Abstract:Growth and yield models are often composed of systems of related equations. Parameter estimation techniques such as two-stage and three-stage least squares have been suggested for fitting such systems. An alternative theoretically sound parameter estimation procedure that can be used for any number of sequentially related equations, linear and nonlinear, is presented and discussed. Implementation of this procedure is illustrated for two systems of equations. For. Sci 35(2):548-556.
