Abstract or Summary
  • The recent 2013 Oregon State Board of Agriculture report identified several ways to improve agricultural income in Oregon. Recommendations to improve water development are at the top of the report's list of objectives. In this study, I analyze the relationship between net cash farm income (NCFI) and a cross-sectional set of climate, production, and water policy variables for an eleven western state region and a four-state subset representing the Pacific Northwest region. County-level farm data from 2007 are used. The results indicate that agricultural water use and policy strongly influence county NCFI. Contributions to income from climate and production characteristics are also considerable but differ depending on the study region. Although the results confirm the positive relationship between NCFI and water development, new projects face a difficult regulatory environment and uncertain access to water.
