R,D&E: Implications to TFP
R,D&E: Implications to TFP
SRFrancisco, MJMariano, RDAcda,ATCastaneda

TFP is an important indicator in measuring the productivity of the economy\u2026
it is basically the residual source of growth after accounting for the
contribution of the different factors of prodn such as labor & capital\u2026
captures the contribution of technological advances and of other factors that
improve the overall efficiency of the economy

Several studies have analyzed the agricultural TFP in developing countries

(Hayami and Ruttan 1970; Kawagoe, et al 1985; Kawagoe, and Hayami
1985, Thomas, and Wang 1996; Trueblood 1996; Fulginiti, and Perrin 1993,
1997, and 1998; Nin, et al 2003; Rao and Coelli 2003) found that agriculture

in most of developing countries including the Philippines experienced
technical regression from 1960 to 1980.

low productivity performance has been attributed by some to economic
policy\u2026other possible factors maybe environmental degradation such as
depletion of soil micronutrients arising from land-use intensification (Nin, et

al 2003; Umetsu, et al 2003; Bouis 1993; Pingali, 1992).
