Title: THE POTENTIAL FOR INTRASEASONAL MARKET FLOW MANAGEMENT OF SOUTHEASTERN SWEET POTATOES
Authors: Epperson, James E.
Huang, Wan-Tran
Issue Date: 1992-06
Abstract: The potential for a marketing order involving management of intraseasonal shipments of southeastern sweet potatoes was examined through a comparison of prices, shipments, and producers' surplus measures for the dynamic competitive equilibria case and the actual market case. The results of the study suggest that supply controls would not be beneficial, at least in the usual sense. The proper strategy would appear to be to increase rather than limit shipments of quality sweet potatoes in all seasons of the year.
