Determinants of Technical Inefficiency in Sentul Chicken Farming in Ciamis Regency, West Java Province, Indonesia

Sudrajat ., Muhamad Nurdin Yusuf


This study was conducted to identify determinants of technical inefficiency among Sentul chicken farmers. This was investigated using the stochastic frontier production function which incorporates a model for the technical efficiency effect. Farm level survey data from 100 Sentul chicken farmers were obtained using well structured questionnaire. The parameters were estimated simultaneously with those of the model of technical efficiency effects. The result showed that age, education, experience, family size, number of chicken ownership, extension and credit have significant effect on technical inefficiency, while gender has no significant effect on technical inefficiency.
