Abstract:

Productivity growth for the agricultural sectors of the 17 Spanish regions over the period 1977-88 is studied using non-parametric programming techniques. Productivity changes based on conventional inputs are linked to other economic, geographic and institutional issues. Average technical change in the Spanish regions grew at an annual rate of 2.9%, but with great regional variation. This paper presents a clear characterization of areas with greater technical progress, and the regions with technical regress.
