Workshop: Contemporary Issues in Agricultural Economics

The workshop provides an opportunity to broaden knowledge about climatic and economic drivers of agricultural area loss along with factors affecting synchronization of global commodity prices. During the workshop, the methodology for calculating the area loss function and a yield function, which show the direct effects at harvest time and indirect effects through yield on the area loss ratio, will be presented. Moreover, important indirect impacts of climate and land quality and quantity on the area loss ratios of all the crops will be introduced and discussed.
In addition, the application of concordance index in respect to the development of 15 global commodity price indices will be presented to explain consequences of supply chains’ disruptions resulted in increased price synchronization (in both direction and magnitude) of grain, energy, and fertilizer prices at the global level.
