Supply Response of Cereals in Iran: An Auto-Regressive Distributed Lag Approach

S.M. Fahimifard and M.S. Sabouni

Supply response to commodity price is a core issue of agricultural economics. This study quantifies the responsiveness of Iranian producers of wheat, barley and corn to incentives using an Auto-Regressive Distributed Lag (ARDL) approach. This method simultaneously estimates the long-run and short-run patterns and removes the resulted problems of variables elimination and autocorrelation. It is found that: Firstly, there is insignificant long-run and short-run guaranteed own price elasticity for all crop types. Secondly, 1% increase in yield risk will decrease the wheat, barley and corn's planted area 5.92, 4.98 and 6.09%, respectively. Finally, the wheat and barley planters supply response to 1% increase in amount of rain in millimeters during the early months of the season is 4.76 and 3.79%, respectively.
