1. Lin, Shanshan. Farm-level risk management using irrigation and weather derivatives.

Degree: MS, Environmental Economics, 2008, University of Georgia

This thesis presents an analysis of the role of irrigation in farm-level risk management and the effectiveness of water pricing policies and weather derivatives in reducing water use for corn, cotton, peanut, and tomato productions in Mitchell, Miller, and Lee Counties in Georgia. Water resources in Georgia are under increasing pressure from human activity, highlighting the value of efficient management of irrigation water. It is expected that certain policies can effectively reduce irrigation water use. Two conclusions developed from the findings of this study. First, the optimal irrigation strategy can greatly increase producers Certainty Equivalent Revenue, and recent changes in water pricing policies would only have a limited impact on the amount of water used for crop production in this region. Second, across levels of risk preference, the contracts are found to increase Certainty Equivalent Revenue and reduce accumulative water use when compared to a base scenario without weather derivative contracts. Advisors/Committee Members: Jeffrey D. Mullen.

2. Bekchanov, Ulugbek. Economic analysis of Georgia State broiler litter transportation.

Degree: MS, Agricultural Economics, 2008, University of Georgia

The profitability of using broiler litter as a source of crop nutrients was calculated using phosphorus based poultry litter application. A cost-minimizing phosphorus-consistent transportation model developed to meet the nutrient needs of 142 application counties in Georgia revealed that not all of the litter can be utilized in the state. The analysis indicates that a ton of litter can cost effectively be transported up to 151 miles from the production facility. The total cost increased when transportation of the litter out of the heavily surplus counties was equivalent to complete litter disposal from the originating region. Total litter use was minimally affected by changes in chemical fertilizer prices. Shadow prices indicated the robustness of the model. Advisors/Committee Members: Jeffrey D. Mullen.

3. Beckhusen, Julia Bowman. A modern application of Hedonics: estimating the value of irrigation permits in Sumter and Lee county, Georgia.

Degree: MS, Environmental Economics, 2006, University of Georgia

A Hedonic analysis is used to estimate the value of irrigation permits to agricultural land in the Flint River Basin, Georgia. A moratorium was established in the end of 1999 that prohibited the issuance of new irrigation withdrawal permits. The moratorium created scarcity both with respect to the total number of permits available and to the total amount of irrigation water available for withdrawal. Agricultural land sales taking place both before and after the moratorium are evaluated using the hedonic method. Results suggest that permitted agricultural land sold after the moratorium was sold for 1,535 more per acre more in Lee County and 868 more per acre in Sumter County.
