A Spatial Equilibrium Model of the Impact of Bio-Fuels Energy Policy on Grain Transportation Flows AgEcon
Ahmedov, Zafarbek; Power, Gabriel J.; Vedenov, Dmitry V.; Fuller, Stephen W.; McCarl, Bruce A.; Vadali, Sharada.
Traffic flows in the U.S. have been affected by the substantial increase and, as of January 2009, decrease in biofuel production and use. This paper considers a framework to study the effect on grain transportation flows of the 2005 Energy Act and subsequent legislation, which mandated higher production levels of biofuels, e.g. ethanol and biodiesels. Future research will incorporate changes due to the recent economic slowdown.

A WELFARE ANALYSIS OF PORT USER FEES: THE CASE OF GRAIN AND SOYEAN EXPORTS AgEcon
Peterson, E. Wesley F.; Viscencio-Brambila, Hector; Fuller, Stephen W..
User fees have become a popular means of financing public services, including certain transportation facilities. The Water Resources Development Act of 1986 includes provisions for user fees to finance part of the costs of operations, maintenance, and new construction of the U.S. port system. The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the welfare implications of this legislation. An analytical model is developed and used to estimate the impact of port user fees on grain and oilseed producers, consumers, and the government. The results of the analysis indicate that the user fee has a relatively small effect on producer welfare and that the efficiency gains resulting from the replacement of the government subsidy for port operations, maintenance, and new...

ALTERNATIVE WHEAT COLLECTION AND TRANSPORTATION SYSTEMS FOR THE SOUTHERN U.S. PLAINS AgEcon
Fuller, Stephen W.; Sorenson, L. Orlo; Johnson, Marc A.; Oehrtman, Robert L..
This study examines means of improving efficiency of the transportation portion of the export wheat handling system in the southern Plains. Analysis focuses on the feasibility of restructuring grain handling facilities to accommodate unit train movements to port locations. To accomplish this, a cost-minimizing network flow model was developed. Results show that the alternative transportation systems would have substantial effects on costs, wheat flow patterns and the economic variability of certain members of the grain handling and storage industry.

ANALYSIS OF DYNAMIC INTERRELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN TRANSPORTATION RATES AND GRAIN PRICES AgEcon
Yu, Tun-Hsiang (Edward); Bessler, David A.; Fuller, Stephen W..
Transportation rates are vital components in the structure of U.S. grain exports. In this paper we study the dynamic properties of corn and soybean prices, and barge, rail and ocean shipping rates using time series analysis on monthly 1992-2001 data. Using Error Correction Model and Directed Acyclic Graphs, we capture the interconnectivity between the transportation rates and grain prices at selected domestic and export markets. We find Illinois processor prices are important sources of price discovery for both corn and soybeans. Further, barge rates explain about 2-4% of the variation in grain prices while rail rates explain about 10-12% of the variation in corn and soybean prices.

ANALYSIS OF FORCES AFFECTING COMPETITIVE POSITION OF MEXICO IN SUPPLYING U.S. WINTER MELON MARKET AgEcon
Espinoza Arellano, Jose de Jesus; Fuller, Stephen W.; Malaga, Jaime E..
An econometric model representing the United States, Mexico and Caribbean nations melon sectors was estimated to analyze the primary economic forces influencing Mexico's competitiveness in the U.S. winter melon market, a period when about two-thirds of U.S. consumption is imported. Results show peso-devaluation to be important in the short-run and yield-enhancing technology to be important in the short- and long-run. Increased rates of growth in Mexican yields were about six times more effective at increasing market share than NAFTA provisions which phase-out U.S. tariffs. An accelerated rate of growth in Mexican per capita income was found to reduce melon exports about 75% while higher wages would reduce exports about 20% in the long-run.

Cointegration and Causality Analysis of World Vegetable Oil and Crude Oil Prices AgEcon
Yu, Tun-Hsiang (Edward); Bessler, David A.; Fuller, Stephen W..
Because of the recent soaring petroleum price and growing environmental concerns, biodiesel has become an important alternative fuel. Biodiesel is the mono alky esters made from a vegetable oil, such as soybean or rapeseed oil, or sometimes from animal fats. The escalation in world petroleum price has stimulated the demand for biodiesel, which consequently expanded the use of vegetable oils. This paper investigates the long-run interdependence between major edible oil prices and examines the dynamic relationship between vegetable and crude oil prices. The data consists of 378 weekly observations extending from the first week of January in 1999 to the fourth week of March in 2006. We apply time-series analytical mechanisms and directed acyclic graphs...

EFFECT OF CONTRACT DISCLOSURE ON PRICE: RAILROAD GRAIN CONTRACTING IN THE PLAINS AgEcon
Fuller, Stephen W.; Ruppel, Fred J.; Bessler, David A..
The Staggers Rail Act of 1980 granted railroads freedom to establish rates and enter into confidential contracts with grain shippers. Recent legislation (1986) required that certain contract terms be disclosed. This study shows rail rates in the Plains region commenced an upward trend after implementation of the disclosure policy. Results suggest contract disclosure and increased reliance on posted tariffs facilitated rate coordination within the oligopolistic railroad industry.

EFFECT OF INVESTMENT IN AIR POLLUTION CONTROLS ON FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE OF TEXAS COTTON GINS: A SIMULATION ANALYSIS AgEcon
Fuller, Stephen W.; Gillis, Melanie; Parnell, Calvin; Ramaiyer, Anantha; Childers, Roy.
The Federal Clean Air Act (FCAA) amendments of 1990 strengthened air pollution regulation as it affects stationary sources such as cotton gins. Because investments in air pollution systems are sometimes substantial, a financial burden may be placed on gin plant firms that results in insolvency or failure. The primary objective of this study is to determine likely success/failure rates for Texas gin plants that would result from introducing various levels of air pollution control. Analysis focuses on five representative gin plant firms and three air pollution control systems that offer differing control technology and particulate emission rates. Simulation analysis is carried out with financial models that represent each of the five gin plant firms. The...

EFFECT OF LIBERALIZED U.S.-MEXICO DRY ONION TRADE: A SPATIAL AND INTERTEMPORAL EQUILIBRIUM ANALYSIS AgEcon
Fuller, Stephen W.; Gillis, Melanie; Ziari, Houshmand A..
A spatial, intertemporal equilibrium model of the North American dry onion economy is constructed to analyze the impact of liberalized U.S.-Mexico trade. In a free-trade environment, exports of Mexican onions to the U.S. are projected to increase about 50%, while Mexico's share of the U.S. market increases from 8.7 to 12.8%. Farm-level prices in the U.S. are projected to decline 8.9%, while production declines 2.4%. The effect of free trade on U.S. producers is disproportional across regions. Northwest storage onion producers experience the greatest decline in production; however, analysis suggests that improved storage methods may offset a portion of the unfavorable impacts of onion producers; the industry would not be economically devastated.

EFFECT OF PROPOSED GRAIN STANDARDS ON MARKETING COSTS OF THE U.S. SORGHUM SECTOR: AN INTERREGIONAL TRANSSHIPMENT-PLANT LOCATION MODEL AgEcon
Ziari, Houshmand A.; Fuller, Stephen W.; Grant, Warren R.; Sutaria, Vinod.
Recent legislative initiatives call for studies to evaluate costs associated with cleaning U.S. grains to meet more stringent standards. This paper reports on a study which developed a mixed-integer programming model of the U.S. sorghum sector to (1) determine the least-cost geographic location for new cleaning investment at the country, terminal and port elevator stages of the marketing system and (2) measure additional system marketing costs associated with implementing the proposed standards. Results show the least-cost cleaning location to be at country and terminal elevators in excess supply regions. Implementing the proposed standard would increase system costs about 2 percent.

EFFECTS OF INCREASING PANAMA CANAL TOLL RATES ON U.S. GRAIN EXPORTS AgEcon
Fuller, Stephen W.; Makus, Larry D.; Gallimore, William.
Some believe Panama Canal toll rates will increase dramatically as Panama's sovereignty over the Canal becomes complete at the end of this century. This paper focuses on the ability of Panama Canal management to extract additional toll revenues from United States grain traversing the Canal and the impact of increased toll rates on export grain flows. Analyses show toll rates established by a revenue-maximizing Canal management would exceed historical and current rates. A monopolizing Canal operator would have moderately increased Pacific port exports in the mid-1970’s; whereas, in the 1979-82 period, Pacific port flows would have exceeded historical levels.

EFFECTS OF PORT USER FEES ON EXPORT GRAIN FLOW PATTERNS AgEcon
Viscencio-Brambila, Hector; Fuller, Stephen W..
The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the effect of the proposed deep draft port user fee on export grain flow patterns and provide insight into potential marketing system adjustment costs which may result from diverted flows. A multiperiod, network flow model is used to conduct the analysis. Analyses show grain flow patterns to be affected most by a port specific fee which is based on weight. The annual variation in flows generated by imposition of port user charges in generally less than the historical year-to-year variation and, in most cases, the altered port area flows can be accommodated by existing infrastructure.

FACTORS AFFECTING FRESH POTATO PRICE IN SELECTED TERMINAL MARKETS AgEcon
Goodwin, Harold L., Jr.; Fuller, Stephen W.; Capps, Oral, Jr.; Asgill, Oladimagi W..
Monthly, quarterly, and annual cross-sectional and time-series data for the period 1982-85 were analyzed to identify factors affecting terminal market price for four types of fresh potatoes. Results indicated that state of origin, terminal market package type, and season of marketing were significant quality variables affecting price. Price differences among potato types because of season of marketing and stocks of fall potatoes were evident. These results suggest that cultivar selection, cultural practices, planting and harvesting schedules, packaging, and market selection – factors which are ultimately controlled by growers and grower/shippers – can be utilized effectively as mechanisms to increase price and expand markets.

IMPORT DEMANDS FOR U.S. FRESH GRAPEFRUIT: EFFECT OF U.S. PROMOTION PROGRAMS AND TRADE POLICIES OF IMPORTING NATIONS AgEcon
Fuller, Stephen W.; Bello, Haruna; Capps, Oral, Jr..
This study estimates import demands for U.S. fresh grapefruit in Japan, France, Canada, and the Netherlands. Historically, these nations have imported about 90 percent of U.S. grapefruit exports. Four import demand functions were specified and estimated by joint generalized least squares based on the sample period 1969I to 1988IV. Results show that U.S. FOB price, per capita income of importing countries, exchange rates, price of substitutes, U.S. grapefruit promotion programs, and removal of trade restrictions have had an important effect on U.S. fresh grapefruit exports. Analyses suggest that U.S. producers can effectively promote fresh grapefruit in foreign markets, and that trade concessions have an important influence on grapefruit exports.
