Abstract
This paper estimates the implicit prices of the physical and intrinsic characteristics of soybeans exported by the United States. It provides a couple of basic pieces of information. First, the U.S. grades and standards assigned to a shipment do provide information valued by the market. Second, in Japan there are two identifiable soybean markets - a premium food bean market and a crushing market. The soybeans going into the food market for processing can be identified by their lower oil content, lower percentage of split and damaged beans, and a lower amount of foreign material. as well as smaller shipment sizes. The soybeans which have characteristics which satisfy those demanded in the food bean market are bid into that market.
