dc.description.abstractFarmers' cropping decisions are a product of a complex mix of socio-economic, cultural, and natural environments in which factors operating at a number of different spatial scales affect how farmers ultimately decide to use their land in any given year or over a set of years. Some environmentalists are concerned that increased demand for corn driven by ethanol production is leading to conversion of non-cropland into corn production (which we label as “extensification”). Ethanol industry advocates counter that more than enough corn supply comes from crop switching to corn and increased yields (which we label as “intensification”). In this study, we determine whether either response to corn demand – intensification or extensification – is supported. This is determined through an analysis of land-use/land-cover (LULC) data that covers the state of Kansas and a measure of a corn demand shifter related to ethanol production – distance to the closest ethanol plant – between 2007 and 2009.en_US

Hi, Jay, sorry for the bother, but I should have asked you for a clean "yes" or "no."

Please respond "yes" or "no" to the following statement, for the purposes of our archivists' records:

“You are granting me permission to make available a copy of the accepted manuscript in my institutional repository prior to the end of the embargo. Am I correct?”
