Are Pumpkins The Least Efficient Crop to Grow?

In terms of yield per square foot, are pumpkins the, or one of the least efficient crops to grow?

I think for standard orange pumpkin vine, we'll need about 15 to 20 square feet for each vine. Each vine yields about two pumpkins. In terms of weight and market value, the pumpkins have low yield.

Similar statement can be made as corns and several others.

Onion and other root crops are some of the most efficient crops to grow.
