Improving productivity and efficiency in agriculture is a priority concern for governments, policy makers, nongovernment organisations, relevant stakeholders and farming communities worldwide in order to meet the ever-increasing demand for food from a closing land frontier and degrading land base. Concern is also centred on sustaining agriculture to ensure future growth and supply of food. These concerns are particularly high for countries grappling with a low level of technical progress, subsistence farming, adverse production environment and changing climate.
This Special Issue is aimed at soliciting original contributions from academics, researchers, practitioners, NGOs and other stakeholders providing theoretical insights and/or empirical analysis focusing on productivity, efficiency and economic sustainability of agriculture. The editor encourages submissions with applications of innovative and/or novel methodologies ranging from parametric, semi-parametric and non-parametric approaches to address the theme of the Special Issue. The scope of submission includes original research and review articles on the theme.
