This study uses cross-sectional data from a sample of 65 small to medium scale farmers. A stochastic production frontier approach is used to estimate the farmer-specific technical efficiencies, which are then explained by socio-economic and demographic factors.

The Ugandan case on internal imbalances in food distribution presupposes that barriers to free movement of food commodities such as import restrictions, trade bans and poor intra-regional infrastructure could hinder the flow of food commodities between surplus and deficit countries within the East African region.
