In this regard, efficiency analysis of sugar beet firms was the main objective of this study that was performed using Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA). This analysis using documentary data of these firms in 2004 year showed that optimum management of using some effective inputs including labor and technical management of increasing target product value conduce the promotion of technical efficiency in the firms which in the managerial efficiency compared to others weren't at desirable level. However, when the firms are managed in an efficient manner, full-scale changes are effective on improving their technical efficiency. Herein, the technical efficiency of each firms were analyzed and suggestions were presented.
