Abstract
This study aims to analyze the impact of out-migration on agricultural productivity in Pidie district using qualitative descriptive analysis model. The primary data from this study was obtained through direct interviews using questionnaires. The results showed that out-migration has no impact towards agricultural productivity. This is because of the advanced use of agricultural technology in farming. This means that agricultural technology has replaced the used of labor in agriculture, thus the migrant was no longer working in agriculture. As a result, the agricultural productivity was unaffected. Therefore, it is recommended for government and private sector to provide more jobs in non-agricultural sectors. Things that can be done include drawing more investors, establishing a regional owned enterprise and improving the quality of education in rural areas.
