TECHNICAL EFFICIENCY DIFFERENTIALS IN RICE PRODUCTION TECHNOLOGIES IN NIGERIA 1 1 1. Introduction T he Nigerian rice sector is special within the West Africa context. First, rice is primarily a cash crop in Nigeria (produced primarily for the market).

Technical efficiency differentials in rice production technologies in Nigeria. Citation Ogundele, O.O. & Okoruwa, V.O. () Technical efficiency differentials in rice production technologies in Nigeria, AERC research paperNairobi: by: efficiency in rice production in Nigeria.

The analysis also compares the differential in technical efficiency between the traditional technology and improved technology farmers. "This study examined technical efficiency differentials between farmers planting traditional rice varieties and those planting improved varieties in Nigeria.

The study used a multistage random sampling procedure for the selection of respondents comprising traditional rice varieties and iCited by: technical efficiency are synonymous.

Technical efficiency is the ability to achieve a higher level of physical output given a small level of production input. Hence the technical efficiency of rice farmers in the study area was needed to be measured to enable us know how efficient rice production is. Furthermore, technical efficiency differentials in rice production technologies (traditional and improved rice varieties) in Nigeria indicated that the TE for.

Hypotheses The following hypotheses were tested to assist in better understanding of the level of technical efficiency of the rice.

Examining the level of farm-specific technical efficiency of farmers growing irrigated and non-irrigated rice in Northern Ghana, this study fitted cross-sectional data into a transcendental logarithmic (translog) production frontier.

The study concludes that rice farmers are technically inefficient. There is no significant difference in mean technical efficiencies for non-irrigators (53%) and. DIRECT SEEDING OF RICE: INCENTIVES Increasing water crisis is forcing farmers and researchers to find out ways to decrease water use in rice production.

In Asia, irrigated agriculture accounts for 90% of total diverted freshwater, and more than 50% of this is required to irrigate rice.

Direct seeding offers a promising solution for this by.

26, No. 1, pp. The paper analyzed the efficiency of resource utilization in rice production in Cross River State, Nigeria. The population of this study comprises of all the small scale rice farmers in Cross River State. A multistage sampling technique was used to collect data from rice farmers using a well structured questionnaire.

Cobb-Douglas Stochastic production frontier function and marginal. The efficiency of rice production has been of longstanding interest to the economists and policymakers in Asia because of the strong relationship between rice production and food security in the.

The study examined the technical efficiency of upland rice production by men and women farmers in Osun State of Nigeria using the stochastic frontier production function analysis. Primary data were obtained through the use of a set of questionnaire from one hundred representative sample of men and women rice farmers from Osun State, Nigeria.

Nigeria including the current adaptive strategies within the rice production systems (for example, combination of different rice production systems among rice farming households). Rice production systems in Nigeria The quality and quantity of locally produced rice in Nigeria varies according to the system within which it is grown.

Although, it. There have been many previous studies of technical inefficiency in rice production in the Philippines, but none has focused simultaneously on production risk and technical inefficiency at the farm level. Rice production is inherently risky because of the heterogeneous production.

Although rice is the main crop in Bangladesh and the country is ranked as the sixth largest rice producer in the world, researchers observe that rice is not produced with full efficiency in the country.

It is also observed that owing to the application of high yielding variety seeds, chemical fertilizer, pesticide, and irrigation, productivity of rice in Bangladesh has increased in the recent.

Abba Mohammed Wakili, and Abu Hassan Md Isa. AbstractThe study examined the technical efficiency of rice production in Adamawa State, Nigeria.A set of questionnaires was used to obtained data from irrigated rice farmers and rain-fed rice farmers.

examine the production characteristics of the rice farmers in the study area; 2. estimate the technical efficiency as well as ascertain the nature of returns to scale where that exist in the rainfed rice *production system.

Methodology The research was conducted in Ebonyi State, Southeast Nigeria. The state is in tropical rain forest zone. Rice is one of the most consumed foods in Nigeria. Nigeria currently consumes about million metric tons of Rice annually while production is currently at million metric tons.

To make up for the shortfall in production, Nigeria spends over N million annually in importation of Rice. This paper investigates factors that influence technical efficiency in rice-based production systems among fadama farmers in Adamawa State, Nigeria.

Primary data were used in the analysis of data. The analytical tools include descriptive statistics and the stochastic frontier production function model, which incorporates a technical inefficiency model using the maximum-likelihood estimation. Adoption Differentials and Benefits of Improved Rice Production Technologies among Farmers in Ebonyi State of Nigeria Umeh G, N it has become part of everyday diet of many in Nigeria.

Both rice production and consumption (demand) is growing faster than for any other major staples because consumption is broadening provision of technical.

As unravelled by the result of the study, it can thus be concluded that technical efficiency of rice farmers can be improved by improving access to timely credit and agricultural information for improving rice productivity.

These findings suggest that filling the financing gap of smallholder rice farmers will improve rice productivity in Nigeria. Ebonyi State is a major rice producing State in Southeast Nigeria.

In recent times, rice production in the area has fallen short of the demand due to low yield ascribed to low adoption of improved production technologies disseminated by the Agricultural Development Programme (ADP) of the State. This study investigates the technical efficiency of poultry egg farmers in Ibadan metropolis, Oyo state, Nigeria.

The data for the study were collected from poultry egg farmers with the aid of structured questionnaire. The data collected were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics based on the objectives of the study.

The results show that the mean age of the respondents. Results also indicate that technology adoption or use of improved production practices increase the technical efficiency of rice farmers. Based on the results it is recommended that policy‐makers and researchers develop district specific recommendations, and determine how the adoption of improved technology can be increased.

Key words: Resource use efficiency, rice production systems, Nigeria. INTRODUCTION. technologies exist and are already being used by the farmers (Nwaru, ).

Consequently, Observed differentials in technical efficiency may be due to the differences in managerial. The result of technical efficiency shows that the mean was approximately The minimum technical efficiency was while the maximum was The determinants of technical efficiency in the study area were household size, farming experience, level of education, labour, farm size and non farm income in paddy rice production.

1. Introduction. Recent studies estimate that global rice production needs to increase between percent in the coming decade, and double by to meet the projected demand at current market prices (Ray et al., ; OECD/FAO, ; USDA-ERS, ).This projected increase in rice production will likely put significant pressure on limited natural resources and could increase .Low income, limited access to affordable financing and the lack of technical skills have limited the adoption of mechanisation across the rice value chain.

We estimate that increasing the mechanisation rate in Nigeria from hp/ha to hp/ha in the next 5 years, can double rice production .Amos, T.T. (). An Analysis of Productivity and Technical Efficiency of Smallholder Cocoa Farmers in Nigeria. Journal of Social Sciences,15 (2): – Amusa T.
