Bambang Utoyo, Clara Yolandika


The research aims to analyze the technical efficiency of palm oil plantation in Lampung. This research was conducted at the center of palm oil in Lampung, including Mesuji, Central Lampung, Tulang Bawang, North Lampung, Way Kanan, and South Lampung, where in each district taken 4 to 5 farmers to be respondent research. The research respondents consisted of 27 farmers spread over six districts. The study was conducted in June - August 2017. Data analysis method used is quantitative analysis. Quantitative analysis is used to analyze the efficiency of productions in palm oil farming using Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA) method. The result of this research was (1) based on the measurement of technical efficiency of palm oil farming, the respondent farmers who have been efficient from the use of all inputs are only 10 farmers (37.04 percent) who are technically efficient because they have performance efficiency value equal to 1.00. An efficient farmer has achieved zero slack assumptions on all input supply chain variables used; and (2) Based on reference comparison of farmer 1 and 10, farmers 1 had a supply chain that was due to the technical efficiency of farmers 1,000 was equal to one, while the value of farmers' supply chain efficiency was only 0.702. There were differences in the value of input variables on each respondent, so there were different slack inputs and slack outputs of both.
