A Methodological Note on a Stochastic Frontier Model for the Analysis of the Effects of Quality of Irrigation Water on Crop Yields

George E. Battese

Abstract


A stochastic frontier model is proposed for analysis of crop
yields, which considers the effects of differing quality of irrigation
water, in addition to different inputs and factors associated with
technical inefficiency of production. The parameters of the production
frontier involved are assumed to be a function of other variables, which
measure the quality of the irrigation water.
