We use the 2005 Albania Living Standard Measurement Survey to investigate factors affecting productivity of land use and land market development. A stochastic frontier estimate points towards gaps in productivity but does not support the notion that fragmentation is one of he underlying factor. We also find that rental markets help to transfer land to more efficient producers and -contrary to what is observed in sales markets- help consolidate operational holdings.
