He concluded that the overall productivity of the U.S. farmer was greatest at the age group of 35 to 45 years old. Downloadable. The productivity of farmers at six different age cohorts was computed by estimating production functions using census data. The results suggest that farmers of different ages operate with slightly different technologies and use various inputs at different efficiencies.

Compared with previous estimates, the productivity of middleaged farmers appears to be even greater. Age, Wage and Productivity* Previous empirical studies on the effect of age on productivity and wages find contradicting results.
