Abstract

This paper examined the structure of farm production for Malaysia's most important agricultural commodity, palm oil, over a 30-year period (1970-2000). Specifically, this study analyzed how the share of land factor and technical progress to oil palm output growth changed over time using the Cooley-Prescott (C-P) time-varying parameter model. Policy implications on oil palm growth sustainability are offered.
