Technical Efficiency Estimates of Scottish Agriculture: A Note
Within the UK there has been a lack of studies of technical efficiency at the Scottish level. This note compares the results obtained using Scottish data with a recent study by Hadley ["Journal of Agricultural Economics" (2006) Vol. 57, pp. 81-100] for English and Welsh farms. Four major sectors are investigated, namely: (i) cereals, (ii) dairy, (iii) sheep and (iv) beef over the period 1989 to 2004. Some distinct differences in efficiencies, returns to scale and causes of efficiency are found. Copyright (c) 2008 The Author. Journal compilation (c) 2008 The Agricultural Economics Society.
