Estimated equations analyzed econometrictly and marginal analysis belonging to the each estimated equations which are marginal production elasticity. Production elasticity of function, coefficient of efficiency and AES were analyzed and commented. In the light of findings, it can be said that farming income might be increased by efficient usage of factors in the farms. It was determined that the amount of fertilizer used and number of cows grown compare to the present stable capacity were unsufficient in the farms.
