Abstract

The grain management program component (GMP) in the Korean Agricultural Sector Simulation Model being developed under the Michigan State University contract is designed to be an instrument through which researchers and policy makers can evaluate the impacts of proposed alternative grain management policies and programs. Particular emphasis is placed on the time dimension of flows and stock levels in the marketing system from producer (and import point) to final consumer; time periods throughout the various submodels in the component are 1/40 of the grain marketing year. Less emphasis is placed upon the form and place utilities generated by the marketing system in response to consumers' demands. Place utility is reflected through market position (farm, country point, consumer market point levels) and at least potentially through the three-area disaggregation contained in the overall KASS Model. Form utility is reflected through market preferences for the different food grain products, and perhaps for the native varieties of rice compared to IRRI-667 rice. The GMP component deals specifically with the three major food grains, and the consumer products derived from them, in Korea. In order of importance these are rice, barley and wheat, corn, grain sorghum and other feed grains are not included. Until the livestock component is developed little purpose would be served in including feed grains in the GMP component, because Korea policy makers view food grain policies separately from those affecting feed grains.
