Are Agricultural Professionals’ Farmland Value And Crop Price Forecasts Consistent?, Wendong Zhang, Wei Zhang, Chad E. Hart 2018 Iowa State University of Science and Technology

Are Agricultural Professionals’ Farmland Value And Crop Price Forecasts Consistent?, Wendong Zhang, Wei Zhang, Chad E. Hart

Wendong Zhang

Using agricultural professionals’ forecasts of future farmland values and corn and soybean cash prices for their service area, we analyze whether their land and corresponding crop price expectations are consistent. We find that changes in expected land prices over time are positively correlated with expected crop price changes, suggesting these two forecasts are somewhat consistent. More importantly, we find that the linkage between these two forecasts is significantly stronger in the medium- and long-term as opposed to the short-term, as well as a substantially stronger correlation for districts that have heavier reliance on crop production as a net farm income ...

After Repeal Of The “Small Partnership” In 2015, What Next?, Neil E. Harl 2018 Iowa State University

After Repeal Of The “Small Partnership” In 2015, What Next?, Neil E. Harl

Agricultural Law Digest

After a shocking and unannounced repeal of the “small partnership” provision in late 2015, as part of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015,1 which was enacted as part of the Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility of 1982, the stunned users of that part of the 1982 Act began to raise questions. When does it go into effect? Will I end up with partnership status? Will I have a choice on what I can shift to? Will that shift be automatic or will it be an election? In the 27 months which have elapsed since enactment, not one word has ...

New Trends At The Nutrition And Online Markets Focused On The American And The Hungarian Consumers, Katalin Tari, Brian Parr, Iin Handayani, Regina Zsuzsanna Reicher 2018 Szent Istvan University, Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences

New Trends At The Nutrition And Online Markets Focused On The American And The Hungarian Consumers, Katalin Tari, Brian Parr, Iin Handayani, Regina Zsuzsanna Reicher

Iin Handayani

Understanding online consumer behavior is an important undertaking in the field of business. With the Internet becoming more popular and accessible, the relationship between companies and their customers has drastically changed. The sales process is becoming more of a two-way communication relationship but there are many differences between the American and Hungarian markets. Therefore, the objective of this study was to examine methods and procedures employed in the online nutrition market, based on the American and the Hungarian consumer sector. This research served to point out the possible methods and indications which allowed the integrated testing of performance on different ...


The “Gallenstein” Rule: Slowly Slipping Away, Neil E. Harl 2018 Iowa State University

The “Gallenstein” Rule: Slowly Slipping Away, Neil E. Harl

Agricultural Law Digest

Most legal rules exist until the rule is repealed, the rule comes to the end of its stated term or is held to be unconstitutional. But one, the so-called “Gallenstein” Rule, which has been in existence only for 26 years, is slowly slipping into oblivion. That rule, the indirect product of the 1976 amendment of joint tenancy rules,1 did not emerge until 1991 when the case of Gallenstein v. United States was decided by the Federal District Court of the Eastern District of Kentucky and the case was later affirmed by the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.2

Ecological And Economic Benefits Of Integrating Sheep Into Viticulture Production, Meredith T. Niles, Rachael Garrett, Drew Walsh 2018 The University of Vermont

Ecological And Economic Benefits Of Integrating Sheep Into Viticulture Production, Meredith T. Niles, Rachael Garrett, Drew Walsh

College of Agriculture and Life Sciences Faculty Publications

The integration of crop and livestock systems has been recognized for its potential to reduce the environmental impacts associated with agriculture and improve farmer livelihoods. However, to date, most research has focused on the integration of cattle into crop and pasture systems. Here we examine the integration of sheep into vineyards and assess farmers’ perceived benefits and costs of the practice. Viticulture expansion has led to significant land use change in recent years and new environmental challenges, particularly with respect to herbicide use. Sheep integration into vineyards offers the potential to utilize the synergies of both systems to reduce external ...


Industrial Output Fluctuations In Developing Countries: General Equilibrium Consequences Of Agricultural Productivity Shocks, Iona Hyojung LEE 2018 Singapore Management University

Industrial Output Fluctuations In Developing Countries: General Equilibrium Consequences Of Agricultural Productivity Shocks, Iona Hyojung Lee

Research Collection School Of Economics

This paper shows that a negative shock to agricultural productivity may increase food prices, and labor and capital can move away from manufacturing into agriculture to meet the subsistence requirement for food. This effect depends on income levels and openness to trade. Using annual manufacturing data and rainfall shocks as the instrument for crop yields (proxy for agricultural productivity), I find that an exogenous decline in yield decreases manufacturing output as well as employment and capital investment in manufacturing. Overall, crop yield variation can explain up to 44% of industrial output fluctuations in developing countries (rainfall shocks cause 31% of ...


A Note On Mitigating The Adverse Scale Effects Of Associated With Daily Driving Restrictions, Arthur Caplan, Man-Keun Kim 2018 Utah State University

A Note On Mitigating The Adverse Scale Effects Of Associated With Daily Driving Restrictions, Arthur Caplan, Man-Keun Kim

Arthur J. Caplan

This paper investigates the role of additional regulation in mitigating the ‘adverse scale effect’
associated with daily driving restrictions, which has become a popular regulatory tool used
to control episodic air pollution internationally, especially in developing countries. We find
that although an annual vehicle registration tax reduces the incentive to purchase additional
vehicles among households whose sole purpose for doing so is to ‘cheat’ the restriction (i.e.,
the ‘adverse scale effect’), it does so with an external cost. The cost occurs because households
whose purpose for purchasing an additional vehicle is not to cheat the restriction are given
the ...


Points To Watch With Revocable Trusts, Neil E. Harl 2018 Iowa State University

Points To Watch With Revocable Trusts, Neil E. Harl

Agricultural Law Digest

Revocable trusts go by several names – living trusts, inter vivos trusts, revocable trusts, grantor trusts – but regardless of name, the trusts bearing any of the names are basically the same, although such trusts should be read with care because the language used in the trust may affect the ultimate disposition of the property held in the trust. With such a trust, the grantor creates the trust by executing a trust agreement and ordinarily funds the trust by transferring property to the trust during the life of the grantor.
