Abstract

This paper estimates consistent technical inefficiency levels among small-scale vegetables producers in lowland farming system of Benin by adapting the Simar and Wilson (2008) homogeneous bootstrap method to the case of directional distance functions. Results indicate that there is an opportunity to increase vegetables production in dry season through better uses of mineral fertilizers and improved vegetable variety in short run.
