No 284175, 1978 Annual Meeting, August 6-9, Blacksburg, Virginia from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: Pooled data from 14 large corn producing countries for 13 years show that the corn-nitrogen price ratio, as well as physical factors and technology, account for a significant part of corn yield differences among countries. Policies which distort corn and fertilizer prices have a significant effect on corn yields.
