This book on the comparative efficiency of rice farming in Asia and the Philippines is intended for a general audience who would like to learn about the current status of efficiency of rice farming in the Philippines relative to the five major rice producers in the world: China, India, Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam. In this book, estimates of technical and allocative efficiencies of rice farming across selected rice bowls in Asia and in selected rice-producing provinces in the Philippines are compared. Factors that can improve efficiency are also determined. Additionally, factors that can increase yield and reduce cost are assessed.
