Current Research

General responsibilities include conducting applied research and extension economics in the areas of farm management, agricultural policy, and production economics for cotton, rice, and sugarcane crops produced in Louisiana. The principle focus of the research is to provide agricultural producers in Louisiana with detailed reports, including web-based business decision tools, which emphasize economic aspects of farm budgeting along with management strategies on a commodity specific basis. These duties include but are not limited to: co-authoring annual projected enterprise cost and return budgets; evaluating farm bill provisions and commodity programs; and crop insurance products afforded to producers.
