How Has The Domestic Wheat Market Changed Since Deregulation?

This article evaluates the impact of deregulation on wheat growers. marketers and buyers. An analysis of market structure focuses on the market prior to deregulation, the stimulus for change and the ways in which parts of the wheat marketing chain have developed since deregulation. The change in AWB pool deductions for storage, handling and transportation charges, and the consequent change in seasonal marketing margins since deregulation are explored. The main finding of this preliminary study is that deregulation has been associated with reductions in freight and handling charges as well as seasonal marketing margins. Factors other than deregulation appear to have contributed to the reduction in the marketing margin and would bear further investigation.
