A Study Of Factor Input Services In Cache County, Utah, 1969, Terry N. Peterson

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Fertilizer, feed and machinery dealers we re interviewed to obtain the extent of the services which they provided to farmers in Cache County. One machinery dealer provided a service in the form of a rental program while all others provided none. Fertilizer dealers provided spreaders while feed dealers provided only a delivery service.

The Farm Service Division of the Amalgamated Sugar Company was examined as a case study. Budgets for different sizes of beet growers were formulated and compared to evaluate the services provided. It was determined that the farmers in the 0-10 acre category received a net return per ...


Economic Rent Values For Pheasant Hunting In Utah, Braulio Rodriguez V. May 1971

Economic Rent Values For Pheasant Hunting In Utah, Braulio Rodriguez V.

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

A conceptual model relating recreation resource values to the concept of economic rent was developed. The model argues that recreation sites possess both quality and location characteristics which serve as rent producing agents. Sites of better quality extract economic rents relative to those of lesser quality while those located most advantageously to user origins earn location rents relative to those more distantly located. The economic rent values are expressed by the differential use costs and recreationist activity associated with individual site usage.

A methodological procedure was developed which generates estimates of total rent values for a given site. The procedure ...


Estimating Agricultural Production Functions From Experimental Data For Different Crops In Relation To Irrigation, Fertilization And Soil Management In Northern Utah, Subramaniuam Swami Nathan May 1971

Estimating Agricultural Production Functions From Experimental Data For Different Crops In Relation To Irrigation, Fertilization And Soil Management In Northern Utah, Subramaniuam Swami Nathan

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Estimates of agricultural production functions from experimental data for four different crops in relation to six variable inputs are calculated by this study. There are four basic sections in the study. The first section covers the review of production function concepts and the procedures and problems that specifically pertain to this study. Also the importance of joint economic-agronomic research efforts, methodologies and applications of agricultural production functions are cited.

The second section includes the presentation data and postulated functional relationships in estimating production functions. Model building programs are used in developing three dimensional figures, which aid in the selection of ...
