Farm marketing decisions are made in a risky environment. Reliable information about prices and the resulting outcome distribution for different decision alternatives is useful in the decisionmaking process. The objective of this research is to better understand the usage of market information by cash grain farmers. Results of a 1987 survey of Ohio commercial farmers are reported. Logit analysis is utilized to determine factors associated with manager perceptions of the adequacy of marketing information sources currently used by the farmer.
