Abstract: 

In this study, technical efficiencies of wheat production in 78 towns of Isfahan, Tehran, Fars, Khorasan Razavi, Kerman, Ghom and Markazi Provinces have been determined during 2001-2005. For this purpose, Tran slog production function was selected as the optimum functional form for estimation of technical efficiency measured using stochastic frontier method. Results showed that farmers mean technical efficiencies in townships studied was 88 percent with minimum of 59 percent and maximum of 97 percent. Also, the results showed that Isfahan province with 91.8 percent and Kerman with 76.8 percent had highest and lowest technical efficiencies in wheat production, respectively.
