A conference in February will take an in-depth look at the relationship between agrarian structure and agricultural productivity. “Farm Size and Productivity: A Global Look” will be held in Washington D.C. on February 2-3 thanks to a collaboration of the USDA’s Economic Research Service and Farm Foundation, NFP.

“Sustaining agricultural productivity growth is a key factor in our ability to feed the world’s increasing population,” says conference organizer Keith Fuglie, an economist in the Structure, Technology and Productivity Branch of the Resource and Rural Economics Division of ERS. “This conference is an important opportunity to expand our understanding of the relationship between the size and structure of farm operations and agricultural productivity in different location and cropping scenarios worldwide.”

This conference is targeted to public policy officials, economists and those interested in global development and productivity. The workshop is free of charge but registration is requested.
