Robert J. Hauser, Barry Parker

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Exports of US grain via ocean vessel are discussed in terms of potential impediments and research issues. Five general areas are examined: (1) ocean‐freight rate risk; (2) grain quality; (3) export and import ports; (4) cargo preference; and (5) the Panama Canal. It is concluded that the most important research issue at the present time involves the costs and benefits of developing import‐port facilities.
