''Overcoming farm size induced constraints through endogenous institutional innovations: findings from a field study in Assam plains, India''
( 2016, Vol. 36 No.1 )
The existing studies on the farm size-productivity relationship call for government interventions in some form or another so as to make the farm size induced constraints non-binding. None of these studies explores the potential of the institution of rental markets in helping the farmers in overcoming these constraints. The present study delves into this hitherto unexplored issue. Using survey data, the paper first analyses whether farm size has any impact on productivity and value added and finds none. The insignificance of farm size has been explained in terms of endogenous innovations in the institutions of rental markets.
