Non-Parametric Environmental Adjusted Productivity (Eap) Measures: Nebraska Agriculture Sector


  • Shaik, Saleem
  • Perrin, Richard K.


Traditional Total factor productivity [TFP] misrepresents the true change in agricultural productivity because environmental bads jointly produced with desirable outputs are unaccounted. Nonparametric measures incorporating environmental bads support the hypothesis that prior [after] to 1980's the traditional TFP overstate [understate] production growths, reflecting peak use of chemicals.
