ABSTRACTÂ This study aims to analyze the technical and economic efficiency of hybrid maize plantation in Porang â Paring Village, Sukolilo, Pati. This study was conducted on December 2017 until January 2018. The respondents participated in this study ate the hybrid maize farmers who are also the members of SidoMulyo 01 Farmer Group in Porang â Paring Village. This study implements a survey as the research method, while the respondents are determined by using Simple Random Sampling method with the number of respodents is as many as 57 farmers out of 133 hybrid maize farmers. The study analyzes the technical and economic efficiency by employing multiple linear regressions with Cobb-Douglas production function. The result of this study shows that the all production factors simultaneously influence the production of hybrid maize, and the land area, seeds, and pesticide production factors partially influence the production of hybrid maize. Meanwhile, urea, phonska, organic fertilizer, and labor factors are found to have no influence. All production factors, such as land area, seeds, urea, phonska fertilizer, pesticide and labor, are not technically. The land area, seeds, urea, phonska fertilizer, pesticide and labor factors are also not economically efficient.Â KeywordsÂ Â Â Â Â Â : efficiency, production factors, hybrid maize.
