A Simulation of the Grain Producers' Decision Problem at Harvest

A simulation model is employed to find the least cost way of dealing with the grain carryover during and after completion of harvesting that is caused by a difference between harvesting and trucking capabilities in the short run. The study may potentially aid the farmer in the face of legislative changes affecting wheat marketing, as well as technological changes in harvesting equipment. Results tend to indicate that temporary paddock storage may be more efficient than contract trucking in managing the carryover.
