Estimation of technical and allocative efficiency of cabbage farm in Bilaspur District of Chhattisgarh State
Ajay Tegar, KNS Banafar and Anjum Ahmad
The study investigated the technical efficiency and allocative efficiency of cabbage farm in Bilaspur District of Chhattisgarh, using a stochastic frontier production function. The primary data were collected from 154 randomly selected respondents. The study revealed return to scale on as 1.998, 2.35, 3.81 and 2.177 on marginal to large farms of cabbage respectively that indicates the production of cabbage falls into stage one of production surface. Overall the sum value of estimate were 2.045 indicates an increasing return to scale falling into first stage of production surface. The coefficient value of gamma (γ) found positive but non-significant which showed that variation in output was due to random factor. The mean technical efficiency of the pooled sample accounted to be 94 per cent that means there is scope to increase technical efficiency by 6 percent. The two inputs land size and seed were over utlised as allocative efficiency valued less than unity while other four inputs viz fertiliser, agrochemicals, labour and irrigation were valued greater than unity which indicated under utilisation of these resources. The study suggested that to maximize the production of cabbage inputs land size and seed must be decreased while other inputs like fertiliser, agrochemicals, labour and irrigation must be increased.
