Abstract

Data envelopment analysis is applied to original farm-level data to investigate pesticide productivity in Vietnamese rice production. Pesticides are shown to have detrimental effects on productivity. A program aimed at reducing pesticide use is shown to be more cost-efficient in some circumstances and no less technically efficient.
