Abstract

Agricultural Productivity and Sources of Growth in South Asia Mark W. Rosegrant and Robert E. Evenson Estimates of partial factor productivity growth ported for all-India means, and trends in TFP for rice and wheat in India, Bangladesh, and are compared to trends in Bangladesh and Pak­ Pakistan show relatively rapid growth in yields istan. Expressed in logarithmic form, the Torn­ per hectare since adoption of modem rice and quist-Theil TFP index is wheat varieties began in the mid to late 1960s (Byerlee, Rosegrant). While partial factor pro­ (I) In(TFPt!TFP - ) = - L t l ductivity growth for rice and wheat in South Asia 2 j has been extensively analyzed, there is rela­ tivel~ .little understanding of total factor pro­ (R, + Rjt- ) In (Qjt!Qjt-l) - - 2: 2 j dUCtlVlt~ growth and the sources of productivity growth III the crops sector, or of the relative (Sit + Sit-I) In (Xit/X ) , it- contribution to output growth from productivity where Rjt is the share of output j in revenues growth compared to increased factor use. Qjt is output j, Sit is the share of input i in total This paper assesses total factor productivity input cost,
