Measuring productivity in African agriculture

Agrekon – the journal of the Agricultural Economics Association of South Africa – is planning a special edition on the measurement of productivity in agriculture under the guest editorship of Jenifer Piesse and Nick Vink. The focus will be on South and Southern Africa but contributions that address other parts of the African continent will also be considered. We are specifically looking for aggregate total factor productivity (TFP) and profit functions, studies of important industries (e.g. beef cattle, broadacre crop farming, deciduous fruit, citrus, table grapes, sugar cane, vegetables); irrigated agriculture; meta-frontiers spanning emerging and commercial sectors; and studies that use propensity score matching to form control groups for club data. Analyses of recent weather anomalies are also welcomed, while large panel datasets and new methods are preferred.

Express your interest by dropping a brief concept note to Nick Vink at [email protected], preferably before the end of March. First drafts will be due by the end of September 2022. Papers will comply with the submission requirements of Agrekon.
