Chapter 6: Accounting for nutrient pollution in measuring agricultural total factor productivity: a study of OECD economies
This chapter proposes environmental efficiency measures for agricultural production where nitrogen and phosphorus effluents and greenhouse gas emissions are notable environmental stresses. These environmental efficiency measures are based on the principle of materials balance and are used to construct environmental Malmquist total factor productivity (TFP) indices. The chapter illustrates one application using panel data from 32 OECD economies covering 17 years from 1992 to 2008.
