Agriculture


Please ask James for more information on the component and Naresh for more information on the statistical model.


The Agricultural model determines the yield and production, as well as the costs of cultivation, for theagricultural products. The list (and order!) of crops is defined in world.jl:


In [1]:
crops = ["alfalfa", "otherhay", "Barley", "Barley.Winter", "Maize", "Sorghum", "Soybeans", "Wheat", "Wheat.Winter"]


Out[1]:
9-element Array{ASCIIString,1}:
 "alfalfa"      
 "otherhay"     
 "Barley"       
 "Barley.Winter"
 "Maize"        
 "Sorghum"      
 "Soybeans"     
 "Wheat"        
 "Wheat.Winter" 

Yields are estimated using a linear expression: $$log y_i = \cdots$$

The information for agricultural production comes from quickstats.
