Do edge effects explain the Inverse Productivity Relationship Puzzle in Indian agriculture?


Abstract: Smaller plots have higher yields per unit area, referred as the Inverse Productivity Relationship Puzzle. This paper presents evidence for several hypotheses for this puzzle. First and most importantly, I used a randomized experiment to directly test the edge effects hypothesis which means plot peripheries are more productive than plot interiors for this puzzle. Specifically, by objectiv... read more
