Low productivity in Agriculture has been observed to be a problem militating against increased and sustainable farm income.
The study therefore undertakes the farm level analysis of maize farmers in Ogbomoso Agricultural Zone of Oyo State.
A multistage sampling technique was used to select 120 farmers in the study area.
Data were collected and subjected to descriptive, inferential statistics and the Stochastic frontier production model was analyzed to determine the relationship between the dependent variable (maize output) and the independent variables and the technical inefficiency in farmers’ operation, The Return to Scale (RTS) was 2.773 in Ogbomoso South LGA, 0.271 in Orire LGA, 2.302 in Surulere LGA, 0.568 in Ogo oluwa LGA, and 0.587 in pooled data.
It was therefore concluded that there is a positive and significant relationship between farm size, seed used and maize output in Ogbomoso Agricultural Zone and also access to good quality seed have positive impact on output, and increase in size of production brings better output to the farmers.
It was recommended, among others, that efforts should be intensified on the part of extension agents in educating the farmers.
