In numerous countries, particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa, this “agricultural productivity gap” (APG) is much larger, as high as a factor of Taken at face value, this deviation between theory and data suggests that living standards are much lower for agricultural households, and that some economic, social, or political “barrier” is.

Intensive agriculture practiced without adherence to the scientific principles and ecological aspects has led to loss of soil health, and depletion of freshwater Cited by: accounts, this “agricultural productivity gap” (APG) is ar ound a factor of four in developing coun-tries, on average.

In many poor countries the gaps are even higher, with a number of countries having gaps above ten. These large agricultural productivity gaps have several important implications for developing countries. put in former Soviet bloc countries, developing countries now account for about two-thirds of global agri-cultural output—up from 42% in (FAO, ).

Further, as rising incomes in developing countries lead to changes in the kinds of foods con-sumers demand, the share of staple food commodities in world agricul-ture has declined.

EMPLOYMENT, PRODUCTIVITY, AND TRADE IN DEVELOPING-COUNTRY AGRICULTURE David 1Cheong and Marion Jansen INTRODUCTION Agriculture employs more than a billion people in developing countries.

In low- and middle-income countries, the agricultural sector tends to be the primary source of employment. agricultural employment. This study is organized into three sections. Section I presents major trends in agricultural employment, it also presents a comparative account of employment and income in agriculture at the aggregate and disaggregate levels.

Subsequently the issue of labour productivity and wages in agriculture is discussed in Section Size: KB. By presenting an international assessment of total factor productivity growth in agriculture, including up-to-date empirical analysis for developed and developing countries and regions, it provides a response to the rising global scarcity of agricultural production.

The Agricultural Productivity Gap in Developing Countries We de ne the Agricultural Productivity Gap (APG) to be: APG AV n =L n AV a =L a: Under some moderately restrictive assumptions, APG should be close to 1; this is a useful benchmark.

ypicalT developing country has APG of 4. Some have 8 or more. But can we trust these highly aggregate numbers. There is also evidence that growth in agricultural total factor productivity (a broad measure of sector-wide productivity) may have slowed down in some developed countries (Choices, ).

This article provides a reassessment of agricultural productivity growth at the regional and global levels, drawing on 15 case studies newly published in. Beef production will continue to grow across the main producing countries over the outlook period (Figure ).

In developing countries, it is projected that it will be 17% higher inrelative to the base period. Developing countries are projected to account for. “agricultural productivity gaps” observed in developing countries. To do so, we develop a new database of internationally comparable sectoral measures of human capital per worker, hours worked per worker, and value added constructed from household survey data (as opposed to national income accounts).

We then use these “While policy. To keep pace with population growth, food production in developing Asia and the Pacific will need to increase mainly through improved land and labor productivity.

Measures are needed to increase agricultural investments and put in place supporting national and international policies. These measures. manual, it contains indications about desirable properties of productivity measures.

Hence, when countries have a choice in constructing new measures or developing a system of indicators, the manual may provide guidance. • Identify desirable characteristics of productivity measures by reference to a coherentFile Size: KB. 94 Other measures concerning developing countries in the WTO agreements include: • extra timefor developing countries to fulfil their commitments (in many of the WTO agreements) • provisions designed to increase developing countries’ trading opportunities through greater market access (e.g.

This paper examines changes in agricultural productivity in 18 developing countries over the period – We use a nonparametric, output-based Malmquist index and a parametric variable coefficients Cobb–Douglas production function to examine, whether our estimates confirm results from other studies that have indicated declining agricultural productivity in by:   The components of globalization include GDP, industrialization and the Human Development Index (HDI).

In the case of poorer countries with low labor productivity and low input use per worker, increased productivity resulted from increased input-use efficiency. in the developing world, and that policy makers should take steps to encourage workers to shift out of agricultural production and into the non-agricultural activities.

In this paper we draw on new micro evidence from a large set of developing countries to ask to. On Employment and Poverty With some notable exceptions, economists are increasingly convinced that there are links from high fertility and resulting population growth on the one hand to persistent poverty and wage stagnation in developing countries on the other.

High fertility andFile Size: KB. Moreover, non-agricultural employment must become available in rural areas. The reason is that marginal farmers will abandon the sector as it grows more productive. These people will need new jobs, and the transformation of the rural areas will give scope for providing such jobs.

After all, boosting agricultural productivity is not just about. Agricultural policies in developing countries Exchange rates, prices, and taxation Increased production of food and cash crops and higher rural incomes have been important objec-tives for governments of developing countries.

In pursuing these objectives, governments, with the support of foreign assistance, have made substan. Agricultural Productivity Gaps In most sub-Saharan countries, agriculture is a large sector in terms of employment and output.

But typically agriculture's share of employment is much higher than its. The poor participate much more in growth in the agricultural sector, especially in low-income countries, resulting in much larger poverty reduction impact. Together, these findings support the overall premise that enhancing agricultural productivity is the critical entry-point in designing effective poverty reduction strategies, including in.

ADVERTISEMENTS: The general factors determining agricultural productivity are as follows: 1. Pressure of Population on Agriculture: The high man-land ratio in the developed countries of the world is contrasted by low man-land ratio in the developing countries (of Asia in particular).

Overcrowding in agriculture has resulted in fragmentation of landholdings and pseudo. emigration from today's developing countries is not possible. Compared with Europe, Japan, and North America in their periods of fastest population growth, income in developing countries is still low, human and physical capital are less built up, and in some countries political and social institu-tions are less well established.

Agriculture is the science and art of cultivating plants and livestock. Agriculture was the key development in the rise of sedentary human civilization, whereby farming of domesticated species created food surpluses that enabled people to live in cities. The history of agriculture began thousands of years ago.

After gathering wild grains beginning at leastyears ago, (—) European Union: Manufacturing productivity has been increasing faster relative to agricultural productivity in a number of Asian countries in recent years.

The literature provides two hypotheses for this phenomenon. First, increases in physical capital investment led to manufacturing productivity growth in many Asian countries (Tinakorn and Sussangkarn The Role of Agriculture in Development Douglas Gollin, Stephen Parente and Richard Rogerson* A longstanding question in economics is why some countries are so much richer than others.

Today, for example, income per capita in the world’s richest countries is roughly thirty-five times greater than it is in the world’s poorest countries.
