Title: FORWARD CONTRACTING OF INPUTS: A FARM-LEVEL ANALYSIS
Authors: Perry, Janet E.

Keywords: forward contracting

risk
Issue Date: 1999
Abstract: Forward contracting of inputs in production agriculture is becoming increasingly important as more farmers attempt to manage risk. Using a logit model and farm-level data, this analysis estimates the effect of factors on the probability of a producer using forward input contracting. Results suggest that use of contracting in selling of crops and livestock, technology, farm size, geographic location, participation in government commodity programs, and use of extension services are important factors affecting the choice to forward contract inputs.
