Cost Efficiency of International Corn Production

The objective of this paper was to examine the cost efficiency of corn production for typical farms involved in the cash crop agri benchmark network. Average cost efficiency for 32 typical farms, representing 12 countries, was 0.720. Seed and direct inputs other than seed, fertilizer, and crop protection inputs, were found to be under-utilized, and labor was found to be over-utilized on the typical farms.
