The results indicate that respondents using devices with large screens are more confident of their responses, dedicate more time to the valuation exercise, and select the status quo option less frequently. However, WTP for agritourism and perceived choice experiment complexity are invariant with regards to the device. Respondents’ WTP for selected agritourism activities varies from $5 to $21 per visit.</p> 2024-06-28T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Héctor Tavárez, Mildred Cortés A strategy to increase lamb meat consumption from a relationship marketing perspective 2023-11-13T10:50:48+01:00 María Teresa Maza Keyla Alvarez Pilar Uldemolins <p>A group of restaurants created a club around a lamb meat product to improve its promotion and achieve customers’ commitment and satisfaction. The objective is to analyse the relationship between the restaurateurs and the final consumer (B2C). A structured questionnaire survey was used to collect the data. Consumers like promotional activities, but their participation is rather low depending on age. From the structural equation model, it was determined that customer satisfaction has a high influence on customer commitment to the establishment; however, promotion and recognition have a very low influence on customer satisfaction and commitment.</p> 2024-06-28T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2024 María Teresa Maza, Keyla Alvarez, Pilar Uldemolins Design of instruments for modeling economic and commercial behavior in bovine production 2024-01-31T10:21:10+01:00 Franco Alexis Ghiglione Santiago Ferro Moreno <p>Agricultural companies base their decisions on the anticipated behavior of variables. This paper aims to analyze and model the behavior of livestock producers in relation to the adoption of marketing strategies in uncertain scenarios. Through structured questionnaires administered to cattle producers, stated preference models were developed for various strata, taking into account the number of animals. An inverse relationship was observed between income, derived from higher cattle stocks, and hypothetical and real choices of the direct marketing channel. Among the conventional variables, it was confirmed that beef cattle producers prioritize harvesting time over selling price and marketing cost.</p> 2024-06-28T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Franco Alexis Ghiglione, Santiago Ferro Moreno Transmission of climate shocks to livestock prices in regulated and unregulated markets: Evidence for raw milk in Colombian tropical livestock 2024-02-06T09:23:23+01:00 Andres Mauricio Vargas Pérez José Luis Ramos Ruiz Sadan Alexander De la Cruz Almanza <p>This research investigates the impact of climate variability on the price trend of raw milk in Colombia, which is traded in regulated and unregulated markets. The findings indicate that climate variations do not affect the regulated price, whereas the unregulated market shows an asymmetric price response. The price increase is more significant than a favorable event in an adverse shock, such as a drought. This may clarify why small-scale producers tend to favor this market despite receiving lower prices on average for their raw milk.</p> 2024-06-28T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Andres Mauricio Vargas Pérez, José Luis Ramos Ruiz, Sadan Alexander De la Cruz Almanza Evaluation of the impact on the productivity of coffee and cocoa crops with agroforestry systems in the departments of Amazonas and San Martín, Perú 2024-01-08T12:15:04+01:00 Wagner Guzmán Castillo Carlos Enrique Orihuela Felipe Vásquez-Lavín Luis Alberto Arévalo López <p>There is no clarity about the impact on the productivity of various agricultural crops with Agroforestry Systems (SAF). The study aimed to quantify the change in the productivity of coffee and cocoa crops on farms with and without agroforestry systems in the Peruvian Amazon. To do this, we use the propensity score matching methodology. The results show an increase in productivity for crops with cocoa, but a decrease in crops with coffee. We conclude that it is worth generating information and studies to propose SAF compatible with improvements in productivity through joint actions between actors.</p> 2024-06-28T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Wagner Guzmán Castillo, Carlos Enrique Orihuela, Felipe Vásquez-Lavín, Luis Alberto Arévalo López Including the change in natural capital stock and environmental degradation in Peruvian mining GDP and NNP 2024-02-08T09:53:13+01:00 Carlos Enrique Orihuela Victor Carlos Michel Chumpitaz Añi José Yasser Dávila García <p>This study adjusts the net national product (NNP) and gross domestic product (GDP) of the Peruvian mining sector by incorporating natural capital depreciation, new discoveries, and environmental degradation during the period 1994–2018. The results suggest that NNP has been <br />overestimated, on average, by 172 % to 210 %, which is attributed to the omission of natural depreciation. When GDP was corrected, the overestimation fluctuated between 64 % and 72 %. This underscores the importance of including natural capital depreciation, especially in countries whose economy is highly dependent on extractive industries, as is the case of Peru.</p> 2024-06-28T00:00:00+02:00 Copyright (c) 2024 Carlos Enrique Orihuela, Victor Carlos Michel Chumpitaz Añi, José Yasser Dávila García
