We assess total factor productivity (TFP) change and its components technological change and efficiency change in French agriculture during 2002-2014 with a novel approach. We use the economically-ideal F re-Primont index which allows for multi-temporal/lateral comparisons. To compare the technology gap change between six types of farming, we provide the first extension of the F re-Primont index to the meta-frontier framework. Results indicate that all types of farming farms had TFP progress. Beef farms had the highest increase in TFP change and efficiency change. The metafrontier analysis indicates that field crop farms technology was the most productive. Acknowledgement :
