Relation suppliers/demanders during transaction

The research objective is to get insight in the variation of relation between suppliers and demanders on two agricultural markets.

Approach

Profit margins in the agricultural sector are relatively small compared to other chain participants. It is of public interest that markets are functioning efficiently. One of the choices made by suppliers and demanders is the form of transaction (spot market --- full integration). 

Results

The result is a concise report that gives insight in the functioning of agricultural markets (transaction mechanisms) in two selected chains, and the effects that a choice for a type of mechanism has on results.
