Abstract

This study evaluates the frequency of marketing for a sample of 572 Kansas crop producers. The frequency of marketing is an important dimension of marketing practices that has received little empirical attention. At its most fundamental level, the frequency of marketing is intimately related to on-farm and off-farm commodity storage. Estimators appropriate for integer count data are utilized to evaluate the relationship among farm and operator characteristics with observed frequencies of marketing. Large, non-irrigated crop partnerships which have little rented acreage appear to market the most frequently. Young operators that spend a considerable amount of time in self-education efforts also appear to market more frequently.
