Quality Differences And Price Responsiveness Of Wheat Class Demands, William W. Wilson, Paul Gallagher Dec 1990

Quality Differences And Price Responsiveness Of Wheat Class Demands, William W. Wilson, Paul Gallagher

Economics Publications

Price responsiveness and preferences for wheat classes are measured using a Case function specification. Results indicate there have been numerous changes in market shares of wheat classes from different exporters in specific markets. In general, quality differentials are important in some international markets; in others, relative prices are more important in determining market


A National Food-Crop Policy Model For Indonesia, Paul M. Heytens, William H. Meyers Dec 1990

A National Food-Crop Policy Model For Indonesia, Paul M. Heytens, William H. Meyers

CARD Technical Reports

From the implementation of the New Order government's first five-year development plan (Repelita I) in 1969 until the mid-189s, the overriding objective of Indonesian food policy was to increase rice production so as to make the country self-sufficient, at a relatively high level of consumption, in its basic staple food. The goal of rice self-sufficiency was pursued through a centrally directed program of production and area targets, subsidized distribution of inputs with extension services, investment in irrigation and marketing infrastructure, and aremunerative floor price to farmers. With the achievement of rice self-sufficiency in 1985, the focus of Indonesia's ...

Fapri U.S. Crops Model Documentation, Patrick C. Westhoff, Robert Frederick Baur, Deborah L. Stephens, William H. Meyers

CARD Technical Reports

The U.S. crops model is one component of the integrated modeling system developed and maintained by the Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute (FAPRI), which operates as a joint program at Iowa State University and the University of Missouri-Columbia. The FAPRI system is used to generate medium-term projections of the agricultural economy and to conduct policy analysis. The U.S. crops model determines domestic supply, utilization, and prices for wheat, corn, sorghum, oats, barley, soybeans, soybean meal, soybean oil, rice, and cotton, Other components of the FAPRI system include world trade models for grains and oilseeds, domestic livestock models ...


An Ec Feed Grain Spatial Equilibrium Model For Policy Analysis, Ludo Peters Jun 1990

An Ec Feed Grain Spatial Equilibrium Model For Policy Analysis, Ludo Peters

CARD Working Papers

This paper presents a multicommodity price-endogenous spatial equilibrium model of the (European Community) EC feed grain sector. The model incorporates nonintegrable feed grain demand functions which were estimated using a pseudodata approach based on a set of representative least-cost LP models of compound feed production in the EC. The price and quantity impacts of three "rebalancing" EC policies are investigated within a comparative statics framework: the abolition of the green rates or Monetary Compensatory Amounts (MCA) system, a 10% cut in support prices for EC grains, and a 10% tax on the use of imported cereal substitutes. Both "short-run" (constant ...

The World Wheat Trade Model: Specification, Estimation, And Validation, S. Devadoss, Michael D. Helmar, William H. Meyers Mar 1990

The World Wheat Trade Model: Specification, Estimation, And Validation, S. Devadoss, Michael D. Helmar, William H. Meyers

CARD Technical Reports

The wheat trade model is one of the three models in the trade modeling system developed, updated, and maintained by the Center for Agricultural and Rural Development (CARD). The other two commodity trade models are for feed grains and the soybeans complex. The three trade models are linked through cross-price linkages in the supply and demand components of these models, yet each model can be solved on a stand-alone basis. In general, however, all three trade models are solved iteratively to obtain a simultaneous solution. Equilibrium prices, quantities of supply and demand and net trade are determined by equating excess ...


Remarks Prepared For Delivery By Clayton Yeutter Secretary Of Agriculture To The Chicago Farmers, Clayton K. Yeutter Jan 1990

Remarks Prepared For Delivery By Clayton Yeutter Secretary Of Agriculture To The Chicago Farmers, Clayton K. Yeutter

Clayton K. Yeutter, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Papers

It's a great pleasure for me to be back in Chicago, especially when it means seeing so many friends and acquaintances. I'd like to thank The Chicago Farmers for extending to me this invitation to talk with you today about America's agricultural future. As you know, Congress is struggling to resolve differences between their respective versions of the 1990 Farm Bill. What you may not know -- and what I'd like to discuss with you today -- is that in several notable instances neither version reflects what America's farmers have asked for, nor what America's farmers ...


Remarks Prepared For Delivery By Secretary Of Agriculture Clayton Yeutter To The American Chamber Of Commerce, Clayton K. Yeutter Jan 1990

Remarks Prepared For Delivery By Secretary Of Agriculture Clayton Yeutter To The American Chamber Of Commerce, Clayton K. Yeutter

Clayton K. Yeutter, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Papers

Most Americans won't ever forget -- and I certainly won't -- the news photos taken of the destruction of the Berlin Wall. But even as this political wall was toppling, other walls were going up, ever higher, around the world. I am talking about economic walls -- the subsidies, import bans, price supports, and other policies - which are distorting, and threatening to destroy, the world's agricultural trade.

Clayton Yeutter Secretary Of Agriculture Before The Senate Committee On Agriculture, Nutrition, And Forestry February 7, 1990, Clayton K. Yeutter

Clayton K. Yeutter, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Papers

Mr. Chairman and Members of the Committee, I welcome the invitation to appear today to discuss the 1990 Farm Bill. The making of farm policy in 1990 will be truly historic. The road that we take over the coming months will be vital to u.s. farmers, the American public, and, in fact, the world. As you know, we have been working very hard at the USDA and within the Administration for many months to develop proposals that we believe will best serve our nation's food and fiber industries and all Americans. Yesterday we unveiled our ideas. This morning ...


Remarks Prepared For Delivery To The Journal Of Commerce And The National Foreign Trade Council's Uruguay Round Conference By Secretary Of Agriculture Clayton Yeutier, Clayton K. Yeutter Jan 1990

Remarks Prepared For Delivery To The Journal Of Commerce And The National Foreign Trade Council's Uruguay Round Conference By Secretary Of Agriculture Clayton Yeutier, Clayton K. Yeutter

Clayton K. Yeutter, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Papers

It is time to quit pretending that supply management works as a farm income enhancement program. It may in the short run; it doesn't in the long run. It is time to stop pretending that protectionist trade policies help America's agriculture. They may in the short run; they don't in the long run.


Remarks Prepared For Delivery To The International Office Of Epizootics By U.S. Secretary Of Agriculture Clayton Yeutter, Clayton K. Yeutter Jan 1990

Remarks Prepared For Delivery To The International Office Of Epizootics By U.S. Secretary Of Agriculture Clayton Yeutter, Clayton K. Yeutter

Clayton K. Yeutter, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Papers

It is a pleasure for me to be with you today at the annual meeting of the International Office of Epizootics. I would first like to congratulate the recipients of your gold and silver awards, which I am sure are well-deserved. I also want to state how much the United States has appreciated the efforts of Director-General Blajan. Although we have only been a member of OlE since 1978, we have developed great respect for this organization. OlE is held in high regard throughout the world, and the firm and competent leadership of Dr. Blajan has been a major reason ...


"Trade Reform, The Key To The Future Of U.S. Farming", Clayton K. Yeutter Jan 1990

"Trade Reform, The Key To The Future Of U.S. Farming", Clayton K. Yeutter

Clayton K. Yeutter, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Papers

I have been asked innumerable times why world agricultural trade reform is so important to U.S. farmers. Some of the people doing the asking are often afraid of what such reform might mean to U.S. agriculture. A question I occasionally ask back is, "What is there to fear?" If we are the efficient agricultural producers we say we are -- and I believe we are - then the Uruguay Round of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) offers American farmers an unprecedented opportunity to gain market share in the growing world markets for food. American agriculture has not ...

Cb President Bush's "America The Beautiful Initiative" At The White House Remarks By President Bush And Secretary Of Agriculture Clayton Yeutter, Clayton K. Yeutter

Clayton K. Yeutter, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Papers

SEC. YEUTTER: Good morning, ladies and gentlemen, and welcome to this auspicious tree-planting ceremony. We're delighted to have you all here. That's quite a tree that we're going to be planting. I'm not sure we're going to get that job done with two shovels, but maybe that depends on how fast people shovel. At any rate, we'll give you some experience in that regard very shortly. As we begin the program, I'd like to spend just two minutes giving the essence of what the morning's activity is about. Then, I'll introduce ...


Remarks Prepared For Delivery To The Organization For Economic Cooperation And Development Ministerial Meeting By U.S. Secretary Of Agriculture Clayton Yeuiter, Clayton K. Yeutter Jan 1990

Remarks Prepared For Delivery To The Organization For Economic Cooperation And Development Ministerial Meeting By U.S. Secretary Of Agriculture Clayton Yeuiter, Clayton K. Yeutter

Clayton K. Yeutter, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Papers

This is a particularly important time for us to be gathering for this Ministerial meeting. The Uruguay Round of negotiations under the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) is entering a crucial period. It is imperative that the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) make a strong statement of support for freer and fairer trade in all fields, including agriculture. The nations of the world are looking to the OECD to clearly point the way toward an improved world trading system.
