SANCHEZ MORENO, Edgar Arturo et al. Sawnwood production functions in the Community Forest Enterprise in Mexico. Rev. mex. de cienc. forestales [online]. 2021, vol.12, n.67, pp.109-129.  Epub Oct 25, 2021. ISSN 2007-1132.

Three production models for sawnwood were generated in 35 Community Forest Companies (CFEs) located in 10 states of México, which were classified based on variables related to: production inputs, continuous variables, and nominal variables that affect productivity. For Model I the variables L and K were highly significant (p-value <0.001). Variables L and VD in model II were highly significant and variable K was significant at 0.16 % (p-value <0.05). The CA, CM, CI, PO and PTD variables had no effect on productivity. For model III, high significance was obtained for the variables L and VD (p-value <0.001), K was significant at 0.95 % (p-value <0.01), Figura Legal Privada (FL2) and Figura Legal Sociedad (FL3) were significant at 0.1 % (p-value <0.001) and 2.9 % (p -value <0.05), respectively. Competitiveness in the use of resources was measured with the Marginal Product Value (MPV). The hypothesis of non-competitive use for input L in model II (0.1 %) was rejected. For Model III, Ho Pmg L -P L = 0 was rejected in the CFEs located in the states of Oaxaca and Quintana Roo (p-value <0.05) and Ho: Pmg K -P K = 0 was rejected for the CFEs located in Chiapas and Oaxaca (p-value <0.01). Finally, the MPV for VD in models II and III using aggregated data at the national level Ho: Pmg VD -P VD = 0 was rejected (p-value <0.001).

Keywords : Competitiveness; Cobb-Douglas function; econometric model; productivity; performance to scale; marginal revenue product.
