The Effect Of Government Programs On Acreage Response Over Time: The Case Of Corn Production In Iowa
AbstractCorn acreage response in Iowa is examined using a time-varying parameter regression model. Separate estimates of the permanent portion of the parameter vector are obtained for each year over the period 1957-82. The estimated elasticities are grouped into Â“programÂ” and Â“nonprogramÂ” periods. The results indicate corn acreage response is more own-price elastics, and the elasticity is less variable under government acreage control programs than under a Â“nonprogramÂ” regime. The assumption of parameter constancy is shown to be inappropriate for modeling Iowa corn acreage response over time.
