Based on the current strategic background of rural revitalization, it is essential to solve the problems of agriculture, rural areas, and farmers and resolve the contradiction of urban-rural dual development. The solution to these problems is agricultural production. In agricultural production, infrastructure construction is also an important influencing factor, which can directly promote economic growth and indirectly promote economic growth under scale effect and network effect, and improve agricultural total factor productivity. The specific mechanism is that agricultural infrastructure increases factor input, the improvement of factor productivity, and the innovation of factor. This work mainly explained the role mechanism to explore further the impact of rural infrastructure construction on agricultural total factor productivity, and think about the way out of agricultural infrastructure construction based on the effects, so as to make suggestions for agricultural infrastructure construction and bring about the steady improvement of agricultural total factor productivity. It will bring about an effective solution to the problems of agriculture, rural areas, farmers, and the dual development of urban and rural areas and truly achieve the development vision of rural revitalization.
