  • 3. AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTIVITY • Agricultural productivity is measured as the ratio of agricultural outputs to agricultural inputs. • Output is usually measured as the market value of final output, which excludes intermediate products such as corn feed used in the meat industry • This output value may be compared to many different types of inputs such as labour and land (yield). These are called partial measures of productivity. • Agricultural productivity may also be measured by what is termed total factor productivity (TFP). • This method of calculating agricultural productivity compares an index of agricultural inputs to an index of outputs. • This measure of agricultural productivity was established to remedy the shortcomings of the partial measures of productivity , notably that it is often hard to identify the factors cause them to change. • Changes in TFP are usually attributed to technological improvements.
  • 4. Mechanization Fertilizers High yielding varieties Irrigation Liming Pesticides
  • 5. Factors Influencing Growth in Agriculture
  • 6. IMPORTANCE OF AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTIVITY  Growth and competitiveness on agricultural market  Income distribution and saving  Agricultural growth  Alleviate poverty  More stable food supply  Lower food prices  Increase in wages  Lower opportunity cost  More consumers  Labor migration  More efficient distribution of scarce sources
  • 7. Measuring Agricultural Productivity Index number or growth accounting techniques Economic estimation of production relationship Non parametric approaches
  • 8. Data Needs for Growth Models Land improvements Gross fixed capital formation
  • 10. • Between 1950 and 2000, during the so-called "second agricultural revolution of modern times", U.S. agricultural productivity rose fast, especially due to the development of new technologies. • For example, the average amount of milk produced per cow increased from 5,314 pounds to 18,201 pounds per year (+242%), the average yield of corn rose from 39 bushels to 153 bushels per acre (+292%), and each farmer in 2000 produced on average 12 times as much farm output per hour worked as a farmer did in 1950.
