2006 PRECISION AGRICULTURAL SERVICES DEALERSHIP SURVEY RESULTS AgEcon
Whipker, Linda D.; Akridge, Jay T..
Precision technologies are now well-integrated into the agricultural industry - both at the farm level and at the crop input dealer level. No longer are crop input dealers only using the technologies to bring new services to their customers, they are also utilizing the technology in their own businesses to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their business operations. In early 2006, Crop Life magazine and Purdue University's Center for Food and Agricultural Business conducted a survey for the 11th consecutive year to assess the adoption of precision agriculture practices in the U.S. from the perspective of the retail crop input dealer. The questionnaire was sent to 2500 retail crop input dealerships across the U.S. A total of 368 questionnaires...

2009 PRECISION AGRICULTURAL SERVICES DEALERSHIP SURVEY RESULTS AgEcon
Whipker, Linda D.; Akridge, Jay T..
In the spring of 2009, Crop Life magazine and Purdue University’s Center for Food and Agricultural Business conducted a survey of crop input dealers for the 14th consecutive year. In February, a questionnaire was mailed to 2500 Crop Life retail crop input dealership readers across the US. (See Appendix I to this report for a copy of the questionnaire.) A total of 258 questionnaires were returned, with 241 being usable. This provided an effective response rate of 9.6 percent, the lowest response rate in the 14 year history of the project. (In prior years, response rates have ranged from a high of 38 percent in 1996 to a low of 11 percent in 2001 and 2008.) Consistent with previous surveys, dealerships were asked questions about the types of precision...

ADOPTION OF E-COMMERCE STRATEGIES FOR AGRIBUSINESS FIRMS AgEcon
Henderson, Jason R.; Dooley, Frank J.; Akridge, Jay T..
This paper analyzes the factors guiding Internet and e-commerce implementation by agribusiness firms. The relationship between Internet/e-commerce strategies and manager perceptions on the barriers and factors to e-commerce adoption are analyzed in a supply-chain management framework. Using factor analysis and an ordered Probit model, results indicate that the implementation of Internet/e-commerce strategies is more likely to be adopted in larger firms with a global scope. Also, manager perceptions regarding supply-chain functions influencing transaction costs are more strongly associated with Internet/e-commerce adoption than other functions influencing production costs.

Adoption of Internet Strategies by Agribusiness Firms AgEcon
Henderson, Jason R.; Dooley, Frank J.; Akridge, Jay T.; Carerre, Antonio.
This paper explores the factors guiding Internet adoption by agribusiness firms. The relationship between Internet strategies and manager perceptions on the barriers to and catalysts for Internet adoption are analyzed in a supply-chain management framework. Using factor analysis and an ordered Probit model, results indicate that Internet strategies are more likely to be adopted in larger firms with a global scope. Also, manager perceptions regarding the impact of Internet adoption on transaction costs are just as likely to influence adoption as the perceived impacts on more traditional production costs.

AGRIBUSINESS AND EXTENSION: CHARACTERISTICS OF SUCCESSFUL PROGRAMS TO SERVE A RAPIDLY CHANGING CLIENTELE AgEcon
Akridge, Jay T..
The market for agribusiness extension activities and programming is diverse, intensely competitive, and national or international in scope. It is a market that agricultural economists cannot serve alone. Despite these complexities, a strong agribusiness extension effort is critical to the success of agribusiness research and teaching programs. Agribusiness extension opportunities include extending traditional agricultural economics research, small business management programs, economic/technical education programs, and management education. Keys for conducting successful agribusiness extension programs include understanding client needs, locating and employing the best instructional talent available, and flawless execution of the activity. Stimulating...

An Evaluation of Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Practices among Agribusiness Firms AgEcon
Torres, Antonio, Jr.; Akridge, Jay T.; Gray, Allan W.; Boehlje, Michael; Widdows, Richard.
Customer Relationship Management (CRM) has received much attention in the business press as a management process to enhance firm performance. This research highlights differences between groups of respondents who believe their firm's CRM program is performing at a high level, as compared to those not satisfied with the performance of their CRM initiative. Cluster analysis was used to develop a taxonomy of respondents based on their perceived CRM performance. The resulting clusters are then profiled on both demographic variables as well as a core set of activities/behaviors to better understand key differences in the CRM programs of agribusinesses.

Assessing Opportunities, Challenges, and the Future Role of the U.S. Crop Input Dealer AgEcon
Whipker, Linda D.; Akridge, Jay T.; Joshua, James D..
Distribution channels for crop production chemicals, fertilizers and seed are involved in a significant transition. Though the two endpoints of the channel remain the manufacturer and grower, many more options are evolving for transferring products, services, and information through the channel. Traditionally, the retail dealer was the pivot point in moving products, services, and information through the channel but as changes have occurred in the industry, and with technology, that role is evolving. Some of the factors driving change in the distribution channel for crop inputs include: • Competition, as new intermediaries enter the marketplace (consultants, brokers, wholesalers, large growers); • Consolidation, at all levels of the distribution...

CAPTURING VALUE IN THE SUPPLY CHAIN: THE CASE OF HIGH OLEIC ACID SOYBEANS AgEcon
Darroch, Mark A.G.; Akridge, Jay T.; Boehlje, Michael.
The oil produced from high oleic acid soybeans (HOS) offers benefits to both consumers and food manufacturers. It is lower in saturated fat and more heat-stable than commodity-grade soybean oil. Optimum Quality Grains L.L.C. is working with seed distributors, elevators, and crushers across the Midwestern U.S. to develop a new supply chain which keeps the HOS and the resulting oil separate (identity preserved (IP)) from commodity-grade soybean oil. This case illustrates the challenges and key issues facing three players - an agricultural inputs dealer, a grain elevator, and a soybean crusher - that must decide whether to join the new supply chain as the HOS research commercialization. The case can be used to create a discussion about how each player can...

COMPUTER AND INTERNET ADOPTION ON LARGE U.S. FARMS AgEcon
Gloy, Brent A.; Akridge, Jay T..
The adoption of the personal computer and the Internet is studied within a sample of large U.S. farms. Factors such as age and education influence the adoption of both technologies. Likewise, strong relationships exist between the adoption of each technology and the sophistication of farm management and the complexity of the farm business. After controlling for computer adoption, the results suggest there remain several factors limiting Internet adoption. It appears that producers are unsure as to how the Internet can best be used to create value in their farm businesses.

Cooperative and Investor-Oriented Firm Efficiency: A Multiproduct Analysis AgEcon
Akridge, Jay T.; Hertel, Thomas W..
A multiproduct variable cost function was used to compare the efficiency of Midwestern cooperative and investor-oriented grain and farm supply firms. Results suggest that cooperatives are no less efficient in a variable cost sense than their investor-oriented counterparts. Concerning fixed input-variable cost elasticities, investor-oriented firms may be more effective in their use of plant and equipment, but cooperatives make more efficient use of other fixed inputs.

ECONOMIC EVALUATION OF ALTERNATIVE SUPPLY CHAINS FOR SOYBEAN PEROXIDASE AgEcon
Lentz, T. Daniel; Akridge, Jay T..
Soybean peroxidase is an enzyme derived from soybean hulls. Peroxidase has much commercial potential as an ingredient in the manufacturer of polymers and specialty chemicals, as a dough conditioner, and as a component in medical test kits. Commodity soybean cultivars contain various amounts of active peroxidase enzyme. This study evaluates alternative supply chain arrangements for moving soybean hulls containing peroxidase from producer to processor. Results suggest at current peroxidase levels in soybeans, supply chain arrangements involving soybean segregation offer cost advantages over the standard commodity supply chain. In addition, a supply chain involving high peroxidase cultivars may offer enough cost savings over the commodity supply chain to...

FACTORS INFLUENCING ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE IN THE FOOD MANUFACTURING, CHEMICAL, AGRICULTURAL WHOLESALING AND BIOTECHNOLOGY INDUSTRIES AgEcon
Roucan-Kane, Maud; Pena, Inaki; Boehlje, Michael; Akridge, Jay T..
The objective of this study is to identify factors determining a business investment strategy (i.e., the choice of investment commitment and form of organizational structure) in the food manufacturing, chemical, agricultural wholesaling and biotechnology industries. Propositions regarding strategic alliance theories are tested on over 400 inter-firm collaborative agreements using secondary data from major US and European companies for the 1994-97 period. Results suggest that transactions with lower technological and resource uncertainty levels are more likely to result in investments with a higher commitment level (i.e., acquisitions or majority equity-based controlling investments). The investment commitment level embedded in a single business transaction...
