Maize is a food field crop with a highly developed formal seed sector. The study reported here, involving 4 case studies in Malawi, Zambia, the state of Chiapas in Mexico and the state of Bihar in India, indicates that smallholder farmers are increasingly purchasing seed from the formal maize seed system in these different parts of the world. Point...

Malnutrition is a problem that affects human growth, development and general health, particularly on children under 5 years of age and pregnant women. In Mexico, low weight and height statistics reveal a decrease of 8 and 13.3 %, respectively, between 1988 and 2012. Despite public health interventions, the prevalence of low height continues to be a...

Rain-fed maize production in Mexico includes approximately 6 million hectares which variation in productivity represents huge challenges to meeting the sustainable intensification goals of the Sustainable Modernization of Traditional Agriculture (MasAgro) program. We use the information available from farmers participating in this program to invest...

A focus of agricultural research efforts in México is on breeding higher-yielding improved maize (Zea mays L.) varieties and enhancing farmer adoption of these varieties despite the fact that maize landraces continue to play a key role in the livelihoods of farmers. There are a number of reasons, not least the economic ones, behind the decision of...

Food quality ratings can be used for product differentiation and strategic marketing. This article develops a differentiation measure based on the cross-entropy of two distributions for speciality coffees. It examines whether quality ratings achieve their objectives for speciality coffee supply chains. The estimation, using e-auctions data, indicat...
Article
Supply relationships and e-auctions are complementary procurement forms that specialty coffee roasters can utilize when designing a procurement strategy. We model the roasters’ optimal choices of procurement strategies using an extended newsvendor model. By comparing the optimal strategies in a benchmark case solely based on relationships to a case...
Article
Full-text available
We analyze the price determinants of specialty coffees traded at e-auctions. We hypothesize that since specialty coffees are a highly differentiated product, prices will be determined by both sensory and reputation attributes. To test our hypotheses, we estimate a hedonic price function using data from Central and South American e-auctions and calc...

The US specialty coffee industry has grown from $1 billion in 1990 to $11 billion in 2006 and is expected to continue to grow into the foreseeable future. This growth particularly depends on prices coordinating the specialty coffee supply chain through two-way information exchange between roasters and producers. We analyze the determinants of speci...
Article

We analyze price and quality information at the procurement level in the specialty coffee supply chain using data from small and large volume e-auctions. Hedonic price equations reveal that the Cup of Excellence auction is a more differentiated market disclosing more information about coffee values associated with ratings, rankings, quantities avai...
Article
Full-text available
We apply the hedonic technique to specialty coffees traded at the Cup of Excellence electronic auction. The hedonic model includes sensory and reputation variables. We discuss the significance and value of the coefficient estimates in the context of this evolving industry.
