No 279468, 1982 Annual Meeting, August 1-4, Logan, Utah from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: This study is based on time-series data, 1921-75, covering the Canadian Prairies on a crop-district basis. The modified Fourier and regression analyses are used to measure the impact of weather and technology on grain yields. The significant importance of resource inputs, technology and weather in affecting crop yields is analyzed.
