dc.description.abstractThe investigation was done with the purpose of analyzing economic viability of rice sowing in Puerto Rico, using data of recent studies done at the Agricultural Experiment Station in Lajas. At the time of this investigation there are no commercial rice sowing on the Island. In order to carry out the analysis, cash flow and investment cost were determined using a crop in an area of 896 “cuerdas”. Afterwards, Investment Payback (PBP), Net Present Value (NPV) and Internal Rate of Return (IRR) were calculated. We found that the commercial rice sowing is economically viable if the recommended practices of agriculture are used. Various recommendations are offered for public policy to ensure our food supply.
dc.description.abstractEsta investigación se realizó con el propósito de analizar la viabilidad económica de la siembra de arroz en Puerto Rico utilizando datos correspondientes a estudios recientes realizados en la Estación Experimental Agrícola del Valle de Lajas. Al momento de esta investigación no se cultiva arroz a nivel comercial en la Isla. Para realizar el análisis, se determinó el costo de inversión y se calculó el flujo de efectivo de una siembra en un predio de 896 cuerdas. Luego se calculó el Periodo de Restitución de la Inversión (PBP), el Valor Neto Presente (NPV) y la Tasa de Rendimiento Interna (IRR). Los resultados demuestran que esta siembra es económicamente viable si se utilizan las prácticas agrícolas recomendadas. Se ofrecen varias recomendaciones para que la política pública asegure nuestras reservas de alimentos.
