conclusion 1
Conclusion (1)
  • CUSTA has had a significant influence on trade flow of agricultural goods, mainly Canadian exports to the United States.
conclusion 2
Conclusion (2)
  • Trade flows of livestock and livestock products are influenced by exchange rate between the two countries and price differences, while those of wheat and barley are influenced by not only exchange rate and price differences, but also quality of U.S. grain, the EEP, and Canadian rail subsidies.
conclusion 3
Conclusion (3)
  • Canadian exports of grain and livestock to the U.S. have negatively affected U.S. price of grain and livestock, but the price effects are not significant for all agricultural goods except wheat and pork.
