1 Table 1: Unit Root Tests KPSS Test Augmented DickeyFuller Test with Time Trend with Time Trend test statistic pvalue 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 PhillipsPerron 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 (OneStep 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 onestep ahead forecast error in s. Note that, since this FEVD is structural, the shocks are orthogonalized.

Since the system is structural, the shocks are orthogonalized. The yaxis shows the change in the U.S. or bean, and the xaxis 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 yaxis shows the change in the U.S. or bean, and the xaxis shows the period following the first shock (which occurs in period zero).
