    Price Soybeans ability Soybeans Price China 100 40 1 5 U.S. 1 40 500 5 (1) According to this case China can product 100 kilos of precious metals and 1 kills of soybeans per day and the U.S. can produce 1 kilo of Precious Metals and 500 kilos of soybeans per day. We can easily calculate that the opportunity cost for China to only produce 1 kilo precious metals is 1/100=0.01 kilo of soybeans. The U.S.’s opportunity cost for only product 1 kilo precious metals is 500/1=500 kilos of soybeans per kilo

    impact on crop demand as well (Haile et al. 2014). It also mentions that an increase of output prices acts as a signal for farmers to increase cropland acreage (Haile et al. 2014). Soybean crop acres planted vary more as compared with other crops. Moreover, global corn acreage planted increases in exchange with soybean acreage (Haile et al. 2014). Output price acts differently with national-level crop acreage decisions than that of global-level crop acreage decisions. National-level harvesting and

    Often a common question is whether the production of GM foods is a solution to the food crisis or a disaster in the making. First off GMO (genetically modified organism) is the result of a laboratory process where genes from the DNA of one species are extracted and artificially forced into the genes of an unrelated plant or animal. The foreign genes may come from bacteria, viruses, insects, animals or even humans. So essentially it is taking food, modifying food using a gene that solves an obstacle

    Explanation is key; we will use these examples and explain how Price of Elasticity of Demand is used: If the demand for corn increases due to its use as an alternative energy source, what will happen to the supply of corn's substitute such as soybean? What will happen to the price of corn oil? How does the price elasticity of

In addition, the quality of the purchased soybean is not guaranteed because of the unscientific inspection procedure of the CA. These problems are the motivation that drives the innovative change of the traditional supply chain. Reorganized Soybean Supply Chain The new supply chain is aimed to direct both physical
