Abstract:

This study was conducted in Hathgam block of district Fathepur Uttar Pradesh, following purposing random sampling techinique.100 sample farmers were selected and interviewed for collection of data. Cobb –Douglas production function was fitted to find out resource use efficiency. Return to scale in all farm size was found more than unity (0.75565 marginal, 0.781697 in small and 0.868209 medium size group of farms), indicates that production of mustard was characterized by increasing return to scale in case of all categories of farm, seed, fertilizers, irrigation and human labour; the value of marginal value product (MVP) to factor cost were found positive indicating there is future scope for increasing in the investment to realize more return. In various problems, technical problem ranked first followed by management problem, agro- climatic problem and miscellaneous problem.


Keywords: Functional analysis, Cobb-Douglas production function, Standard error, Multiple determination (R2), Sum of elasticity return to scale.
