Decomposing Variability in Agricultural Prices

The Case of Selected Indian Agricultural Commodities

This paper was written while I was Fox International Fellow at Yale University and visiting scholar at the United States Department of Agriculture, Washington DC. I thank C P Chandrasekhar (Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi) and William Liefert (Senior Agriculture Economist, USDA) for conceptual feedback and guidance on the decomposition model used in the paper. I also thank an anonymous referee whose comments greatly helped in improving the presentation of the argument.
