Abstract

This paper examines off-farm labor supply effects of farm mechanization. The conceptual framework in the paper suggests positive effect of farm mechanization on farm operator’s off-farm labor supply. The paper uses adoption of tractor as proxy measure of farm mechanization and utilizes a nationally representative household survey dataset from Bangladesh. Using Probit and Tobit models, the paper finds support for the proposition that farm mechanization boosts farm operator’s off-farm labor supply.
