Viewed : 395 - Downloaded : 257 In this study, the level and the efficiency of input use in wheat production in Corum were examined. A Cobb-Douglas production function was estimated, using data collected from 27 farm holdings. Except for the chemical use, the relation between dependent and independent variables were statistically significant. An increase in land size and fertilizer level and labor use will result in an increase in gross revenue. It was also found that production factors were used below the optimum level.
