THE VALUE OF SOIL WATER AND WEATHER/INFORMATION IN INCREASING IRRIGATION EFFICIENCY

Darrell Bosch and Vernon Eidman

No 278642, 1985 Annual Meeting, August 4-7, Ames, Iowa from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: Different levels of soil water and weather information are compared to a situation of very limited information. Generalized stochastic dominance is used to generate a value for each level of information for decisionmakers whose coefficients of absolute risk aversion fall within predetermined bounds. Information is found to have a positive value which is subject to diminishing returns and which varies by level of risk aversion.
