These results imply that the farmers were technically efficient in the use of fertilizer, chemical and farm size. The results also show that seed use was not significant and the negative value indicated that increasing the seed would not have any positive impact on the output. The garden egg farmers identified constraints such as lack of government support, inadequate capital, lack of improved varieties, high cost of input, pest and diseases incidences, lack of market and lack of storage facilities. Conclusively, garden egg production was found to be profitable, with positive relationship between farm size, seed and fertilizer. It is recommended that garden egg farmers should dedicate more land to garden egg production, as a means of saving cost, and also government should provide garden egg farmers with modern irrigation facilities so as to overcome irrigation problem faces by the farmers.
