Causative factors for changes in total factor productivity of Japanese agriculture under the era of climatic uncertainty


  • Kunimitsu, Yoji


This study analyzed causative factors on TFP growth in Japanese agriculture. The regression analysis with consideration of correlation between factors demonstrated that without further deregulation for introducing new comers, enlarging farm management area and asset management for keeping public capital, agricultural TFP cannot be improved in the future.
