On-Farm Factors Influencing Investment In Crop Sowing Machinery

  • Kingwell, Ross S.
Registered author(s):

    Farmers in grain industries make important decisions about investment in crop sowing machinery. This paper shows how some on-farm factors affect profit-maximising levels of investment in crop sowing machinery. The paper examines the effect on optimal investment of discontinuities in sowing opportunities, varietal portfolios and soil portfolios.
