Sample text

Once fertilizer has been applied, a farmer no longer has control over application levels. The input that was previously classified as variable becomes fixed. Seed before planting is classified as a variable input. Once it is planted in the ground, seed can no longer be treated as a variable input. Some production economists have argued that inputs should not be arbitrarily categorized as either fixed or variable. These arbitrary categories can be highly misleading. Production economists argue that in the case of crop production, prior to planting, nearly all inputs are variable.

The second derivative of the production function is the first derivative of the MPP function, or slope of the MPP function. The second derivative (d2y/dx2 or fO(x) or f2) is obtained by again differentiating the production function. 37 is positive for a particular value of x, then MPP is increasing at that particular point. A negative sign indicates that MPP is decreasing at that particular point. If fO(x) is zero, MPP is likely at a maximum at that point. 4, the first derivative of the MPP function (second derivative of the TPP function) is positive in (a), (b), and (c), (l), (m),and (n); negative in (e), (f), (g), (h), (i), and (j), and zero in (d) and (k).

If the length of time were sufficient to do this, the land input might be treated as a variable input. The categorization of inputs as either fixed or variable is closely intertwined with the concept of time. Economists sometimes define the long run as time of sufficient length such that all inputs to the production function can be treated as variable. The very short run can be defined as a period of time so short that none of the inputs are variable. Other lengths of time can also be defined. For example, the short run is a period of time long enough such that a few of the inputs can be treated as variable, but most are fixed.
