2010: Relative Efficiency of UK Farms

This Research Briefing outlines the results of a recently completed six-month Defra research contract aimed at measuring technical efficiency by farm type within the UK and across a number of EU countries.

All Scottish farming types have farms that are on the technical efficiency frontier, meaning that they are operating at their optimal activity levels.
