Abstract


The purpose of this research is to investigate the market assisted land reform effects over a range of socioeconomic factors of farms in the Jordan River Valley. These factors include: age, education, total factor productivity, net farm income and gross output per farm and per dunum. The outcomes of this investigation indicated that the buyer group farmers are similar in terms of age and education to other identified groups in the region. However, they were found to be more efficient and more productive over the above-mentioned economic performance criteria. Thus, legislation to speed up the mobility of resources could be justified in the ground of enhancing economic resource use in the Valley. Credit facilities could be in tool on this process.
