Comment of the Week

“On the subject of farm size.

The minimum farm size is one that will support the farmer and his family. Of course, this requires a smaller area on land that is more productive and fertile. Only an ivory-tower theorist would argue that the size of farms drives fertility, rather than the reverse.

What we actually SEE in my farming community is that farm productivity is strongly related to the expertise of the farmer and his willingness to adopt the most productive technology. It is the expert farmer who is most profitable and hence most likely to buy more land and increase the size of his holdings. Also, technology is expensive, which means that larger farms can more easily afford the most productive technology and pay the higher wages required to attract the best quality employees.”

PeterW makes a good point.
