Abstract

This paper compares the technical and allocative efficiencies of collective and individual production systems. The producers under study are members of Honduran agrarian reform cooperatives who engage in collective and/or individual production of maize. Debreu-Farrell technical efficiencies are calculated relative to a stochastic production frontier. Allocative efficiencies are obtained from an analytically derived cost frontier. Results indicate that collective systems are slightly more efficient than individual production systems.
