The measurement of technical efficiency of maize production in Taiwan



The measurement of technical efficiency of maize production in Taiwan



Journal of Agricultural Economics, Taiwan (38): 1-23



Farrell's non-parametric approach is used to estimate technical efficiency for maize production in Taiwan. The average maize production technical efficiency indices were 0.72 and 0.75 for first and second crops, respectively, in 1984. No significant relationship is found between efficiency index and farm scale. However, the unit cost shows a decreasing tendency with increasing farm size.
