Quality Measurement And Contract Design: An Example From Agriculture

Quality measurement will be used if on-farm production of ``quality'' is sufficiently cheap, and quality measurement sufficiently informative. We qualitatively test these predictions with empirical observation across fresh and processed commodities, and across regions for a single commodity.
