Technical Efficiency of Green Pepper Production
Plastik Serada Sivir Biber Üretiminin Teknik Etkinliği: Mersin İli Örneği, Türkiye

Seyit HAYRAN [1] , Aykut GÜL [2]


The main objectives of this research were to measure the technical efficiency of green pepper production in the greenhouse and to examine the determinants of technical efficiency in the Mersin province of Turkey. Data envelopment analysis was used to measure technical efficiency. 102 randomly selected farmers were visited to obtained data belong to the 2015 - 2016 production periods. The results of the research showed that farmers may reduce their input use by 10.5% by maintaining current production under prevailing technology. The technical efficiency scores of the sample farms ranged from 0.748 to 1 (0.905 average). The variables of extension, off-farm income, cooperative partnership, credit usage, record keeping, and soil test positively affected technical efficiency. However, farm size had a negative relationship with efficiency. Therefore, this study proposes strategies such as providing better extension services, providing farmers with greater access to credit, encouraging farmers to have agricultural insurance and soil tests, encouraging co-operative formation, in order to improve technical efficiency.

Bu çalışmanın temel amaçları, Türkiye'nin Mersin İlinde plastik serada sivri biber üretiminin teknik etkinliğinin ölçülmesi ve teknik etkinliğin belirleyicilerinin incelenmesidir. Teknik etkinliğin ölçülmesinde veri zarflama analizi kullanılmıştır. 2015 – 2016 üretim dönemine ait verilerin toplanması için rastgele seçilen 102 çiftçi ziyaret edilmiştir. Araştırma sonuçları, çiftçilerin hakim teknoloji altında mevcut üretim miktarlarını koruyarak girdi kullanımlarını %10.5 oranında azaltabileceklerini göstermiştir. Örnek işletmelerin teknik etkinlik skorları 0.748 ile 1 arasında değişmektedir (ortalama 0.905). Yayım, tarım dışı gelir, kooperatif ortaklığı, kredi kullanımı, kayıt tutma ve toprak analizi değişkenleri teknik etkinlik üzerine pozitif yönde etkilidir. Ancak, arazi genişliği etkinlik ile negatif ilişkilidir. Bundan dolayı, bu araştırmada teknik etkinliğin iyileştirilmesi için daha iyi yayım hizmeti sunucu, çiftçilerin krediye erişim imkanlarının iyileştirilmesi, çiftçilerin toprak analizi yaptırma ve kooperatif örgütlenmeye teşvik edilmesi gibi stratejiler önerilmektedir.
