Agricultural Productivity Growth in Indonesia

Growth rates of productivity have often been measured by using average value added by specified inputs (e.g., see David and Barker; and Ban). Also, a production function often has also been used to estimate input weights necessary in aggregation (e.g., see Griliches; and Hertford). This average productivity approach is quite demanding in terms of data. The concept of value added in a restricted profit function, proposed by Bruno, provides an alternative for measuring and analyzing productivity growth. Lesser data requirements make this approach particularly appropriate in developing countries.
