Harish A. Patil, Vanita Khobarkar

Abstract :

This study was designed to measure technical efficiency in wheat production of Amravati division of Vidharbha region of Maharashtra state using a stochastic frontier production model. The sample of 81 Wheat farmers were selected from which input–output data collected based on 2011–12 rabi cropping season. The results revealed that the technical efficiency of wheat production range from 66% to 96% with mean 85%. Indicating the presence of 15% inefficiency. It implies that there is scope to increase the productivity of the farmers to the extent of 15%, if the gap between technology adopted and the technology recommended is minimized.
