Abstract: Several shortcomings are noted in previous studies of the aggregate demand for farm tractors, including the measurement of the cost of capital and capacity depreciation. Empirical results presented in this study show that net investment regressions based upon the USDA's capital series are inferior to those based upon engineering data.
