Energy price increase and its impact on agricultural production: evidence from Hawaii

Energy price increase and its impact on agricultural production: evidence from Hawaii

Energy in Agriculture 4(2): 179-188

The impact of energy price increases on the production of three major agricultural crops by small growers on the Big Island of Hawaii is examined with the aid of a linear programming model. The major conclusion is that higher energy costs have not significantly affected the net revenues of small growers. Net revenues appear to be relatively inelastic to the changes in energy costs. The study results also indicate that an increase in energy price does not affect all small growers uniformly.
