In Nigeria, tomato is mainly cultivated in the northern part of the country where it forms an important part of the farming systems. The growth of tomato production depends on the need to improvement in either in productivity or through area expansion. The increase in tomato production in Nigeria is mainly contributed by expansion of area. The productivity growth may be achieved through either technological progress or efficiency improvement . Several studies indicated that the existing low levels of technical efficiency hinder efforts to achieve progress in production . Despite the significant growth in tomato production, there is huge inefficiency in the production system of tomato production. An improvement in the efficiency of production system will have direct positive impact on agricultural growth, nutritional security and rural livelihood in a country like Nigeria, where tomato is one of the major crops.
