    Abstract: Contract farming (CF) is a pre-output agreement between agricultural producers and buyers. CF helps to integrate farmers in developing countries to global agricultural value chains (Barrett et al. 2012). But research also shows that value chain intermediary agents acquire superior earnings than farmers. This study employs a Bayesian zero-one-inflated beta regression model to analyzes determinants of farmer’s decision to sell zero or some output in CF.

    Abstract: Using a survey of 430 farmer respondents in the Boone and North Raccoon River watersheds in Iowa, we examine the impacts of three program innovations-reverse auctions, spatially targeted payments, and higher offered payments-on agricultural water conservation program efficiency and participation by farmers. We combine farmer responses to a discrete choice experiment offering voluntary conservation contracts with township-level estimates of per-acre nitrogen reductions from each practice derived from the process-based ecohydrological Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) model. Using a random-parameters logit model, we show that both cost-reducing and benefit-boosting interventions reduce costs per projected pound of nitrogen removed from the watershed for each practice and thus are more cost-effective than the prevailing current cost-share programs. However, we find that these interventions can reduce participation by 20%-60%. Furthermore, we find cover crop contracts are far more cost-effective than no-till/strip-till and split N application contracts.

    Abstract: The aim of this report is to analyse recent agricultural policy developments in the countries/territories of the Western Balkans (WBs) and Turkey and their state of harmonisation with the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) of the EU. The report provides both comparative cross-country analyses and a more detailed assessment in the form of country case studies. The report builds on the series of previous work undertaken on a similar issue by providing an update on the recent agricultural policy developments in the region. That is, the report covers the period from 2017 to 2019 in detail, with reference made to changes that took place in the previous decade. The comparative cross-country analyses carried out in this report follow the conceptual framework that defines the key harmonisation principles required to align the agricultural policies of the WBs and Turkey with the EU’s CAP. A quantitative analysis of agricultural policy developments was performed using data on budgetary support for agriculture, systematised according to the unified statistical databases and the Agricultural Policy Measures Classification (APMC) tool, a uniform classification scheme of agricultural budgetary support enabling a comparison of the scope and structure of budgetary support for agriculture between the WBs and Turkey and the EU.

    Abstract: Climate change and the increasing demand of water intensify the global water cycle, altering the distribution of water in space and time. This is expected to result in wet areas getting wetter and dry areas getting drier (Pan et al., 2015). As water is key to life, water scarcity is likely to provoke conflict. Using grid-cell data for Africa and central America over the years of 2002 to 2017, we establish a causal empirical link between the likelihood of local conflict and water mass declines. We measure water mass anomalies based on changes in Earth's gravity field recorded by GRACE and link them to social conflict events recorded in the SCAD data. To account for potential endogeneity in the demand for water, we instrument water mass change by the interaction of the number of drought months per year with yearly global average temperature changes. Our results show that a one standard deviation decrease in local water mass that follows from droughts and an intensifying water cycle more than triple the local likelihood of social conflict. Access to groundwater and surface water helps to mitigate these effects substantially. Water demand factors contribute to a quicker depletion of water mass in case of drought shocks, but do not intensify the link between water decline and conflict itself.

    Abstract: We analyze the link between agricultural productivity growth and fertility, using the oil palm boom in Indonesia as empirical setting. During the time period 1996 to 2016, we find consistently negative effects of the oil palm expansion on fertility. We explain this finding with rising farm profits, that led to consumption growth, the expansion of the non-agricultural sector, increasing returns to education and to higher school nrollment. Together these findings suggest that agricultural productivity growth can play an important role in accelerating the fertility transition, as long as the economic benefits are large enough to translate into local economic development.

    Abstract: Wastewater-fed aquaculture has a long history, especially in Asia. This report examines three empirical cases of integrated wastewater treatment and aquaculture production. From an aquaculture entrepreneur’s perspective, the combination of fish farming and wastewater treatment in common waste stabilization ponds allows significant savings on capital (pond infrastructure) and running costs (wastewater supporting fish feed). On the other hand, the treatment plant owner will have the benefit of a partner taking over plant maintenance. Given the importance of food safety and related perceptions, the report is focusing on innovative business models where the marketed fish is not in direct contact with the treated wastewater, but only the brood stock or fish feed. The financial analysis of the presented systems shows profitable options for the fish farmer, operational and in part capital cost recovery for the treatment plant, and as the treatment plant operators can stop charging households a sanitation fee, eventually a triple-win situation for both partners and the served community.
