Are Homeowners Willing to Pay for "Origin-Certified" Plants in Water-Conserving Residential Landscaping? AgEcon
Curtis, Kynda R.; Cowee, Margaret W..
This study investigates the value of local origin-labeling for a nonfood product by evaluating Nevada homeowner purchase propensity for “NevadaGrown” native plants for water-conserving residential landscaping. Homeowner survey results illustrate that homeowners may be willing to pay as much as a 14% premium for origin-certified native plants. WTP estimates are higher when uncertain responses are incorporated into the bidding structure. Preferences for local production and drought resistance in plants are the primary drivers of purchasing decisions in the absence of uncertain responses, while income levels and preferences for natural plant appearance additionally affect purchasing decisions when uncertainty is incorporated.

Consumer Acceptance of Genetically Modified Food Products in the Developing World AgEcon
Curtis, Kynda R.; Wahl, Thomas I.; McCluskey, Jill J..
World-wide consumer response toward food products made from genetically modified ingredients has been largely negative. However, the majority of the previous studies on consumer attitudes towards genetically modified food products were conducted in developed countries in Europe as well as Japan. The small number of studies conducted in developing countries obtained different results from the developed world. This paper considers the motivations for consumer attitudes towards genetically modified foods in developing countries. We conclude that the generally positive perception towards genetically modified foods in developing countries could be the result of a cost-benefit analysis consistent with expected utility theory. Developing countries have more...

Direct Marketing Local Food to Chefs: Chef Preferences and Perceived Obstacles AgEcon
Curtis, Kynda R.; Cowee, Margaret W..
Increasing consumer preferences for locally produced foods, exhibited by the nationwide expansion of farmers markets, is likely to affect food-service establishments. This study used a mail and telephone survey to evaluate chefs’ preferences and attitudes towards purchasing locally produced foods for their restaurants. Results show that chefs are most concerned with food quality, taste, and freshness. Chefs of small gourmet, independently owned restaurants are more likely to purchase local foods. Gourmet chefs are more concerned with food-production practices and thus see the value of purchasing local foods. Lack of information was found to be the largest hurdle to purchasing local products, clearly demonstrating the need for additional information and...

Economics of Alternative Crop Production in Arid Regions AgEcon
Curtis, Kynda R.; Bishop, Carol; Harris, Thomas R..
As water resources in arid regions decline, agricultural producers are encouraged to adopt water conserving strategies. The implementation of alternative low-water use crops is one option, but is it economically feasible? Data on current and alternative crops for this study include enterprise budgets, producer interviews, and field trials in Northwestern Nevada, USA. We use WinEPIC, a Windows-based version of the EPIC model, which synthesizes both agronomics and economics, to model yields and returns of alternative crop production under differing irrigation levels. Risk analysis or the distribution of net returns to alternative crop production is also examined. This study determined that there are alternative crops that could be feasibly substituted for...

Impacts of the Westernization of Food Preferences on Medical Costs in China AgEcon
Curtis, Kynda R.; McCluskey, Jill J..
The dietary changes in China to include more meat, dairy, and processed foods, are commonly attributed in literature to income increases, urbanization, and the availability of western food products. As seen in other Asian countries, these new food habits may increase obesity, diabetes, and other degenerative diseases among the Chinese people. These new health concerns will likely have economic consequences in terms of productivity losses and increased health care costs. This paper uses a Tobit model to analyze the influence of household demographics and food consumption on household medical costs in China. Results show that dietary choice has a definite impact on medical costs for the 800 households sampled. A nationwide dietary educational campaign in...

Modeling the Impact of New Information on Consumer Preferences for Specialty Meat Products AgEcon
Wang, Xi; Curtis, Kynda R.; Moeltner, Klaus.
As the demand for organic and natural food grows in the U.S., studies show that consumers would and do pay more for these foods than their traditional counterparts. However, the question remains as to whether consumers really understand the differences between organic and natural products versus common products. The USDA provides an official definition of organic, but there is no official definition or certification for natural products. The general lack of knowledge among consumers concerning organic and natural products can be misleading and hence, there is a need for a better understanding of how consumer pre-existing knowledge and new information regarding organic and natural products influences consumer purchasing behavior. In this study, we research...

OPTIMAL WATERFOWL HUNTING MANAGEMENT STRATEGIES FOR PRIVATE LANDOWNERS: A MINNESOTA CASE STUDY AgEcon
Flottemesch, Thomas; Curtis, Kynda R..
A bio-economic model based upon waterfowl population, habitat, and hunting data in the state of Minnesota is used to examine the optimal management strategy of a waterfowl hunting enterprise on privately owned land. Various state sponsored incentive programs are then analyzed for their effect on hunting and waterfowl equilibrium levels, as well as the economic viability of the hunting enterprise. A waterfowl habitat and maintenance cost reimbursement incentive program is found to be the most effective at inducing additional hunting opportunities in Minnesota, while providing economic incentives for private landowners to actively manage their land.

WESTERNIZATION IN CHINA: A CASE STUDY IN PROCESSED POTATOES AgEcon
Curtis, Kynda R.; McCluskey, Jill J.; Wahl, Thomas I..
Keywords: China, potatoes, westernization, food demand, convenience foods Abstract: The demand for convenience foods is growing around the world, especially in China. However, the contributing factors of this change in food preferences are still largely unknown. To measure this westernization trend, data from a survey of Chinese consumers in Beijing is evaluated using a multinomial ordered logit model to determine which consumer attributes influence the probability of consuming western foods such as French fries, mashed potatoes, and potato chips. Results show that higher income levels and positive opinions concerning western food taste have a significant influence on increased consumption of all three processed potato products. Additionally,...
