Technical Efficiency of Different Farmer Sizes and its Influencing Factors-Based on Stochastic Frontier Production Function and Micro-Data of Households

QU Xiao-bo(Institute of Population and Labor Economics,Chinese Academy of Social Sciences,Beijing 100732,China)  
Using Tanslog Stochastic Frontier Production Function Model and a large set of first-hand household-level survey data from fruit growers in Shaanxi Province,this paper makes an attempt at both theoretical and empirical analyses on the production technical efficiency of different farmer sizes and its influencing factors.The results show that: firstly,management size and farmer households′ production technical efficiency display an inverted "U" tendency,that means,medium-sized farmer households have a higher production efficiency than both small-sized and large-sized,and have larger room for technical efficiency enhancement.Secondly,technical efficiency loss shows that farm size,human resources investment like education and technical training and the extension and popularization of sci-tech information all have a marked positive effect on the production efficiency of farmer households,while non-farm management,arable land subtraction and credit availability all have a negative effect,and other factors like family size,age and agro-cooperatives do not show a marked effect.Finally,the paper draws a research conclusion and puts forward some policy suggestions.
