A COMPETITIVENESS STUDY OF FOUR RICE PRODUCTION SYSTEMS IN TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO AgEcon
Seecharan, Denny; Jacque, Andrew Eliel.
Rice imports into Trinidad and Tobago in 2005 represented approximately 95% of domestic demand. Local production has been declining since reaching a peak of 21,000 tonnes in 1992. Present production is 3,500 tonnes. Rice is produced under a variety of production systems and on farms of varying sizes, productivity and quality of output. This paper examines the competitiveness of four production systems used in Trinidad and Tobago, viz.: the transplanting system (ST), the broadcast seeded system (SB)(both being small farms and highly labour intensive), the partially mechanized system of medium sized farms (MM) and a fully mechanized large farm utilizing aerial technology in the production system (CRP). The methodology involved the collection of data on...

ALTERNATIVES TO SUGAR CANE IN ST. KITTS: COMPETITIVENESS STUDIES OF 4 CROPS IN ST. KITTS/NEVIS AgEcon
Edwards, Allistair; Jacque, Andrew Eliel.
The sugar industry in the island of St. Kitts came to a close in 2005 and so too did a long period of monoculture and possibly a culture and lifestyle of a people that affectionately refer to their country as Sugar City. Sugar was cultivated on approximately 4,500 hectares and there is now a dire need for replacement commodities that fit within the social, economic and environmental landscape of the country. Sugar cane cultivation and sugar production provided good-paying jobs and was the main source of income for many households. The crop provided a high degree of soil conservation and was a boon to the tourism industry. In addition, sugar was a substantial source of foreign exchange and provided some diversification to a tourism dependent economy....

COMPETITIVENESS OF COCOA PRODUCTION SYSTEMS IN TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO AgEcon
Neptune, Lueandra; Jacque, Andrew Eliel.
Trinidad and Tobago produces a fine flavour cocoa that attracts a premium price on the international market. The country has a long and distinguished record in agronomy and production of cocoa and is home to the Cocoa Research Unit, which attracts international notice and funding. However, cocoa production has been on a steady decline over the past few decades. The objective of this study is to assess the competitiveness and comparative advantage of cocoa production in Trinidad and Tobago and to understand the reasons for decline in output within the context of competitiveness. The analyses were conducted over three cocoa production systems – small farm traditional, large farm traditional, and large farm intensive cultivation. The methodology involved...

EU Preferential Partners in Search of New Policy Strategies for Agriculture: The Case of Citrus Sector in Trinidad and Tobago AgEcon
Jacque, Andrew Eliel; Dell'Aquila, Crescenzo; Perito, Maria Angela.
The paper assesses the competitive position of T&T's citrus industry and explains the declining productivity. It covers supply chain and agricultural trade policy issues and involves assembling two Policy Analysis Matrices, either with full cost of production or excluding establishment costs. Domestic and trade policy support shows significant for the sector. Production is internationally competitive, or possesses comparative advantage, only if costs of establishment are excluded. These results suggest that free trade agreements under the FTAA and the ACP-EU would work against the planting of new orchards and reinforce the decline of the sector.

FORECASTING AGRICULTURAL COMMODITY PRICES WITH LIMITED DATA SETS AgEcon
Jacque, Andrew Eliel.
Many developing countries wish to, but do not publish forecasts of commodity prices. One difficulty often cited is the length (shortness) of the data series. This study tried to determine whether this was a valid reason. Price data for two commodities in a specific country, where the problem is acknowledged were utilized in a case study approach. Existing models were evaluated for applicability to the data series. The identified models were estimated with estimation data and then while keeping the model parameters constant, prices were forecasted in the out-of-sample period. The error associated with the forecast of each model was calculated and the relationship between quantity of data and model accuracy evaluated. The error values of all the models...
