Agricultural productivity, as an important indicator to measure the performance of agricultural economic growth, has always been a hotspot in academic research. Scholars at home and abroad have used different methods to measure agricultural productivity from different aspects, trying to accurately describe the way and path of modern agricultural economic growth. However, for a long time, the measurement of agricultural productivity is only based on the traditional factors such as capital, labor and land, and seldom takes into account the resources and environmental factors closely related to the sustainable development of agriculture. Based on this, this paper mainly explores the problem of agricultural green total factor productivity. Firstly, it combs the literature related to green agriculture, systematically summarizes the connotation and related theories of green total factor productivity, and analyzes the agricultural development status and development prospects from the perspectives of geographical environment, economic environment, technological capital and system. It provides a theoretical basis for evaluating the growth performance of agricultural economy more accurately, promoting the coordinated development of resource conservation, environmental protection and economic growth in the agricultural related departments.
