Abstract

We measure the level and determinants of technical efficiency of maize based smallholder farmers

show that higher levels of technical efficiency are obtained when farmers use integrated soil fertility options

access to agricultural input and output markets, credit provision and extension services strongly influence

address the efficiency of Malawian agriculture and its impact on poverty by ensuring sustainable soil fertility

management.
