Simulated Agribusiness.
Salisbury, Howard G., III
"Simulated Agribusiness" is designed to provide the student with a role playing situation dealing with the complexities and problems of modern agriculture. It is a competitive game played on a hypothetical mid-latitude diversified farm in a capitalistic system. The player is faced with a series of decisions which will determine his success or failure, such as land acquisition, crop selection, optional investment, soil bank, crop insurance, and commodity features. Rules and examples of these decisions are described. The decision-making process is discussed, along with techniques for adjusting the game to students of varying levels of sophistication. Tables indicate hypothetical expenses, yield per acre, prices, yield and price variations, and disasters. A financial sheet is provided to simplify organization and computation. A teaching package accompanies the game. (Author/KSM)
