Resource use efficiency in rubber estates: a methodological note


Chew, Tek Ann (1988) Resource use efficiency in rubber estates: a methodological note. The Malaysian Journal of Agricultural Economics, 5. pp. 15-19. ISSN 0127-7685


A barrier to the successful use of formal production function / regression techniques to analyse latex production problems in rubber estates is the difficulty in standardising data from different tapping systems. It is proposed in this paper that this problem can be overcome by using the "total surface area of the tapping cut" as the standardisation variable. We advance various arguments to show the merits in this proposal.
