Assessing extension and outreach education levels for biofuel feedstock production in the Western United States

Graciela C. Andrango, Jason S. Bergtold, David Archer, Cornelia Flora
2016 Open Agriculture  
AbstractA growing biofuels industry requires the devel- opment of effective methods to educate farmers, govern- ment, and agribusiness about biofuel feedstock produc- tion if the market is going to significantly expand beyond first generation biofuels. Extension and outreach educa- tion provides a conduit for important research, knowledge and information to be disseminated to producers and agri- business that can utilize the information to help establish biofuel feedstock enterprises and
more » ... . This paper presents the results of a survey administered to extension and outreach agents in 10 western states in the United States to assess the current state of knowledge of exten- sion and outreach agents, their needs regarding feedstock production, and mechanisms used for outreach to their clientele. Results indicate that extension and outreach agents require additional training on biofuel feedstock production, especially economic and logistical aspects. In addition, extension and outreach agents showed a pref- erence for learning using alternative methods, including field days, seminars, face-to-face, community education events, and the internet. Results differ by region and type of extension and outreach agent.

TRUST ME! EXAMINING THE CONTRACTUAL RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN SUGARCANE PRODUCERS AND MILLS IN THE CERRADO

99 RESUMO O aumento na demanda por biocombustíveis aliado às políticas públicas têm promovido a expansão da cana no Cerrado, especialmente em Goiás e Mato Grosso do Sul. As especificidades geográficas, temporais e físicas dos ativos limita a área de onde advem a cana, tornando usinas e produtores dependents uns nos outros. Com isso, contratos são uma prática comum no setor sucroalcoleiro e seu sucesso tem consequências diretas para a sustentabilidade da expansão da cana no Cerrado. Preenchemos,
more » ... neste estudo, a lacuna na literatura sobre a aceitação de contratos e confiança, determinando os fatores que alteram a percepção do produtor quanto ao contrato e quanto à confiança na usina. Usando dados primários de Goiás e Mato Grosso do Sul estimamos modelos logit ordenados usando as percepções e características dos produtores e de seus estabelecimentos. Lucro e tradição foram identificados como importantes para a aceitação de um contrato. Comunicação, transparência e a opinião demais produtores foram importantes fatores no desenvolvimento de confiança na usina. Logo, usinas que querem melhorar suas a aceitação de seus contratos devem se esforçar em participar mais na comunidade local e na melhoria da comunicação com os fazendeiros. ABSTRACT An increase in biofuel demand aligned with public policies has fueled the expansion of sugarcane into Goiás and Mato Grosso do Sul in the Cerrado. Geographic, temporal and physical asset specificities delimit the area from which mills can procure sugarcane, making sugarcane producers and mills dependent on each other. Thus contracting is a common practice in sugarcane production in the Cerrado and its success directly impacts the sustainability of the ethanol expansion. We fill a gap in the literature on producers' contract acceptance and trust by determining the factors that affect contract perception and trust with contractors. Using primary data from the states of Goiás and Mato Grosso do Sul we estimate ordered logit models using producer's perceptions, their characteristics and that of their enterprise. Profits and experience are important factors for a producer when considering a contract. Communication, transparency and other farmer's perception of a mill were important in building trust. Mills wanting to improve their chances of signing a contract should focus on more participation in the community and on better communication with farmers.
