Analyses were carried out in order to determine which countries showed the best performance adaptations when the quota regime was relaxed and to evaluate the technical conditions of European farmers at the starting point of the new regime (milk quota abolition).Cited by: 6.

Agricultural Productivity: Measurement and Sources of Growth addresses measurement issues and techniques in agricultural productivity analysis, applying those techniques to recently published data sets for American agriculture. The data sets are used to estimate and explain state level productivity and efficiency differences, and to test different approaches to productivity measurement. The future of food and agriculture depends on the capacity of agricultural innovation systems to provide farmers with innovations that address an increasingly diverse and complex range of needs, including improved farm productivity and environmental performance, as .

Technical efficiency, farm productivity and farm size in Indian agriculture by Raghbendra Jha Download PDF EPUB FB2

The average farm had productive assets worth 26 million G. Seven percent of farms received technical assistance, 10% received credit assistance, and less than one percent received marketing assistance.

The average farm used family labor almost exclusively. Downloadable. Although there is a very large literature on the links between farm size and farm productivity in Indian agriculture there is virtually none that discusses the influence of farm size on technical efficiency.

In this paper we try to fill this gap. We use panel data on a large number of farms for two Indian states to estimate a translog production frontier for wheat production and.

Many studies have analysed the relationship between technical efficiency and size, although the first wave of research dealing with this issue looked at the relationship between productivity (measured as output per acre) and size (measured by acres of land).

2 In an influential paper, Sen () found an inverse relationship between farm size Cited by: This essay assesses the relationship between farm size and productivity.

Both parametric and nonparametric methods are used to derive efficiency measures. Smaller farms are found to have higher net farm income per hectare, and to be more technically efficient, than larger by: These measures of efficiency as well as farm yield are related to farm size. The paper appears to be the first to measure technical and allocative efficiency in agriculture jointly.

It is discovered that, on the whole, large farms are technically and allocatively more efficient than small farms for both by: Technical Efficiency and Farm Size Productivity.

30 determinants of this variation are crucial for identifying appropriate strategies to improve efficiency. Against this background the present study attempts to analyse the interface between technical efficiency and farm size productivity with special reference to the districtCited by: 9.

technical progress parameter. In Indian agriculture irrigation may largely be regarded as a factor bringing about land-augmenting technical progress.4 By improving land productivity, reducing production un-certainty, and facilitating double cropping and other improved methods of production, irrigation serves as a factor increasing the effective supply.

agricultural productivity and efficiency. This research starts with a literature review and gaps analysis on agricultural productivity and efficiency. Its first objective is to provide clear definitions of essential concepts, such as agricultural productivity and efficiency, often used as synonyms although they cover different dimensions File Size: 1MB.

Education, credit, farm power, house size and market variables had a negative coefficients implying that they contributed negatively to technical inefficiency (increase technical efficiency) the coefficient for credit is significant at 1% level while the variable for education is statistically significant at 5% level.

All the coefficients had the expected negative signs as the variables are expected to contribute in reducing technical inefficiency.

Frontier production functions are important for the prediction of technical efficiencies of individual firms in an industry. A stochastic frontier production function model for panel data is presented, for which the firm effects are an exponential function of time.

The best predictor for the technical efficiency of an individual firm at a particular time period is presented for this time Cited by:   This paper seeks to assess the significance of the celebrated inverse relationship between farm size and land‐productivity in the context of Indian agriculture.

It is argued that the inverse relationship does not reflect a superiority of peasant production over wage‐labour‐based production as is often by: Downloadable.

The paper estimates the technical efficiency and the relationship between farm size and productivity efficiency.

Field survey data of farmers from district Pulwama of Jammu & Kashmir (India) for the year were used to estimate the technical efficiency by employing Non-parametric Data Envelopment Analysis.

Average technical efficiency worked out to be 48%.Cited by: 9.

ADVERTISEMENTS: The Farm Management Studies conducted by the Ministry of Food and Agriculture in certain selected regions of India in the mids clearly revealed that output per acre declined with the increase in the size of holding.

Several explanations have been offered for this inverse relationship between farm size and output per acre. This paper examines the relationship between farm size and productivity in China's agriculture.

In developing agriculture where there is a broad range of farm sizes, farm size and productivity or. The primary objective of this study is to examine the effect of farm size on economic efficiency among wheat producers and to suggest ways to improve wheat production in the country.

Specifically, the study attempts to estimate the levels of technical, allocative, and economic efficiencies among the sampled large and small scale wheat producers in Nakuru District. The social-economic Cited by: 8. Technical Efficiency in Agricultural Production and Access to 56 heavily dependent on landlord for necessary production and consumption credit.

Nearly 56 percent of them were borrowed from landlord in the planting season. Thus it can be argued that the smaller the tenant’s wealth the more profitable it is for the landlord to specify a.

Statistical validity of the inverse relationship between farm size and productivity is a confirmed phenomenon in Indian agriculture prior to Green Revolution.

Green revolution is a capital intensive programme which was implemented in s for growth of agricultural production. The farm size and productivity debate has been limited by the focus on land or labor productivity, generally showing respective productivity advantages to smaller or larger sized farms.

Sen (): (1) “When family labour employed in agriculture is given an imputed value in terms of the ruling wage rate, much of Indian agriculture seems un-remunerative.”.production and technical risks – Price or marketing risk – Financial risk – methods of farm unit.
