1 Table 1: Unit Root Tests KPSS Test Augmented Dickey-Fuller Test with Time Trend with Time Trend test statistic p-value test statistic Corn Soy Corn Soy Corn acreage Soy acreage Farmland Noncrop Corn yield Soy yield Supply Diffusion Index Supply Diffusion Index Demand Diffusion Index Demand Diffusion Index Notes: All tests use one lag. The null hypothesis of the ADF test is that the variable contains a unit root. The null hypothesis of the KPSS test is that the variable is trend stationary. A Phillips-Perron test with time trend gives similar results, as do ADF and PP tests without time trends. Exceptions are, where the null is (not surprisingly) not rejected in the tests without trends. The 5% critical value for the null hypothesis in the KPSS test with time trend is

2 response variable response variable Table 2.1: Forecast Error Variance Decompositions (One-Step Ahead) Scenario 1, impulse variable acreage Notes: Forecast error variance decomposition tells us the percentage of the forecasting error for a variable due to a specific shock at a given horizon. For instance, the estimate of.68 in the acreage column, row, tells us that shocks to acreage explain 6.8% of the one-step ahead forecast error in s. Note that, since this FEVD is structural, the shocks are orthogonalized. Table 2.2: Forecast Error Variance Decompositions (One-Step Ahead) Scenario 2, impulse variable 1 1 6E acreage non-crop Notes: Forecast error variance decomposition tells us the percentage of the forecasting error for a variable due to a specific shock at a given horizon. For instance, the estimate of.4 in the non-crop column, row, tells us that shocks to non-crop explain 4% of the one-step ahead forecast error in s. Note that, since this FEVD is structural, the shocks are orthogonalized. 2

For instance, the estimate of.86 in the acreage column, row, tells us that shocks to acreage explain 8.6% of the one-step ahead forecast error in s. Note that, since this FEVD is structural, the shocks are orthogonalized.

For instance, the estimate of.17 in the non-crop column, row, tells us that shocks to non-crop explain 1.7% of the one-step ahead forecast error in s.

Since the system is structural, the shocks are orthogonalized. The y-axis shows the change in the U.S. or bean, and the x-axis shows the period following the shock (which occurs in period zero). Confidence intervals are at the 95% level.

Since the system is structural, the shocks are orthogonalized. The cumulative IRF shows the path of the crop over time for repeated acreage shocks. The y-axis shows the change in the U.S. or bean, and the x-axis shows the period following the first shock (which occurs in period zero).

The rolling window estimation results are shown in gray. The same SVAR is estimated ten times, with 41 s included in each estimation (i.e., 1958 to 1998, 1959 to 1999, etc.). The y-axis shows the change in the U.S. or bean, and the x-axis shows the period following the shock (which occurs in period zero).
