A vertical analysis was conducted on the production efficiency changes (2004-2013) of three solanum and gourd vegetables—tomato, cucumber and eggplant of Guangzhou City by using DEA-Malmquist Index method. Meanwhile, in this paper, a horizontal analysis on the production efficiency (of 2012) of the three vegetables of Guangzhou was conducted by using DEA-BC2 model based on input. The results showed that: (1)From 2004 to 2013, the increasing rates of annual average total factor productivity and annual average technical progress were above 0; (2)Technical progress was the main driving force of total factor productivity, which was less affected by technical efficiency. (3) In 2012, the cucumber production of Guangzhou achieved optimal scale efficiency and optimal comprehensive technical efficiency while open field tomato and eggplant production did not reach optimal pure technical efficiency because of unreasonable allocation of resources and the excessive input of factors such as excess of material and service costs, labor costs, land costs and so on.
