Concepts related to economies of size and their application



Journal of Rural Development and Administration 18(3/4): 92-100



Having first defined the concept 'economies of size', the paper goes on to a discussion of the size of farms. It shows that although small farms are considered more efficient than large ones, small farms require increasing support from governments. The second half of the paper looks at the relationship between size and productivity on 3 761 940 farms in Pakistan.
