Resource-use efficiency and returns to scale in rice cultivation in Manipur - an economic analysis



Resource-use efficiency and returns to scale in rice cultivation in Manipur - an economic analysis



Indian Journal of Hill Farming 13(1/2): 35-41



An analysis of resource-use efficiency in rice cultivation, using primary data collected from 120 farm households, indicates a high degree of resource-use inefficiencies in both the hill and valley regions of Manipur, India. Suboptimal use of human labour was observed in both regions of the state showing a wide scope for additional absorption of labour input in rice cultivation. Valley farms used manure and fertilizers and plant protection chemical inputs suboptimally.
