Abstract: The optimal commodity program choice depends as much on the specific production system in each farm as on the producer's expectations about future yields and prices. Furthermore, the risk profile of producers will weigh heavily in the decision. This article illustrates the role of price expectations and risk profiles in commodity program choice using the ISU Farm Bill Analyzer (MS Excel file) .
