Integration in the EU wheat and barley markets is studied using monthly price series for the 1980-1994 period. The methodology expands previous work on cointegration modeling by testing market integration constraints on the cointegration space; these tests are also supplemented with an evaluation of the short-run dynamics by testing for causality and calculating forecast-error variance decompositions. This adds to previous work which have suggested that cointegration is a necessary but not sufficient condition for market integration. Results are consistent with the self-sufficiency nature of cereal markets in the EU. Prices appear to follow each other in the long-run with more than one stochastic trend. France exerts
