Resource use, farm size and returns to scale in a backward agriculture

Resource use, farm size and returns to scale in a backward agriculture

Indian Journal of Agricultural Economics 30(2): 32-46

The following hypotheses were examined for eastern Uttar Pradesh: (a) the inefficient use of factors of production by the farmer; (b) farm size as an important factor influencing input productivity; (c) returns to scale; (d) marginal productivity of labour. Cobb-Douglas production functions were fitted to work out the elasticities of production of inputs which in turn were used to calculate their (inputs) marginal value products (MVP) at their geometric mean for average farms.
