Effects of Alternative Farm Programs and Levels of Price Variability on Texas Cotton Farms Academic Article uri icon


  • AbstractThis study examines the effects of alternative government farm programs and hypothetical price variability levels on two Texas cotton farms which were simulated stochastically over a 10-year period. Results indicate that a combination of high price variability and participation in government programs stimulates growth and wealth accumulation.
