Abstract

We investigate the design of a two-period contract between an agricultural processor and growers whose quality-ability types are not observable to the processor. After characterizing the optimal contracts and establishing conditions for a separating equilibrium, we investigate how a payment based on first-period reputation may induce more first-period effort. We show that this reputation-based payment can improve both the processor's and the grower's welfare, resulting in a dominant equilibrium.
