The article presents the diversification of agriculture efficiency of Chinese provinces in 2013 based on the Data Envelopment Analysis method. The model features the following variables: 1 effect (value of purchased agricultural products) and 5 inputs (area of agricultural land, number of people employed in agriculture, use of fertilizers, number of tractors, livestock). This article presents the use of input-oriented CCR and BCC model, to determine overall technical efficiency, pure technical efficiency and scale efficiency of agriculture in Chinese provinces. The analysis gives the possibility of creating a ranking of provinces. The highest agriculture efficiency during the period was achieved by 7 provinces (in CCR model) and 16 provinces (in BCC model). The results point out reasons for inefficiency and provide directions of improvement for inefficient Decision Making Units.
