|Title:||Technical Efficiency in Intensive Rainfed Cropping Systems||Contributor(s):||Villano, R (author); Lucas, MP (author); Pandey, S (author)||Publication Date:||2006||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/13||Abstract:||Farming in the rainfed lowlands of northwest Luzon, Philippines, is highly intensive,diversified, and commercialised. The cropping-system is predominantly rice-based in the wetseason and high-value cash crops are grown during the dry season. Using panel data from100 randomly selected farmers, a stochastic input distance function is used to investigatetechnical efficiencies and scope economies in this environment. The average technicalefficiency estimates over the four-year period was 68 per cent. Results also show thatsignificant scope economies exist between rice and the major dry-season crops of garlic andmungbean. Scope diseconomies exist between rice and maize.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Icfai Journal of Agricultural Economics, 3(4), p. 18-33||Publisher:||Icfai University Press||Place of Publication:||Hyderabad||ISSN:||0973-2276||Field of Research (FOR):||140201 Agricultural Economics||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||C1 Refereed Article in a Scholarly Journal||Other Links:||http://ideas.repec.org/a/icf/icfjag/v03y2006i4p18-33.html||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 175
