Interactions of Technological Change in Australian Agriculture: An Aggregative Programming Analysis

In this paper an extension of the work previously undertaken using the Aggregative Programming Model of Australian Agriculture for the analysis of the effects on Australian agriculture of changes in productivity is described. The impact of four specific improvements in technology, two in the sheep sector and one each of the beef and wheat sectors, are analyzed both separately and in combination. The rates of productivity growth resulting from the technological changes are measured both nationally and by State. Results are presented showing net farm income by State and for all Australia, as well as agricultural output for all Australia.
