Abstract:

Facility agriculture plays a huge role in improving land use efficiency, expanding vegetable production and meeting the consumer demand. Based on the production data of protected vegetables of 21 provinces in China from 2011 to 2015, this paper analyzes the production technology efficiency and its influencing factors, using DEA-Tobit model. The results are as follows:First, the production technology efficiency of facility vegetable in China is quite different and fluctuating. Second, the economic benefits of vegetable production and urbanization level of vegetable production have a positive effect on the production technology efficiency of vegetable. Third, the vegetable production scale has a negative impact on the production technology efficiency of vegetable.

Key words: facility vegetables, technical efficiency, data envelopment analysis, panel Tobit model
