This report presents basis estimates for long grain rough rice in Southwest Louisiana for each of six marketing years from 1991-92 through 1996-97. The primary goal of this study is to enhance the understanding of basis movements in Southwest Louisiana, thereby increasing the likelihood that sound marketing decisions will be made by market participants.
An Analysis of Buyer Preferences for New Food Products Derived from Louisiana's Undersized Crawfish (Bulletin #864)
Aylin Özayan, R. Wes Harrison, and Samuel P. Meyers
The objective of this study was to investigate the market potential for minced meat products derived from Louisiana’s undersized crawfish. Specific objectives were to: (1) identify potential markets for crawfish mince-based products and the product attributes needed for market acceptance; and (2) estimate potential buyer preferences for food-grade products derived from undersized crawfish minced meat.
Seasonal Abudance of Arthropod Populations on Selected Soybean Variteties Grown in Early Season Production Systems in Louisiana (Bulletin #860)
Michael L. Boyd, David J. Boethel, B. Rogers Leonard, Robert J. Habetz, Lester P. Brown, and William B. Hallmark
The data presented in this report were collected by entomologists to provide Louisiana soybean producers with information on insect management practices that may be required as they select the soybean maturity group that best fits their production systems.
A Comparison of the Size and Location of Agribusiness Industries for Louisiana and Its Parishes: 1982-1992 (Bulletin #858)
David W. Hughes and R. Wes Harrison
The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of changes in the size and location of agribusiness firms for parish economies in Louisiana from 1982 to 1992.

The measurement of economic, locational and topographic variables hypothesized to influence rural land values is expected to be useful in managing Louisiana's land resource. This report presents estimates of the effects of various rural real estate characteristics on the value of rural real estate.
W. R. McClain, P. K. Bollich, and J. M. Gillespie
This study was designed to examine the biological and economic efficacy of relaying crawfish into a growing rice crop in an intercropping manner.

Georgia-5 tall fescue was developed for use as a permanent, cool-season pasture grass on the Coastal Plain. The results of two field plot experiments and observations from additional small-plot plantings and 40 acres of pasture for grazing experiments at the Rosepine Research Station provide the basis for this discussion of Georgia-5 tall fescue establishment.

Reducing the amounts of dissolved substances in surface and ground water is of major concern nationally and within the agricultural community. The primary focus of this study was to investigate the fate of azinphosmethyl (Guthion®) in sugarcane canopy, soil and runoff water.

A revised hybrid IMPLAN model of the Louisiana economy, based on its structure in 1985, was used to estimate the impact of agricultural exports on the state economy. This publication includes the results of the model, which should be useful to state policy makers and others concerned about the ability of foreign markets to generate economic activity in Louisiana.
Measuring Rural-Urban Economic Linkages in the Monroe Louisiana Trading Area Through a Multiregional Input-Output Model (Bulletin #856)
David W. Hughes and Vaneska N. Litz
This study integrates regional economic theory with empirical analysis through the construction of an interregional core-periphery input-output (I-O) model of the 10- parish Monroe, Louisiana, Functional Economic Area economy. The model is used to estimate trade relationships and resulting economic linkages between the core and periphery economies.
Measuring the Effect of Louisiana Agriculture on the State Economy Through Multiplier and Impact Analysis (Bulletin #849)
David W. Hughes
Multipliers derived from any input-output model are upper bound estimates of the potential economic activity generated by a particular sector of an economy. The model presented in this publication can serve as a device for evaluating the effects of a particular policy, such as a particular change in agricultural environmental regulations, on general economic activity in Louisiana.
Movement of Atrazine and Nitrate in Sharkey Clay Soil: Evidence of Preferential Flow (Bulletin #846)
D. C. Johnson, H. M. Selim, L. Ma, L. M. Southwick, and G. H. Willis
Incidence of groundwater contamination by agrichemicals in the United States and elsewhere is of concern in terms of the health effects associated with chemical contaminants present in drinking water. The major objectives of this study were: (1) to quantify the mobility of atrazine and nitrates in a Sharkey clay soil in the presence of a shallow water table, and (2) to determine evidence of preferential flow patterns on the mobility of agricultural chemicals in such soils.

Gibberellic acid (GA3) was the first naturally occurring plant growth regulator (PGR) labeled for use on rice in the United States. GA3 is now profoundly influencing rice production in the southern United States. This bulletin describes the cultural and varietal problems related to emergence that needed to be addressed and provides the step-by-step approach leading to the use of GA3 as a seed treatment.

Waterfowl-related activities generate millions of dollars for Louisiana’s economy annually, with duck and goose hunting as one of the most significant sporting activities. Economic information on the characteristics that influence the decision to hunt waterfowl can provide valuable information to resource managers faced with declining waterfowl populations as well as declining numbers of waterfowl hunters.

Fresh-market cucumber has been an important vegetable crop in Southern states for many years. The objectives of these studies were: 1) to determine the influence of staking on yield, fruit quality and related traits of cucumbers; 2) to develop improved cultural techniques to enhance the yield of staked cucumbers; and 3) to minimize the expense of training the plants vertically.

Cypress is a high-yielding, early-maturing, semidwarf, long-grain rice variety with excellent grain quality. This bulletin includes information on the history, characteristics, cultural management and pest reaction of Cypress.
Richard L. Parish, Regina P. Bracy, and Paul E. Bergeron
The objectives of this bulletin are to present a summary of research on precision cultural practices by the LSU AgCenter, to explain and discuss the advantages of these cultural practices, and to recommend practices that should help commercial vegetable growers.
