An Empirical Analysis Of A Marketing Order Referendum For A Specialty Crop


  • Mixon, Bobby
  • Turner, Steven C.
  • Centner, Terence J.


Specialty crop producersÂ’ marketing problem, associated with lack of quality standards and advertising revenues, may detract from profitability. Although marketing orders, approved by producer referenda, offer a means to address these problems, institutional rules can make ratification difficult. In this study, economic structure was found to be more important than producer characteristics in explaining voter behavior in a Georgia Vidalia onions marketing order referendum.
