Abstract

The industrialization of the food system is proceeding at a rapid rate and contracting is a key element in that industrialization. The purposes of this paper are to summarize contract terms in agricultural contracts for major commodities and to assess the determinants of variations in contract prices/fees in selected commodity contracts, with an emphasis on the nonprice contract terms.
