Price discrimination in the international grain trade: the case of Canadian Wheat Board feed barley exports



Price discrimination in the international grain trade: the case of Canadian Wheat Board feed barley exports



Agribusiness New York 15(3): 313-322



This manuscript discusses the ongoing debate surrounding the involvement of the Canadian Wheat Board (CWB) in international trade. The ability of the CWB to price discriminate among feed barley export markets is tested for the 1980/81 to 1994/95 period. The study finds evidence of the ability of the CWB to price discriminate and shows that the magnitude and significance of price discrimination increased during the operation of the US Export Enhancement Program from 1985/86 to 1994/95.
