    Abstract

    This study estimates the effects of agricultural credit, especially a fertilizer loan, by utilizing original survey data collected before and after the policy change. We apply the fixed-effects method to account for the endogeneity that occurs when the farmer-specific unobserved heterogeneity correlates with the amount of loan. The result indicates that the quantitative effects of a fertilizer loan on dry-season rice cultivated areas (DRCAs) are small. This suggests that the elimination of the fertilizer loan may have little effect on DRCAs.
