Acreage Decisions When Risk Preferences Vary

Carlos Arnade and Joseph Cooper ()

No 61005, 2010 Annual Meeting, July 25-27, 2010, Denver, Colorado from Agricultural and Applied Economics Association

Abstract: This poster summarizes work on developing a direct and indirect risk preference function to represent producers who make acreage decisions. Risk is depicted as a constraint which producers face when making acreage decisions. A dual to the acreage decision problem is set up and used to obtain a indirect risk function. Derivative properties of the function are used to specify acreage equations. Sample acreage equations are estimated, using county level data for corn, wheat, and soybeans producers.
