Agricultural Growth and Productivity Change

Part of the Studies in the Economies of East and South East Asia book series


This chapter presents estimates of aggregated production, the use of productive resources and productivity change in Indonesian agriculture. Quantification allows an assessment of the magnitude of changes in agricultural production, which is not possible in a discussion of the production of individual commodities. The approach enables a more precise assessment of the development experience. The methods of measuring productivity change and the theoretical foundations of growth accounting have been widely debated. Growth accounting has proven to be a useful instrument for the determination of phases of macroeconomic development. It is now extensively used in the analysis of long-term agricultural growth in several Asian countries, but has rarely been used to assess long-term growth in Indonesia.
