  • Price premiums, payment delays, and default risk: understanding developing
           country farmers’ decisions to market through a cooperative or a private
    • Authors: Tina L. Saitone; Richard J. Sexton, Benoît Malan
      Abstract: Smallholder farmers in developing countries face a competitive disadvantage in modern agricultural supply chains. Joint marketing through cooperatives is a potential tool to mitigate these disadvantages; yet cooperatives’ success in these settings is uneven at best. We develop an analytical model to study a farmer's choice of selling to a private trader who pays cash on delivery but may exercise market power or a cooperative that promises a price premium but delays payment and carries a concomitant risk of default. In the presence of impatient and risk-averse farmers, we show that these factors can severely limit smallholder patronage of a cooperative, despite a promised price premium. We then construct and parameterize a simulation model to fit a profile of heterogeneous farmers within a prototype developing-country village, and study the optimal decisions of farmers regarding marketing through a cooperative vs. a private trader. Results suggest that modest improvements in either timeliness of payment or probability of default can induce a substantial increase in a cooperative's market share and economic viability. Extending the simulation analysis to a dynamic setting shows how implementing reasonable policies to improve a cooperative's payment timeliness and default probability can markedly improve its growth trajectory.This article is protected by copyright.

  • Implications of the global growth slowdown for rural poverty
    • Authors: David Laborde Debucquet; Will Martin
      Abstract: Over the past 25 years, higher growth in developing countries has contributed to a dramatic fall in global poverty, although poverty rates in rural areas remain higher than in urban areas. Unfortunately, projected growth rates have fallen in recent years; this paper examines the impact of this slowdown on the poor, particularly the rural poor. It first uses a global model to assess the impacts of lower productivity on key price and income variables. It then uses microsimulation models for almost 300,000 households to assess the impacts on their real incomes. Although poverty rates overall are projected to fall substantially, the poorest countries see the greatest slowdown in poverty reduction, with over 5 percent of their population projected to remain below the poverty line. In addition, poverty rates will remain alarmingly high in many countries. Overall, 38 million fewer people will leave extreme poverty compared to earlier projections. Farm households are at particular risk in middle-income countries, with over 1.5 percent more of the farming population remaining trapped in poverty than previously estimated. By 2030, average extreme poverty in rural areas is now projected at about 7.5 percent, rather than previous estimates of 7.1 percent. Clearly, a strong focus on policies for poverty reduction will be vital for eliminating poverty by 2030.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved

  • Spatial dependency and technical efficiency: An application of a bayesian
           stochastic frontier model to irrigated and rainfed rice farmers in bohol,
    • Authors: Valerien O. Pede; Francisco J. Areal, Alphonse Singbo, Justin McKinley, Kei Kajisa
      Abstract: We investigated the role of spatial dependency in the technical efficiency estimates of rice farmers using panel data from the Central Visayan island of Bohol in the Philippines. Household-level data were collected from irrigated and rainfed agroecosystems. In each ecosystem, the geographical information on residential and farm-plot neighborhood structures was recorded to compare household-level spatial dependency among four types of neighborhoods. A Bayesian stochastic frontier approach that integrates spatial dependency was used to address the effects of neighborhood structures on farmers’ performance. Incorporating the spatial dimension into the neighborhood structures allowed for identification of the relationships between spatial dependency and technical efficiency through comparison with non-spatial models. The neighborhood structure at the residence and plot levels were defined with a spatial weight matrix where cut-off distances ranged from 100m to 1,000m. We found that spatial dependency exists at the residential and plot levels and is stronger for irrigated farms than rainfed farms. We also found that technical inefficiency levels decrease as spatial effects are more taken into account. Because the spatial effects increase with a shorter network distance, the decreasing technical inefficiency implies that the unobserved inefficiencies can be explained better by considering small networks of relatively close farmers over large networks of distant farmers.This article is protected by copyright.

  • The components of the bid-ask spread: evidence from the corn futures
    • Authors: Quanbiao Shang; Mindy Mallory, Philip Garcia
      Abstract: This paper examines whether USDA announcements and commodity index fund rolling activity have an impact on liquidity costs, measured by the Bid-Ask Spread. Using Huang and Stoll's (1997) model of liquidity costs, we estimate whether changes to liquidity costs are driven by its adverse selection, inventory, or order processing components. Commodity index fund roll activity reduces the asymmetric information cost component of liquidity cost due to an increased proportion of non-information based trading, but the inventory cost component increases as (mostly long only) commodity index funds sell their nearby positions and buy the first deferred contract – raising liquidity providers’ risk of building a position. The sum of these two effects is that liquidity costs remain low during index fund roll periods, averaging very near one ‘tick’ (0.25 cents). On USDA report release days, we find that informed traders raise the asymmetric information component of liquidity costs in the first hour after release, but the inventory cost component is reduced due to the increase in volume associated with trading after the report release. Similar to index fund roll activity, liquidity costs on USDA report release days remain low, averaging very near one ‘tick’ (0.25 cents). Our findings that liquidity costs are very minimally changed during USDA report releases and commodity index fund roll periods is consistent with other recent research on liquidity costs, but we show that what drives liquidity costs differs substantially depending on the circumstances surrounding daily trading.This article is protected by copyright.

  • Inducing value and institutional learning effects in stated choice
           experiments using advanced disclosure and instructional choice set
    • Authors: Tenaw G. Abate; Morten R. Mørkbak, Søren B. Olsen
      Abstract: This paper analyses the effect of inducing institutional and value learning in a choice experiment survey concerning food safety. Respondents were subjected to two types of treatments, namely Advance Disclosure (ADV) and Instructional Choice Set (ICS). Employing a split-sample setup, we test the effect of providing ICS and ADV in two treatment groups relative to a control group where learning is not induced. We further test and compare the effects of ADV and ICS directly against each other. We find some evidence that ICS reduces institutional uncertainty as intended. Moreover, the results suggest that both ICS and ADV could potentially remove a gender-specific status-quo bias.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved

  • Evaluating research and education performance in Indian agricultural
    • Authors: Nicholas Rada; David Schimmelpfennig
      Abstract: India's agricultural research spending has long been regionally uneven. Regional research intensity ratios, which account for size differences, indicate research spending has consistently favored southern and western states over northern, central, and eastern ones. Farm production patterns have, however, changed in recent years and regional output growth is being driven by new commodity mixes. In this paper we ask which region had the highest factor productivity growth and rate of return to investments in public agricultural research and higher education. Our analysis relies on a 1980–2008 Indian agricultural production and policy dataset together with a dual heteroscedastic production frontier to decompose total factor productivity (TFP) growth into formal technical progress and efficiency elements. The model's regional flexibility affords region-to-region comparison of multiple research return rates, TFP growth, and the elements influencing them. Regardless of return-rate measure or allocation scenario evaluated, the North has enjoyed the highest return to research spending, and the Central and East the lowest. Factor productivity growth has however been strongest in the South, primarily on account of efficiency gains. Overall, though, the technical progress and productivity growth easily attributable to government-supported research has been rather low.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved

  • The impact of deal-proneness on WTP estimates in incentive-aligned value
           elicitation methods
    • Authors: Lijia Shi; Jing Xie, Zhifeng Gao
      Abstract: Even after controlling for hypothetical biases, some incentive-aligned value elicitation methods still produce different willingness-to-pay (WTP) estimates. In this study, we compare WTP estimates from three incentive-aligned value elicitation methods: real choice experiment (RCE), real double-bounded dichotomous contingent valuation (RCVM), and Becker–DeGroot–Marschak auction (BDM). We find that participants’ aggressiveness in obtaining low prices (i.e., “deal-proneness”) influences WTP estimates in the BDM auction, but not those elicited from the RCE and RCVM. The participants with higher levels of deal-proneness tend to submit lower bids in the BDM auction. The discrepancies in WTP estimates between different incentive-aligned procedures are narrower for participants with lower levels of deal-proneness. Our results indicate that the bids in BDM auctions may be understated and the auction mechanism may induce the “gambling behavior” of people who are deal-prone. That is, whether the BDM auction is truly incentive-aligned is again called into question. We also discuss the practical implications for food retailers.This article is protected by copyright.

  • Energy-milk price transmission at the product brand level
    • Authors: Xun Li; Rigoberto Lopez, Shuai Yang
      Abstract: This article estimates the pass-through rates between diesel fuel and retail milk prices at the product brand level. Using a random coefficient logit demand model and taking the direct and indirect impacts of energy prices, this research identifies changes in pass-through rates before and after the great recession in 2008. Empirical results show that diesel prices significantly impacted the retail prices of milk products and are an important determinant of food price inflation. Pass-through rates are estimated to range from 0.16 to approximately 0.60 through 2008 with an average of 0.22 for the whole period. Statistical tests indicate that pass-through rates before June 2008 were significantly higher than after June 2008 when they dropped significantly to 0.04 to 0.17. Interestingly, private label brands have the lowest pass-through rates, implying that compared to manufacturer brands, private label prices are more insulated from diesel price shocks.This article is protected by copyright.

  • Neighbors follow early adopters under stress: Panel data analysis of
           submergence-tolerant rice in northern bangladesh
    • Authors: Takashi Yamano; Maria Luz Malabayabas, Md. Ashraful Habib, Subrata Kumar Das
      Abstract: The benefits of a stress-tolerant crop become visible under the stresses that the crop is tolerant against. We investigate the adoption of submergence-tolerant rice in northern Bangladesh by using panel data of 461 households, interviewed in 2013 and 2015. The sample households were randomly selected in 31 villages where submergence-tolerant rice seeds were given to a small number of farmers in each village. The results from the household fixed-effects model indicate that submergence in the previous year increased the adoption of submergence-tolerant rice. The adoption impact was larger among farmers who were neighbors of early seed recipients. Our results suggest that being neighbors of early seed recipients may have helped the neighboring farmers observe the benefits of the submergence-tolerant rice under submergence. The results indicate the importance of the information flow from early recipients to neighboring farmers.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved

  • Contract farming: Opportunity cost and trade-offs*
    • Authors: Marc F. Bellemare
      Abstract: An important literature has established that participation in contract farming leads to higher incomes and has a number of other beneficial effects on the welfare of participating households. Yet no one has looked at the opportunity cost of and the various trade-offs involved in participating in contract farming. I look at the relationship between participation in contract farming and income from (i) livestock, (ii) labor markets, (iii) nonfarm businesses, and (iv) agricultural sources other than livestock and contract farming as well as (v) unearned income. Using data from Madagascar, I find that participation in contract farming is associated with a 79 percent decrease in how much income per capita the average household derives from labor markets and a 47 percent decrease in how much income per capita it derives from nonfarm businesses, but also with a 51 percent increase in how much income per capita the average household derives from agricultural sources other than livestock and contract farming, possibly due to technological spillovers. Thus, even though contract farming has been shown to improve welfare in multiple ways in this context, it looks as though those gains come at the cost of an “agricultural involution” on the part of participating households, who seem to turn away from non-agricultural activities. This has important implications for structural transformation narratives.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved

  • The impact of EU trade preferences on the extensive and intensive margins
           of agricultural and food products
    • Authors: Margherita Scoppola; Valentina Raimondi, Alessandro Olper
      Abstract: In this article, we study the trade creation effects of EU preferential trade agreements (PTAs) in the agriculture and food sectors for a large sample of developing countries in the period 1990–2006. We investigate the extent to which the PTAs affect trade through the extensive margin—number of exported products—or the intensive margin—volume of existing products. We use a gravity framework in a panel data setting, and different estimators to deal with the issues of zero trade flows and the presence of an upper bound in the dependent variable. The results show that EU PTAs positively affect the extensive margin in agricultural trade, but not in processed foods. As regards the intensive margin, the effect is driven by the role of tariffs alone, whereas the other provisions of PTAs do not exert any other significant impact on agricultural or food products.

  • Knowledge diffusion and agricultural development
    • Authors: Md. Rabiul Islam; Jakob B. Madsen
      Abstract: Low agricultural productivity remains the primary source of poverty in the developing regions and yet little is known about the influence on agricultural productivity of domestic and international accumulated R&D knowledge and the channels through which this knowledge is transmitted internationally. Following a large scientific literature this paper argues that R&D and R&D knowledge spillover are ecozone specific and, therefore, are transmitted internationally through ecozones, where ecozones are the broadest biogeographic division of the earth's land surface. Using data for a panel of 88 countries it is shown that international knowledge spillovers are ecozone specific and have been an important contributing factor behind the marked widening of the income gap between developed and developing countries since 1983.This article is protected by copyright.

  • Effects of scale economies and production seasonality on optimal hub
           locations: the case of regional fresh produce aggregation
    • Authors: Houtian Ge; Patrick Canning, Stephan Goetz, Agnes Perez
      Abstract: Interest in supporting local and regional food systems is rising and food hubs have attracted considerable attention among Federal, State, and local policymakers. This study explores the problem of endogenous hub location in fresh produce value chains in the Northeastern United States. To overcome limitations in the literature, we incorporate the effects of economies of scale and production seasonality into our models. Three experimental models are designed to examine the effects of alternatively applying yearly, quarterly, and monthly data on model solutions. We explicitly assess how interactions of scale economies and seasonality influence the structure and spatial attributes of an optimal regional produce aggregation hub system. The three models generate marketed different solutions and in many respects they lead to different conclusions about developing local/regional supply chains. The monthly model allows for production seasonality and actual hub operation cycle frequency and thus leads to more efficient hub solution with rich policy implications.This article is protected by copyright.

  • Spatial determinants of productivity growth on agri-food Spanish firms: a
           comparison between co-operatives and investor-owned firms
    • Authors: M.Carmen Martínez-Victoria; Mariluz Maté Sánchez-Val, Narciso Arcas-Lario
      Abstract: This study analyses the effect of the spatial factor, location and interaction effects among peer companies, on the productivity growth of agri-food companies in Spain. With this aim, we build a productivity growth index and apply a multi-equational Seemingly Unrelated Regression on a sample of 344 Spanish co-operatives and investor-owned firms for the period 2010-2012. Our findings show that agri-food firms are influenced by spatial factors finding interesting differences between co-operatives and investor-owned firms. With regard to the geographical location, co-operatives in the western of Spain show higher productivity growth rates, whereas investor-owned firms in the northeast of Spain present better results. The interaction effect among closer peer companies is also a relevant factor to determine the productivity growth in agri-food companies. This factor is more relevant for co-operatives than for investor-owned firms.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved

  • Efficiency in wine grape production: comparing long-established and newly
           developed regions of South Africa
    • Authors: Jenifer Piesse; Beatrice Conradie, Colin Thirtle, Nick Vink
      Abstract: Efficiency, partly based on technology, is central to international competitiveness. This paper applies a stochastic frontier inefficiency model to a panel of 77 wine grape farms in South Africa between 2005 and 2015 and allows the comparison of efficiency levels for the old established wine regions with those of newer entrants. Thus, we investigate whether experience plus first choice of location matters more than the follower's advantage of newer technology.In all regions a greater share of permanent labor and increased supervision raised efficiency, while more inorganic fertilizer and less irrigation has the opposite effect. Innovations in trellising had insignificant effects (except in the old regions) but not replacing old vines reduced efficiency. However, a higher proportion of red varietals also lowered efficiency in the old regions due to a fall in the price of red wine as these farmers continued to concentrate on quality reds. The new regions compensated for falling prices by increasing crop size with irrigation and fertiliser and extending the area planted, but with less concern for quality. This appears to be more successful in efficiency terms, but as international demand for quality wine increases it may be a poor long term strategy.This article is protected by copyright.

  • Impact of training on the intensification of rice farming: evidence from
           rainfed areas in Tanzania
    • Authors: Yuko Nakano; Yuki Tanaka, Keijiro Otsuka
      Abstract: Agricultural development is indispensable for poverty reduction and food security in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). This study investigates the impact of rice production training in a modified version of the System of Rice Intensification (SRI) on the performance of small-scale rice farmers in a rain-fed area of Tanzania. Utilizing the plot level variation, we employ propensity score matching (PSM) to assess the impact of training on technology adoption, productivity, and profitability. We also estimate a difference-in-differences model with plot fixed effects using recall panel data covering the periods before and after training. We found that trainees achieved an average paddy yield of 4.7 tons per hectare and rice profit of 191.5 USD per hectare on the plots where new technologies were adopted, which is higher by about 1.3–1.8 tons and 119–137 USD per hectare than on the other plots. Our study suggests the high potential of transforming favorable rain-fed rice growing areas in SSA so as to achieve a rice Green Revolution through training in modern input use and improved agronomic practices.This article is protected by copyright.

  • Evaluating irrigation investments in Malawi: Economy-wide impacts under
           uncertainty and labor constraints
    • Authors: Franziska Schuenemann; James Thurlow, Stefan Meyer, Richard Robertson, Joao Rodrigues
      Abstract: Irrigation expansion is critical to increase crop yields and mitigate effects from climate change in Sub-Saharan Africa, but the low profitability has led to little irrigation investments in the region so far. Using an integrated modeling framework, we simultaneously evaluate the returns to irrigation arising from both economic and biophysical impact channels to understand what determines the profitability of irrigation in Malawi. Our results confirm that the returns to irrigation cannot cover the costs in Malawi. While labor-intensive irrigation expansion leads to unfavorable structural change in the short-run, the profitability hinges on low irrigated yields that fall far from expectations due to insufficient input use and crop management techniques. On the other hand, we find that the non-monetary benefits of irrigation regarding higher food security, lower poverty, and reduced vulnerability to climate change make investments in irrigation worthwhile to improve the livelihoods of smallholders.This article is protected by copyright.

  • Dynamics of smallholder participation in horticultural export chains -
           Evidence from Ecuador -
    • Authors: Cristina Romero Granja; Meike Wollni
      Abstract: We study the dynamics of smallholder participation in export value chains focusing on the example of small-scale broccoli producers in the highlands of Ecuador. Combining cross-sectional data from a household survey with eleven-year longitudinal data on export market transactions, we explain the hazards of dropping out of a high-value export chain. We apply a multi-spell cox duration model that allows us to consider multiple entries and exits from the supply chain. We also provide evidence on the welfare impacts associated with participation. The results suggest that small-scale farmers‧ exit from the export sector is accelerated by high transaction risks experienced in the past. While we find no particular evidence for the exclusion of small-scale farmers from the export sector, we do find that poorer households and female-headed households tend to drop out faster, especially as long as the sector is still prospering. Finally, when considering welfare effects, we do not find evidence that participation translates into tangible benefits for broccoli farmers. We discuss some measures that could help improve the long-term sustainability of smallholder integration in high-value chains.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved

  • Increasing agricultural productivity while reducing greenhouse gas
           emissions in Sub-Saharan Africa: myth or reality'
    • Authors: Eucabeth Majiwa; Boon L. Lee, Clevo Wilson
      Abstract: The motivation for this study stems from two major concerns that are interlinked. The first is the decades long food insecurity crisis faced by Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) countries which is still prevalent. The second, is the negative impact greenhouse gas (GHGs) emissions from agriculture may have on future food production and which is likely to worsen the food insecurity problem. The conundrum SSA farmers’ face is how to increase food output through productivity growth while minimizing GHG emissions. To measure changes in productivity growth and GHG emissions this study evaluates the agricultural performance of 18 SSA countries by utilizing the Malmquist-Luenberger index to incorporate good and bad outputs for the years 1980 to 2012. The empirical evidence demonstrates that productivity is overestimated when bad outputs are not considered in the production model. The analysis provides a better understanding of the effectiveness of previous mitigation methods and which informs an appropriate course of action needed to achieve the twin objectives of increasing agriculture productivity while reducing GHG emissions.This article is protected by copyright.

    • Authors: Mahamadou Roufahi Tankari; Anatole Goundan
      Abstract: Using an Augmented Factor Vector Autoregressive (FAVAR) Model, this study analyzes spatial millet prices transmission in Niger. Our results did not find condition for millet markets integration existence. However, the Granger causality tests and impulse response functions from the estimated short-term dynamic as FAVAR model revealed the existence of leading markets whose millet prices affect a maximum number of other regional millet prices, while some regions seem to be isolated from trade or information flows. Furthermore, the significance of a shock depends also on the characteristics of the region where it originates in terms of millet demand or supply, indicating that the region to target and where the price shock originated matter for the policies’ success.This article is protected by copyright.

  • How financial investment distorts food prices:evidence from US grain
    • Authors: Sophie Huellen
      Abstract: Convergence between commodity futures prices and the underlying physical assets at each contract's expiration date is a pivotal condition for the market's functioning. Between 2005 and 2010, convergence failed for several US grain markets. This paper presents a price pressure-augmented commodity storage model that links the scale of non-convergence to financial investment channeled through indices, which are traded in commodity futures markets. The model is empirically tested, using Markov regime-switching regression analysis. Regression results strongly support the model's predicted link between index investment and the extent of non-convergence for three grains traded at the Chicago Board of Trade: wheat, corn, and soybeans.This article is protected by copyright.
