Ray D. Bollman
No 284173, 1978 Annual Meeting, August 6-9, Blacksburg, Virginia from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)
The concept of a kinked demand for labour curve is developed to analyse the phenomenon of off-farm work by farmers. The implications of this concept for studies in the agricultural sector are presented. Results of a linear, probit and logit probability response model to explain the probability of an operator participating in off-farm work are presented and the implications of the results are discussed.
