A business performance index model that measures wealth change in Australian farm businesses AgEcon
Sefton, Clive A.; Cox, Rodney J..
This paper presents an evaluation of a farm-business assessment model that uses financial performance measures and tracks ‘wealth change’ to evaluate performance trends over time, and ranks the relative business performance of commercial participants. Its core component involves the use of comparative analysis, which is structured as an introductory rapid-assessment model, together with a ranking system that has been designed to differentiate the relative performance levels of farm businesses. The system has been labelled as the Business Performance Index (BPI) model to reflect its performance-ranking role that explores the relationships, if any, between farmer attitudes and business performance. The BPI model is discussed within the context of the debate...

A gender performance indicator for irrigation: Concepts, tools and applications AgEcon
van Koppen, Barbara.
Although gender issues are today a priority on the agendas of irrigation policy makers, interventionists, farm leaders and researchers, there is still a considerable gap between positive intentions and concrete action. An important but hitherto ignored reason for this is the lack of adequate generic concepts and tools that are policy-relevant and can accommodate the vast variation in irrigation contexts worldwide. The Gender Performance Indicator for Irrigation (GPII) aims to fill this gap. In any particular scheme, this tool diagnoses the gendered organization of farming and gender-based inclusion or exclusion in irrigation institutions. It informs irrigation agencies what they themselves can do for effective change-if necessary. The tool also identifies...

Balanced Scorecard in Serbia: management innovation or rhetoric game AgEcon
Bogicevic, Jasmina; Domanovic, Violeta.
In performance measurement and management literature, the Balanced Scorecard is the most prominent model. It can be considered as effectiveness measurement, efficiency measurement or performance measurement model. The Balanced Scorecard is one of the newest management innovations and it is in focus of contemporary researchers’ attention in management innovation area. The question is if it is something real new in its essence, or just rhetoric came. This paper considers this issue in Serbia, especially.

DEA based yardstick competition in natural resource management AgEcon
Bogetoft, Peter; Nielsen, Kurt.
In this paper, we discuss the pros and cons of using Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) to evaluate and enhance the efficiency of natural resource management. The need for a multidimensional production frontier approach is sketched, along with examples from other regulated multi-output industries, Also, reviews of the basic properties of DEA and DEA based yardstick competition are provided. Finally, we discuss the use of DEA based yardstick to evaluate bids in multi-dimensional procurement auctions.

Design, Construction and Performance Evaluation of a Twin Screw Extruder CIGR Journal
Sobowale, Sunday Samuel.
The aim of this study was thus to design, construct a multi-purpose twin screw extruder and evaluate its performance. All parts of the extruder were constructed using locally available materials and its suitable for both batch and continuous production. The extruder essentially consists of the hopper, barrel, variable speed and temperature control, electrical motor and replaceable dies to give different sizes and shapes in the final products. It could also handle feed materials of different rheology. Performance evaluation of the extruder was done using cocoyam flour, varying feed moisture content (FMC) and screw speed (SS). Both the FMC and SS were observed to significantly affect the all performance indicators (expansion ratio, residence time, throughput...

Development of a motorized yam slicer CIGR Journal
Samuel Enyi Obetta; University of Agriculture, Benue State, Nigeria.; J. C. Ehiem.
A motorized yam-slicing device was designed and developed to improve drying by increasing the surfaces area of yam tubers.  It consists of rotary blades, feeding chutes and electric motor.  The operating power was obtained from 1.5 hp electric motor (1,400 rpm) and, using pulley and belt with complete drive.  The device is manually fed with one tuber at a time.  Performance of the device was evaluated using the following parameters: slicing efficiency, throughput and percentage of non -uniform slices.  The slicing efficiency, throughput and non-uniform slices obtained was 52.3%, 315 kg/h and 47.65% respectively.  Making the chute adjustable to different tuber thickness would eliminate wobbling and further reduce the percentage of non-uniform slices.

Institutional design principles for accountability in large irrigation systems. AgEcon
Merrey, Douglas J..
Argues that single irrigation systems managed by autonomous system-specific organizations accountable to their customers, perform better and are more sustainable than those managed by agencies dependent on the government, or by agencies responsible for multiple systems. Selected cases are reviewed and the plausibility of this hypothesis established. General recommendations are made for policy makers designing irrigation reform programs.

Institutional factors affecting irrigation performance in Pakistan: research and policy priorities AgEcon
Bandaragoda, Don Jayatissa; Firdousi, G.R..
The strong irrigation tradition has sustained the broad based community interest in irrigation. The result is a very complex institutional milieu in which a set of formally established irrigation rules and organizations exists side by side with an intricate set of social institutions. The two sets act like a dual system often in conflict with each other. The authors, while analyzing the present institutional barriers, have highlighted the importance of irrigation rules and procedures in the institutional framework.
