Ogallala Aquifer Depletion: Economic Impact on the Texas High Plains
The impacts of the depletion of the Ogallala aquifer on the economy of the Southern High Plains of Texas were estimated by predicting future cropping patterns over a 30-year time horizon as the saturated thickness of the ...
Cotton Farmers' Technical Efficiency: Stochastic and Nonstochastic Production Function Approaches
(Notheastern Agricultural and Resource Economics Assocation, 2002-10)
Technical efficiency for cotton growers is examined using both stochastic (SFA) and nonstochastic (DEA) production function approaches. The empirical application uses farm-level data from four counties in west Texas. While ...
Predicting Lint Cleaner Efficiency ans Fiver Quality Characterisitics in Cotton Ginning
(American Society of Agricultural Engineers, 2002)
This study updates nine lint cleaner and fiber quality relationships (non-lint content, lint cleaner efficiency, fiber strength, micronaire reading, fibergraph length, uniformity ratio, percentage of lint in gin waste, ...
Effects of Quality Considerations and Climate/Weather Information on the Management and Profitability of Cotton Production in the Texas High Plains
(Southern Agricultural Economics Association, 2002-12)
Production function models for cotton lint yields, seed yields, turnout, and lint quality characteristics are developed for the Texas High Plains. They art: used to evaluate the impacts of quality considerations and of ...
State-Space Description of Field Heterogenity: Water and Nitrogen Use in Cotton
(The Soil Science Society of America, 2002)
Field heterogeneity in soil texture and site elevation (SE) may affect crop water and N use. A 2yr (1998-1999) study was conducted on the Texas High Plains to determine the interdependence between management (irrigation ...

Profitability of Short Season Cotton Genotyoes in the High Plains of Texas
(Agriculture Consortium of Texas, 2002)
The short growing season, dry climate, and limited precipitation reduce the yield and quality of cotton grown on the High Plains of Texas. As irrigation water levels decline in the southern counties of the High Plains of ...
