Dr. Yangxuan Liu focuses on economic issues related to cotton production and specializes in agricultural finance and agribusiness management. Her research focuses on economic and risk assessment of existing agricultural systems as well as emerging technologies and practices to improve long-term sustainability and profitability of agricultural production. Dr. Liu’s extension programs address current and emerging state and national issues related primarily to cotton marketing, production economics, farm management, and agricultural policy.
