Predictive modelling with panel data and multivariate adaptive regression splines: case of farmers crop delivery for a harvest season aheadStochastic Environmental Research and Risk Assessment, 2016Co-Authors: Valeria Borodin, Jean Bourtembourg, Faicel Hnaien, Nacima LabadieAbstract:
This paper investigates a harvest-season level unbalanced panel data (PD) of farmers crop delivery for monitoring the gathering activity and for aiding to support reception and storage decisions making of an Agricultural Cooperative. To achieve these purposes, the fitting and the prediction of the daily farmers crop delivery quantities were realised based-on the total expected quantity of the whole harvest season, the daily volume of precipitation and the amount of sunshine. In order to capture and extrapolate data patterns, both the PD regression and the multivariate adaptive regression approaches were implemented and tested for a real life Agricultural Cooperative case study. The obtained results exhibit an accurate predictive modelling of the farmers crop delivery behaviour for harvest seasons ahead.
An application of the discrete event simulation for efficient crop production supply chain redesign, 2014Co-Authors: Valeria Borodin, Nacima Labadie, Faicel Hnaien, Jean BourtembourgAbstract:
Given the new challenges confronting Agricultural sector, innovative (alternative) production policies need to be devise and design at the farm level. Due to its involved high cost, re-configuring experiments are not easy and circumspect to conduct at this level, a beforehand modelling is required for a scrupulous evaluation of multiple impacts of any eventual alternative re-conguration. In this sense, focused on crop production supply chain encountered at a typical French Agricultural Cooperative, this study investigates an alternative storage policy based-on the pooling of growers and Cooperative resources and efforts during the harvest season. By raising awarenesses on deterministic and stochastic components, a discrete event simulation modellings of the both current and alternative crop supply chain are presented and confronted for an efficient crop streaming from growing fields to long-term storage facilities.
an interval programming approach for an operational transportation planning problemInternational Conference Information Processing, 2014Co-Authors: Valeria Borodin, Jean Bourtembourg, Faicel Hnaien, Nacima LabadieAbstract:
This paper deals with an interval programming approach for an operational transportation problem, arising in a typical Agricultural Cooperative during the crop harvest time. More specifically, an interval programming model with uncertain coefficients occurred in the right-hand side and the objective function is developed for a single-period multi-trip planning of a heterogeneous fleet of vehicles, while satisfying the stochastic seed storage requests, represented as interval numbers. The proposed single-period interval programming model is conceived and implemented for a real life Agricultural Cooperative case study.

Colorado Farms with Women Principal Operators Compared with All Farms Colorado Farms with Women Principal OperatorsArea, 2013Co-Authors: James Barham, Debra Tropp, Kathleen Enterline, Jeff Farbman, Justin Fisk, Stacia Kiraly, Alison Blay-palmer, Karen Landman, Ivan Knezević, Alexander BorstAbstract:
The article focuses on the incorporation of Agricultural Cooperative principles in food hubs. Topics discussed include the growth of local food systems due to increase of consumer demand for local foods, the growth of direct marketing channels, and food aggregation ventures. Also mentioned are the three Cooperative principles such as the user-owner principle, the user-control principle, and the user-benefits principle. INSET: Cooperative Principles.

Notice of Retraction: Agricultural Cooperative insurance: Policy advantages & growth routes2011 International Conference on E-Business and E-Government (ICEE), 2011Co-Authors: Xie Wangsong, Jiang ChenAbstract:
notice of retraction Agricultural Cooperative insurance policy advantages growth routesInternational Conference on E-Business and E-Government, 2011Co-Authors: Xie Wangsong, Jiang ChenAbstract:
Agricultural insurance Cooperatives (hereafter abbreviated AIC) have great policy advantages in operating agriculture insurance. Development of Agricultural Cooperative insurance involves series of difficulties, such as lag in legislation, weak in taxation, lack of effective risk diversification mechanisms, low familiarity and acceptance of farmers, higher costs of organizational problems. Therefore, it is urgent to formulate Agricultural insurance law, establish a sound system of Agricultural Cooperative insurance organizations, build a well-rounded policy support system and improve the farmers’ awareness insurance and cooperation.
