Combating the Crisis: Managing Watersheds for Economic Profit and Environmental Quality Improvement AgEcon
Rodriguez, German; Popp, Jennie S. Hughes.
Phosphorus runoff has generated water quality degradation, spawning legislative and regularity actions in several watersheds in Northwest Arkansas. Best management practices (BMPs) can be viable alternatives in dealing with nutrient excess. The profitability of several BMPs deemed effective in addressing such concerns is examined in one Northwest Arkansas watershed.

Comparison of Factors Influencing Salaries of Agricultural Economics Professionals in Academic and Federal Employment AgEcon
Popp, Jennie S. Hughes; Newton, Doris J.; Pittman, Dianne; Danforth, Diana M.; Abdula, Arby.
Results of two ordered probit models find differences in the major factors that influence salaries of agricultural economists employed in academia and in federal government. However some similarities were found; both sets of salaries were influenced by factors that measure job performance and neither set of salaries were significantly influenced by gender or ethnicity.

Cost and benefits of using best management practices to control non-point sources of pollution under environmental and economic uncertainty AgEcon
Rodriguez, Hector German; Popp, Jennie S. Hughes; Gbur, Edward E.; Chaubey, Indrajeet.
The economy of northwest Arkansas, including the Lincoln Lake watershed (a sub-watershed of the Illinois River), relies greatly upon livestock and poultry production. The supply of production by-products is increasingly under scrutiny as one of the potential sources of water pollution in the region. In light of the recent economic crisis, methodologies that help producers to evaluate the environmental and economic impacts of several practices before implementing them may be a cost-effective means of increasing BMP adoption. This study uses stochastic dominance techniques to evaluate, environmentally and economically, ten best management practices (BMPs) combinations to lessen water pollution in the Lincoln Lake watershed. All BMP combinations analyzed were...

Factors Influencing Job Choice among Agricultural Economics Professionals AgEcon
McGraw, Katherine; Popp, Jennie S. Hughes; Dixon, Bruce L.; Newton, Doris J..
This article identifies factors that influence agricultural economics professionals’ job choice between academic and government employment. Respondents agreed that job responsibilities were the most important factor in choosing their current position. They also agreed that having a positive work environment, good salary, family time, adequate resources, and professional and social interaction were important job attributes. Proportionally more women than men regarded partner opportunities, nondiscrimination, time for child care, and supportive colleagues as very important attributes influencing their decisions. A binomial probit of respondents’ current job sector indicates significant job choice determinants include sector preference (academic or...

Factors Influencing Salaries of Agricultural Economics Professionals at Land Grant Institutions AgEcon
Popp, Jennie S. Hughes; Abdula, Arby; Newton, Doris J.; Pittman, Dianne; Danforth, Diana M..
Research in the mid 1900s suggested that salary gaps existed between men and women in academia. Though the research helped bring attention to salary gaps, less focus was on causes of salary differences. More recent research suggested differences in salaries were based on performance. A survey was sent to agricultural economics professionals at land grant intuitions to identify the factors that influence their salaries. Results of the ordered probit model suggest that seven variables can be used to explain salaries: having attained tenure, working at an 1862 institution, the amount of grant dollars, the number of journal articles, highest academic rank and the percentage of appointment that is in administration (positive influences) and importance of...

Factors Influencing Salaries of Agricultural Economics Professionals in Federal Employment - Part I AgEcon
Newton, Doris J.; Popp, Jennie S. Hughes; Abdula, Arby; Pittman, Dianne; Danforth, Diana M..
Since the early 1900s much research has been conducted on salary gaps between men and women in different professions. While some of that work has focused on agricultural economics professionals, little research could be found specifically relating to agricultural economic professionals in federal employment. A survey was sent to known agricultural economics professionals within USDA. The data from this survey are being used for two purposes. The first is to determine whether differences exist between men and women (and between employees in different agencies) in factors that influence job choice and potential problems in the workplace. The second is to identify factors that influence salaries of men and women agricultural economics professionals in...

Increasing Profitability of Small Scale Orchard Producers through Optimizing Replacement Rate: The Case Study of Ghana AgEcon
Mahrizal; Nalley, Lawton Lanier; Dixon, Bruce L.; Popp, Jennie S. Hughes.
This study sets out to empirically estimate the optimum annual replacement rate and age of cocoa trees in order to maximize the net present value of four common cocoa production systems. The study examines the costs and returns of four common cocoa production systems in Ghana associated with changes in cocoa prices, fertilizer prices, inflation rates, and labor prices. While this study focuses on cocoa, the methodology is applicable to any perennial crop. This study uses empirical yield curves and cost of production data from Ghana to determine when and what percentage of a cocoa orchard should be replaced annually to maximize net present value of revenues over time. Successive versions of the model are solved to determine how input and output price...

PROFITABILITY OF VARIABLE RATE PHOSPHORUS IN A TWO CROP ROTATION AgEcon
Popp, Jennie S. Hughes; Griffin, Terry W..
In the Midwest, the adoption of precision farming technologies began in the early 1990s. Research has produced profiles of early adopters, evaluated adoption trends and has identified factors that influence the adoption and profitability of precision farming. Importantly, this information is available to producers, who are interested in precision farming issues. In addition, the Midwest regional agricultural industry, strong promoters of precision farming technologies, has gained the confidence of farmers who now rely on them heavily for information on farming technologies. Precision farming in Arkansas, however, is still in its infancy. Adoption levels lag far behind those in the Midwest. Two reasons for this lag have been offered. First, some...

Running to Stand Still: Challenges Economists Face with Imperfect Data AgEcon
Kemper, Nathan; Popp, Jennie S. Hughes; Miller, Wayne P.; Goodwin, Harold L., Jr..
Some suggest that land application of phosphorus rich poultry litter has negatively affected area waters' recreational value. However, key data are unavailable to conduct thorough economic analysis to aid in policy development. This paper examines the challenges associated with using limited economic analyses to construct policy to address this situation.

SUSTAINABLE RESOURCE MANAGEMENT: A METHODOLOGY FOR ANALYSIS AgEcon
Popp, Jennie S. Hughes; Hoag, Dana L..
Resource endowments, modeled as quality indices, are placed into a dynamic production model to determine resource use adjustments to meet sustainability and production input usage changes when resource quality fluctuates. Impacts of sustainability are identified and the time path of resource quality is evaluated using substitution, reversibility and uncertainty criteria.
