The Impact of Nutrient Management Regulations on New York Farmland Values

Jennifer Ifft

Cornell University, United States of America

Livestock farms often comply with manure management policies by increasing their land holdings. We estimate the impact of nutrient management regulations on New York farmland values, using a comprehensive, spatially-explicit dataset of farmland transactions from 2004-2013. We find that sales near the most-regulated or largest dairy farms are associated with an increase in price that is similar to urban development pressure, even after accounting for animal density. These results are consistent with reports that other farms cannot compete in farmland markets near large dairies. Environmental policies that implicitly increase demand for farmland may have implications for farmland access and affordability.


Agricultural Productivity: Distortions, Land Markets, and Geography

Tasso Adamopoulos

York University, Canada

This research examines the possible sources of differences in agricultural productivity across developed and developing countries.

Using rich micro-geography data, and detailed micro-economic data at the household level I quantify the importance of two sets of factors for agricultural productivity:

(a) the inherent land quality and geographic differences across space, and

(b) farm size and farm-level distortions that restrict the operational scale of farms, and misallocate resources within agriculture.

I examine the allocative efficiency effects of particular land market institutions and their broader consequences for agricultural productivity.
