Abstract
This study is aimed to investigate which factors can impact regional agricultural output. We use 120 county-level data to do regression analysis of Chinese agriculture in Shanxi province. The result shows that rainfall, tractors, fertilizers usage, proportion of irrigated land all have significant impact on total agricultural output. In addition, this production function is not constant returns to scale. The econometric results also suggest that in order to increase the agricultural output in Shanxi province, the most efficient way is to increase the fertilizer usage and irrigated farmland. This study is very helpful for public policy to improve agricultural efficiency in Shanxi providence of China.
