    The farm real estate market is different from commodity markets because land has unique characteristics such as durability and immobility. Moreover, the heterogeneity of land and relatively low activity of land transactions limits the availability of pricing information for specific properties. Because land is the primary asset and the least liquid of any farm company, its valuation plays an important role in financial analysis. The purpose of this paper is to compare different approaches to estimate the value of land.

    Multicrop farmers must choose variable input levels and land quantity for each crop. Economic researchers to date have analyzed these two decisions separately, either finding the best land use, given crop technologies, or solving for optimal input levels, ignoring the allocation of land. We show that both these approaches lead to suboptimal decision rules under risk aversion.

Significant differences also occurred between the various commodity program crops, reflecting the difference in benefits available for these crops.

    This report reviews the recurring costs situation for irrigation in Asia. These are the costs associated with project operation and maintenance (O&M). As is well documented in the literature many developing countries have neglected project O&M which has resulted in a rapid depreciation of past irrigation investments (Carruthers, 1981). Irrigation systems fail to irrigate their planned or projected command areas and after a few years parts of the systems no longer function (Wade, 1975).
