ESTIMATING IMPLICIT MARGINAL PRICES OF QUALITY CHARACTERISTICS OF TOMATOES

Jeffrey Jordan (), R.L. Shewfelt, Stanley E. Prussia and W.C. Hurst

Southern Journal of Agricultural Economics, 1985, vol. 17, issue 2, 8

Abstract: A hedonic price function is developed for estimating the implicit prices for selected quality characteristics of fresh tomatoes at three points in the marketing season. The estimation of this function, proposed as a method of evaluating change in the post-harvest system, is accomplished using a flexible functional form. Those quality characteristics that most affect the price of tomatoes can help determine the economic feasibility of alternative handling techniques or new technologies.
