For that reason, results observed in one empirical setting cannot readily be transformed to other empirical settings. Thus, if results of the relationships between efficiency and size are of importance for policy and advisory matters in one country or region, it is necessary to do a separate analyses for these areas. The review of the literature also shows that farm size does not affect all efficiency scores in the same way. The signs of the coefficients could differ, or the effects were significant for some efficiency scores but insignificant for other scores; therefore, it is possible that enlarged farms have positive effects on some efficiency scores and negative effects on others.

The remaining farms receive efficiency scores in relation to the estimated best practice. Thus, efficiency scores ranks the farms, from the best to the worst in each particular sample. g. one line of production is more efficient than an other one. In research, such as the types of studies synthesized in this book, where researchers have investigated what affects efficiency, the practical implications of the results are that they answer the questions if and how the less efficient farms can become more efficient.
