Factors Impacting Farm Growth

This paper examined the relative importance of farm size, farm type, managerial ability, capital structure, operator age, family size, and off-farm income in explaining farm growth rates. Farm type, managerial ability, and operator age were significantly related to farm growth rates. Farms that grew faster obtained a higher percent of their farm income from crops, had above average managerial ability, and had younger operators.
