Economic and environmental benefits from growing winter wheat in the Prairie Provinces: a bioeconomic approachDownload
Winter wheat fields provide upland nesting habitat for migrating birds. Duck nests built in winter wheat croplands experience lower probabilities of nest mortality due to farming practices compared to nests built in spring wheat croplands. Two dynamic optimization models are specified in order to...
This research project estimated economic costs and benefits of winter wheat production in the Canadian Prairies at a farm level. A combination of Net Present Value analysis and Monte Carlo simulation was used to build cash flow farm models by province and soil zone. The objective of this study...
This research project gauges producer demand on the Canadian Prairies for the attributes of new hypothetical varieties of winter wheat. Data collected from a survey of producers in Western Canada is used to determine the values and attitudes of producers regarding new winter wheat variety traits...
