Retail fertilizer plant costs efficiency and profitability


, : Retail fertilizer plant costs efficiency and profitability. Station Bulletin, Agricultural Experiment Station, Purdue University (123): 53

Forty-seven midwestern retail fertilizer firms, with fertilizer and chemical sales in excess of $100,000 and 90% of their business directly with farmers, participated in the study with their 1974 financial data. Firms in the study were not selected randomly. 1974 was marked by fertilizer shortages, very strong demand due to high grain prices, and rapidly changing fertilizer prices. Most fertilizer prices doubled or tripled between April 1973 and April 1975.

Techniques for reconstruction of biological networks which are based on perturbation experiments often predict direct interactions between nodes that do not exist. Transitive reduction removes such relations if they can be explained by an indirect...

Although the Symptom Checklist (SCL-90-R) is one of the most widely used self-reported scales covering several psychopathological states, the scalability of the SCL-90-R has been found to be very problematic. We have performed a clinimetric analys...
