Efficiency And Income Of Rice Farming In Rainfed Lowland

[Full Text]



Arifin, Andi Adriani Wahditiya, Nirawati, Muhammad Arsyad Biba



Income, Technical Efficiency, Allocative Efficiency, Rainfed Rice



In resulting farming product will be good if the production factors that are used efficiently means that the resulting output unit is greater than the input unit used. Efforts to enhance the production of food crops through production efficiency became one of the right choices. With efficiency, farmers can use production input in accordance with the provisions to obtain optimal production. The objective of this research is to analyze rice production and income on rainfed lowland, and to analyze the technical efficiency and allocation efficiency of rice farming on rainfed lowland. This study uses primary and secondary data. The population of this study are farmers who carry out rice farming in rainfed lowland. In the determination of respondents done by simple random sampling method. Data processing is done by using tabulation and percentage. Technical analysis used is quantitative descriptive. The results showed that: (1) the use of rice farming inputs in rainfed lowland was technically efficient, and not yet allocatively efficient. (2) On average, rice farming in rainfed lowland increases production and income.
