Stochastic frontier approach to measuring irrigation performance: an application to rice production under the two systems in the Tarai of Nepal


, : Stochastic frontier approach to measuring irrigation performance: an application to rice production under the two systems in the Tarai of Nepal. Water Resources Research 37(7): 2009-2018

This study employs the stochastic frontier production function approach to measuring the productive performance of canal irrigation in terms of farm-specific technical efficiency. The 1993 production data from samples of rice farmers from Khageri (government managed) and Pithuwa (farmer managed) irrigation systems in the Tarai of Nepal were analysed using a stochastic production frontier, including a model for the technical inefficiency effects.
