- Discussion papers (FOR) 
It is shown how a farmer can lock in a certain revenue by a combined trade in futures price and futures yield contracts, abstracting from production costs. An economic model is proposed for a combined price futures and yield futures market. Here we develop a set of pricing formulas, some of which are partially tested, using price data for area yield options from the Chicago Board of Trade.
