Abstract

The study was conducted in order to understand apple productivity of the different blocks of district Shimla and from the study one tries to reveales the resource efficiency of different blocks. For the study one has taken land as the main and principle resource and data of 10 years (2008-2018) for 10 Blocks being collected from the secondary source which is analyzed with the help of regression and percentage method to found the efficiency and resource performance in different blocks of Shimla District. It was observed that blocks which are showing highest average and per hectare productivity actually their coefficient value of land is going down and showing decreasing returns and blocks with low average and per hectare production are showing positive coefficient value of land hence determining their resource efficiency. The study gives us knowledge about the production and efficiency difference among different blocks.
