Modeling Supply Response in a Multiproduct Framework

Abstract

The paper models multiproduct supply response in agriculture and tests key assumptions traditionally maintained in supply response studies. The technology is approximated by a restricted profit function. The properties of the restricted profit function are imposed during estimation. The hypothesis that maintains the existence of output price and quantity indexes that satisfy the adding-up property is rejected. The existence of individual production functions for each output is also rejected. Unless joint production is permitted, the estimates of responsiveness of a particular commodity to changes in own price or prices of competing outputs are likely to be considerably understated.
