It is not possible to receive identical yields with utilisation of completely equal amount and quality of inputs. There are discrepancies between production amount and production values, amounts and values of inputs used and profit ratios of enterprises, even if the enterprises have identical technological constraints. This depends upon different productive capabilities and less favourable utilisation resources by some enterprises. Productive efficiency or economic efficiency is determined as production of maximum amount of outputs by utilising minimum amount of inputs under a given technological structure. Yet, the determinants of productive efficiency are related with the production process and allocation of resources. The aim of this paper is to review the recent literature devoted to technical efficiency analysis, which is related to the technical process, and its applications to agricultural production, which has a complex input structure compared to industrial production.
