EFFECT OF GENERIC PROMOTION OF FLOWERS ON THE USE OF RETAIL FLOWER OUTLETS AgEcon
Rimal, Arbindra; Ward, Ronald W..
AIDs demand models are used to test if the generic promotion of fresh-cut flowers influenced the market shares for florists, supermarkets, and other retail outlets. Were the generic efforts outlet neutral? Generic promotions of fresh-cut flowers is shown to be outlet neutral while the brand advertising increased florists' market share.

FREEZE RISK AND ADOPTION OF TECHNOLOGY BY ORANGE PRODUCERS AgEcon
Schmitz, Andrew; Rimal, Arbindra.
Orange producers in many regions of the U.S. are affected by the recurrence of frost. This study evaluated 147 California farmers' perceptions of frost risk relative to other business risks. Freeze risk perception was negatively related, for example, to farm size. Large farmers with diversified businesses had lower perceptions of freeze risk than small farmers. Change in crop location and the adoption of anti-frost technology were two important responses to freeze risk. California farmers shifted their location to frost-prone areas and adopted anti-frost technology. Florida farmers, however, diversified to less frost-prone areas and adopted new planting technologies instead of anti-frost technologies. Key words: anti-frost technologies,...

DO HANDLING AND COOKING PRACTICES DETERMINE THE SELECTION OF IRRADIATED BEEF? AgEcon
Rimal, Arbindra; Fletcher, Stanley M.; McWatters, Kay H..
A censored negative binomial regression model was used to study the relationships between the selection of irradiated beef packages, the beef storage and cooking processes, and demographics. Data were collected using a supermarket simulation technique and an exit survey of a panel of Georgia consumers. The results showed that those shoppers who stored (refrigerated) ground beef packages before cooking or freezing were likely to choose more irradiated ground beef packages in a trip to supermarkets than were those who cooked or froze the products immediately. Shoppers making meat loaf and pan-frying ground beef, and grilling, roasting, and braising muscle forms (top round and rib eye steaks) were likely to choose more irradiated packages of ground and muscle...

ACTUAL PURCHASE VS. INTENDED PURCHASE: DO CONSUMERS BUY WHAT THEY SAY? AgEcon
Rimal, Arbindra; Fletcher, Stanley M.; McWatters, Kay H..
A bivariate probit model was used to examine the relationship between actual and intended purchase of irradiated beef. The likelihood ratio test rejected the equality of parameters affecting actual and intended purchase decisions. Actual purchases were affected by package labels and appearance, while purchase intentions were affected by attitude and demographics.

INFLUENCE OF PRODUCT ATTRIBUTES AND HOUSEHOLD CHARACTERISTICS ON CONSUMERS' ATTITUDE TOWARD AND PURHCASE PATTERN OF IN-SHELL PEANUTS AgEcon
Rimal, Arbindra; Fletcher, Stanley M..
A nationwide household survey was used to examine U.S. consumers' attitude and purchase behavior toward in-shell peanuts. Fishbein's multiattribute model was the basis for evaluating the effects of perceived product attributes on attitudes toward in-shell peanuts. Consumer purchase behavior was analyzed using a count data model. The results suggest that attitudes toward in-shell peanuts were influenced by attributes such as fat, taste, and healthiness, and that taste was the only attribute influencing consumers' purchase decisions. Consumers who perceived that in-shell peanuts contained undesirable nutritional ingredients, such as fat and cholesterol, developed unfavorable attitudes toward in-shell peanuts. These perceptions translated into reduced...

NUTRITION CONSIDERATIONS IN FOOD SELECTION AgEcon
Rimal, Arbindra; Fletcher, Stanley M.; McWatters, Kay H..
The importance of nutrition consideration to households in food selection is instrumental in the development of information programs to promote public health and to market healthy food. Using a national telephone survey of 2880 U.S. households, this study examines the role and influence of socio-economic characteristics and lifestyle on a household meal planner’s consideration of four dietary components in food selection. Household income, children in households, geographic location, and gender, age, education, and lifestyle of meal planners affected the consideration of dietary components in food selection. The results provide a basis for developing education programs that focus on the particular dietary considerations of identified demographic...

RELATIVE AND ABSOLUTE RISK FORMAT IN ELICITING WILLINGNESS-TO-PAY FOR BEEF IRRADIATION AgEcon
Rimal, Arbindra; Fletcher, Stanley M.; McWatters, Kay H..
The relationship between the valuation of reduced risk through irradiation and framing of risk information was determined using absolute and relative risk formats. A double-bounded CV survey was used to measure willingness-to-pay (WTP) for irradiated beef among 740 U.S. households. Results show that the WTP was sensitive to the risk formats.

SNACK PEANUTS PURCHASE PATTERN: EFFECTS OF NUTRITIONAL CONSIDERATIONS AND HOUSEHOLD CHARACTERISTICS AgEcon
Rimal, Arbindra; Fletcher, Stanley M..
This study examines the effect of a meal planner's nutritional awareness, exercise habits, and household socioeconomic characteristics on market participation and frequency of purchase of snack peanuts. Data are from a household survey of 2880 U.S. households collected by Gallup in 1997. Statistical tests showed that a double-hurdle or Cragg model best represented consumers' participation and purchase level decisions in the snack peanut market. The results indicated that meal planner's nutritional considerations while making food purchase decisions had little effect on the participation level decisions, but did affect purchase frequency of snack peanuts. Those household meal planners who were overly concerned about undesirable nutritional factors...

THE EFFECTS OF IRRATIONAL RESPONSES IN CONTINGENT VALUATION SURVEY AND THE APPROPRIATE TREATMENT AgEcon
He, Senhui; Fletcher, Stanley M.; Rimal, Arbindra.
This paper investigates the effects of irrational responses on stated willingness-to-pay (WTP) in a contingent valuation study. A significant portion of the respondents stated that they were willing to pay a higher price for irradiated beef which they would avoid consuming due to their concerns about the side effects of irradiation. Such responses may not reflect true WTP and may cause bias in WTP estimate. Excluding these responses from estimation may result in sample selection bias. Whereas setting the bid values presented to these responses close to zero both helped to improve the estimation model and to reduce the potential bias in WTP estimate.

Household Snack-Food Purchases: Does Nutrition Matter? AgEcon
Rimal, Arbindra; Fletcher, Stanley M..
Purchase patterns for two types of snack foods--pretzels and popcorn, and potato, corn, and tortilla chips--were analyzed using the data from a national survey. The study examined the effect of socio-economic and lifestyle factors including nutritional awareness and exercise habits of household respondents on snack-food purchase. A geometric-hurdle count-data model that distinguished between market-participation and purchase-frequency decisions revealed that the decision to participate in the market for snack food was separate from the purchase-level decision. Pretzels and popcorn consumers were unaffected by nutrition consideration of any kind. However, respondents who were overly concerned about desirable nutritional factors were unlikely to be buyers or...

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN ATTRIBUTES OF BEEF CATTLE RAISED USING ULTRASOUND TECHNOLOGY AND PRICES RECEIVED AT THE PACKERS: A HEDONIC PRICE ANALYSIS AgEcon
Rimal, Arbindra; Perkins, Tommy; Paschal, Joe C..
Sluggish growth in per capita consumption and a downward pressure on beef price at the farm level has required producers to raise cattle that precisely target the meat attributes desired by consumers. Ultrasound technology can help farmers to produce a carcass with an optimal mix of marbling and muscling, and external fat. The results of this study show a high level of accuracy of ultrasound technology in predicting carcass attributes. An estimated hedonic regression model shows that the carcass attributes are reflected on the implicit beef price. Ultrasound technology helps producers to produce carcass with the desired attributes, thus obtain a higher price.

A VALUATION OF PUBLIC DEMAND FOR THE PARTICIPATION OF NONGOVERNMENTAL AGENCIES IN MONITORING AND ENFORCING FOOD SAFETY REGULATIONS AgEcon
He, Senhui; Fletcher, Stanley M.; Rimal, Arbindra.
Lack of consumer trust in governmental food safety regulators hinders the promotion of consumer confidence in the safety of their food supply. One possible way to boost consumer trust is to allow nongovernmental agencies to participate in monitoring and enforcing food safety regulations. This study identifies factors affecting consumer desire for the participation of nongovernmental agencies. The information obtained from this study can be used in further valuation of the feasibility of the participation of nongovernmental agencies.

CONSUMPTION OF REDUCED-FAT PEANUT BUTTER IN ADDITION TO THE CONSUMPTION OF REGULAR PEANUT BUTTER AgEcon
He, Senhui; Fletcher, Stanley M.; Rimal, Arbindra.
A set of factors has been identified to affect consumption of reduced-fat peanut butter in addition to regular peanut butter. We found that consumption of reduced-fat peanut butter, which is an imperfect substitute for regular peanut butter, may expand total demand for peanut butter. Interestingly, for those who usually buy the same brand of peanut butter, their consumption of reduced-fat peanut butter is more likely in addition to consumption of regular peanut butter, implying promotion of a specific brand of reduced-fat peanut butter tend to increase total demand for the same brand of peanut butter.

Willingness-to-Accept and Willingness-to-Pay for GM and Non-GM Food: UK Consumers AgEcon
Moon, Wanki; Rimal, Arbindra; Balasubramanian, Siva K..
Our research elicited UK consumers¡¯ willingness-to-accept (WTA) discount in exchange for giving up non-GM food and willingness-to-pay (WTP) premium to purchase non-GM food. Eliciting only WTP does not provide sufficient information for determining substitutability between GM and non-GM food. Results indicate that there is a strong demand for non-GM food in the UK, but a non-negligible segment expressed their willingness to substitute non-GM food with GM version either without discount (12 %) or with discounts (34 %). This result suggests that there is an economic incentive for food industry in Europe to offer GM food to consumers.

APPLICATION OF BIOTECHNOLOGY IN AGRICULTURE AND MEDICINE: UNITED STATES VERSUS EUROPE AgEcon
Rimal, Arbindra; Moon, Wanki; Balasubramanian, Siva K..
Discrepancies in the attitude between US and UK consumers toward application of biotechnology in crop production and medicine were examined using data from mail and online surveys. Results showed that more than 31% (46%) of US (UK) respondents were opposed to biotech foods while only 16% (18%) opposed biotech medicine, respectively. Perceived risks and benefits of agro-biotechnology and medical biotechnology were significant in determining overall attitude toward application of biotechnology in agriculture and medicine i.e., perceived risks (benefits) caused consumers to oppose (support) application of biotechnology in food production and medicine.
