Abstract

This study estimates nonparametric non-stochastic Malmquist indices and a stochastic Fourier production frontier to examine agricultural productivity and its interactions with socio-political institutions in 41 sub-Saharan African countries during 1961-1999. We have learned from this study that on average, agricultural productivity in SSA was negative during the 1960's and 1970's, but has been positive during the last two decades. Institutions offer a significant explanation of at least some of the differential performance across countries.
