The Research on Total Factor Productivity of Soybean in China

Chen Yuanchun(Business School, Zhengzhou University of Industrial Technology)


This paper uses the panel stochastic frontier model to study the total factor productivity of Chinese soybean. The research shows that the impact of direct cost and labor cost on yield is positive and significant, the impact of indirect cost on yield is not significant, and the impact of cash cost on yield improvement is negative.
