Description
USDA Conservation Reserve Program (CRP). Objectives: diminish soil disintegration, upgrade air and water quality, extend and enhance natural life territory and wetlands Retires cropland utilizing 10-15 year contracts Compensates landowners utilizing yearly rental installments, expense offer help, and motivation installments. National Enrollment : 36.8 million sections of land ($1.8b/yr) Minnesota Enrollment: 1.8 million sections of land.

"Estimating the Determinants and Effects of Participation in the USDA\'s Conservation Reserve Program." Prepared for: Camp Resources XV August 7-8, 2008 Jacob N. Brimlow Ph.D. Competitor Agricultural and Resource Economics NCSU

Slide 2

USDA Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) National Enrollment : 36.8 million sections of land ($1.8b/yr) Minnesota Enrollment : 1.8 million sections of land Goals: diminish soil disintegration, upgrade air and water quality, grow and enhance natural life living space and wetlands Retires cropland utilizing 10-15 year contracts Compensates landowners utilizing yearly rental installments , cost share help, and motivator installments **

Slide 3

Enrolling in the CRP ( "general" recruits since 1990) Landowner "Offers": The Environmental Benefits Index (EBI) Score Landowner picks land to enlist, preservation practice to embrace, and rental rate/cost share help to demand Seven EBI variables are counted to figure general score - cost calculate punishes higher rental rate offers Bids are positioned by EBI score, and EBI cutoff controlled by FSA after all offers are gotten

Slide 4

Does enlistment in the CRP influence the estimation of selected farmland? Address what difference does it make?

Slide 5

Does enlistment in the CRP influence the estimation of selected farmland? Theory

Slide 6

Does enlistment in the CRP influence the estimation of selected farmland? Speculation Yes

Slide 7

Hypothesis Note : CRP is deliberate Assume : Landowners are benefit maximizers landowners won\'t enlist in CRP unless benefits increment bundles confined under CRP will be worth at any rate as much as those that are not Hypothesis : Ceteris paribus , CRP enlistment will have a non-negative impact on the estimation of selected farmland

Slide 8

Estimation y - vector of illustrative factors ( efficiency , area, and so on) A* - CRP enlistment and I think z - vector of informative factors ( profitability , area, and so forth)

Slide 9

Enrollment Does CRP enlistment depend, experimentally, on factors prone to impact arrive esteem?

Slide 10

Estimation: Enrollment z - vector of illustrative factors (profitability, area, and so on) A* - CRP enlistment (nonstop or twofold) Literature County Data Parks and Kramer (1995) Esseks and Kraft (1988) Plantinga, et. al. (1990) Goodwin and Smith (2003) Isik and Yang (2004) County/Farm Data Roberts and Lubowski (2007) Jake Key Variables : Land Productivity, Government installments, Erosion, CRP offers/installments Results : Mixed

Slide 11

Estimation y - vector of logical factors ( profitability , area, and so on) A* - CRP enlistment and I\'m almost certain z - vector of informative factors ( efficiency , area, and so forth) choice predisposition/related mistakes...

Estimation: Farmland Value and Conservation Programs Positive Effect Shoemaker (1989) * No Effect (Insignificant) Vitaliano and Hill (1994) Nickerson and Lynch (2001) Negative Effect Taff (2004) * Shultz and Taff (2004) Anderson and Weinhold (2005) Taff and Weisberg (2007) * Goodwin, et. al. (working) Key Variables : Land Productivity, Location Estimation Issues : Selection predisposition, information quality, example measure * Estimate the impact of enlistment in the CRP

Slide 13

Farmland Value Township Data (Log of) Farmland esteem per section of land 2007 Proportion of township selected in CRP Productivity (CPI): Scale 1-100 weighted normal profitability of township by soil extent of land in efficiency "review" Population development 1990-2000, 2000-2007 level 1990, 2000-2007 Location (province, NASS area)

Slide 16

Let\'s discussion about... - information determination (area, township, divide) - information sort (spatial?) - take a gander at qualified cropland just - estimation procedure (two-arrange/IV, diff in diff, spatial?) - choice qualities (alternative to select, choice to create)

Quick View: Enrollment Regression

Slide 21

Productivity Data Parcel/Farm Analysis Crop Equivalency Rating (CER) - region list 0-100 - catches disintegration, atmosphere, soil porousness - created in a few areas as ahead of schedule as 1972 - just accessible in select provinces Township Analysis Crop Productivity Index (CPI) - region record 0-100 - catches capacity of soil develop corn - NO disintegration or atmosphere conformities - produced 2007 - accessible far reaching

Slide 23

Model Implication Where A* is the grounds enlisted, c is the per section of land installment for resigning land from generation, and z is a vector of factors that influence the net efficiency of land. Test utilizing:

Slide 24

Crop Equivalency Rating (CER) Reflects the net financial return per section of land of soil when property is overseen for the most elevated net return. balanced for climate CER\'s are in respect to different properties in every area But, limits test estimate outdated

Slide 29

Enrollment: Remaining Issues 1. Efficiency Data (Crop Equivalency Rating - CER) - covers just a few regions, and is obsolete 2. Profitability Acreage Link - privacy issues have made better determination troublesome 3. Government Payments Data - arrive qualities or dollars ?
