Results of efficiency measurements showed an average of 90.1% in technical efficiency, 92.0% in allocative efficiency and 83.4.0% in economic efficiency for Osun State.On the other hand,Oyo State paddy producers recorded an average of 94.3%in technical efficiency,88.9%in allocative efficiency and 84.0%in economic efficiency.
