Title: Cultivar Diversity: A Neglected Risk Management Strategy
Authors: Tadesse, Dawit
Blank, Steven C.
Keywords: cultivar
risk management
safety first
Issue Date: 2003-08
Abstract: Risk reduction through diversification across cultivars is evaluated. A case study of peach growers in California shows that cultivar diversity reduces both yield and revenue variability. As a result, the probability of falling below minimum income requirements set using a safety-first model is reduced using this strategy.
