Example text

In addition to leisure, a household’s human capital services are potentially allocated each period to human capital production (L2t ), farm production (L3t ), and to wage work LW t . In addition to human capital services, the household’s production of human capital uses inputs purchased in the market (X2t ), and a time-invariant individual or household-specific genetic or innate ability factor (A2 ). This technology is assumed to exhibit decreasing returns to scale in production. Furthermore, K0 , the initial human capital endowment and A2 are different; including that A2 does not change over time.

The induced innovation model of invention and innovation calls for increases in fertilizer use by plants when the real price of fertilizer falls. Both rice and wheat GRMVs achieved higher fertilizer responsiveness by incorporating dwarfing genes in GRMV to forestall “lodging”. This did increase fertilizer responsiveness in most varieties. Chapter 53 documents the changes in fertilizer consumption as these changes took place. In 1961 fertilizer application rates were less than 10 kg per hectare in most crops.
