Summary
High oleic soybeans (HOS) are soybeans recently developed to improve the fatty acid profile of soybeans oils in order to make them healthier for human consumption and more cost effective to process. HOS need to be segregated from commodity grain at the farm and through the rest of the food chain so that high oleic soybeans and oils do not get commingled with their bulk counterpart. Production at the farm is typically governed by contractual arrangements between farmers and buyers of HOS to make certain that famers implement adequate segregation measures during production, storage and transportation. A few of this high oleic soybean programs have been put in place last years in restricted location of the United Stated Midwest. These programs are likely to expend in the future, but little is currently known about the constraint and factors influencing farmers' participation HOS programs. The aim of thesis is to provide information about grower preferences for the key contracts attributes used in governing the production of HOS soybeans. These attributes are premium levels, delivery windows, distance to buyer, thresholds and HOS brand names. The methodology consisted of a choice experiment survey administered to a random sample of growers over the internet. Results indicated that premium levels, delivery options and the distance to buyer are attributes that significantly influence growers' willingness to participate in HOS programs. In particular, growers are willing-to-accept (WTA) about $0.12/bushel less of a premium if a harvest delivery (HD) option rather than a buyer's call (BC) delivery option is given
