A strong test of the von Liebig hypothesis
AbstractAn implication of the von Liebig hypothesis is that crop-production functions have right-angle isoquants. This article presents a nonparametric estimation of right-angle isoquant production functions. It then describes a new test for right-angle isoquants. The procedures are used to test experimental data on corn and wheat. Copyright 2000, Oxford University Press.
