  The study examined the factors determining the productivity and technical efficiency of yam production in Ondo State Nigeria, with a view to improving its production as a panacea for solving food security problems in the country. The data, mainly from primary sources were collected from 160 yam farmers selected from four local government areas in the state using multistage sampling techniques. The data were analysed using descriptive statistics, gross margin and stochastic frontier production function. The study revealed that yam production was very profitable in the study area and that while all the technical and socio-economic variables involved in yam production were in the efficient stage of resource allocation, educational level of the farmers was in the inefficient stage. The overall productivity of yam production, Return to Scale (RTS) was however in the irrational zone of the production function, thus giving room for future expansion in output and productivity. The Technical Efficiency (TE) of the farmers varied significantly with about 97% variation in their output caused by differences in the farmers TE. While type of farming led to increase in TE, source of land, type of labour and distance of yam farm led to decrease in TE.

  The study examined the Productivity and Technical Efficiency of Poultry egg production in Nigeria using the stochastic frontier production function analysis. Primary data were collected using a set of structured questionnaire from two hundred poultry egg farmers who were selected using multi stage sampling techniques, from five Local Government Areas (LGA) of Osun state, Nigeria. Results showed that poultry egg production was in the rational stage of production (stage II) as depicted by the Returns to Scale (RTS) of 0.771. The variables of interest, stock of birds, operating costs, and other costs were effectively allocated and used, as confirmed by each variable having estimated coefficient value between zero and unity. The Technical Efficiencies of the farmers varied widely between 0.239 and 0.933 with a mean of 0.763 and about seventy nine percent of the farmers had T.E. exceeding 0.70. This study further observed that only location of farm (nearness to urban centre) positively affected T.E while increase in the other socio-economic variables, age, experience and education led to decrease in T.E.

  The paper examined the productivity of bio-technical factors and technical efficiency of aquaculture production in Ondo State, Nigeria. Primary data were collected from 120 fish farms selected from ten Local Government Areas of Ondo State using multistage sampling technique. The data were analysed using descriptive statistics and stochastic frontier production function analysis. Results of the study showed that the bio-technical factors were important in aquaculture production and their productivities could be improved upon by expanding production from its present level so that Returns to Scale could move from stage I to stage II of the production function region. The study further revealed that technical inefficiency effects accounted for about 65% variation in the output of aquaculture in the study area. Also, the farmers were relatively technically efficient with mean technical efficiency of 0.83 and about 59% having technical efficiency > 0.80.
