The present study attempts to determine the neutral technology, non-neutral technology and input use contribution differences between large and small sugarcane farms. Decomposition technique was used to achieve the study objectives. The contributions of neutral and non-neutral technologies were in favour of large farms. The input use contribution difference of large farms appeared to do better than small farms in sugarcane production. The study revealed that the highest input use contributing factor differences obtained by fertilizer followed by labour, pesticides with seed, and capital between large and small farms. The large sugarcane farms were more productive than small farms
