    The agronomic production function approach begins with the primary correlation between climate and crop production. Via studies, agronomists have adjusted models which forecast the produce of specific crops determined by weather patterns. These imitation models have long been utilized to forecast changes in produce for specific crops. The results from these models is then integrated into an economic model of farmer behavior, which in turn leads to a partial equilibrium model of the farm sector.…
