The 9 crops composed of wheat, barley, maize, chickpea, beet root, sunflower seed, lentils, cotton and potato. The value of marginal production for each factor was computed by using factor prices, and estimating Cobb- Douglas and Transcendental production function. The present allocation pattern of production function. The present allocation pattern of production factors were examined based on the values of marginal production, price of the production factors and economic principles.
