INPUT-OUTPUT RELATIONSHIPS AMONG SELECTED INTELLECTUAL INVESTMENTS IN AGRICULTURE.
CVANCARA, JOSEPH GEORGE
DATA WERE COLLECTED ON TWO GROUPS OF FARM UNITS IN 20 MINNESOTA COMMUNITIES TO DETERMINE PRODUCTION UNIT RESPONSE TO EDUCATIONAL INVESTMENT, AND STUDY CUMULATIVE OR DIMINISHING EFFECTS ON CASH INCOME INCREASES CAUSED BY FARM MANAGEMENT INSTRUCTION OVER 3 YEARS. GROUPS WERE PAIRED ON THE BASIS OF 1962 RECORDS ACCORDING TO SIZE MEASURED IN WORK UNITS AND ON THE COMBINATION OF LIVESTOCK AND CROP ENTERPRISES. ONE GROUP HAD PARTICIPATED IN THE MINNESOTA FARM MANAGEMENT PROGRAM DURING 1960-62. CASH INCOME WAS THE CRITERION VARIABLE USED TO EVALUATE THE EFFECT OF SEVERAL PREDICTIVE VARIABLES. STATISTICAL TECHNIQUES INCLUDED THE T-TEST, ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE, AND MULTIPLE CORRELATION AND REGRESSION TECHNIQUES. ANALYSES DETERMINED WHETHER INCREASES IN OUTPUT OF FARM MANAGEMENT ENROLLEES EXCEEDED COMMUNITY INPUT COSTS FOR CONDUCTING THE PROGRAM. FARM MANAGEMENT ENROLLEES HAD OVER $500.00 HIGHER INCOME THAN NON-ENROLLEE FARMERS. IMPROVEMENT IN INCOME WAS SUBJECT TO A DIMINISHING RETURN EFFECT. THERE WERE INCREASES IN INCOME OVER A 3-YEAR PERIOD, WITH GREATEST INCREASES DURING THE SECOND YEAR AND A HIGHER RATE OF INCREASE FOR FARMS IN THE FARM MANAGEMENT PROGRAM. THIS PH.D. THESIS, SUBMITTED TO UNIVERSITY OF MINNESOTA, IS AVAILABLE AS 65-7761 FOR $3.00 ON MICROFILM AND FOR $6.20 AS XEROXED COPY FROM UNIVERSITY MICROFILMS, INC., 300 NORTH ZEEB ROAD, ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN 48106.
