The question of how efficiently farmers use farm resources in a peasant agriculture has been a topic of substantial interest. The conclusion of this article is that the available empirical evidence does not lead to the rejection of the hypothesis of production efficiency in the traditional South Indian agriculture. This conclusion indicates that a rapid and mass development of agriculture in India can be achieved only by breaking through the traditional state of the arts and introducing modern technology in a package consisting of new inputs, agricultural education, special skills and techniques, and competent guidance in farm planning.
