Mis-specification in Farm Productivity Analysis: The Role of Land Quality
A stylized fact of development literature is that there is an inverse relationship between farm size and land productivity. This has been interpreted to indicate that labor dualism is a pervasive phenomenon in the rural areas of developing countries. A large survey (1976-77) of Indian farm households is used to test the existence of the inverse relationship after accounting for farm-specific land quality factors. Such factors weaken significantly, and in many areas eliminate, the "observed" inverse relationship. Copyright 1988 by Royal Economic Society.
