This paper ail11s at l11easuring the total factor productivity (TFP) of the European agricultural finns. With a Translog index, an interspatial comparison of tIle twelve European countries and intertel11poral productivity variations are computed to l11easure the different rate of TFP (Translog, Fisher and Hulten indexes) in the European firms. The approach that we use is to calculate non parametric indexex of total factor productivity which allow flexible l110delling of underlying technology and easy calculation from the account data of the firms. The implication of the quasi-fix family work factor for the short mn and long mn equilibrium of the firms differ between countries and has consequences on the TFP path. The final cornments offer some explanation according with theory available.
