BASE REVENUE PROTECTION AND REVENUE COUNTERCYCLICAL PROGRAMS FOR SOYBEANS IN NORTH DAKOTA AgEcon
Aakre, Dwight G.; Haugen, Ronald H.; Swenson, Andrew L..
The National Corn Growers Association Public Policy Team’s Base Revenue Projection Program (BRP) and the Revenue Countercyclical Program (RCCP) were analyzed. The analysis was done for soybeans using the BRP-RCCP calculator, as developed by the National Corn Growers Association. Three representative counties (Cass, Stutsman and Benson) were chosen in North Dakota. Historic and projected data were used to analyze 2002 to 2010 crop years. A comparison of the BRP-RCCP programs to the current farm program was done. From 2002 to 2005, all counties would have received more payments with the BRP-RCCP program than they would have received under the current farm program. Benson County would benefit the most from this program, receiving $58.56 per acre more during...

BASE REVENUE PROTECTION AND REVENUE COUNTERCYCLICAL PROGRAMS FOR SPRING WHEAT IN NORTH DAKOTA AgEcon
Aakre, Dwight G.; Haugen, Ronald H.; Swenson, Andrew L..
The National Corn Growers Association Public Policy Team’s Base Revenue Projection Program (BRP) and the Revenue Countercyclical Program (RCCP) were analyzed. The analysis was done for spring wheat using the BRP-RCCP calculator, as developed by the National Corn Growers Association. Three representative counties (Hettinger, Ward and Cavalier) were chosen in North Dakota. Historic and projected data were used to analyze 2002 to 2010 crop years. A comparison of the BRP-RCCP programs to the current farm program was done. From 2002 to 2005, Ward County would have received nearly identical payments under the BRP-RCCP program and the current farm program. The Hettinger County farm would have received considerably more under the BRP-RCCP program - $76.87 per...

BASE REVENUE PROTECTION AND REVENUE COUNTERCYCLICAL PROGRAMS FOR CORN IN NORTH DAKOTA AgEcon
Aakre, Dwight G.; Haugen, Ronald H.; Swenson, Andrew L..
The National Corn Growers Association Public Policy Team’s Base Revenue Projection Program (BRP) and the Revenue Countercyclical Program (RCCP) were analyzed. The analysis was done for corn using the BRP-RCCP calculator, as developed by the National Corn Growers Association. Three representative counties (Richland, Barnes and Foster) were chosen in North Dakota. Historic and projected data were used to analyze 2002 to 2010 crop years. A comparison of the BRP-RCCP programs to the current farm program was done. For 2002 to 2005, Barnes County would have received more total payments under the BRP-RCCP program than with the current farm program. The gain would have been $24.12 per acre during the four years. Richland and Foster counties would have received...

The Benefits of a Rules-Based Maize Marketing Policy: Results of an Experimental Study of Zambia AgEcon
Abbink, Klaus; Jayne, Thomas S.; Moller, Lars C..
• Strategic interaction between market players affects the performance of grain markets and the risk of food crises. Strategic dilemmas can arise if traders don’t trust government announcements on future maize purchases or if the government does not trust stock estimates provided by the private sector. • Government “pre-commitment” (announcing in advance how and when it will operate in the market and then behaving in a consistent manner) is found to produce superior welfare outcomes to “discretionary intervention” whereby the government operates in an unpredictable and ad hoc manner in markets. Situations of food shortage and over-supply were much more frequent under a discretionary policy environment because of the risk of poor coordination between the...

THE MARKETING STRUCTURE AND PERFORMANCE OF THE OLIVE OIL INDUSTRY IN TUNISIA AgEcon
Abdelkafi, Belhassen.
In terms of value added, olive oil is one of the most important agricultural commodities in Tunisia. It is also the most important agricultural export commodity. Tunisia ranks second to Spain in world olive oil exports. Currently these exports account for about 20 percent of total export earnings of Tunisia. This is equivalent to about 40 percent of total agricultural export earnings. Tunisia is by far the largest olive oil producing country in North Africa and the Middle East and ranks sixth among the world's producers of olive oil. Considering the adaptability of the olive tree to the climate and soil conditions of Tunisia, olive culture is expected to maintain its importance in Tunisian agriculture. However, the economic benefits which could be...

Cropping Structures Adjustments Under Water Limitations in the Egyptian Agriculture AgEcon
Abdou, Amin I..
Using programming methods, the two models of cropping structures suggested by the study were remarkably different. The first model considered water availability levels, while the second tried to optimize its use. As such, some cash crops were excluded from the second model as water extensive users, such as some kinds of fruits. Hence, the second type models expected net revenues and benefit-cost ratios dropped to nearly one-third the corresponding estimates of the first type, and about 10-20% higher than those of the actual cropping structures in average. Accordingly, encouraging farmers to adopt cropping patterns of rational water use would be in vain unless fortified by taxation tools and guidance toward efficient methods of cost reduction and/or yields...

Responses of Egyptian Food Crops Producers to New Economic Policies: Cases of Wheat and Rice AgEcon
Abdou, Amin I..
The formerly neglected wheat production is recovering under policies of economic reform and liberalization. The most effective factors are the continuous price raises and the relatively low production costs which should continue, along with attempts to improve yields and reduce costs, if to avoid imports re-expansion. As for rice, its production expansion potentials are constrained by water limitations. However, the ongoing price increases may motivate attempts to reduce both production costs and post-harvest enormous losses. Exports may be promoted as such, hardly threatening satisfaction of domestic needs, at least in the foreseen future.

Water Saving Technology in Chinese Rice Production - Evidence from Survey Data AgEcon
Abdulai, Awudu; Glauben, Thomas; Herzfeld, Thomas; Zhou, Shudong.
Whereas water is an important input in rice production, China faces severe problems with increasing demand for water and limited water resources. In conventional paddy production, one of the most important irrigated crops, a significant amount of irrigation water is lost due to percolation and evaporation. Therefore, it exist a vivid research in water saving rice technologies. This paper analyzes the adoption of one of these water-saving rice production technologies, the so-called Ground Cover Rice Production System (GCRPS), in the Hubei province. Based on farm survey data several factors which affect the adoption decision could be identified. The adoption decision is treated as a binary choice problem and therefore a probit model is used for the...

AN EXAMINATION OF PROFIT INEFFICIENCY OF RICE FARMERS IN NORTHERN GHANA AgEcon
Abdulai, Awudu; Huffman, Wallace E..
This paper employs a stochastic frontier model to examine profit inefficiency of rice farmers in the Northern Region of Ghana using farm-level survey data. The efficiency index, based on a half-normal distribution of the stochastic error term is related to farm and household characteristics. The empirical results show that farmers' human capital represented by the level of schooling contributes positively to production efficiency, suggesting that investment in farmers' education improves their allocative performance. Access to credit and greater specialization in rice production, are found to be positively related to production efficiency. A farmer's participation in nonfarm employment and being older, however, reduce production efficiency. Farmers...

ESTIMATION OF RISK AVERSION COEFFICIENTS FOR DRYLAND WHEAT AND IRRIGATED CORN ENTERPRISES IN KANSAS AgEcon
Abdulkadri, Abdullahi O.; Langemeier, Michael R..
The risk attitudes of dryland wheat and irrigated corn enterprises in Kansas have been examined in this paper using the nonlinear mean-standard deviation approach. Our results showed that dryland wheat enterprises are characterized by increasing absolute and increasing relative risk aversion. The level of wealth is noted to have an impact on risk attitudes.

Development and Dissemination of Improved Cassava Varieties in Uganda: Analysis of Adoption Rates, Variety Attributes and Speed of Adoption AgEcon
Abele, Steffen; Twine, Edgar; Ntawuruhunga, Pheneas; Baguma, Yonah; Kanobe, Charles; Bua, Anthony.
The transition out of extreme poverty and hunger in agrarian economies requires an understanding of how new agricultural technologies are adopted by poor farmers. In Uganda, improved germplasm from the cassava breeding program has generated new varieties that are increasingly being grown by farmers. Although considerable success has been achieved in adoption of these varieties in general, there is increasing pressure on breeding and technology dissemination programs to improve the targeting of their efforts. This paper identifies the specific cassava varieties adopted thus far and their desirable and undesirable attributes. In addition, it determines the adoption rates of these varieties and the factors that have influenced the speed of adoption of the...

Contracts for Grain Biosecurity and Grain Quality AgEcon
Abougamos, Hoda; White, Benedict; Sadler, Rohan.
The export of grain from Western Australia depends upon a grain supply network that takes grain from farm to port through Cooperative Bulk Handling receival and storage sites. The ability of the network to deliver pest free grain to the port and onto ship depends upon the quality of grain delivered by farmers and the efficacy of phosphine based fumigation in controlling stored grain pests. Phosphine fumigation is critical to the grain supply network because it is the cheapest effective fumigant. In addition, it is also residue free. Unfortunately, over time, common stored-grain pests have evolved to develop resistance to phosphine and there is a risk that phosphine will become less effective and may need to be replaced with more expensive alternative...

Poverty Alleviation in the Horticulture Sector: Insights from Uganda and Vietnam AgEcon
Achterbosch, Thom J.; Allbritton, Amanda; Quang, Dang Viet; Eaton, Derek J.F.; de Jager, Andre; Meijerink, Gerdien W.; Njue, Evelyn; Ssonko, Robinah; Stallen, Marcel; Wertheim-Heck, Sigrid; van Wijk, Siebe.
There is increasing insight into how household poverty in rural and peri-urban areas is affected by developments in the markets for fruit, vegetables and flowers. This study extends the knowledge, and feeds into the debate on agricultural growth policies. Based on a positive outlook on the growth of horticultural production and distribution and marketing in the low income countries of Uganda and Vietnam, this paper asks whether poor and vulnerable groups in society share in the benefits of the foreseen economic expansion. Primary survey data is collected on the differentiated position of low-income households in different supply structures (with varying levels of vertical coordination) and markets (national, regional and international markets). The data...

IMPACTS OF POLICY REFORM ON SUSTAINABILITY OF HILL FARMING IN UK BY MEANS OF BIO-ECONOMIC MODELLING AgEcon
Acs, Szvetlana; Hanley, Nick; Dallimer, Martin; Robertson, Philip; Gaston, Kevin J.; Armsworth, Paul R..
Hill farming in UK is experiencing very difficult economic circumstances and many farmers rely on subsidies provided by the government for a large fraction of their income. The Peak District National Park is used as a case study to examine how farmers might respond to current policy changes � in particular, the move from area- and headage-based payments to the Single Farm Payment, and how optimal business plans should respond to these changes. The objective of this paper is thus to develop production models that predict how farmers will respond to changing policy framework conditions. For this purpose socio-economic surveys were carried out on 44 sample farms, in order to investigate how the land is managed on hill farms including ongoing policies and...
