2011 Michigan Land Values and Leasing Rates AgEcon
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.

A AÇÃO COLETIVA DE RESISTÊNCIA À ACUMULAÇÃO CAPITALISTA NO BRASIL: CONTRADIÇÕES E QUANTITATIVO DA DEMANDA POR TERRA FRENTE AO DESAFIO DA SUSTENTABILIDADE NO CAMPO AgEcon
Santos, Gesmar Rosa; Wehrmann, Magda Eva.
Este trabalho aborda aspectos teóricos e ações dos movimentos que atuam no campo e que se propõem ocupar espaço e/ou resistir aos padrões de acumulação capitalista no Brasil. Em especial, são focados os movimentos e entidades que reivindicam inserção na agricultura e a reprodução do seu modo de vida no meio rural. Busca-se compreender a fundamentação teórica e a motivação da ação coletiva que relaciona as aspirações dos movimentos sociais de base com o discurso do uso sustentável da terra. A pesquisa realizada teve como base revisão bibliográfica e relatórios de governos, ONG’s, movimentos sociais e pesquisadores, bem como entrevistas com representantes de movimentos sociais. Partiu-se do pressuposto de que interações pró-ativas de enfrentamento ao status...

A Bayesian Total Factor Productivity Analysis of Tropical Agricultural Systems in Central-Western Africa And South-East Asia AgEcon
Tonini, Axel; Matus, Silvia Saravia; Gomez y Paloma, Sergio.
This paper computes and analyses total factor productivity (TFP) growth rates for tropical agricultural systems in Central-Western Africa and South-East Asia. Two regions that despite sharing common agro-ecological conditions, have pursued different adoption rates of green revolution technology and have reported dissimilar yields per hectare. A panel data set is constructed for the period 1987-2007 from the FAOSTAT database. A Bayesian stochastic frontier model with country specific temporal variation in technical efficiency is estimated. Technical efficiency estimates reveal that there is substantial room for improvement in both continental sub-sets and that TFP estimates show on average larger rates of growth for South-East Asian countries as compared to...

A Bibliography of Australian Farm Management Research and Publication AgEcon
Cooper, Ian M..
One of the outcomes of the merger of the Farm Management Society of Central South Australia and AARES was a project to record the history of the Australian Farm Management Society. As part of this project it was decided to develop a bibliography of Australian Farm Management Research and Publication. It has been produced as a web site to facilitate further development. One of the problems is what to include or exclude from the bibliography. This hinges on one's definition of "Farm Management". The approach taken will be explored and progress to date reported.

A Bioeconomic Model of the Soybean Aphid Treatment Decision in Soybeans AgEcon
Olson, Kent D.; Badibanga, Thaddee Mutumba.
Since its first detection in the North Central region in July 2000, the soybean aphid (Aphis glycines Matsamura) has caused considerable loss in soybean (Glycine max L.) yield, bean quality, and producer income. Discovered first in Wisconsin and then in adjoining states, it is currently distributed in 21 US states and parts of Canada. In 2003, over 42 million acres of soybean in the North Central US were infested and over 7 million acres were treated with insecticides to control soybean aphid (Landis et al. 2003). Populations exceeding 24,000 aphids per plant and 40% losses in seed yield have been reported (DiFonzo & Hines 2002). Even prior to the outbreak of 2003, the Soybean Strategic Pest Management Plan identified soybean aphid as one of the key...

A business performance index model that measures wealth change in Australian farm businesses AgEcon
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...

A case study of changes in economic performance of an irrigated dairy farm in northern Victoria AgEcon
Ho, Christie K.M.; Malcolm, Bill; Armstrong, Dan P.; Doyle, Peter T..
Average total factor productivity measures for the dairy industry provide an insight into how the industry is performing as a whole, but reveal little about what may be happening on individual farms. A case study of an irrigated dairy farm in northern 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...

A CASE STUDY OF TIMELINESS IN THE SELECTION OF RISK-EFFICIENT MACHINERY COMPLEMENTS AgEcon
Wetzstein, Michael E.; Musser, Wesley N.; McClendon, Ronald W.; Edwards, David M..
The importance of timeliness is investigated in the selection of machinery complements for double-crop wheat and soybean production in the southeastern coastal plain. An intertemporal stochastic simulation model was developed to generate probability distributions that were evaluated with stochastic dominance analysis. This research investigated the importance of intertemporal production linkages and adequate soil moisture on machinery selection. Failure to include these dimensions can result in erroneous machinery choices.

A COMERCIALIZAÇÃO DOS PRODUTOS ORGÂNICOS NA FEIRA AGROECOLÓGICA DE MACEIÓ/AL: UMA AVALIAÇÃO SOB A LÓGICA DA TEORIA DOS CUSTOS DE TRANSAÇÃO AgEcon
Lages, Andre Maia Gomes; Barbosa, Luciano Celso Brandao Guerreiro.
A Teoria dos Custos de Transação disciplina que em um determinado mercado deverá haver um fluxo de informação, de maneira a propiciar um ambiente favorável à diminuição da incerteza (e assimetria de informação) que evitariam à ocorrência de atitudes oportunistas, e consequentemente a redução dos custos de transação. Na agricultura orgânica a certificação formalmente estabelecida é o único instrumento que garante que o produto possa ser classificado realmente como orgânico. Este ensaio parte do pressuposto de que um sólido ambiente institucional pode garantir uma reputação ao produtor e as empresas varejistas dando ao consumidor a crença nas suas palavras mesmo sem a presença de uma certificação orgânica formal e reduzindo os custos de transação. E...

A comparative analysis of the technical efficiency of rain-fed and smallholder irrigation in Ethiopia AgEcon
Makombe, Godswill; Namara, Regassa E.; Hagos, Fitsum; Awulachew, Seleshi Bekele; Ayana, Mekonnen; Bossio, Deborah A..
Agriculture is the most significant contributor to Ethiopia’s economy. Most of the agricultural production is under rainfed conditions and thus extremely sensitive to rainfall variability. Irrigation development, including smallholder irrigation, is used by the Ethiopian Government to attempt to mitigate the effects of rainfall variability. In this study, we look at smallholder irrigation - modern and traditional irrigation systems. A detailed description of the cropping patterns is given. The stochastic frontier production function approach is used to estimate technical inefficiency, and constraints to production are analyzed. Since the traditional system is found to be efficient but on a lower production frontier, the study shows that significant gains...

A Comparative Study of FAO and USDA Data on Production, Area, and Trade of Major Food Staples AgEcon
Paulino, Leonardo A.; Tseng, Shen Sheng.
The setting of priorities for policy research at the International Food Policy Research Institute depends largely on an understanding of basic national and global trends in food production, consumption, and trade. Although IFPRI draws heavily on the analyses by FAO and other agencies for much of this information, it is also intensely examines the basic data, not only to carefully adjust its own program but to judge independently the key variable in these trends. Initially IFPRI worked largely from USDA data, but recent efforts have depended primarily on FAO statistics. This experience with the published data of both agencies has led Leonardo Paulino and Shen Sheng Tseng to undertake this analyses available to the research community at large, we hope to...

A comparison of fitness between horses with different exercise history AgEcon
Barker, Anna B.E.; Warren-Smith, A.K..
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 showed that there was no significant difference in post-exercise plasma lactate concentration between the groups. The horses...
