Richard F. Nehring

No 279426, 1982 Annual Meeting, August 1-4, Logan, Utah from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: A normalized restricted profit function is used to estimate profit and factor demand functions from farm-level cross sectional data for the winter rice crop in Bangladesh. The results indicate that output price is a more important and less expensive policy tool than fertilizer and irrigation price to influence output supply and resources allocation.
