Abstract
Badany jest wpływ polityki agrarnej na efektywność techniczną (ET) ukraińskiego sektora roślin w 2010 roku. Zastosowano dwie metody dla oceny wyników ET: analizę stochastycznej granicznej funkcji produkcji Cobba-Douglasa (SFA) oraz metodę obwiedni danych (DEA). Regiony o wysokiej efektywności technicznej są badane pod kątem polityki agrarnej. Publikowana analiza pokazuje, że przeciętnie dzierżawa gruntów przez różnego typu przedsiębiorstwa związane z sektorem rolnym wpływa na wzrost ET, natomiast dzierżawa przez gospodarstwa rolne obniża tę efektywność. Porównanie obecnych wyników TE z wynikami sprzed 16 lat pokazuje zróżnicowanie regionalnych zmian, ale również ogólną poprawę ET na Ukrainie. (abstrakt oryginalny)

This study investigates the impact of land policy on the technical efficiency (TE) of the Ukrainian crop sector for the year 2010. Two approaches are used to estimate TE scores: stochastic frontier analysis (SFA) and data envelopment analysis (DEA). Regions with high TE are examined in terms of land policies. Current analysis shows that overall, lease of land by all types of agricultural enterprises contributes to the increase of TE and lease of land by farming enterprises decreases efficiency. Comparison of current TE scores with TE scores estimated sixteen years ago shows differences in regional progress but the overall increase of TE in Ukraine. (original abstract)
