The size of farms is an important determinant of agricultural productivity. This paper studies how rural land markets respond to weather shocks and how the farm size distribution changes as a consequence. Using two unique administrative data sets with transaction-level information on land sales in the country of Colombia and a land registry covering most of the country, we estimate the impact of extreme temperature events on the frequency of land sales and on the farm-size distribution of small geographical units. We find that local land markets that experienced more frequent shocks have more land sales, more owners, and more and smaller farms.
