  • Agricultural technical education and agrochemical use by rice farmers in
    • Authors: Ruiyao Ying; Li Zhou, Wuyang Hu, Dan Pan
      Abstract: Using participatory approaches and experimental economic methods, this paper analyzes the impacts of different types of agricultural technical education on farmers’ agrochemical use in China. Agricultural technical education is differentiated as training through a short course and additional personal guidance both offered through agricultural extension agencies. Results show that training alone may generate the desired result of reducing fertilizer usage. However, additional personal guidance does not support the intended goal of reducing the application of either fertilizer or pesticide. This study also detects technology diffusion effect in that farmers who are not offered education but are in the same village where the education programs are offered are more likely to change their behavior. Implications of this study call for better supervision and implementation of agricultural extension efforts in China. [EconLit citations: Q12, Q16, Q52]

  • Consumer preferences for pork attributes related to traceability,
           information certification, and origin labeling: Based on China's Jiangsu
    • Authors: Linhai Wu; Xiaoru Gong, Shasha Qin, Xiujuan Chen, Dian Zhu, Wuyang Hu, Qingguang Li
      Abstract: In this study, 110 consumers in Wuxi, China's Jiangsu Province were surveyed for their preferences for traceable pork in a real choice experiment. Using random parameters logit and latent class logit models, results revealed that consumers had the highest willingness to pay (WTP) for government certification of traceability information authenticity. Consumers also had higher WTP for origin labeling compared to uncertified traceability information. Moreover, traceability to slaughter and processing was viewed as a substitute for local farming labeling and complement to non-local farming labeling. Despite the heterogeneity among consumer groups, all consumers had some positive WTP for the local farming labeling attribute of traceable pork. Therefore, it is beneficial to include origin labeling in the traceable food attribute systems during the initial construction of traceable food markets in China.

  • Quantifying Federal Regulatory Burdens in the Beer Value Chain
    • Authors: Trey Malone; Dustin Chambers
      Abstract: While the literature has discussed the impacts of specific regulations in the broader marketplace, nothing has been published that identifies the total number of federal regulatory restrictions imposed upon an entire agribusiness value chain. This letter uses a dataset generated via machine learning methods to count the total number of federal regulations imposed on the beer value chain. We show that 94,212 federal regulatory constraints influenced the beer value chained in 2012, with the majority of constraints being imposed at the brewery level. [EconLit citations: D04, I18, O12]

  • The use of a hybrid latent class approach to identify consumer segments
           and market potential for organic products in Nigeria
    • Authors: Muhammad Bello; Awudu Abdulai
      Abstract: Using data from a hypothetical stated preference survey conducted in Nigeria, we show how the relative importance that consumers attach to organic products’ attributes varies strongly as a function of underlying attitudes. We specify a latent class structure that allows us to jointly analyze responses to stated choice and assignment to latent classes, while avoiding measurement error problems. Our results reveal that consumers are willing to pay premium for both health and environmental gains achieved through organic production systems, although their quantitative valuation is higher for the health concerns. Furthermore, we note that individuals with stronger preferences for organic products tend to attach a global value to the certification program, whereas the valuation tends to be more restrictive among respondents that prioritize the status quo option (conventional alternative). We also observe that differences in respondents’ geographic location and level of awareness of organic food production characteristics (prior to the survey) have significant impact on consumers’ choices.[EconLit citations: D12, Q13, Q18, Q56]

  • Financial inclusion, financial education, and e-commerce in rural china
    • Authors: Calum G. Turvey; Xueping Xiong
      Abstract: This letter examines the state of financial inclusion in rural China. It shows that despite China's efforts at being financially inclusive there is substantial variability across and within provinces. With strong reliance on electronic technologies, China's rural and farm communities use internet technologies only half as much as all users, and less than 2% access credit through the internet. From a policy perspective, China should address problems of financial education and rural credit access.

  • Using labeled choice experiments to analyze demand structure and market
           position among seafood products
    • Authors: Nguyen Tien Thong; Hans Stubbe Solgaard, Wolfgang Haider, Eva Roth, Lars Ravn-Jonsen
      Abstract: Understanding market competition and consumer preferences are important first steps in developing a business. In a competitive market, the effectiveness of the various elements of a firm's marketing mix depends not only on the absolute value of each element but also on the relative values of the elements with respect to the firm's position in the market. In this paper, we analyze the demand structure and market positions of a variety of seafood products in the French retail market. We used a labeled choice experiment to analyze 12 seafood species. The choice options were labeled by the names of the seafood, providing researchers the opportunity to analyze the competitive interactions among the species. Competitive clout and vulnerability measures were estimated for each species as summary measures of species competition. These measures were calculated from cross- and own-elasticities and reveal that salmon and cod have the strongest market position, while monkfish and pangasius have the weakest. In general, the demand for seafood is moderately sensitive to price (market elasticity of −1.31). Large size and low-income households, female consumers, people in the age range 35–44 years, and self-employed consumers are the most sensitive to price. Four segments were identified and described in terms of both consumer characteristics and preferences. Our results are meaningful for producers and retailers to develop marketing strategies and production plans. [EconLit citations: D12, M21, Q13].

  • Substituting hake with sardines' Economic crisis and fish demand in
    • Authors: Ikerne del Valle; Jordi Guillen, Kepa Astorkiza
      Abstract: The main objective of this paper is to investigate the existence of an economic crisis-induced demand shift in the Spanish fish market. This is performed by endogenously examining whether the existence of a structural break in fish price trends around 2008, corresponding to the collapse of the Spanish economy, together with an asymmetric and specific price behavior regarding the sign and magnitude of the expected income elasticities of three staple fish species (i.e., sardine, anchovy and hake). Our data corroborate not only the structural break hypothesis for rooted luxury and inferior fish species in the Spanish market but also an opposite price response after the break, which explains the increasing pressure on cheap fish demand and conversely the lower demand for expensive fish products. Results show consistency for all market levels analyzed (i.e., origin, wholesale and retail). [EconLit citations: C22, Q31].

  • Implications of the 2006 E. coli outbreak on spatial price transmission in
           the U.S. fresh spinach market
    • Authors: Samantha L. Durborow; Chanjin Chung, Seon-woong Kim
      Abstract: A regime switching error correction model is applied to weekly shipping point and terminal market spinach prices in order to assess the spatial price transmission impact of the 2006 E. coli outbreak on the U.S. fresh spinach market. A food safety index (FSI) related to the outbreak is calculated and used as the regime switching mechanism for 11 alternative farm-to-wholesale spatially separated market pairs. Results suggest not all markets responded uniformly to the FSI. The majority of the markets with alternative sources of spinach exhibited nonlinearities, whereas those which were primarily supplied by California producers did not. In general, shorter adjustment speeds were seen in terminal markets that were closer in proximity to the California shipping point. Southern market pairs exhibiting threshold behavior saw increased efficiency after the outbreak (potentially due to increased self-regulation), whereas the remaining pairs saw a loss in efficiency.

  • Four indicators that explain world grain and oilseed market developments
    • Authors: Patrick Westhoff; Wyatt Thompson
      Abstract: Growth in crop yields, population, Chinese demand and biofuel production can explain important developments in world grain and oilseed markets over the last 35 years. The same indicators provide clues about what to expect between now and 2050. Proportional rates of growth in both crop yields and population are slowing. Chinese demand and biofuel production account for the entire net increase in world per-capita grain and oilseed consumption since 1980. If biofuel expansion and Chinese consumption growth slow, a key question is whether a new engine of demand growth will emerge. Decisions made by farmers, agribusinesses, policy makers and consumers will all affect future food supplies and prices. [EconLit citations: Q11, Q13, Q18]

  • Estimating the cost of pre-harvest forward contracting corn and soybeans
           in Illinois before and after 2007
    • Authors: Xiaoli L. Etienne; Mindy L. Mallory, Scott H. Irwin
      Abstract: Forward contracting historically has been the principal risk management tool of crop farmers in the United States. We use pre-harvest forward contract bids from 1977 to 2013 in Illinois to estimate the cost of forward contracting corn and soybeans. Prior to 2007, it cost 1.55% of the October spot price or 3.74 cents/bushel on average to forward contract corn at the end of February. In 2007–2013, a period of high price volatility, the average cost increased to 3.31% or 16.40 cents/bushel. In the soybean market, before 2007 the average cost was 0.77% or 6.26 cents/bushel and thereafter increased to 1.46% or 15.62 cents/bushel. Default risk does not appear to be a determinant of forward contracting cost. However, evidence suggests that the higher cash flow risk associated with volatile market prices is likely to be the main driving cause of increasing forward contracting costs observed after 2007.

  • Influence of brand equity on the price premium for private labels in fresh
           produce: A contingent valuation survey
    • Authors: Kiyotaka Masuda; Shohei Kushiro
      Abstract: In recent years, premium private labels for fresh produce grown with reduced use of synthetic pesticides and chemical fertilizers have been developed by Japanese general merchandise stores. In this paper, the brand equity factors that affect willingness to pay (WTP) for private label vegetables are identified using the contingent valuation method. We consider four key dimensions of brand equity, namely brand awareness, brand loyalty, perceived quality, and brand associations. We find that brand loyalty factors based on the psychology of consumers who seek value-added vegetables with health and safety characteristics have the largest effect on the WTP premium. Providing shoppers with clear information about the key product attributes of reduced use of synthetic pesticides and chemical fertilizers is particularly important to generate brand equity for private label vegetables.

           modified label
    • Authors: Elijah Wolfe; Michael Popp, Claudia Bazzani, Rodolfo M. Nayga, Diana Danforth, Jennie Popp, Pengyin Chen, Han-Seok Seo
      Abstract: Results from a sensory test of edamame, which is soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) harvested near the end of the pod filling stage, followed by a non-hypothetical auction, and finally a questionnaire were used to determine WTP for GM labeled edamame in comparison to unlabeled and non-GM labeled edamame. The results showed a significant price premium for non-GM edamame even though overall sensory impression did not differ between GM and non-GM edamame. Interestingly unlabeled and GM labeled edamame bids were similar suggesting that consumers wanted to be informed. Preconceived consumer notions appeared to play a role as did knowledge, opinion, income, and consumption frequency in subsamples of respondents. Labeling edamame is in the interest of producers as all edamame produced in the U.S. is non-GM.

  • The media impact of animal disease on the US meat demand
    • Authors: H. Holly Wang; Paul Gardner Beville
      Abstract: Consumers are sensitive to food safety problems such as the outbreak of animal diseases. This paper examined the impact on consumers’ consumption behavior from information about food safety reported in news media. Taking avian influenza outbreak as an example, we counted articles published in major newspapers in the United States between 2001 and 2009, and included variables constructed based on these counts in an Inverse Almost ideal Demand model using monthly market consumption data on chicken, duck, other poultry, beef, and pork to estimate the impact of news on actual demand of these meats. We found that U.S. consumers would reduce their poultry demand and substitute by livestock meats when such news is reported by media negatively. This effect is boundary-unconstrained, i.e., the U.S. poultry market suffers irrespective to the country of the disease outbreak. However, the magnitude of the effect is lower if the outbreak is from overseas.

  • Processor Linkages and Farm Household Productivity: Evidence from Dairy
           Hubs in East Africa
    • Authors: Immaculate Omondi; Elizaphan J. O. Rao, Aziz A. Karimov, Isabelle Baltenweck
      Abstract: Linking smallholder farmers to large enterprises could be a powerful mechanism to improve input and output markets as well as other productivity-enhancing services for liquidity constrained smallholders. Dairy hubs promoted by East African Dairy Development project are collective farmer-owned milk bulking and/or chilling plants through which farmers get access to output markets and inputs as well as other services necessary for their dairy enterprises. The hubs act as a linkage between large processors and smallholder dairy farmers. They enable farmers to supply milk to large dairy processors who are emerging key players in the East African dairy industry. In addition to the different forms of linkages with large processors, these hubs also differ in their level of growth toward sustainability. In light of this background, this work aims to provide evidence on the effects, at farm level, of different types of linkages between smallholder dairy farmers and large processors through dairy hubs. The study uses cross-sectional survey data collected from 993 smallholder livestock keeping households living within the dairy hubs’ catchment areas in Kenya and Uganda. Statistical tests on technical efficiency estimates from dairy farm enterprises were conducted in order to provide evidence of the effects of the types of processor linkages on the performance of the dairy farm enterprises. The results provide evidence of no strong influence at farm levels that can be attributed to different forms of linkages with processor that dairy hubs adopt. Moreover, though hub sustainability is directly linked to the producer organization's efficiency level, our results show that it does not sufficiently translate to more productive farmers. These findings call for concerted efforts by development agents in the dairy sector, policy makers, and even large processors to intervene in order to support improved farm performance. As evident from the study, one direct policy tool at the disposal of these agents is extension messages. [EconLit citations D24; L25; Q12].

  • Factors Affecting Changes in Managerial Decisions
    • Authors: Joshua D. Woodard; Leslie Verteramo Chiu, Gabriel Power, Dmitry Vedenov, Steven Klose
      Abstract: It is commonly held that revealed managerial decisions depend on the interaction of risk attitudes and preferences, as well as market and firm conditions. In agriculture, production plans can have a horizon of a few months to several years. However, it is not always the case that managers follow through on their plans once established. The purpose of this paper is to investigate factors that contribute to changes between managers’ planned decisions and eventual actions. A unique dataset consisting of farm financial data, consultant generated production plans, and a follow-up producer survey was constructed with participants in the Texas FARM-Assistance program. We evaluate the effects of managers’ behavioral attributes, farm financial indicators, and production characteristics on the decision to follow through on business plans. Our findings provide new insights into the decision-making and planning processes of managers under risky market conditions, and the interactions of same with behavioral characteristics.

  • Coordination of Winegrape Supply Chains in Emerging Markets
    • Authors: Fabio R. Chaddad; Jason R.V. Franken, Miguel I. Gómez, R. Brent Ross
      Abstract: This study investigates factors influencing coordination of winegrape procurement in emerging wine regions in Michigan, Missouri, and New York. Wineries in these emerging regions face different vertical coordination challenges than in well-established regions, which may affect procurement choices. Results corroborate prior findings that quality considerations and the need to safeguard investments in specialized assets, respectively, increase usage of more formal coordination mechanisms like written contracts and vertical integration or ownership. Consistent with prior findings of studies of wineries in established wine regions, we find that perceived difficulty in measuring grape quality attributes leads to tighter coordination; a point previously undocumented for emerging regions.

  • The Effects of Contract Mechanism Design and Risk Preferences on Biomass
           Supply for Ethanol Production
    • Authors: Kassu Wamisho Hossiso; Aaron Laporte, David Ripplinger
      Abstract: This study used a stated choice experimental survey to evaluate the effects of contract design mechanisms and farmers’ risk preferences in supplying biomass for ethanol production in a vertically coordinated biomass supply chain in Northern Plain of the United States. A rank-ordered logit model was used to assess the effects of price- and quantity-based contract mechanisms, risk preferences, and farm characteristics on ranking of contract preferences. Our empirical results show that, under price-based contract, farmers are likely to prefer contract that set fixed price when a contract was offered over short term, however, over the long term, farmers prefer a contract item that set formula with a floor price. Under quantity-based design mechanism, our model results illustrate that contract items that limit biomass quantity delivery requirement become less preferable even if farmers are allowed to negotiate on delivery price. In addition, farmer's risk perception factors toward engaging in marketing organization and vertically coordinated supply chains play a significant role in ranking contract preferences.

  • Technical Efficiency in Chilean Agribusiness Industry: A Metafrontier
    • Authors: Sebastian Lakner; Thelma Brenes-Muñoz, Bernhard Brümmer
      Abstract: This study models the technical efficiency in the Chilean agribusiness industry between 2001 and 2007 by taking into consideration the structural differences between the different subsectors meat, fruit & vegetables, dairy, milling, and bakery. We analyze firm data from the Annual National Industrial Survey (ENIA) totaling 2,940 observations using a stochastic frontier model combined with a metafrontier model. We observe dynamic developments in the subsectors meat, fruit & vegetables, and dairy, with a pronounced export-orientation. We show that especially meat and fruit & vegetables firms have experienced positive technological change, whereas dairy firms are exhibiting a slight decrease in efficiency and technical change. The milling and bakery subsectors, which mainly produce for the domestic market, show a rather constant status in efficiency and technical change. The results confirm that an in-depth analysis of subsectors is necessary to evaluate the competitiveness of the agribusiness industry in Chile. [EconLit citations: D24; Q13].

  • How Much Do Consumers Value Protected Designation of Origin
           Certifications' Estimates of willingness to Pay for PDO Dry-Cured Ham
           in Italy
    • Authors: Christian Garavaglia; Paolo Mariani
      Abstract: This study investigates consumers’ preferences and willingness to pay (WTP) for protected designation of origin certifications. First, the paper proposes the use of a new index in food studies to measure WTP. We focus on dry-cured ham in Italy. Our results add a geographical dimension to studies of consumer preferences by providing evidence of the existence of differences based on place of residence. Consumers who live in the same area where certified ham is produced are willing to pay a lower premium price than consumers living farther away are willing to pay: the closer consumers live to the area of production of the certified product, the less they refer to extrinsic certification cues [EconLit citations: Q11; D12; C35].

  • Information Content of USDA Rice Reports and Price Reactions of Rice
    • Authors: Andrew M. McKenzie; Jessica L. Darby
      Abstract: Rice is a predominant food staple in many regions of the world, and it is important to determine how efficiently the U.S. rice market helps to ensure world food security. This question can be answered by gauging the price discovery performance of the U.S. rice futures market and the economic usefulness of the U.S. government's supply and demand forecasts. So, to this end, we employ two event study approaches: (1) to examine variability in returns on report-release days as compared to returns on pre- and post-report days, and (2) to regress price reactions on changes in usage and production information. It is found that the USDA provides the rice futures markets with valuable information and rice futures respond to the information in an economically consistent manner.

  • What's in a Name' The Impact of Fair Trade Claims on Product Price
    • Authors: Nicholas G. Marconi; Neal H. Hooker, Nicholas DiMarcello
      Abstract: Agribusinesses use credence claims reporting the sustainability of products and supply chains. One example, fair trade, relies on a diverse set of third party standards and certification organizations. Food marketing data are used to compare products launched between 1999 and 2013 in the coffee, tea, and chocolate categories. Out of 3,257 observations making a reference to fair trade, 2,745 were certified. The other items follow certain fair trade practices or support fair trade. Many products claim both fair trade and organic (congruent claim). Fairtrade Labeling Organizations – International (FLO-I) certifiers dominate, but Fair Trade USA (breaking from FLO-I in 2012) is important. A double hurdle hedonic regression model explores the relationship between claims and suggested retail price in the United States, Canada, and European Union over two periods (1999–2011 and 2012–2013). Two models are run, one aggregating non-FLO-I members and one accounting for each individual certifier. The models (first hurdle) are not able to identify factors explaining which products are certified. Results suggest (second hurdle) that after controlling for congruent claims, having a fair trade claim certified by certain third parties significantly raises the price (above an uncertified product). In particular FLO-I certification leads to a higher price in all models in both periods. Conversely, there is a range of premia for non-FLO-I certifiers, not all statistically significant. Implications for stakeholders are advanced. [EconLit citations: D40, L15, L66].

  • Relationship between Children's BMI and Parents’ Preferences for Kids’
           Yogurts with and without Front of Package Health Signals
    • Authors: Gregory Colson; Carola Grebitus
      Abstract: Childhood obesity has emerged as a critical national policy issue in many countries. One challenge in combating childhood obesity via induced shifts toward a healthier diet is that the majority of food consumed by younger children is purchased or prepared by someone else, i.e., a parent. Hence, it is critical to design initiatives and marketing efforts aimed at affecting parents' purchases of healthy foods for their children. In this study, we focus on the potential of front-of-package health labels specifically designed to signal to parents those foods that are healthy for children. We report results of a choice experiment administered to 733 parents. In the experiments, branded and unbranded yogurts marketed to children are considered with different health labels. In our analysis, we control for the child's body mass index (BMI) to assess how labels affect parents' food choices in the context of varying BMI data for the children. We also include whether parents worried about their children's eating patterns react differently to the labeling. Results from two multinomial logit models indicate that parents prefer and are more likely to purchase yogurts with a label denoting the food is a healthy choice for children. Critically, we find parents with children who are overweight or obese, and hence already in the high-risk category due to their body weight, are most affected by the labels. Overall, results indicate that health labels can be an effective signal and marketing effort to nudge parents of overweight or obese children toward healthier food purchase.

  • Ornamental Plants in the United States: An Econometric Analysis of a
           Household-Level Demand System
    • Authors: Vardges Hovhannisyan; Hayk Khachatryan
      Abstract: This study provides an empirical analysis of demand for a large group of ornamental plants using a theory-based demand model. Specifically, consumer preferences are represented by the Almost Ideal Demand System where allowance is made for demand censoring. Given that revealed-preference data are usually limited to certain ornamental plants and geographical locations, we exploit unique hypothetical purchase data collected via an online survey regarding 16 annual, perennial, and foliage plants from across the United States. The effect of various socio-economic and demographic factors on demand for plants is quantified. Our findings indicate that ornamental plants are predominantly price-elastic with foliage plants being more price-responsive vis-a-vis other plant categories. Further, a majority of plants are expenditure-elastic with the estimates of foliage plants manifesting the greatest variability. Finally, plants in the same category appear to be closer substitutes. Results benefit ornamental plant industry stakeholders as they determine the best pricing strategies in their specific markets.

  • Motivational Factors for Remaining in or Exiting a Cooperative
    • Authors: Lovisa Nilsson; Helena Hansson, Carl Johan Lagerkvist
      Abstract: Cooperative attributes were incorporated into a push–pull framework to explain exit/remain behavior for dairy farmers delivering to dairy cooperatives. The exit behavior meant establishing a marketing or processing operation in parallel to cooperative deliveries or the planning such an action. Scale development to measure cooperative attributes resulted in six latent variables: A need to restructure the farm business, the membership role in the cooperative, opportunity, fear of negative evaluation, self-efficacy, and cooperative (dis)loyalty. The latent variables identified were tested against behavioral intentions in two logistic regressions where the dairy farmers’ plans for remaining or exiting the cooperative and their plans for postfarm gate entrepreneurial activities were the dependent variables. Two latent variables emerged as significant predictors: restructuring the farm business and the membership role. These predictors were push factors in the model, suggesting that dissatisfaction with delivery to existing dairy cooperatives, rather than job or life satisfaction from setting up their own business, acted as farmers’ motive to exit. These results can be used in developing communication and strategies for more viable dairy cooperatives and in understanding the incentives behind the ongoing restructuring of the dairy market from a supply perspective.

  • Impacts of Increased Corn Ethanol Production on Price Asymmetry and Market
           Linkages in Fed Cattle Markets
    • Authors: Sungill Han; Chanjin Chung, Prasanna Surathkal
      Abstract: This study compares price transmission behaviors between pre- and post-EPA (Energy Policy Act) periods to investigate the impact of increased production of corn ethanol on price transmission behaviors between five regional fed cattle markets in the United States: Colorado, Iowa-Minnesota, Kansas, Nebraska, and Texas-Oklahoma. Econometric models used in this study consider potential nonlinearity and asymmetry in price transmissions using threshold autoregression and threshold error correction methods, and generalized impulse response functions. Overall, the surge of corn ethanol production after the EPA enactment appears to lead lower integration and slower price adjustment between markets, particularly between noncorn-belt and corn-belt markets. Our analysis also finds strong evidence of the existence of threshold effects and limited evidence of asymmetric price responses in the short and long run for both pre- and post-EPA periods.

  • Retrospective Economic Analysis of Foot and Mouth Disease Eradication in
           the Latin American Beef Sector
    • Authors: Amanda M. Countryman; Amy D. Hagerman
      Abstract: Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) damaged Latin America's beef sector through both production losses and limits to international market access in the early to mid-2000s. Using a base year of 2001, we utilize historical FMD outbreak data and a global economic model to estimate the consequences of FMD on domestic beef production, prices and trade across markets in multiple Latin American countries. Results show that, had FMD been prevented in 2001, Latin America may have benefited from increased access to the world market but relatively small impacts may have occurred on world beef prices. Regional welfare could have improved over observed 2001 market conditions. Regionally, Uruguay may have benefited most if production losses resulting from FMD would have been mitigated.

  • An Analysis of Past World Market Prices of Feed and Milk and Predictions
           for the Future
    • Authors: Bjørn Gunnar Hansen; Yushu Li
      Abstract: Understanding of price behavior is a critical element to make decisions in uncertain conditions that significantly influence the return of dairy market participants. Increased variability in both the world milk price and the world feed price during the last 7-8 years has increased the need for research on price dynamics and price forecasting. The aims of this paper are to explore the dynamics embedded in and between the world milk and feed prices, and to produce reliable forecasts for both prices.We collected the world milk price and the world feed price series from 2002 to 2015 from the International Farm Comparison Network (IFCN). The analysis revealed that the two price series contain business cycles of approximately 32 months. Further, the two series are co- integrated, with the feed price as the leading variable. A combination of three different forecasting models can provide reasonably good forecasts of both prices.

It is based on primary data from 400 orchid and mango producers from the major production areas in Thailand. Mixed logit model estimations show that producers with higher levels of education and awareness about environmental and social requirements are more likely to adopt GLOBALG.A.P. standards. Prior experience in high-value market channels and with public Good Agricultural Practice standards are also crucial factors that motivate producers to adopt GLOBALG.A.P. standards. However, certification costs and time needed for record keeping and training are major adoption barriers. Against this background, we propose more education and stakeholder workshops to increase the likelihood of adoption among Thai horticultural producers. The formation of regular discussion groups would allow fruitful interaction among producers and with advisors, eventually providing vital links between implementation of standards and day-to-day farm practices.

  • Quality Choice and Market Access: Evidence from Chilean Wine Grape
    • Authors: Pilar A. Jano
      Abstract: This paper examines the determinants of becoming a producer of high-quality wine grapes. We explore the case of wine-grape farmers in Chile where we observe a bifurcation of farmer types.“Quasi-subsistence” farmers produce traditional wine-grape varieties and complement their subsistence income with cash coming from wine-grape sale. On the other hand, we observe “entrepreneurial” farmers who produce classic varieties that have the potential to produce high-quality wines. We study this bifurcation empirically using primary data collected during the 2011–2012 growing season. We find that wealth and cultivation ability provide economically and statistically significant explanatory power, but that buyer characteristics also matter. Our results suggest that a farmer's entry into the supply chain for high-quality production is not an individual's choice. Rather it is a joint decision that cannot be fully understood without considering the objectives, incentives, and information of supplier and buyer. [EconLit citations: O14; Q140; L26].

  • Analysis of Umbrella Branding with Crowdsourced Data
    • Authors: Timothy J. Richards
      Abstract: We test for umbrella effects among private label products using a new type of data: crowdsourced data, or data contributed by users of an in-store shopping app for their own, and other users' benefit. We model umbrella effects in our crowdsourced data using a random-parameter logit model with private-label preference parameters correlated among product categories. Our results support the existence of umbrella effects in our limited sample data, where umbrella effects are defined as correlated preferences for private labels across categories.

  • An Analysis of Milk Pricing in the United States Dairy Industry
    • Authors: Yuliya V. Bolotova
      Abstract: The performance of the system of milk pricing within Federal Milk Marketing Orders (FMMOs) has recently attracted increased attention. A dramatic increase in the volatility of milk prices received by dairy farmers has adversely affected dairy farm profitability. Furthermore, the effects that the private Exchange spot cheese market has on FMMOs milk pricing have raised concerns, mostly due to an imperfectly competitive nature of competition process in this market. This research analyzes the behavior of Class III milk price, which is the mover of the overall FMMOs pricing structure, during three milk pricing regimes: Minnesota–Wisconsin price series (1960s–1995), Basic Formula Price (1995–1999), and Multiple Component Pricing (2000–present). The empirical evidence presented in the article indicates that changes in the level of Class III milk price were rather minor in magnitude. However, changes in the milk price volatility were dramatic. There is empirical evidence indicating that the private Exchange spot cheese price is the main determinant of the Class III milk price, which is consistent with the design of Class III milk pricing during the analyzed FMMOs milk pricing regimes.
