Input use efficiency

The concept of efficiency focuses on avoiding or reducing wastage of a resource. Input efficiency is supposed to increase the performance of the system and minimize losses to the environment. It is important to note that input use efficiency should not be used by itself as an indicator but should be used along with yields. The reason for this is that input use efficiency is often highest at low yields. Farmers are striving to increase yields — not just input use efficiency.
