This study compared Data Envelopment Analysis and Stochastic Frontier Analysis to assess efficiency of maize production using a cross-section data randomly obtained from maize farmers in Ogo-Oluwa Local government Area of Oyo State. Previous studies have dealt with the use of either of the techniques or both. Consistency of potential existence was found in the two approaches but varies in magnitude. The significant variations in the level of inefficiency across sample farms were attributed to… CONTINUE READING
