Agriculture has undergone significant transformations thanks to technological advancements. These innovations have led to a nearly tripled total agricultural output between 1948 and 2021, without the need for additional inputs. The USDA report shows that the growth in agricultural output is largely attributed to increases in total factor productivity (TFP), which measures how efficiently inputs like labor, capital, and intermediate inputs are transformed into outputs.

TFP signifies positive changes in efficiency and can be seen as an indicator of technical change in the industry. However, it’s important to note that total output growth and estimated TFP growth can be influenced by short-term factors like adverse weather conditions. To learn more about how technology is increasing agricultural productivity, you can listen to Sabrina Halvorson’s program, This Land Of Ours.
