Analysis of Irrigated Corn Production Adoption Decisions in Alabama

  • Novak, James L.
  • Nadolnyak, Denis A.
  • McNider, Richard
Registered author(s):

    Expanding ethanol markets, abundance of water resources, and predominance of rainfed corn production in Alabama suggest possibility of irrigating cornfields. Numerical analysis shows that irrigated production becomes more preferable with higher corn prices and risk aversion. Adoption threshold is estimated at the price below its current level.
