  • Scott M. Swinton
    • Abstract: The son of a foreign correspondent, Scott Swinton was born in Rome, Italy, and grew up in New York City. The family apartment was frequented by journalists from around the world. New York in the 1960s and 1970s was part intercultural melting pot and part cauldron of social ferment. Several summers in the Hudson Valley acquainted Swinton with farming and gardening. Urban summer jobs in high school at a plant store and running a community park cemented his fondness for growing things, as well as for the people who care for them.

  • Why Should I Believe Your Applied Economics'
    • Authors: Swinton S.
      Pages: 381 - 391
      Abstract: In an era of rising skepticism about science, this article explores what agricultural and applied economists can do to advance knowledge. If knowledge is what is believed by the preponderance of a community, then the key to advancing knowledge is to build substantive arguments—ones that are persuasive. To evaluate the substantiveness of an argument, this article develops a framework based on validity, topic, and audience. Applying that framework to two highly-cited articles, this article concludes that validity is a necessary condition for a substantive argument, but relevance (of topic to audience) is the sufficient condition. Applied economists are well-positioned to build compelling, objective arguments by fitting appropriate theory and methods to relevant, important topics.

  • Reflections on Agricultural R&D, Productivity, and the Data
           Constraint: Unfinished Business, Unsettled Issues
    • Authors: Alston J.
      Pages: 392 - 413
      Abstract: Sixty years ago, T.W. Schultz introduced the idea of the productivity “residual” to agricultural economics (1956). Schultz’s main message was that growth in conventional inputs accounted for little of the observed growth in agricultural output, and that there was work to be done by agricultural economists to understand and ultimately eliminate this unexplained residual called “productivity.” Thus was launched the economics of agricultural productivity as a sub-field within agricultural economics, along with the economics of agricultural R&D and innovation and related government policy. Much progress has been made in the decades since. Still, critical issues remain unresolved. This matters because agricultural innovation and productivity matter, and so do the related policies that rest to some extent on our established understanding of the economic relationships. In this paper I review some unsettled issues related to economic models and measures applied to agricultural R&D and productivity, and some unfinished business in terms of economic and policy questions that are not yet well answered. Before doing that, I present some evidence on agricultural productivity and why it matters. Next, with a nod to “factology,” I present available productivity measures from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and International Science and Technology Practice and Policy (InSTePP) Center, and compare them in the context of translog cost function models. In subsequent sections I use these and other data to develop new evidence related to two contentious questions: (a) Do farmers benefit from public agricultural R&D' (b) Has U.S. agricultural productivity growth slowed in recent decades' The answers are revealed within.

  • Modeling Heterogeneous Farm Responses to European Union Biofuel Support
           with a Random Parameter Multicrop Model
    • Authors: Koutchadé O; Carpentier A, Femenia F.
      Pages: 434 - 455
      Abstract: Although there is now widespread evidence of substantial variability in economic agents’ responses to economic drivers in many applied economics fields, this variability has been largely overlooked by econometric agricultural production models. This article sets out to fill this gap by providing methodological contributions and empirical results. First, we consider panel data multicrop models featuring random intercept and slope parameters to account for the heterogeneous responses of crop producers to economic drivers. Second, we show that Monte Carlo expectation-maximization algorithms are particularly well-suited to estimating this type of model. Third, based on an application of our empirical modeling framework with a sample of French grain crop producers, we demonstrate substantial variability in farmers’ responses to economic incentives. Fourth, we use the estimated model and a simple “statistical calibration” procedure to build farm-specific simulation models, which are then used to evaluate the effects of the rapeseed price increase induced by European Union (EU) biofuel support. Our simulation results demonstrate that ignoring the variability in the considered farmers’ responses to the economic incentives results in significant overestimation of the increases in rapeseed yield levels and variable input use levels induced by EU biofuel support, as well as significant underestimation of the variability in the congruent increases in rapeseed acreages.

  • Corn Ethanol and U.S. Biofuel Policy 10 Years Later: A Quantitative
    • Authors: Hochman G; Zilberman D.
      Pages: 570 - 584
      Abstract: We conduct meta-analyses of the estimated impacts of corn ethanol on food and fuel prices, as well as greenhouse gases, and analyze the implications for the balance of trade. The meta-analyses suggest that corn ethanol has minor effects on greenhouse gas emissions and significant yet moderate effects on food and fuel prices. However, corn ethanol has a relatively significant impact on fuel security in terms of reductions in the import of oil to the U.S. and its overall effect on the U.S. balance of trade.

  • Designing Climate Policy: Lessons from the Renewable Fuel Standard and the
           Blend Wall
    • Authors: Lade G; Cynthia Lin Lawell C, Smith A.
      Pages: 585 - 599
      Abstract: Many policies mandate renewable energy production to combat global climate change. These policies often differ significantly from first-best policy prescriptions. Among the largest renewable energy mandates enacted to date is the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS), which mandates biofuel consumption far beyond what is feasible with current technology and infrastructure. We critically review the methods used by the Environmental Protection Agency to project near- and long-term compliance costs under the RFS, and draw lessons from the RFS experience to date that would improve the program’s efficiency. The lessons are meant to inform both future RFS rulemaking and the design of future climate policies. We draw two lessons specific to the RFS. First, incorporate uncertainty into rulemaking; second, implement multi-year rules. Multi-year rulemaking allows for longer periods between major regulatory decisions and sends greater certainty to markets. We also provide two more general recommendations: tie waiver authority to compliance costs or include cost containment provisions, and fund research and development of new technologies directly rather than mandating them. Future technological advancement is uncertain, and mandating new technologies has proven to be largely ineffective to date, particularly in fuel markets.

  • Genetic Engineering and Risk in Varietal Selection of Potatoes
    • Authors: Fuller K; Brester G, Boland M.
      Pages: 600 - 608
      Abstract: The objective of this case study is to examine the farm management decision of whether to adopt a new, genetically engineered potato variety. We describe the potato supply chain from seed production to final consumer products and explore how price and production risk interact to influence decision making at each link in that chain. We provide extensive supplemental material as well, including a teaching note with assignment and/or discussion questions, an introduction to and application of stakeholder theory, and a tool that assists students in calculating expected and simulated actual returns from their choice of potato variety.

  • Is Growing Oranges in Florida a Good Investment'
    • Authors: Trejo-Pech C; Spreen T, Zansler M.
      Pages: 625 - 639
      Abstract: We provide a financial model to evaluate an orange grove investment in Florida, the producing region supplying around 90% of U.S. domestic production of orange juice. A representative orange grower planting early-mid varieties for the processed market is featured in the case. The study assumes that an existing grove has become disease-infested to a degree that there is little, if any economic value in maintaining it. The grower is left with the choice to replant the grove or to convert the land to other uses. The replanting baseline model yields a 9.7% Modified Internal Rate of Return (MIRR) and the Monte Carlo simulation shows that MIRR is equal or higher than the 7.5% hurdle rate around 81% times the model is simulated. The risk of managing an orange grove is higher than a decade ago mainly due to the presence of citrus greening, a disease that reduces yields and degrades fruit quality, causing variability in productivity and operating costs. Opportunities for growers include planting incentive programs implemented by both the government and major citrus processors and from policy changes such as the possibility of changes in depreciation of new investment for income tax purposes. Readers of this case study are expected to challenge the assumptions of the financial model and consider additional elements of risk and opportunities on their assessment of the potential orange grove investment.

  • Pass or Fail: Economic Incentives to Reduce Salmonella Contamination in
           Ground Beef Sold to the National School Lunch Program
    • Authors: Ollinger M; Bovay J.
      Pages: 414 - 433
      Abstract: Ground beef sold to the USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) for distribution to the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) must meet stringent food-safety standards, specifically, a zero-tolerance standard for Salmonella. We use a unique data set containing information on Salmonella levels in order to examine the sequential decisions of ground-beef plants to become registered as AMS suppliers and then bid on contracts to supply the NSLP from 2006 to 2012. We find that plants exploit their competitive advantages in relatively high productivity and strong performance on Salmonella tests when choosing to bid on contracts in a given year. Furthermore, the incentives generated by the zero-tolerance standard for Salmonella are highly effective: ground beef supplied to the NSLP is 21–22 percentage points more likely to meet a zero-tolerance standard for Salmonella than ground beef tested as part of typical meat-plant inspections.

  • Measuring Price Risk in Rating Revenue Coverage: BS or No BS'
    • Authors: Goodwin B; Harri A, Rejesus R, et al.
      Pages: 456 - 478
      Abstract: The Black-Scholes (BS) option pricing model has been a cornerstone of modern financial theories since its introduction by Black and Scholes (1973) and its subsequent refinement by Merton (1973). The model has realized widespread adoption for a number of purposes. Inherent in the model are a number of assumptions. An important and potentially restrictive assumption is that the underlying asset price is log–normally distributed. Among the many diverse uses of the BS model, the model and underlying theory are used to derive measurements of the variance of expected (harvest-time) prices for use in rating revenue coverage in the federal crop insurance program. Revenue coverage currently accounts for about 80% of the total liability insured in the program. This liability frequently exceeds $100 billion and thus the accuracy of revenue premium rates is of vital importance. The use of the BS model by the Risk Management Agency (RMA) of the USDA has been the focus of recent criticisms of the program. Critics have argued in favor of retrospective measures of price variability that are based on historical price movements or have recommended other approaches to measuring price risk. This article reports on a contracted review of revenue insurance rating methodology commissioned by RMA. We evaluate a number of alternative approaches to measuring expected price variability, including several approaches recommended by critics of the federal program. Our results suggest that the BS model is preferred to recommended alternatives on the basis of numerous criteria.

  • Anchoring Bias in Recall Data: Evidence from Central America
    • Authors: Godlonton S; Hernandez M, Murphy M.
      Pages: 479 - 501
      Abstract: Self-reported retrospective survey data is widely used in empirical work but may be subject to cognitive biases, even over relatively short recall periods. This paper examines the role of anchoring bias in self-reports of objective and subjective outcomes under recall. We use a unique panel-survey dataset of smallholder farmers from four countries in Central America collected over a period of three years. We exploit differences between recalled and concurrent responses to quantify the degree of mental anchoring in survey recall data. We assess whether respondents use their reported value for the most recent period as a cognitive heuristic when recalling the value from a previous period, while controlling for the value they reported earlier. The results show strong evidence of sizeable anchoring bias in self-reported retrospective indicators for both objective measures (income, wages, and working hours) and subjective measures (reports of happiness, health, stress, and well-being). We also generally observe a larger bias in response to negative changes for objective indicators and a larger bias in response to positive changes for subjective indicators.

  • Agricultural Cooperatives and Investment in Organic Soil Amendments and
           Chemical Fertilizer in China
    • Authors: Ma W; Abdulai A, Goetz R.
      Pages: 502 - 520
      Abstract: In this article, we develop a dynamic model to show how membership in agricultural cooperatives influences smallholder farmers’ decisions to invest in organic soil amendments and chemical fertilizer. The model considers management decisions of heterogonous producers within an intertemporal framework, with the decision to join the cooperative assumed to be endogenous. Farm-level data of apple farmers from three provinces in China are used to estimate the impact of cooperative membership on investment in organic soil amendments and chemical fertilizer. A recursive bivariate probit model that accounts for potential endogeneity of cooperative membership and selection bias is employed in the empirical analysis. The empirical results show that cooperative membership exerts a positive and statistically significant impact on the likelihood of investing in organic soil amendments. The findings also reveal that tenure security, human capital, farm size, and access to credit positively and significantly influence the probability of a farmer joining a cooperative and the likelihood of investing in soil quality measures.

  • Village Political Economy, Land Tenure Insecurity, and the Rural to Urban
           Migration Decision: Evidence from China
    • Authors: Giles J Mu R.
      Pages: 521 - 544
      Abstract: This article investigates the impact of land tenure insecurity on the migration decisions of China’s rural residents from 1995 to 2003. The article appeals to a simple model to frame the relationship between migration and the probability that a reallocation of land in the village will occur in the following year. Empirically, the article first demonstrates that a village leader’s support for an administrative land reallocation carries with it the risk of losing a future election. Exploiting election timing and village heterogeneity in lineage group composition, the article identifies the effect of reallocation risk on migration decisions. In response to an expected land reallocation in the following year, the probability that a rural resident migrates out of the county declines by 2.4 percentage points, which accounts for 15% of the annual share of village residents, aged 16 to 50, who worked as migrants during the period. This finding underscores the potential importance of secure property rights for facilitating labor market integration and the movement of labor out of agriculture.

  • Global Economic Growth and Agricultural Land Conversion under Uncertain
           Productivity Improvements in Agriculture
    • Authors: Lanz B; Dietz S, Swanson T.
      Pages: 545 - 569
      Abstract: We study how stochasticity in the evolution of agricultural productivity interacts with economic and population growth at the global level. We use a two-sector Schumpeterian model of growth, in which a manufacturing sector produces the traditional consumption good and an agricultural sector produces food to sustain contemporaneous population. Agriculture demands land as an input, itself treated as a scarce form of capital. In our model both population and sectoral technological progress are endogenously determined, and key technological parameters of the model are structurally estimated using 1960-2010 data on world GDP, population, cropland and technological progress. Introducing random shocks to the evolution of total factor productivity in agriculture, we show that uncertainty optimally requires more land to be converted into agricultural use as a hedge against production shortages, and that it significantly affects both optimal consumption and population trajectories.

  • The Economic and Health Effects of the 2014 Chemical Spill in the Elk
           River, West Virginia
    • Authors: Guilfoos T; Kell D, Boslett A, et al.
      Pages: 609 - 624
      Abstract: In January 2014, Freedom Industries spilled 4-methylcyclohexylmethanol, a chemical foaming agent used in coal processing, from a storage facility into the Elk River in West Virginia. This chemical spill, one of the most significant in U.S. history, adversely affected the drinking water supply of over 300,000 individuals in the Charleston, West Virginia Metropolitan area. We use synthetic control methods to estimate the casual effects on macro-economic growth and infant health outcomes from this water crisis. We find a significant decrease in 5-minute Apgar Scores, a measure of how babies fare in the birthing process and outside of the womb, after the chemical spill. We do not find significant effects for infant birthweight or gestational age. We find a statistically insignificant decrease of per capita GDP in the Charlestown, West Virginia area compared to the synthetic control of 3% two years after the chemical spill.
