Allocative efficiency: It occurs when no possible reorganization of resources/production can make any combination higher yielding without making other combination less yielding. It refers to resource use efficiency. Optimality: It is an ideal condition or situation in which costs are File Size: KB.

    The result shows that 65% of urban farmers were 70% technology efficient; maximum efficiency is , while minimum efficiency in urban farm is View Show abstract. Similarly, BC3 saw a lower average production efficiency at The hardest hit was the most recent cycle, BC6. The average production efficiency dropped to This suggests the agricultural producers achieved an 87 percent efficiency relative to a theoretical maximum production efficiency.

      Labor and area are found to be the most productive factors in organic farming. Organic farmers, on average, are more technically efficient than their conventional counterparts (efficiency ratings are approximately and , respectively).Author: Fadi Abdelradi.
