Measuring Economic Efficiency of Kidney Bean Production using Non-Discretionary Data Envelopment Analysis


  • Alireza Khoshroo Department of Agricultural Engineering, Faculty of Agriculture, Yasouj University, Yasouj, Iran.

Efficient use of assets in agriculture is a goal for policy-makers and farmers. Agricultural input resources are scarce therefore optimum use of inputs in different agricultural operations is important. Mathematical programming technique such as data envelopment analysis (DEA) is a well-known approach for estimation efficiency of agricultural DMUs. In this study, efficiency of kidney bean production in twelve provinces of Iran has been studied. Inputs were cost of tillage, planting, cultivation, harvesting and land. Output included total production value of kidney bean. Land cost is a non-controllable variable. Therefore; a non-discretionary DEA approach was applied to estimate efficiency of kidney bean production. The average value of technical efficiency score of kidney bean production was 0.74. Results showed that 58 percent of DMUs were efficient and the rest were inefficient. In optimum condition based on the proposed model, tillage, planting, cultivation and harvesting costs is decreased by 34.48%, 11.92%, 27.87% and 7.27%, respectively, without decreasing kidney bean production level.

Measuring the efficiency of a three-stage network using data envelopment analysis approach considering dual boundary

This paper presents a method for performance evaluation, ranking and clustering based on the double-frontier view to analyze the complex networks. The model allows us to open the structure of the “black box” and can help to obtain important information about efficient and inefficient points of the system. In this paper, we consider a three-stage network, in respect to the additional desirable a...

Non-discretionary imprecise data in efficiency Measurement

This paper introduces discretionary imprecise data in Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) and discusses the efficiency evaluation of Decision Making Units (DMUs) with non-discretionary imprecise data. Then, suggests a method for evaluation the efficiency of DMUs with non-discretionary imprecise data. When some inputs and outputs are imprecise and non-discretionary, the DEA model becomes non-linear ...

Measuring efficiency of physician practices using data envelopment analysis.

PURPOSE Medical-group practices are becoming increasingly common-place, with more than a third of licensed physicians in the United States currently working in this mode. While previous studies have focused on physician practices, little attention has been focused specifically on the contribution of internal organizational factors to overall physician practice efficiency. This paper develops a ...
