Abstract:

Using household survey data from rural China, economies of scale as measured by returns to scale and the effects of land fragmentation on crop outputs are examined. While these effects are found to be detrimental, statistically significant and substantial, existing economies of scale appear to be too small to suggest radical land policy changes in China.
