A closer look at the role of the fruit and vegetable planting restriction provision on land use in the United States AgEcon
Lei, Lei; Rickard, Bradley J.; Balagtas, Joseph Valdes; Krissoff, Barry.
Current U.S. farm programs make payments to farmers based in part on historical base acres planted in particular program crops such as corn, soybeans, cotton, wheat and soybeans. Eligibility for payments includes regulations on the crops allowed to be grown on base acres, and there are restrictions on planting horticultural crops on such base acres. The fruits and planting restriction on base acres has potentially influenced the number of acres planted to fruits and vegetables over the past two decades. This research carefully examines the effects of planting restrictions applied to vegetables and program crops, using county-level data in the United States in 1982, 1987, 1992 and 1997. The paper employs the difference-indifference (DiD) approach to...

An Economic Examination of Alternative Organic Cropping Systems in New York State AgEcon
Chan, Stephanie; Caldwell, Brian; Rickard, Bradley J..
This paper provides an economic analysis that compares the profitability and land management capability of four different organic cropping systems used to produce winter squash (Cucurbita pepo cv. ‘Delicata’) and cabbage (Brassica oleracea var. capitata cv.’ Farao’). The organic cropping systems are part of a long term experiment designed for vegetable production in the Northeast, and designed to maintain ecological integrity and contribute to environmental stewardship. Our research addresses the causal chain from soil processes to economic outcomes including soil quality, efficiency in cycling of nutrients, off-farm impacts, pressures from weeds, insects and diseases, crop yield and quality, and marketing opportunities. Interactive crop budgets were...

Domestic Support Reform? A Closer Look at EU Policies Applied to Processed Fruits and Vegetables AgEcon
Rickard, Bradley J.; Sumner, Daniel A..
Recent trade negotiations have attracted much attention to the consequences of domestic support applied to agricultural markets. In various markets, researchers have examined the economic effects of regimes and scenarios with less, or different forms of, domestic support including decoupled payments. Here we examine the domestic support regimes for processed fruits and vegetables in the European Union (EU) where major policy changes were applied in 2001 and again in 2008. The changes were billed as policy “reform” but no analysis has yet evaluated quantitatively the nature of what was reformed and what was not. A simulation model is used here to assess the price, production, and welfare effects of policies that have been applied to the EU processing tomato...

Drivers of Demand for Imported Horticultural Commodities: A Cross-Country Comparison AgEcon
Rickard, Bradley J.; St. Pierre, Christine M.; Becker, Gabriel M..
International trade of horticultural commodities is increasingly important in many regions of the world, yet relatively little research has studied import patterns of key horticultural crops. Using data between 1991 and 2005, we find that import demand for horticultural commodities in developed countries has been driven primarily by prices and the level of trade openness while income and diet considerations were more important in emerging countries. Furthermore, our results show that the determinants of import demand differed across the selected crops, and therefore information can be lost if data for horticultural commodities are aggregated.

EFFECTS OF PROPOSED TRADE BARRIERS FOR MILK PROTEIN CONCENTRATE AND CASEIN IMPORTS ON THE U.S. DAIRY INDUSTRY AgEcon
Balagtas, Joseph Valdes; Rickard, Bradley J.; Sumner, Daniel A..
Tight import barriers cover many milk products, but import quotas or prohibitive tariffs have not covered imports of a variety of high-protein specialty products. These products without tariff rate quotas include various casein and milk protein concentrate products. In recent years, imports of milk protein products into the United States have received increasing attention from U.S. dairy interests. A simulation model is used to study the effects of imports of milk protein products on U.S. prices and production of milk protein, on government purchases of dairy products, and on the production, prices and incomes of U.S. milk producers.

Examining the Costs of Producing Processing Snap Beans and Green Peas in New York State AgEcon
Ho, Shuay-Tsyr; Rickard, Bradley J.; Kikkert, Julie; Klotzbach, Kathryn; Reiners, Stephen; Smith, Marc.
It has been a long time since we have seen a cost of production study for horticultural crops, notably processing vegetable crops, in New York State; however, research in this arena is completed in many other states and continues to offer useful information to industry stakeholders. This type of information is especially important in the processing vegetable sector in New York State as it has seen substantial acreage decreases in recent years. Here we develop a survey to collect data from processing vegetable growers in New York State and use it to calculate costs and net returns of producing snap beans and green peas. Our results indicate that the average cost of producing snap beans in New York State is $568 per acre and is $563 per acre for green peas;...

Import Demand for Horticultural Commodities in Developed and Emerging Countries AgEcon
Rickard, Bradley J.; St. Pierre, Christine M.; Becker, Gabriel M..
International trade of horticultural commodities is increasingly important in many regions of the world, yet import patterns of key horticultural crops are understudied in the agricultural economics literature. Using data between 1991 and 2005, we estimate the drivers of per capita import demand for six of the most highly traded horticultural commodities. The own price elasticity estimates were negative in all import demand models and, in most cases, the effects were statistically stronger for importers in emerging countries. Import demand for horticultural commodities in developed countries has been driven primarily by prices and the level of trade openness while income and diet considerations were more important in emerging countries. Furthermore, our...

Product Differentiation and Market Segmentation in Applesauce: Using a Choice Experiment to Assess the Value of Organic, Local, and Nutrition Attributes AgEcon
James, Jennifer S.; Rickard, Bradley J.; Rossman, William J..
Recently, there has been much interest among horticultural producers concerning the marketing of organic and locally produced food. A consumer survey was administered that asked respondents to choose an applesauce product from a list of products differentiated by price, and by labels that described fat content, nutrition content, and whether the product was grown organically and/or locally. Our analysis indicates that consumers were willing to pay more for locally grown applesauce compared to applesauce that was labeled USDA Organic, Low Fat, or No Sugar Added. Furthermore, we find evidence that increased knowledge of agriculture decreases the willingness to pay for organic and locally grown applesauce.

Product Differentiation and Market Segmentation in Applesauce: Using a Choice Experiment to Assess the Value of Organic, Local and Nutrition Attributes AgEcon
James, Jennifer S.; Rickard, Bradley J.; Rossman, William J..
Recently there is much interest among horticultural producers concerning the marketing of organically- and locally- produced food. Here we developed a consumer survey that asked respondents to choose an applesauce product from a list of products differentiated by price and four attributes. The products were differentiated by labels that described fat content, nutrition content, and whether the product was grown organically and/or locally. The survey was distributed to 3,000 residents in rural Pennsylvania and over 1,500 responses were collected yielding a response rate of 56%. Survey results were used to assess consumers’ willingness to pay for the product attributes in applesauce, and we found that consumers were willing to pay more for locally-grown...

The Economics of Health Behavior and Vitamin Consumption AgEcon
Schroeter, Christiane; Anders, Sven M.; Carlson, Andrea; Rickard, Bradley J..
Conventionally, fruits and vegetables have been the major source of micronutrients. However, with the rising availability of nutritional supplements, U.S. consumers no longer need to rely on food alone for their nutritional needs. Time-pressured consumers with limited cooking skills and nutrition knowledge may find it easier to take vitamin supplements. The objective of this paper is to determine the impact of lifestyle, diet behavior including vitamin supplement consumption, and food culture on diet quality outcomes as measured by the Healthy Eating Index-2005 (HEI) and total energy intake. We use the 2003-04 U.S. National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) to examine the relationship between HEI and caloric intake. Further, our specific...

Traceability Adoption by Specialty Crop Producers in California AgEcon
Stuller, Zachary J.; Rickard, Bradley J..
Surveys were sent to specialty crop producers in California, predominantly grower-packer-shippers, during the first half of 2006 to better understand the motives for traceability adoption. The questions in our survey allowed respondents to consider the benefits of tracing. A representative tracing system for melons was developed and costs for the system were collected from industry sources. Values were assigned to the benefits of traceability based on the cost of the representative system, responses collected in our survey, and using Borda’s rule. Results suggest that litigation concerns and firm reputation are the key drivers for maintaining traceability.
