Abstract

We estimate the effect of lifting the fruit and vegetable cropping restriction on cropping preference in the Lower Rio Grande Valley, using a stochastic simulation model and Stochastic Efficiency analysis. Results suggest that, based on risk-adjusted net returns, lifting the cropping restriction may likely have the most profound effect on watermelon and cabbage acreage.
