Abstract

This article analyzes the productivity growth in Korean agriculture with data on multiple crops, over the five years, from 1998 to 2002. Measurements are obtained from the estimation of a stochastic multi-output distance function. This study corrects for sample selection bias in the context of a translog functional form that appears when some farms produce only a subset of the potential outputs. The results find that technological change has caused a significant productivity change. Larger farms experience the highest rate of productivity growth by the greatest rate of scale effect. More human capital also leads higher productivity growth rates.
