Rajeev Singh [6] | Santosh Kumar Mishra | Pravin Shahu

Abstract: This study was conducted in Martinganj block of district Azamgarh 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 found out resource use efficiency. Return to scale in all farm size was found more than unity (1.025 in marginal, 1.014 in small, 1.063 in medium, and 1.754 in large farm), indicates that production of paddy was characterized by increasing return to scale in case of all categories of farm, manure & fertilizer, irrigation charges, human labor and seed, 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
