Economics of aquaculture by Curtis M Jolly( Book )

12 editions published between 1992 and 2020 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economics of Aquaculture presents basic economic theory in a concise and logical format which is easily adaptable to practical application. Examples of economic solutions to common problems help you understand the need for economic application to aquaculture and the success that may come with sound economic planning and management. It also provides coverage of virtually all basic principles of microeconomics, farm management finance, and marketing applicable to the aquacultural industry. You will "walk" through the intricate maze of decisions which are necessary for success in the business environment.The regular and on-going business of aquacultural production and marketing is addressed as a continuous problem set for the student or producer. Business decisions are shown to be logical extensions of those in production and vice versa. A successful producer must be a successful business person if production is to remain an option. Thus, the real and logical need for economics in production is carefully presented.Additionally, producers and students alike will find that application of careful economic planning results in long-term viability for individual producers as well as community projects, cooperatives, or even governmental projects. Special sections in the book illustrate the savings or costs of right and wrong decisions as well as those related to short versus longer term planning and investment. Other topics covered in this book include: role of aquaculture in economic development fish demand and supply farm management and operation time value of money in the short- and long-term capital budgeting market structure and price theory government in aquacultureAlong with students, other readers will find the business help they need in Economics of Aquaculture. Professional aquaculturalists will find the topics of basic production economics, marketing, and cost analysis particularly relevant and governmental administrators will find the presentation of basic principles, time value of money, capital budgeting, and the role of government in aquaculture a valuable resource for years to come
Evaluating the competitiveness of US agricultural market commodities by John Mwangi Kagochi( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation is organized into three different topics in the field of international trade and economics that look at the competitiveness of US agricultural export commodities using different economic models and techniques. The first topic determines the impact of public R & D investments, Human Capital, and the competitiveness of US agricultural export commodities. The study generates an R & D and human capital index that is used to analyze the competitiveness of four US agricultural export commodities against the competitors. The results of the study indicate that investments in R & D influence agricultural commodity exports while the effect of human capital on agricultural commodities exports is mixed. The second topic uses specific factor model of production to predict the effects of projected output and price adjustment on the competitiveness of US genetically modified (GM) crops. The findings of the study demonstrate a positive relationship between successful adoption of GM technology and the projected adjustments in output and prices. Soybeans and corn sectors which have been most successful in adopting GM technology are found to have low elasticities of supply with respect to prices. While supply elasticity is an indicator of speed and magnitude of output adjustments as a result to changes in commodity price, lower elasticities make it possible for soybeans and corn sectors to lower their prices, without significant reduction in output. This makes them more competitive than crops that have not successfully adapted to GM technology. The third topic uses Almost Ideal Demand System (AIDS) model approach to evaluate the competitiveness of US wheat. Using the AIDS model approach to generate price and income elasticities as indicators of product differentiation, the study evaluates US wheat competitiveness against Australian wheat in the Egyptian market. The study also evaluates if the AIDS model can be used as a measure of agricultural export commodities competitiveness especially for commodities from different origins with perceived quality differences. Results from the study find that Australia has defended its market share and maintained higher prices by differentiating its wheat through creating a perception that its wheat is of better quality. Also, the US has a lower own-price elasticity may be an advantage in the short to medium term when the Egyptian economy is weak and foreign exchange has been especially tight. However, for US wheat to be competitive in the longer term it is necessary for the wheat industry to maintain lower prices, and improve its quality and quality image through effective promotional campaigns

Economic risks of aflatoxin contamination in the production and marketing of peanut in Benin by Cynthia Bley N'Dede( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Aflatoxins, naturally occurring mycotoxins produced by species of fungus (Aspergillus flavus and parasiticus), occur in many agricultural products, in particular peanut (Arachis Hypogea L.). This thesis focuses on farmers and market participants in Benin, examining the risk of aflatoxin contamination on producing and marketing peanut. It uses enterprise budget and risk analysis to evaluate the effects of aflatoxin contamination on production and marketing of peanut. Data were collected in 2007 through a personal survey in three agro-ecological zones. A total of 90 farmers, 45 traders, 90 processors and 45 stockers were interviewed. Laboratory analyses show that samples collected from processors had high levels of aflatoxin of up to 980 ppb, followed by the stockers with a maximum level of 610 ppb. Highest level for farmers was 230 ppb while for the traders, it was lower (7.3 ppb); these levels exceed the regulatory limits set by the WHO. Results show a decrease in net returns when farmers and market participants sort their products in an attempt to reduce aflatoxin levels. It is more profitable for producers and market participants to sell unsorted peanut immediately after harvest than to sort it before selling. Sorting peanut affects both labor cost and net returns. Unless they sell sorted peanut at a higher price there is no incentive to sort the peanut. In addition, findings indicate that aflatoxin production increases with storage length and this affects product quality and market prices. After 6 months of storage, net revenues from sale of peanut decrease due to lower peanut quality. Unless there is a policy in place for price increases for a better quality and safe product, market participants are likely to engage in cost shifting. Overall, results from enterprise budgets and risk analysis describe drying, sorting, and storage as the most important factors affecting costs and net returns. The results also show that the sorting of peanut may increase market risks of participants

Macro-Economic and Product Challenges Facing Vietnamese the Pangasius Industry( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

ABSTRACT: Vietnamese pangasius achieved global status as a highly competitive whitefish as exports to Europe, United States, Asian, and Latin American countries have grown at a rapid pace. Accelerated growth rates have met with a number of challenges that can be potentially converted to opportunities to foster further progress and expansion in exports. This study is a review of literature that examines the various economic and market issues facing the industry in the EU market. The review suggests that at the domestic level farmers must be organized alongside vertical integration to improve quality and supply consistency. Vertical integration may help reduce farm operating costs and increase farmer profit. High interest rates, fluctuating exchange rates, access to credit, lack of capital acquisition by small farmers, and product risks are key economic issues confronting the industry, whereas product quality and standards, product image, and rejection pose financial pressure on farmers, processors, and exporters. The fish, pangasius competes well in the white fish market and key product characteristics are well suited to vertical integration and horizontal differentiation in various and diverse EU markets. The industry may employ a combination of vertical and mixed product differentiation for improved product image and market share expansion in the EU white fish market
