CROSS-COMMODITY PERSPECTIVE ON CONTRACTING: EVIDENCE FROM MISSISSIPPI

This analysis presents the results of a survey of agricultural producers in Mississippi regarding their use of contracting. The study focuses on cross-commodity differences in contracting and the variable underlying contracting. Logistic regression models are used to examine the impacts of variables coming from transactions cost economics and risk on contracting decisions. Support is found for the effects of transactions cost, but price risk is not found to be an important determinant of contracting decisions.
