An econometric study of labor productivity in farm corporations in Iran

This dissertation tests the hypothesis that the transformation of peasant farms to modernized farms resulted in higher productivity of land and labour and also higher income for farmers. The agricultural situation in Iran is first briefly reviewed and theoretical arguments with respect to the factors affecting productivity are discussed.
