The impact of group affiliation to agroholdings on enterprise performance in terms ofproductivity and efficiency is controversially discussed in the literature. However, only fewpapers evaluate the effects of group membership on the productivity and efficiency of agriculturalenterprises in Russia. The underlying research question of this paper is therefore whether farmsthat belong to agroholdings perform better than independent farms. We calculate partial land andlabor productivity, total factor productivity (TFP) and technical efficiency scores for the twocategories of independent farms and members of agroholdings. In this paper a productionfunction approach is estimated in the framework of stochastic frontier analysis. The results areused to decompose TFP into a technological change effect and a technical efficiency effect. Theresults show a different trend than observed in previous studies. We show that the growth ofagroholdings’ TFP exceeds by far the development of the TFP of independent farms and thatgroup affiliation has a positive impact on the performance of farms.
