IP rights for horticultural plants. We re-examine the role of IP rights pertaining to plant innovations and assesses the economic consequences of IP rights for plants by analyzing their impacts on plant values using the hedonic price framework. A

This study quantifies the discounts and premiums associated with various quality factors for processing apples (Malus domestica Borkh.). Discounts and premiums were estimated using a hedonic price model and quality data from a total of 137 samples representing three processing apple cultivars (45 `York Imperial', 43 `Rome Beauty', and 49 `Golden Delicious'). Price discounts in the sample were statistically significant for fruit size, bruising, bitter pit, decay, misshapen apples, and internal breakdown. Commonly cited defects, such as insect damage and apple scab, did not cause significant price discounts.

methodologies. First, we use a hedonic pricing model to estimate the relationship between ‘Honeycrisp’ quantities and prices by size category. This information was used to assess potential changes in grower returns as the grower shifts production toward certain
variety to maintain price premiums and profit margins. Gallardo et al. (p. 575) estimated the impact of inadequate crop load management on grower profits using two methodologies: hedonic pricing model and price incentive compatible experimental auction
