Abstract

An attempt is made to combine, empirically, the estimation of product transformation surfaces with the more conventional methods of linear supply analysis. This synthetic approach is used to fit simultaneously a system of six aggregate supply functions. The products covered account for more than 70 per cent of the gross value of Australian rural production.
