The basic hypothesis is that links exist between technical efficiency in wild blueberry production and the financial performance of businesses in this sector. To test this hypothesis, relative technical efficiency was first measured using the appropriate quantitative methods. It was then possible to test how technical efficiency and financial performance on these farms are linked. This was done by comparing different financial ratios of each efficiency group.
From 2016 to 2017
Forty-six wild blueberry farms participated to this project.
