Abstract

A linear programming technique is used to decompose agricultural factor productivity change in China's provinces during the period 1985 to 1994. The method allows the decomposition of productivity growth into two mutually exclusive and exhaustive parts: technological change and changes in pure technical efficiency. The decomposition provides a natural way to differentiate innovations from catching up phenomena in China's agriculture.
