Course Description

01-2401/2 Economics of the Canadian Food System F(3-2)/W(3-2) [1.00]

A four-module, two-semester course that introduces students to the major aspects of agricultural economics and business. The course is based on the notion of a consumer driven economy for food and non-food products; how this is affected by international trade and domestic agricultural policies; and how in turn these affect resource use and farm/firm management decisions. The four components are: 1) prices, production and marketing; 2) agricultural policy and international trade; 3) resources and the environment; 4) farm management and finance. This is a two-semester course. When you select it you will be assigned to 01-2401 in the Fall semester and 01-2402 in the Winter semester. A grade will not be assigned to 01-2401 until 01-2402 has been completed.

Corequisites: 36-274 or 89-204.
