By combining information from microeconomics, mathematics, production functions, and temporal and spatial related production analyses, this book provides a variety of essential information to agricultural economics, economics, and business students. Empirical application of production theory and technique is presented at great length; actual data collected from various agricultural enterprises and experiments are used for production function analyses; and methodological and statistical problems commonly encountered in empirical research are carefully addressed.
This book fulfills two great needs in the agricultural economics profession: a textbook suitable for senior-level and graduate students that develops and illustrates how calculus and linear algebra can be used in understanding production economics; and for a scholarly work that illustrates empirical applications and results of production function analyses and production theory.
