Expert Answer

Step 1
  1. It is given that, the agricultural products are identical and there are many buyers and sellers of agriculture products in the market; therefore, the agricultural product market could be considered as a perfectly competitive market where the demand curve of an individual (each) seller is horizontal and the profit maximization condition could be obtained by equating the market price (P) of the agricultural products to the sellers’ marginal production cost (MC), i.e., P = MC. Further, at the point P =MC, the sellers’ average cost (AC) curve must be tangent to the market price line (which is same as the demand curve for agricultural products) and the MC must cut AC from its minimum point.
Step 2

2. The following diagrams depict the market equilibrium of an individual seller and the whole industry in the perfectly competitive market where the economic profits are zero.
