Abstract

The 1985 suspension of the prorate on California-Arizona navel oranges decreased FOB retail price spreads in Atlanta and San Francisco by about 1.3 cents per pound. Four reduced-form models of price spreads were estimated as seemingly unrelated regressions for price spreads in Atlanta, Dallas, and San Francisco. Nested and non-nested hypothesis testing procedures indicated a markup model as the most plausible one for explaining short-run changes in price spreads.
