Optimal Decision Rules for Selling Farmer-Owned Wheat from Storage in the Pacific Northwest
Todd Lone and Leroy Blakeslee
Year: 1991
 

Abstract

A stochastic dynamic programming model is developed to determine optimal decision rules for marketing white wheat from storage to the final sale. The model uses forecasts of the probability density functions for future prices; These functions are being updated each week based on current observed prices. Maximization of the of the expected utility of income from sequential decisions is used to capture the effect of risk version. Sensitivity of the optimal decision policy to risk aversion, opportunity cost of money, and storage costs is examined. The application of the model and its use in practical decision making is discussed.

On the Search of Appropriate Price Determination Specifications in Structural Models
Dean Chen and Gerard Dharmaratne
Year: 1991
 

Abstract

A comprehensive set of criteria for evaluation of price determination specifications is proposed. A generalized theoretical relationship is developed to facilitate the search of appropriate structural models. Price elasticities, price flexibilities, and demand shares of the model are used to test the price response behavior of simultaneous structural models. A wheat model is used for empirical comparison of three popular inverse demand (price-dependent) structural model specifications: domestic demand model, export demand model, and stock demand model. Results indicate that price-depent domestic demand and price-dependent export demand are inappropriate, while the price-depend stock demand model generates credible results.

Price Uncertainty Within the Grain Export Marketing Channel
R. J. Hauser and David Neff
Year: 1991
 

Abstract

Results of a survey conducted by the USDA (Caron) indicate that the largest "exporting" risk perceived by U.S. grain merchandisers is caused by changes in the flat price of grain. The largest logistical" risk was associated with ocean charters. The objectives of the present study are to (1) measure these perceived risks in terms of price uncertainty facing exporters and importers of U.S. corn and soybeans at various stages of the marketing channel, (2) estimate the extent to which the uncertainty can be reduced through small portfolio diversification, and (3) compare price uncertainty levels facing exporters versus importers in an attempt to deduce behavioral incentives at each marketing stage.
