    Author(s): Alemayehu Bashe*

    Production improvement through the use of improved technologies and increasing efficiency of inputs in cereal production in general and wheat production in particular might be an important alternative to settle food security problem in Ethiopia. However, the potential to increase the production by new introduced technologies could be less and less through time due to scarcity of resources. The efficiency of producers that they could not use available resources on hand was taken as a great attention. In this study, it was aimed to analyze the levels of technical, allocate and economic efficiencies of wheat producers; and determine factors for inefficiency in farmers’ wheat production by using cross sectional data from randomly selected 123 households during 2018/19 production year. Both primary and secondary data sources were used to undertake the study. Stochastic production fro.. Read More»
