SEQUENTIAL INVESTMENT IN SITE-SPECIFIC CROP MANAGEMENT UNDER OUTPUT PRICE UNCERTAINTY: IMPLICATIONS FOR NITROGEN POLLUTION CONTROL

Murat Isik, Madhu Khanna and Alex Winter-Nelson

No 21875, 2000 Annual meeting, July 30-August 2, Tampa, FL from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: This paper develops an option value model to examine the extent to which output price uncertainty creates incentives to adopt two interrelated components of site-specific technologies sequentially. It analyzes how the impact of uncertainty on the sequential adoption decision differs across heterogeneous soil conditions, and examines the implications of adoption for nitrogen pollution generation and for the design of a cost-share subsidy policy.
