Dynamic Factor Demands for Aggregate Southeastern United States Agriculture

Timothy G. Taylor and Michael J. Monson

Southern Journal of Agricultural Economics, 1985, vol. 17, issue 2, 9

Abstract: A four equation input demand system for aggregate Southeastern United States agriculture consistent with dynamic optimizing behavior is specified and estimated. Labor and materials are considered as variable inputs while land and capital are treated as quasi-fixed inputs. It is found that the adjustment rates for capital and land differ considerably and are interdependent. Further, the data appear consistent with the existence of an aggregate production technology and the hypothesized optimizing behavior.
