Ronald A. Babula, Karl M. Rich, Ronald A. Babula & Karl M. Rich
A quarterly, partial-equilibrium vector-autoregression model of the U.S. durum wheat and pasta markets was estimated and simulated under three trade-barrier changes that are of potential relevance for the current round of WTO agricultural negotiations: a rise in the U.S. market-clearing durum wheat quantity from increased imports; a policy- or tariff- reduction-induced decline in U.S. durum wheat price; and a tariff-induced rise in U.S. pasta product prices. In response to each shock, an array of quarterly...

Alberto B. Manalo, Conrado M. Gempesaw, Alberto B. Manalo & Conrado M. Gempesaw
In a mail survey of shellfish consumers in the U. S. Northeast, a conjoint experiment was conducted where respondents were asked to rank oyster alternatives that differed on the following attributes: source information, price, and inspection information. Ordered probit analysis of all responses revealed that inspection information was the most important attribute, followed by source information, and price. Respondents most preferred oysters that were farm- raised, priced at $3.49/oz., and inspected by the Food and...

Respondents who...

A STUDY OF ASIAN-AMERICAN RICE DEMAND IN HOUSTON, TEXAS

Harold L. Goodwin, Rodney B. Holcomb, M. Edward Rister, Harold L. Goodwin, Rodney B. Holcomb & M. Edward Rister
Responses to a product placement study of five long-grain rice varieties in 192 Asian-American households in Houston, Texas were utilized to estimate a quality-adjusted price model for rice demand. Quantity-dependent demand functions were estimated using actual price, quality-adjusted price, and no price scenarios. Results indicate that, although price was statistically significant, it explained very little of the variation in the quantity of rice demanded; further, income was not significant in determining rice demand for Asian...

USING CUSTOMER SURVEYS TO PROMOTE FARMERS' MARKETS: A CASE STUDY

David B. Eastwood & David B. Eastwood
Changing food consumption patterns indicate that food retailers need to be responsive to patrons. Consumer surveys can be used to identify changes that should be made in the management of a facility and to identify relevant promotional messages for food shoppers. A survey of shoppers at a farmers' market is used to estimate a Poisson regression of the number of trips. Results provide a basis for the outlet becoming more responsive to consumer information needs.

ESTIMATION OF IMPERFECT COMPETITION IN FOOD MARKETING: A DYNAMIC ANALYSIS OF THE GERMAN BANANA MARKET

Satish Y. Deodhar, Ian M. Sheldon, Satish Y. Deodhar & Ian M. Sheldon
Several studies have estimated the welfare effects of recent changes in the European Union's common policy on banana imports, based upon the assumption that the market is perfectly competitive. However, if the market is imperfectly competitive, predictions about changes in banana policy may be inaccurate. The objective of this paper is to estimate the degree of market imperfection in the German market for banana imports using dynamic methods. The hypothesis that this market is perfectly...

Delaware consumers were surveyed to obtain information about package size preferences for fresh beef and pork products. A chi-square and gamma analysis was made and age was found to be significant and positively correlated to the size of package chosen for various roasts and flank steak. Age and preferred package size was negatively correlated for ground beef, sirloin steak, spareribs, and pork chops. The larger the family the greater the tendency to buy larger packages...
