What makes one county's agricultural sector perform better than
another's?  In other words, what are the components of net farm income
and what production portfolios (crops, livestock, ect.) have been
shown to yield higher net farm incomes?

Clarification of Question by bwanaphil-ga on 20 Jun 2005 09:03 PDT
Basically I am wondering if there has been any good research out there
on what factors influence the profitability of agricultural
operations.  Specificially I am interested in county level studies on
the United States, but any research on what factors make some
agricultural operations more profitable than others would be helpful. 
For example, does croping mix have a strong influence? Does urban
proximity make a differce? These are the types of questions I am
interested in.  Thanks.
