Publication Detail
JPD 1981 Vol. VIII Nos. 1&2-b: An Analysis of Fertilizer Policies in the Philippines

The Philippines does not have a comparative advantage in the domestic production of fertilizer. This is one of the thoughts conveyed by the article as it analyzes the government policies affecting fertilizer prices during the post-war period, with a focus on the policies after 1973. In addition, there has been no attempt to relate the distribution of protection to the efficiency of firms. Upon analysis, the study predicts that only efficient firms would survive so that the subsidies given to inefficient firms can be allocated to economic activities that will raise the profitability of agriculture.
