Optimizing Nitrogen Use in Cotton Production
(The Society for Computer Simulation, 1989)
This paper presents a dynamic optimization model used to derive nitrogen fertilizer optimal decision rules for irrigated cotton production in the Southern High Plains of Texas. Components of the dynamic optimization model ...
The Production Response of a Cotton/Grain Farm to the Elimination of Commodity Support Programs
(National Cotton Council of America, 1992)
The Production response of a farm in the High Plains of Texas to the elimination of support programs for certain agricultural commodities in the Unites States is estimated using duality theory. Linear programming methods ...
Evaluation of Conservation Tillage Cropping Systems for Cotton on the Texas Southern High Plains of Texas
(American Society of Agronomy, Inc., 1989-09)
SOPHISTICATED IRRIGATION TECHNOLOGY AND BIOTECHNOLOGY ADOPTION: IMPACTS ON GROUND WATER CONSERVATION
(AgBio Forum, 1999-11-02)
A county-wide dynamic optimization model is used to evaluate the potential contributions associated with the adoption of sophisticated irrigation system technology and anticipated biotechnological advances in crop production ...
Multidimensional Quality Attributes and Input in Cotton
This paper uses an ordered logit model to examine the relationship between lint attributes and water and nitrogen inputs in cotton production. The ordered logit model is used because lint attributes are valued by grade and ...
Nitrogen Carry-over Impacts in Irrigated Cotton Production, Southern High Plains of Texas
(Western Agricultural Economics Association, 1989-12)
A dynamic optimization model which introduces an intertemporal nitrate-nitrogen residual function is used to derive and evaluate nitrogen fertilizer optimal decision rules for irrigated cotton production in the Southern ...
Maintaining Soil Productivity in Irrigated Cotton Production in the Texas High Plains
The retention of soil productivity is a genuine facet of sustainable agriculture and an essential issue for producers and land owners. The objective of this study was to evaluate the sensitivity of the optimal decision ...
Economic Feasibility of Feedlot Manure Utilization in Cotton Production: An Application to the Texas High Plains
This research represents the first attempt to identify the economically feasible transportation distance for feedlot manure utilization in the Texas High Plains (THP). This analysis incorporates the residual benefits from ...
An Evaluation of Post Conservation Reserve Program Alternatives In The Texas High Plains
(Southern Agricultural Economics Association, 1995-12)
Four policy alternatives for CRP lands upon expiration of the current contracts in Hale county, Texas are evaluated using chance-constrained programming. It was found that if CRP contracts are extended at the current average ...
Low Energy Precision Application Irrigation for Cotton Production in the Texas Southern High Plains
(Agriculture Consortium of Texas, 1990)
In this study the farm level economic feasibility of converting a center pivot low-pressure irrigation system to a low-energy precision application (LEPA) irrigation system for cotton production in the Southern High Plains ...
