One problem commonly encountered when analysing multiproduct-multifactor firms is the lack of activity-specific input data. The present study contributes to the empirical literature on production functions by presenting an information theoretic approach to estimating production functions in the absence of activity-specific input allocations. Role of transgenic plants in agriculture and biopharming. Since s, the major emphasis of agricultural biotechnology can be found on traits for improvement in crops related to insect and herbicide resistance, nutritional quality, virus resistance, shelf life, and biofuel production. food supply and need for extensive processing Cited by:
