Farm Size and Land Productivity Relationships in Pakistan

The study focuses on productivity differences due to farm size. Using farm size data, it suggests that in Pakistan large farms are relatively more productive because of their greater use of .. non-traditional” inputs. The input intensity of large farms derives from market distortion induced by public policy. Agricultural policy should therefore concentrate on eliminating market distortions, by measures like ceiling on land holdings and a wider diffusion of farm extension services and credit.
