Quantitative Management Practice

a.    Find the maximum value of C below which the farmer should insulate his crop to limit the damagefrom the unusually cold weather.
b.     Set C equal to the value identified in part a. Perform sensitivity analysis to determine under what conditions, if any, the farmer would be better off not spraying his grapefruit trees and taking his chances in spite of the threat to his crop.
c.     Suppose that C equals $25,000, and in addition to this protection, the farmer can purchase insurance on the crop. Discuss possibilities for reasonable insurance policies and how much they would be worth to the farmer. You can assume that the insurance is relevant only if the farmer purchases the protection, and you can decide on the terms of the insurance policy.
