Returns To Limited Crop Diversification

Contents:

Author Info

  • Blank, Steven C.

Abstract

This study suggests a new single index model (SIM) application procedure which enables users to more easily assess the risk/return tradeoff among crop portfolios. A decision criterion is presented, based on a new crop portfolio performance measure derived here. The new procedure aids in reducing problems of data sensitivity often faced when using quadratic programming or standard SIM techniques.
