Analysis of the Technical and Scale Efficiency of Farms Operating in LFA

No 4/2014, December


The paper deals with an analysis of the technical and scale efficiency of farms operating in LFA. In particular, we provide an analysis of the relationship between farm size and technical and scale efficiency. The results of the fitted stochastic frontier model show that significant differences in the relationship between efficiency and farm size can only be found for technical efficiency in the group of farms with more than 1000 hectares.The paper arose within the framework of solution IGA 20131039.
