Abstract
If part-time farmers are using agricultural resources less efficiently, aggregate production could suffer with increase in their number or resources controlled by them. The purpose of this paper is to: (1) determine possible differences between production functions on part-time and full-time farms, (2) determine differences in productivity levels as means to appraise resource allocative efficiency, and (3) discuss some implications of off-farm work by farmers.
