The coexistence of genetically modified, organic and conventional foods : government policies and market practices by Nicholas G Kalaitzandonakes( )

12 editions published in 2016 in English and German and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since their commercial introduction in 1996, genetically modified (GM) crops have been adopted by farmers around the world at impressive rates. In 2011, 180 million hectares of GM crops were cultivated by more than 15 million farmers in 29 countries. In the next decade, global adoption is expected to grow even faster as the research pipeline for new biotech traits and crops has increased almost fourfold in the last few years. The adoption of GM crops has led to increased productivity, while reducing pesticide use and the emissions of agricultural greenhouse gases, leading to broadly distributed economic benefits across the global food supply chain. Despite the rapid uptake of GM crops, the various social and economic benefits as well as the expanding rate innovation, the use of GM crops remains controversial in parts of the world. Despite the emergence of coexistence between GM, organic and conventional crops as a key policy and practical issue of global scale, there is no coherent literature that addresses it directly. Governments and market stakeholders in many countries are grappling with policy alternatives that settle conflicting property rights, minimize negative market externalities and associated liabilities, maximize the economic benefits of innovation and allow producer and consumer choice. This book intends to fill these needs with contributions from the top theoreticians, legal and economic analysts, policy makers and industry practitioners in the field. As the economics and policy of coexistence start to emerge as an separate subfield in agricultural, environmental and natural resource economics with an increasing number of scholars working on the topic, the book will also provide a comprehensive base in the literature for those entering the area, making it of interest to students, scholars and policy-makers alike.
Risk and uncertainty in environmental and natural resource economics by International Conference on Risk and Uncertainty in Environmental and Resource Economics( Book )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores some of the complexities of decision-making under risk and uncertainty in environmental and natural resource economics. Risk and uncertainty are inherent problems for economists, and the authors in this volume offer numerous challenges and opportunities to improve the tools we use to assess these concepts. They begin by studying various environmental issues such as climate change and biodiversity conservation to underline the importance of identifying different forms of uncertainty and irreversibility. They move on to consider the implications risk and uncertainty have on economic development and environmental policies, and study the attitudes of different user-groups to these issues. Finally, they examine the natural resource management dilemmas faced by the private sector including issues of optimal resource allocation, insurance problems and consumer behaviour [publisher]

Environmental costs and benefits of transgenic crops( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Concern about the environmental impacts of transgenic crops is one of the major reasons for the EU's quasi-moratorium on GMOs. The contributions in this book show that the economic implications of these concerns are far-reaching and complex. They range from the farm level to research and technology development on the one side and consumer reactions on the other side, and influence not only government response but also international trade and public and private incentives for R & D"--BOOKJACKET

Governing the co-existence of GM crops ex-ante regulation and ex-post liability under uncertainty and irreversibility by Volker Beckmann( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The future institutional environment for the co-existence of genetically modified (GM) crops, conventional crops and organic crops in Europe combines measures of ex-ante regulation and ex-post liability rules. Against this background we ask the following two questions: How does ex-ante regulation and ex-post liability under irreversibility and uncertainty affect the adoption of GM crops? What are the implications for regional agglomeration of GM and non-GM crops? Ex-ante regulations and ex-post liabilities for using GM crops will induce additional costs. These costs are modelled in a classical way. The model is advanced by including irreversibility and uncertainty and taking into account transaction costs of negotiating possible solutions with neighbouring farmers which are assumed to be partially irreversible. The results show that the design of ex-ante regulation and ex-post liability increases the value of waiting and results in less immediate adoption of the GM technology. Additionally, the rules and regulations in the EU do provide incentives for the regional agglomeration of GM and non-GM crops that are mainly driven by the irreversibility effect of the ex-ante regulatory and ex-post liability costs

Ex-ante regulation and ex-post liability under uncertainty and irreversibility : governing the coexistence of GM crops by Volker Beckmann( )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ex-ante regulations and ex-post liabilities for using a new technology will induce additional costs for adopters. The standard model is advanced by including irreversibility and uncertainty and taking into account transaction costs of negotiating possible cost reductions. The case analysed is the coexistence policy for GM crops in the European Union. Results show, the design of the rules and regulations can provide strong incentives for regional agglomeration of GM and non-GM farmers
Overview of the agricultural inputs sector in the EU by Justus Wesseler( )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study analyzes the seed, feed, energy, fertilizer, and plant protection agents farm input sectors from two perspectives: the demand side and the supply side. Average input shares in the EU-27 for seeds and fertilizers declined while they increased for feeds. Market concentration is the largest in the plant protection agents sector followed by the energy sector, and lowest in the feed sector
Index funds' financial speculation with agricultural commodities functioning : effects by Thomas Glauben( )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long-only-Indexfonds stehen seit geraumer Zeit unter Verdacht, für die Preisanstiege an landwirtschaftlichen Warenterminmärkten verantwortlich zu sein. Hieraus wird die Forderung abgleitet, den Aktivitätsradius dieser Indexfonds drastisch einzuschränken. Allerdings stehen solche Forderungen sowie die zugrunde liegende Diagnose im Widerspruch zum aktuellen Stand wissenschaftlicher Erkenntnis. Die empirisch orientierte Literatur liefert bisher keine belastbare Evidenz, dass Long-only-Indexfonds mit ihren Termingeschäften das Niveau bzw. die Volatilität der Preise für Agrarrohstoffe signifikant angehoben haben. Neue theoretische Arbeiten weisen vielmehr darauf hin, dass Long-only-Indexfonds gemäß ihrer Anlagestrategie tendenziell die Agrarrohstoffpreise stabilisieren sowie eine wichtige Versicherungs- und Wettbewerbsfunktion auf Agrarmärkten erfüllen. Durch ihr Engagement sinken die Risikoprämien, so dass sich Nahrungsmittelproduzenten zu niedrigeren Kosten gegen Preisschwankungen absichern können. Die niedrigeren Risikoprämien motivieren Landwirte, einen größeren Teil ihrer Ernte einzulagern, was saisonalen Preisschwankungen entgegenwirkt. Im Sinne einer nachhaltigen Sicherung der globalen Nahrungsmittelversorgung sollte von strengen Marktzutrittsregulierungen der Long-only-Indexfonds abgesehen werden
Research for AGRI Committee : the EU cattle sector : challenges and opportunities - milk and meat - study by Rico Ihle( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The cattle sector is of great economic importance within the EU agricultural sector. Productivity of the sector is very heterogeneous. In the near future, a further increase in milk and bovine meat supply can be expected. To avoid a decline in farm gate prices, further product differentiation at the EU level, an increase in export opportunities as well as compensation for environmental services to support extensification will be needed

Economic aspects of the regulatory framework in the area of fertilizers : in-depth analysis by Justus Wesseler( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study discusses economic implications of the proposed EU regulation on the market of CE marked fertilizers. Depending on the design of the regulation, the costs can be substantial. The expected additional costs of introducing mandatory or voluntary maximum threshold levels for cadmium in inorganic fertilizer are larger than the expected benefits. Measuring cadmium concentration in food in combination with food consumption information seems to be a more cost-effective strategy. Harmonizing the standards for new fertilizing products entering the EU market can increase their supply, support the development of the bio-economy and hence should be enforced. This document was prepared for Policy Department A at the request of the Committee on Internal Market and Consumer Protection
Essays on the political economy of trade and regulation : biotechnology and conservation by Qianqian Shao( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The GM food group points to the high yields, environmental benefits, and potential for sustainable agricultural production. The non-GM food group, however, emphasizes the unconfirmed potential risks of genetic modification to human health and the environment. There are two major GM food policy regimes: the EU Member States have very strict GM food regulations, whereas the US has relatively lenient GM food policy regulations with respect to cultivation and imports. A stricter GM food policy would generate high welfare costs to countries that face food security issues, and possibly reduce a country's food self-sufficiency. Also, different GM food policy regulations give rise to different national standards, differentiate agricultural trade markets, and result in trade disputes
Coexistence of GMO production, labeling policies, and strategic firm interaction by Thomas Johann Venus( )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation analyzes the market effects of the coexistence of genetically modified organism (GMO) and conventional production, labeling policies, and strategic firm interactions through vertical product differentiation. Although we focus on GMOs, the applied frameworks can be adopted and extended to other differentiated products where similar concepts apply
