Forestry in Louisiana - The Industry’s Contribution to the Louisiana Economy: An Input-Output Analysis 2011
Forest resources affect the economy at all levels, from wages and purchases in local economies to state-level payroll and income taxes. Therefore, there is widespread interest in effects of the forest products industry from local producers, landowners and multinational corporate entities and therefore political officials, as well. This study evaluates the importance of the forest products industry to the state’s economy. (PDF Format Only)
LSU AgCenter Research Stations
LSU AgCenter Research Stations
The LSU AgCenter operates 20 research locations across the state. These stations work with crops and animals in the same environments and conditions as the state’s farmers, ranchers and foresters to ensure the information they supply meets the needs of Louisiana’s producers. The research focus, special features, size, location and contact information for each research station is included. (PDF Format Only)

Exporting Louisiana Soybeans into Matamoros, Mexico, Versus Direct Sale at Harvest in Louisiana (Winter 2000)
Exporting Louisiana Soybeans into Matamoros, Mexico, Versus Direct Sale at Harvest in Louisiana (Winter 2000)
Producers continually search for alternative marketing outlets that offer the potential for superior financial returns. This study analyzed whether Louisiana soybean farmers could net increased profits by barging soybeans into Matamoros, Mexico, instead of selling them at harvest to local elevators. (PDF Format Only)
Seasonal Abundance of Arthropod Populations on Selected Soybean Varieties Grown in Early Season Production Systems in Louisiana (1997)
Seasonal Abundance of Arthropod Populations on Selected Soybean Varieties Grown in Early Season Production Systems in Louisiana (1997)
The data presented in this report were collected by entomologists to provide Louisiana soybean producers with information on insect management practices that may be required as they select the soybean maturity group that best fits their production systems. (PDF Format Only)
Late Season Insect Pests of Soybean in Louisiana: Preventive Management and Yield Enhancement (September 2002)
Late-season Insect Pests of Soybean in Louisiana: Preventive Management and Yield Enhancement (September 2002)
The velvetbean caterpillar and the soybean looper are important pests of soybeans in Louisiana.

Valuation of Sugarcane Associates with Eminent Domain Land Acquisition in Louisiana
Valuation of Sugarcane Associated with Eminent Domain Land Acquisition in Louisiana (October 1999)
The purpose of this bulletin is to present a method to value perennial crops associated with eminent domain acquisition of agricultural crop land. More specifically, it focuses on the estimation of the value of ‘short-lived’ perennial crops, crops that have a productive life over a relatively short, defined period of years, as opposed to permanent plantings, such as orchards or vineyards, which have a productive life over a considerably longer period.
