Abstract:
The main aim of the study was to measure the technical efficiency of groundnut production in Tamil Nadu. Diagnostic research design was used to find the technical efficiency of groundnut production in Tamil Nadu. A field survey was carried out with a well-structured interview schedule. Primary data of the selected sample farmers were collected and analyzed. The sample respondents were selected from Villupuram and Tiruvannamalai districts of Tamil Nadu who had cultivated groundnut. The random sampling technique was used to collect the sample data. The total sample size for the study was 100. Stochastic production function was used for analyzing the technical efficiency of groundnut production. The results of the stochastic frontier production function revealed that seeds, fertilizers and plant protection chemicals were significantly influencing the technical efficiency of the groundnut production. Hence, the increase in the use of these inputs could increase technical efficiency. Further, the elasticity of human labour and bullock labour inputs were negative and statistically insignificant. It was found that the efficiency of groundnut farmers ranged from 67.41 to 99.86 per cent with a mean technical efficiency was 88.06 per cent.
