(Hebrew). Off-farm work and capital accumulation decisions of farmers over the life-cycle: the role of heterogeneity and state dependence. Both state dependence and heterogeneity lead to the same conclusion, that off-farm labor supply and farm capital are negatively associated. However, the heterogeneity model implies that farmers at the higher end of the ability distribution are able to both work off the farm and maintain a capitalintensive farm enterprise.

We estimate jointly three types of discrete-choice labor decisions of farm couples: farm work, off-farm work, and hired farm labor. Using a choice multinomial logit model, we find that operators' and spouses' farm labor are substitutes. Hired farm labor increases with farmers' qualifications, perhaps substituting for the couples' labor inputs.

An intertemporal model in which farm capital accumulation and work choices by a single‐agent farm household are interdependent is developed and tested using a farm‐level data set.

Estimation is done using a recursive two‐step simultaneous censored equations model. The results of this study are of relevance for an understanding of structural change within the agricultural sector as they Cited by: By Over The Life-Cycle, Avner Ahituv and Ayal Kimhi Abstract This paper aims to construct an empirical model for the analysis of two principal simultaneous decisions of farm operators: participation in the off-farm labor market, and the amount of resources to invest in farm capital.

Self-employment was the dominant (%) off-farm work. Full-time participants were mainly (%) in non-agricultural wage employment. Participants with off-farm work experience of 14–19 years were mostly (%) in self-employment, while % of the farmers with off-farm work experience of 26–33 years were in agricultural wage.

Space, Government Payments, and Off-Farm Labor Response of Principal Farm Operators: A County-Level. Offfarm work implies that the farmer allocates his endowed time among farm work, market, and leisure hours. Hence, off-farm work is seen to divert critical resources away from the farm sector.

The measure will, also, keep small-scale farmers back on the farm to sustain food production for the populace. References Ahituv, A. & Kimhi, A. Off-farm work and capital accumulation decisions of farmers over the life- cycle: The role of heterogeneity and state dependence.

Our findings suggest that off farm income reliance is associated with a farm asset disinvestment strategy, that there is rigidity in off farm income reliance, and that factors explaining farm capital growth indirectly affect the off farm reliance.

The purpose of this article is to examine the patterns of time allocation between farming and off-farm activities in Israeli family farms with a particular emphCited by: Two huge reasons modern farming methods require so much capital are because of unlimited want and the abolishment of slave labor.

Before the civil war, a farmer would have produced their crop using slave labor, reducing the amount of money they needed to start. Not surprisingly, off-farm work is most common among young farmers who’ve yet to find their financial footing: About 80% of principal producers under 35 hold other jobs.

But it is important. In a volatile industry like farming where you have very little control over the major factors that control your revenue, weather and futures markets, working capital is.

This paper investigates China’s agricultural households and their individual members’ off-farm labor supply decision in response to farm production risks and a number of other factors (e.g., demographic characteristics, farm characteristics, and local market features).

Whether and to what extent farming risks may affect farmers’ off-farm employment in China are rarely by: 1. Farmers receive good prices and reliable access to markets. Traders build relationships as trusted providers, thereby growing their businesses.

Work is the next venue for human capital accumulation after school. Poorer economies have much to do because they lag behind advanced economies in the returns to work. A “working capital to gross revenue ratio” of 30 percent or higher for crop farms, and 20 percent or higher for livestock farms, would be considered as fairly strong.

If the ratio drops below 10 percent, it is usually an indicator of some financial stress in the farm business, which may require some financial restructuring.

Ahituv and Kimhi () explored this topic in the context of agricultural investments and off-farm work. They found that the capital accumulation of farmers in Israel tends to follow an inverted U-curve over the life-cycle.
