Article
This study employs the per capita number of mobile internet users as a proxy for search costs to examine the potential impact of new information technologies on cost pass-through on the Iranian poultry market. We find that the per capita number of mobile internet users in space and time leads to lower prices and a higher cost pass-through. Deviatio...

This paper investigates the potential effects of trade restrictions and alternative tariff policies, including a tariff wedge between feed and final products on the Ghanaian poultry producers. We apply a hybrid approach that uses qualitative results of a Delphi study to define scenarios for a modified global general equilibrium model. The projected...
Article
This paper presents empirical evidence of the potential impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the price structure and dynamics within two food value chains. Different proxies are applied to high-frequency panel data of beef and poultry prices in Iran. Results show that during the COVID-19 pandemic increased markups are associated with reduced cost pas...

Understanding market integration has greatly benefited from analysing and comparing variations in price transmissions. An important source of variation in agricultural markets is seasonal changes in production, consumption and transaction costs. A key factor driving seasonality in agricultural price is temperature, as supply and demand changes are...
Thesis
The main purpose of this study is to investigate the trend of energy consumption and CO2 emissions in different scenarios of economic growth in Iran and has the following sub-objectives: 1- Estimating the relationship between economic growth and energy consumption 2- Estimating the relationship between energy consumption and carbon dioxide emission...

This study extends the literature by analyzing the effects of energy sanctions on the black-market premium on the Iranian Rial – U.S. dollar exchange rate. Using a nonlinear autoregressive distributed lag (NARDL) model from 1959to 2017, we find that falling oil revenues as a result of sanctions have an increasing impact on the black-market premium.

Article
Full-text available
Water pricing and reducing the costs of the implementation and maintenance of irrigation systems have been a challenging topic for a long time. Water pricing issues combine two complex dimensions. The first dimension is the economy of the farm and its association with the broader economic system and farming practices. The second dimension is the hy...
Article
Understanding the dynamic of land use/land cover (LULC) can assist relevant authorities in implementing them along with management options for natural forests like Desa'a forest in Northern Ethiopia. It is worth mentioning that no comprehensive study has been done so far on the overall change of LULC within the surrounding of Desa'a forest areas. T...
Conference Paper
Providing real-time information, the worldwide web has substantially evolved in the developing world. Customers from developing and developed countries usually use search machines such as Google prior to making purchase decisions to evaluate prices and other information. First studies published the positive impact of using the WWW on search cost an...
Chapter
The integrated management of water and land resources in the Zayandeh Rud basin is facing many challenges aggravated by large fluctuations in the annual rainfall and the volume of upstream water reservoirs over the last 10–20 years. Severe droughts have led to drastic changes in surface water supply for all stakeholders in the basin, and to an unpr...

Tariff policy along agricultural products supply chain has been always a challenge of policymakers of this sector. In this study, different policy formulations of tariff rate on raw material in upstream chains and processed products in downstream chains were investigated. Due to market integration along the chain, a multi-market partial equilibrium...

s with other regions of Iran, due to excessive extraction of groundwater for intense agricultural activity, Ghorveh plain, a water-scarce irrigation district in the west of Iran, has faced a serious water crisis during the last decade. The present study investigates the impacts of two scenario policies, namely, non-price policy (as a supply-oriente...
Article
The present study investigates alternative scenarios of timing and reduced water supply in terms of their impacts on agricultural land use, farm revenue and food crop production. It aims to evaluate the implications for the development of different farming systems in one of the most water-scarce irrigation districts in the Zayandeh-Rud River Basin...
Article
Achieving a higher level of efficiency is one of the main goals of agricultural cooperatives. However, it is not clear whether the cooperative farms are more efficient than non-cooperative farms. In this line, the present study aims to compare the performance of the cooperative and non-cooperative farms by employing the super-efficiency data envelo...
Article
This study employs traditional holidays in Iran as proxies to analyze the impact of periods of peak demand on cost pass‐through in the poultry market. We use weekly wholesale and retail price data for all 30 provinces of Iran from 2010 to 2016. By panel cointegration techniques, we estimate cost pass‐through elasticities and speed of adjustment dur...
Chapter
An ongoing challenge the water policymakers facing is to allocate water supplies controlled by reservoirs among competing uses. Despite many methodological advances in recent years, there is little agreement on the best method to meet the water demands of competing stakeholders. This study aims to fill that gap by the development of a multi-objecti...
Article
According to the designed objectives for the agricultural sector and its place in developing countries, it seems that planning of multi-goal programming for the same is unavoidable. The current study attempted to use goal programming to determine cropping pattern system in three structures with two priority levels. The data collected by stratified...

Improving water productivity in food production has been a basic global issue, especially in countries with limited water resources like Iran. Due to quantitative and qualitative limitations of water, measurement, and analysis of agricultural water productivity indicators in Iran deserve special attention. Accordingly, in the present study, the phy...
