This paper examines sources of agricultural growth in sub-Saharan Africa. Growth in the stock of traditionalinputs (land, labor, livestock) remains the dominant source of output growth. Growth in modern input use was ofsecondary importance, but still accounted for a 0.2-0.4% annual growth rate in three of four sub-regions.Econometric results support earlier studies that suggest that land abundance may be a constraint on landproductivity growth. Growth in agricultural exports and historic calorie availability had positive impacts onproductivity. These latter results suggest that positive feedback effects exist between export performance and foodsecurity on one hand and agricultural productivity on the other.
