The Effect Of Land Fragmentation On Farm Performance: A Comprehensive Farm-Level Study From Denmark

This paper analyses the effect of land fragmentation on the performance of Danish farms based on a cross-sectional farm-level data set from 2014. Our measures of land fragmentation indicate the size and shape of the feild as well as inter feild distances and distances between farm buildings and feilds. Fragmented land is expected to increase costs and reduce production and, thus, decrease the performance of farms. Preliminary results based on two methodological approaches both indicate no statistically signifcant effect of the shape of the feils, while smaller feild sizes and longer distances signifcantly reduce performance.
