SPATIAL YIELD RISK ISSUES: COMPARING YIELD RISK ACROSS REGION, CROP AND AGGREGATION METHOD

Michael P. Popp, Margaretha Rudstrom and Patrick M. Manning

No 19979, 2004 Annual meeting, August 1-4, Denver, CO from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: Crop yield risk analysis is difficult since historic field level yields are often not available. Spatially aggregated yield data are available, however, but aggregation distortion for farm level analysis may exist. This paper addresses how much aggregation distortion to expect and offers some adjustment solutions across crops and production regions.
