Technical Efficiency of Cassava's Producers in the Hinterland of Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo

Abstract : This study aims at identifying the main determinants of efficiency of cassava producers in the hinterland of Kinshasa. Data used were from a sample 202 farm-household survey randomly selected. The Data Envelopment Analysis was applied to compute the efficiency score. The truncated regression model was used to identify factors associated with the efficiency score distribution. The results of estimations revealed that only few farm-households have reached the frontier of best practice and therefore can be viewed as technically efficient. The results of truncated regression showed that landholding property, associations, formal education of household head and farm size are the key drivers of technical efficiency differentials between producers.
