Technical efficiency in maize production in Madhya Pradesh: estimation and implications



Technical efficiency in maize production in Madhya Pradesh: estimation and implications



Agricultural Economics Research Review 18(2): 305-315



This study, based on primary data collected from 300 maize-growing farmers in Madhya Pradesh, has found that even though majority of the farmers cultivate improved maize cultivars, the overall technology adoption by them is poor. This may be due to the inability of a majority of farmers to follow the recommended package of practices for the improved cultivars because of the high costs involved in their adoption and lack of infrastructural facilities.
