A study was conducted in the Department of Agricultural Economics, University of Agriculture, Faisalabad, Pakistan during 2008 to analyze overtime productivity growth and changes in growth pattern in Punjab's agriculture. Input, output and total factor productivity (TFP) growth indices were estimated for agriculture for a period 1970 to 2005. For this purpose widely used index number approach namely Tornqvist Theil approximation to devisia index was employed. The results revealed that annual average growth rate of input, output and TFP indices remained 1.46, 3.49 and 2.0, respectively for the whole study period and TFP contributed 57 percent towards output growth. The decadewise results indicated that TFP growth remained maximum during 1980s.
