Innovative Technology Crucial for Boosting Agricultural Productivity

Advancements in technology have greatly contributed to the growth of the agricultural industry. From genetics to equipment, innovations in these areas have resulted in a nearly tripled increase in agricultural output between 1948 and 2021. A recent USDA report shows that this growth has been achieved without the need for additional inputs, indicating that increases in total factor productivity (TFP) are responsible for the growth. TFP measures the efficiency with which inputs like labor, capital, and intermediate inputs are transformed into outputs, indicating positive changes in efficiency and technical change within the industry.

However, short-term factors such as adverse weather conditions can influence both total output growth and estimated TFP growth. To learn more about how technology is increasing agricultural productivity, tune into Sabrina Halvorson’s program “This Land Of Ours.” Sabrina Halvorson is a knowledgeable journalist, broadcaster, and public speaker who specializes in agriculture, reporting on legislative issues and hosting The AgNet Weekly podcast. She is a native of California’s Central Valley, known for its rich agricultural environment.
