Marketing Farm Grain Crops.
Ridenour, Harlan E.
This vocational agriculture curriculum on grain marketing contains three parts: teacher guide, student manual, and student workbook. All three are coordinated and cross-referenced. The course is designed to give students of grain marketing a thorough background in the subject and provide practical help in developing grain marketing strategies for their own corn, soybean, and wheat crops. The teacher guide is designed to assist the teacher in guiding students in use of the manual. It also repeats questions from the workbook, provides the appropriate reference for each (with page numbers) in the student manual, and usually suggests an answer. Transparency masters are included at the end of each chapter and recommended when appropriate to support the study. Solutions to workbook problems are presented. The student manual contains five chapters: fundamentals of grain marketing; grain delivery, grading, and storage; kinds of grain markets; marketing alternatives; and developing a grain production and marketing plan. A glossary and 28 references are appended. The workbook poses questions designed to guide students through their study of grain marketing and provides space for answering the questions as well as completing exercises. It presents numerous problems that illustrate grain marketing points. (YLB)
