levels of irrigation, income, and nitrogen runoff and percolation are simulated over a ten-year
period. An effluent tax on nitrogen runoff and percolation is shown to be effective in reducing nitrate pollution. The efficacy of
cost sharing in adopting modern irrigation technologies and restrictions on irrigation water use depends on soil type. A tax on
nitrogen use is shown to be the least effective policy.

The economics of a higher loan rate to support US wheat prices is analysed. Utilising optimal control theory, a dynamic wheat

This chapter uses a new ecological-economic approach to analyze the role of time in range management in a dynamic and
stochastic setting. We first construct a theoretical model of a parcel of rangeland in which time restrictions are used to manage the
land. We then show how the dynamic and the stochastic properties of this rangeland can be used to construct two managerial
objectives that are ecologically and economically meaningful. Finally, using these two objectives, we discuss an approach to range
management in which the manager has two interrelated goals. This manager maximizes the profits from range operations and
(s)he also takes steps to move the rangeland away from the least desirable state of existence.

A Dynamic Bioeconomic Model of Ivory Trade: Details and Extended Results

Trade in ivory is banned under CITES in an effort to protect the African elephant. The trade ban is supported by some range
states, most notably Kenya, because they see the ban as an effective means for protecting a ‘flagship’ species, one that attracts
tourists and foreign aid. It is opposed by some states, mainly in southern Africa, because their elephant populations are exceeding
the capacity of local ecosystems with culling and other sources have resulted in the accumulation of large stocks of ivory. They
argue that ivory trade will benefit elephant populations. The question of whether an ivory trade ban will protect elephant
populations is addressed in this paper using a dynamic partial-equilibrium model that consists of four ivory exporting regions...

differences in the evolution of these costs over time, as well as the differential impacts of different states of nature on investment

The starting point is the

We develop a coupled model of regional migration and lake ecology to study the influence of ecological-economic interactions

by eliminating steady states that are present in the decoupled economic model and introduce important time dependence. We
find that the relative time scales of interacting variables are a key determinant in system dynamics and resilience and that the
system's asymptotic behavior cannot be determined without considering the full dynamics of the system. Other time-dependent
effects are found to matter, e.g., when households base their perceptions of environmental amenities on past observation, a path...

A dynamic model of oligopoly in the coffee export market
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Karp,
Larry S.; Perloff,
Jeffrey M.
A linear-quadratic, dynamic feedback oligopoly model that nests various market structures is used to estimate the degree of
competitiveness and the adjustment paths of the two largest coffee exporters, Brazil and Colombia. Their estimated behavior is
relatively competitive. This subgame perfect dynamic model is-compared to a standard static oligopoly model and the open-loop
model (the dynamic generalization of the standard static model). Both classical and Bayesian tests of open-loop and feedback
dynamic models are reported.

A Dynamic Nutrient Carryover Model for Pastoral Soils and its Application to Optimising Fertiliser
Allocation to Several Blocks with a Cost Constraint
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Woodward,
Simon J.R.
A dynamical model of soil phosphorus carryover in grazed pasture provides the basis for bioeconomic optimization of fertiliser
rates. A linear constraint is introduced to optimise the allocation of limited funds to fertiliser on several farm blocks, each of
which represents a different land and/or stock class. The optimal constrained maintenance application of fertiliser to each block is
calculated, and an heuristic approach to this equilibrium is suggested. In some cases this involves withholding of fertiliser from
unresponsive blocks. The dynamical model and economic optimisation method have been implemented in a commercial fertiliser
planning decision support tool Outlook.

John C.; Mullen,
Jeffrey D.; Wetzstein,
Michael E.
This paper presents a dynamic crop rotation model that shows how crop yield and price volatility could impact crop mix and
acreage response under crop rotation considerations. Specifically, a discrete Markov decision model is utilized to optimize
producers’ crop rotation decision within a finite horizon. By maximizing net present value of expected current and future profits, a
modified Bellman equation helps develop optimum planting decisions. This model is capable of simulating crop rotations with
different lengths and structures. Specifically, the corn-soybeans rotations were simulated using the crop rotation model.

A Dynamic Optimisation of Summer/Autumn Feeding Strategies for Wool Production in the
Mediterranean Environment of Western Australia
Provedor de dados: 31
Autores: Wang,
K.M.; Curtis,
K.M.S.
To counteract declining quantity and poor quality of paddock feed over summer/autumn, farmers in Western Australia must
decide how much of which supplement to provide to grazing sheep to optimise the use of supplements. The solution is
complicated by the interaction of biological and economic factors and the intertemporal nature of the problem. A dynamic
programming approach was used to determine optimal feeding strategies for different starting conditions. Lupin seed was
preferred to oats for weaners when paddock feed was abundant, while oats was preferred for weaners and adults when paddock
feed was scarce. The optimal feeding rate usually starts low and then gradually increases to higher rates as the autumn break
approaches.

Autores: MacPherson,
Alexander J.; Moore,
Rebecca; Provencher,
Bill.
This paper presents a dynamic principal-agent model of aquatic species invasions in which a manager, concerned about the spread
of invasive species across lakes by boaters, sets interseasonal management controls on a lake-by-lake basis, and boaters make a
series of intraseasonal trip decisions to maximize random utility during the course of the season, conditional on the controls
imposed by the manager. The results of a simulated invasion of Eurasian watermilfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum) highlight
interesting aspects of the optimal management policies under two different management objectives: maximizing boater welfare
and minimizing milfoil spread.

Weeds and fungal diseases cause significant losses to grain crops in Australia. In many cases cultural methods of control are
effective. However, it is often difficult for farm decision-makers to select the optimum crop rotation, from an economic point of
view, given the technical constraints they face. A decision to plant a particular crop will have implications for both current and
future profitability because the current decision will alter the constraints faced by the decision-maker in subsequent periods.
Dynamic programming is used to solve the rotation problem faced by grain growers in north-western New South Wales in areas
where the weed, wild oats (A vena falua or A vena ludoviciana), and the disease, crown rot (Fusarium graminearum Group I),

The model, which is based on dynamic programming, enables identification of the sequence of actions in a drought which will
lead to the minimum expected cost subject to constraints. The model has been prepared as a tool which may be used to assist
graziers to make decisions in a drought. The constraints consist of an upper limit on the number of a particular type of livestock
which may be agisted (or droved) in a drought, an upper limit on the number sold and an upper limit on cash outlay. Actions
assumed available to the grazier are sale of livestock, agistment (or droving), and supplementary feeding (or allowing mortality).

We employ a heavily modified ‘agricultural’ variant of the GTAP model and a realistic baseline scenario to assess the impact on
the Greek economy from a hypothetical ‘hub and spoke’ and a ‘FTA’ EUMED agro-food and fisheries trade agreement. Long run
estimates show that Greek agro-food and fisheries sectors are not seriously affected, where surprisingly, trade diversionary losses
to Greece from the FTA scenario are minor given minimal south-south trade links between Mediterranean Partner Countries
(MPC). Further research shows that under complete CAP decoupling, notable additional welfare gains for MPC are realised,
whilst Greece stands to lose approximately €300 million.
