"The Potential Global Distribution of Chilo partellus, Including Consideration of Irrigation and Cropping Patterns"

Publication Date: August, 2016

Chilo partellus is a major crop pest in Asia and Africa, and has recently spread to the Mediterranean region. Knowledge of its potential distribution can inform biosecurity policies aimed at limiting its further spread and efforts to reduce its impact in areas that are already invaded.

The Landscape of Farming: An Exploration of Spatial Bio-Economic Characterization Approaches

Publication Date: November, 2015

This dissertation consists of three inter-related but standalone papers focused on the theme of measuring the spatial, bio-economic attributes of production agriculture.

Global High-Resolution Soil Profile Database for Crop Modeling Applications

Publication Date: October, 2015

One of the obstacles in applying advanced crop simulation models such as DSSAT at a grid-based platform is the lack of gridded soil input data at various resolutions.

Long-run and Global R&D Funding Trajectories: The U.S. Farm Bill in a Changing Context

Publication Date: October, 2015

We present new evidence that today's middle-income countries—notably China, Brazil, and India— are not only growing in relative importance as producers of agricultural innovations through investments in public R&D, they are also gaining considerable ground in terms of their share of privately performed research of relevance for agriculture.

Research Investment Implications of Shifts in the Global Geography of Wheat Stripe Rust

Publication Date: October, 2015

Comparing the cost of developing stripe-rust-resistant varieties of wheat with the cost of stripe-rust-induced yield losses, we estimate that a sustained annual research investment of at least US$32 million into stripe rust resistance is economically justified.
