Degraded pastures: technical efficiency, stocking rates, pasture allocation and rural credit data

Rafael Feltran-Barbieri & José Gustavo Feres
Degraded pasture is a major liability in Brazilian agriculture, but restoration and recovery efforts could turn this area into a new frontier to both agricultural yield expansion and forest restoration. Currently, rural properties with larger degraded pasture areas are associated with higher levels of technical inefficiency in Brazil. The recovery of 12 million ha of degraded pastures could generate an additional production of 17.7 million bovines while reducing the need for new agricultural land. Regional...

Degraded Pastures in Brasil: dataset used in econometric models

Rafael Feltran-Barbieri & Jose Gustavo Féres
Degraded pasture restoration is the major liability in Brazilian agriculture but could be the main asset. Here we show the technical inefficiency of livestock activity in Brazil is around 19% in which degraded pastures being the main factor of diseconomy of scale. On the other hand, the recovery of 12 million hectares of degraded pastures could generate an additional production of 16.9 million bovines. There is a large regional concentration of degraded pastures, which would...
