This study was carried out to estimate the technical efficiency of the main governorates of wheat production in Egypt during the time period 1990-2012. We apply the stochastic frontier approach for efficiency measurement. The specifications of Battese and Coelli (1992) and (1995) are employed. The results indicate that the levels of technical efficiency vary among the different governorates of wheat production in Egypt.
