(Hebrew). Off-farm work and capital accumulation decisions of farmers over the life-cycle: the role of heterogeneity and state dependence. Both state dependence and heterogeneity lead to the same conclusion, that off-farm labor supply and farm capital are negatively associated. However, the heterogeneity model implies that farmers at the higher end of the ability distribution are able to both work off the farm and maintain a capitalintensive farm enterprise. We estimate jointly three types of discrete-choice labor decisions of farm couples: farm work, off-farm work, and hired farm labor. Using a choice multinomial logit model, we find that operators' and spouses' farm labor are substitutes. Hired farm labor increases with farmers' qualifications, perhaps substituting for the couples' labor inputs.

  An intertemporal model in which farm capital accumulation and work choices by a single‐agent farm household are interdependent is developed and tested using a farm‐level data set. Estimation is done using a recursive two‐step simultaneous censored equations model. The results of this study are of relevance for an understanding of structural change within the agricultural sector as they Cited by: By Over The Life-Cycle, Avner Ahituv and Ayal Kimhi Abstract This paper aims to construct an empirical model for the analysis of two principal simultaneous decisions of farm operators: participation in the off-farm labor market, and the amount of resources to invest in farm capital. Self-employment was the dominant (%) off-farm work. Full-time participants were mainly (%) in non-agricultural wage employment. Participants with off-farm work experience of 14–19 years were mostly (%) in self-employment, while % of the farmers with off-farm work experience of 26–33 years were in agricultural wage.

Hence, off-farm work is seen to divert critical resources away from the farm sector.   The measure will, also, keep small-scale farmers back on the farm to sustain food production for the populace.
