Assessment of the determinants of dairy farms’ investment

Virginia Namiotko, Irena Kriščiukaitienė

Abstract

Investment is important at the state and company level. Although various authors examine the determinants of farms’ investment, analysis is often limited to one investment theory. Moreover, investment decisions in agriculture don’t always comply with investment theory. Therefore, a systematic approach for evaluating the determinants of farms’ investment is still missing. The aim of this paper is to assess the determinants of dairy farms’ investment. The analysis of scientific literature, comparative analysis and generalization was employed to reveal and classify factors that affect farms’ investment, whereas logistic regression was used to assess determinants that affect dairy farms’ investment.
