Árvores e palmeiras indicadas para a recuperação de áreas degradadas no Programa de Regularização Ambiental (PRA) na Bacia do Rio Acre. Infoteca-e
GUARINO, E. de S. G.; OLIVEIRA, L. C. de; SILVA, E. R. da; FARIAS, M. S.; PELLICCIOTTI, A. S.; THOMPSON, R. M..
A lei de proteção à vegetação nativa, n° 12.651/2012 (antigo Código Florestal Brasileiro), traz algumas inovações importantes para a proteção e conservação da biodiversidade da flora brasileira. Uma delas é a criação do cadastro ambiental rural (CAR), o qual tem como um dos objetivos apoiar o planejamento do imóvel rural, contribuindo para recuperar áreas degradadas, formar corredores ecológicos e conservar os demais recursos naturais (p. ex.: água e solo). Como resultado do CAR, todos os produtores rurais com passivos ambientais documentados após o dia 22 de julho de 2008 (data da regulamentação da lei de crimes ambientais) são obrigados a regularizar a situação de suas propriedades por meio do Programa de Regularização Ambiental (PRA). O Acre foi um dos...

Differentiation in Farm Labor Complement Profiles of Organic and Conventional Farms in the Southeast: Coping with a Changing Farm Labor Market AgEcon
Escalante, Cesar L.; Santos, Florence Ivy M..
The farm labor market is expected to experience supply deficiencies as a result of the displacement of foreign unskilled workers due to the impending implementation of stricter immigration policies in the United States. This study scrutinizes the farm labor hiring predicament of farm operators using data from the household survey we administered on organic and conventional farms in the Southeast U.S. Specifically, we used the Seemingly Unrelated Regression (SUR) approach to model and examine the level of difficulty experienced by farmers in hiring non-family farm workers and its influence on farm labor management decisions. We also explore the probable motivation of the extent of family members’ involvement in farm work and analyze the influence of the...

Effects of Seed and Farm Characteristics on Cottonseed Choice: A Choice-Based Conjoint Experiment in the Mississippi Delta AgEcon
Banerjee, Swagata (Ban); Hudson, Darren; Martin, Steven W..
Producers’ preferences for cottonseed with respect to price, seed type, yield, and fiber quality are examined by a willingness-to-pay approach via mail surveys. Results indicate a positive willingness to pay (WTP) for technology relative to conventional cottonseed, and WTP increases with the level of technology. Yield and quality also show a positive WTP. Larger farms have a higher WTP for technology, and farms with more farm labor have a lower WTP for technology. These results suggest economies of size in technology adoption (biotechnology is not size-neutral) and that labor and biotechnology are direct substitutes.

FARM HOUSEHOLD LABOR ALLOCATION AND HIRED LABOR DEMANDS IN THE MIDWEST U.S.: THE IMPACT OF GOVERNMENT PAYMENTS AgEcon
Roucan-Kane, Maud; Keeney, Roman.
In addition to farm work, most farm households in developed countries have at least one person working off-farm. The purpose of this paper is to examine if, and how, government payments, personal characteristics and household characteristics affect labor allocation of farm operators and their spouses, and the decisions to hire labor. We estimate an 8-regime multinomial logit model and a three equation multivariate probit model to quantify these impacts. Results indicate that age of household members is consistent with the life-cycle hypothesis on increasing then decreasing labor market par, and is positively associated with demand for hired labor. Hired farm labor and off farm activities increase with the operator education levels. As household size...

FARM LABOR TRENDS AND MANAGEMENT IN WASHINGTON STATE AgEcon
Thilmany, Dawn D..
The Washington State farm labor market is a pivotal point in the western migrant stream. Farm employers argue that the seasonal labor market has tightened as a result of changes in immigration policy and economic conditions, even as they increase acreage of labor-intensive crops and the demand for labor. Yet, one could argue that a sufficient labor supply is available if workers are offered competitive wages and sufficient hours. To address some of these questions and issues, this study explores whether employer-specific factors (commodity, region, size, and management practices) influence worker turnover and the ability of employers to attract return workers.

Profile of Hired Farmworkers, A 2008 Update AgEcon
Kandel, William.
Hired farmworkers make up a third of the total agricultural labor force and are critical to U.S. agricultural production, particularly in labor-intensive sectors such as fruits and vegetables. The hired farmworker labor market is unique because it includes a large population of relatively disadvantaged and often unauthorized workers, a portion of whom migrate to, and within, the United States. Recent economic and demographic trends, such as changing agricultural production methods that permit year-round employment, expanding immigrant populations in nonmetropolitan counties, and growing concerns over U.S. immigration policies, have elicited increased interest in hired farmworkers. This 2008 profile serves as an update to the 2000 Economic Research Service...

The Effect of Farm Labor Organization on IPM Adoption: Empirical Evidence from Thailand AgEcon
Beckmann, Volker; Irawan, Evi; Wesseler, Justus.
This paper examines the empirical evidence of a theoretical economic model of the effect of labor organization on IPM adoption developed by Beckmann and Wes seler (2003). We use cross section data collected from the participatory farming system survey of 150 durian growers in Chanthaburi, Thailand, on March – April 2005. In contrast to many studies of IPM adoption, this work uses the form of farm labor organiza tion as endogenous factor for identifying the rate of IPM adoption of durian growers. Instrumental variables method was employed to relate econometrically a set of suspected variables as instruments of labor organization to the rate of IPM adoption of duri an growers. Results show that, among others, farms employing hired labor have a lower adoption...
