|The wheat crop in many countries of the world has faced fluctuations in production despite its importance, which affects the production of those countries that want to achieve self-sufficiency in the wheat crop, including Iraq. Therefore, it was important to search for technical means and methods used to increase local production in the face of an increasing population, coupled with increasing productivity and reducing production costs. The research aimed to measure technical efficiency and capacity efficiency in light of the change and stability of capacity returns and to measure economic efficiency with its components (technical efficiency and specialized efficiency).
And estimating the volume of resources that achieved the economic efficiency of wheat farms in Anbar Governorate (Al-Ramadi), and measuring the technical efficiency and economic efficiency of the farms of the study sample, which included factors (area- quantity of seeds- quantity of fertilizers- quantity of control resources and pesticides - family work and automated work). Depending on the data envelope analysis method. The results showed that the technical efficiency of the farms of the study sample in light of the stability of the capacity return and the change in the capacity return amounted to more than (26%), it is noted that the farms that achieved full technical efficiency reached (46%), and therefore (6%) of the farms achieved efficiency Technical and specialized, which means that it is economically efficient.
