A study of the demand relationship between fixed-weight and random-weight citrus


  • Gao, Zhifeng
  • Lee, Jonq-Ying
  • Brown, Mark G.


Using Rotterdam demand system this study examines the demand relationships among four random-weight (FW) and fixed-weight citrus (RW). Results indicated that FW and RW grapefruit (and FW and RW oranges) are not substitutes; however, RW tangerine is a substitute of FW tangerines. In addition, promoting FW grapefruit would not influence the demand for RW grapefruit and vice versa. Promoting FW oranges (or FW tangerines) would decrease the demand for RW oranges (or RW tangerines) and vice versa.
