Climate Impact on Agricultural Productivity: Analysis on counties in Nebraska along the 41st parallel.

Using linear programming data envelope analysis (DEA) I studied the impact that high temperatures have over the agricultural performance of counties in Nebraska. I have found that the incidence of high temperatures is no uniform for all the counties. There is an important negative incidence of temperatures over 32° Celsius during the growing season over agricultural performance on most counties, but for some counties this incidence is not significant.
