    Modeling Agricultural Production Considering Water Quality and Risk

    Get PDF
    Environmental goals often conflict with the economic goals of agricultural producers. The Cottonwood River in Minnesota is heavily polluted with nitrogen, phosphate and sediment from agricultural sources in the watershed. Goals of profit maximization for producers conflict with those of effluent alleviation. We incorporate water quality goals and risk into a mathematical programming framework to examine economically efficient means of pollution abatement while considering a wide range of alternative production practices.Production Economics,

    A REGRESSION ANALYSIS OF THE EFFECTS OF PLANTING DATE AND VARIETY ON CORN YIELDS IN MINNESOTA

    Get PDF
    This paper reports the results of a regression analysis of the relationship between planting date and corn yield. The study is based on experiments done at Agricultural Experiment Stations in Waseca, Lamberton and Morris, Minnesota. The experiments were conducted with several corn varieties. In addition to the date of planting, the estimated yield response equations include relative maturity as an explanatory variable. Other management practices included in the models are seeding and fertilization rates. Interactions among explanatory variables are estimated, also.Crop Production/Industries,
