A growing concern for environmental quality and resource scarcity has led to numerous policy debates regarding resource utilization around the world. This is especially true when it comes to agriculture. This textbook brings together economic theory and resource-specific problems of agriculture, and includes aggregate- and micro-level models and examples for most resource and environmental issues. Although the book's emphasis is on cropland agriculture, there are also examples from livestock, poultry, grazing, fisheries, orchards, and forestry. Students and professionals in resource economics, management, and policy as well as economists and planners in government agencies will benefit from the valuable lessons presented here.

Industry Reviews

"A good book for a graduate student text, and excellent for reference!"--Loren Parks, California State University "Very good coverage of agricultural resource economics. Remarkable how the text reads as if a single author wrote the entire text. Job well done!"--Bruce Lindsay, University of New Hampshire "A much needed book for an increasingly important area. The text bridges theory with application and will be an important reference for those developing policy analysis."--Jerome Siebert, University of California-Berkeley "An excellent collection of articles on Environmental Resource Economics relating to agriculture. It would be good for a senior or graduate course in Resource Economic, Environmental Economics or Economic Development."--N. Omri Rawlins, Middle Tennessee State University "Excellent book! Will use as reference for research and teaching."--C.R. Shumuray, Texas A&M University "Written by fourteen outstanding authors with practical and scientific experiences in resource economics. Topics are presented in a logical sequence built around key concepts and models. This text will make a positive contribution to the profession."--Edwin Lamberth, Tennessee Technological University "This book will be most useful as a source of material on environmental and resource economics in the classroom and as a textbook for beginning graduate students. In essence, the book can be highly recommended to all policy analysts, researchers, and practitioners interested in agricultural resource economics irrespective of their background knowledge in this field." --European Review of Agricultural Economics "I like it!"--Lydia Zepeda, University of Wisconsin
