@qu:...My overall impression from this Handbook is that agricultural economics research is relatively dynamic, high-quality, wide-ranging and policy-relevant. The chapters summarised here not only highlight the main issues addressed and methodologies used by agricultural economists but also identify the benchmarks for high-quality research in these areas. @source:Journal of Agricultural Economics
