  • About the Edition

    The economic well-being of most U.S. farm households depends on income from both onfarm and off-farm activities. Consequently, for many farm households, economic decisions (including technology adoption and other production decisions) are likely to be shaped by the allocation of managerial time among such activities. While time allocation decisions are usually not measured directly, we observe the outcomes of such decisions, such as onfarm and off-farm income. This report finds that a farm operator"s off-farm employment and off-farm income vary inversely with the size of the farm. Operators of smaller farm operations improve their economic performance by compensating for the scale disadvantages of their farm business with more off-farm involvement. Off-farm work reduces farm-level technical efficiency, but increases household-level technical efficiency. And adoption of agricultural innovations that save managerial time is associated with higher off-farm income.

Internet adoption and usage may be increased, as Farm Service Agency, off-farm income, farm financial performance (net farm income and gross cash income), total variable costs (VC), marketing and storage. Agriculture reports that off-farm income of farm households increased percent between and It also reports that off-farm income was 6 times that of cash farm income in (USDA, a). Many studies have focused on the off-farm labor supply of farmers or farm families and addressed a variety of issues. Most of these studies have File Size: KB.

    Furthermore, off-farm income and distance of farm to homestead were statistically significant but negatively correlated with the CSA level of adoption. This paper argues that climate change-related education through improved extension contact and exposure to mass media can strengthen integrated farm activities that bolster farm by: 1.   The regression model hypothesis stating the positive impact of agricultural technology adoption on farm income is accepted at 5% significance level. Household income was found to be determined positively by gender (given male headed households do have a better farm income), land size, access to credit, membership to an association and TLU.

    In this episode of the Off-Farm Income Podcast I get to give you a 2 for 1! I’ve got a great story of farming success while adapting to changing population demographics. I’ve also got a great story about taking the negatives of the Coronavirus and turning them into a positive. This article explores the effect of off‐farm income on agricultural production activities, using data from the Mexico National Rural Household Survey. We first discuss the theoretical conditions under which access to off‐farm income may influence production in an agricultural household by:

Consequently, for many farm households, economic decisions (including technology adoption and other production decisions) are likely to be shaped by the allocation of managerial time among such activities.

Assuming stable off-farm income levels from tothis translates to a 40–50% increase in farm household repayment capacity given a median level of off-farm income over farm income alone. This improvement in repayment capacity is proportionally greater for smaller operations in which farming is the operator’s primary occupation.

Off‐farm work participation (Off‐farm) positively significantly influences crop revenue, implying possible income effect of off‐farm work participation on farm output. The effect of other variables on the skewness or downside risk exposure by climate‐smart practice is reported in Table A4 in the Appendix 1 -2.

In agricultural-dependent economies, extension programmes have been the main conduit for disseminating information on farm technologies, support rural adult learning and assist farmers in developing their farm technical and managerial skills.

It is expected that extension programmes will help increase farm productivity, farm revenue, reduce poverty and minimize food by: 2.
