Abstract
Technology contributes to the modern economic development directly and indirectly, and it changes the operating system and working method during the economic transformation. Along with institutional reform and modern economic structural transformation of China, agriculture still plays an ineradicable role in the development of Chinese economy, and it is the cornerstone for countries with large population.

In this paper, the main purpose is to study how technology spillover effects work on agricultural productivity. In order to solve this question, I focus on two aspects, the one is from R&D perspective, and the other is the improvement of actual agricultural production techniques. This paper investigates the question by empirical... (More)
Technology contributes to the modern economic development directly and indirectly, and it changes the operating system and working method during the economic transformation. Along with institutional reform and modern economic structural transformation of China, agriculture still plays an ineradicable role in the development of Chinese economy, and it is the cornerstone for countries with large population.

In this paper, the main purpose is to study how technology spillover effects work on agricultural productivity. In order to solve this question, I focus on two aspects, the one is from R&D perspective, and the other is the improvement of actual agricultural production techniques. This paper investigates the question by empirical analysis, and I collect panel data from three statistical yearbooks of China. The datasets consist of annul data from 1992 to 2013 and cross-sectional data of 30 regions of China, the statistical package Eviews will be employed to generate empirical results.

There are four models in my paper, the first three models are set to study the puzzle directly based on the hypotheses, and the last one is a modified model after some necessary tests. The results show that technology has different spillover effects on agricultural productivity in different aspects, even though some variables are insignificant in explaining the model. (Less)
