Measurement Of Total Factor Productivity For The Malaysian Rice Sector
AbstractOur main objective in undertaking this empirical study was to investigate the sources of malaysia rice farming growth or total factor productivity (TFP) for the 1980-1990 period. For this reason we estbilished a theory of production and secondly, to disentangle the sources of TFP growth into scale and technology change effects. In pursuing this objective a translog cost function, the latest methodology framework to measure production technology, was employed. the main finding of this study was that with reference to all farming classifications, the sources of TFP growth for the 1980-1990 period showed that the source from technological change effects far outweighed the source from scale effects.
