Agricultural Sustainability in Albania. A production Function Approach
AbstractAmong the several aspects concerning the concept of sustainable agriculture, a very important one is related to food security which requires maintaining constant or increasing agricultural productivity over time. Believing that the Albanian agricultural farm structure should be reorganized to put farmers in a more productive condition, thus ensuring a certain level of food security, this work analyses the existing relationship between land yields (with specific regard to cereals and vegetables) and the availability of factor imputs over the period 1970-1997. Among others, input such as land size and irrigation capability are particularly considered. This work concludes by highlighting that an eventual land merging policy would sustain a more productive Albanian agricultural system.
