Beschreibung

This book examines productivity of peasant sugarcane farmers of rural Malawi. Specifically stochastic frontier model is employed to estimate technical efficiency scores. Cobb-Douglas production function for sugar farmers at Kasinthula Cane Growers Association scheme are estimated using maximum log likelihood methods. The results suggest that on average farmers at this scheme are technically efficient with factors such as education, land size and experience having more importance in determining their efficiency.
