Abstract :

This study uses the Ricardian approach to examine the economic impact of climate change on agriculture in Zimbabwe. Net farm revenue is regressed against various climate, soil, hydrological and socio-economic variables to help determine the factors that influence variability in net farm revenues. The study is based on data from a survey of 700 smallholder farming households interviewed ...

Abstract :

In the experiment weed infestation in specialized crop rotations (with increased percentage of cereal crops) and monocultures of those crops was assessed. The studies included the fifth cycle of four-course crop rotation: 1) potato + -oats-pea-winter rye, 2) potato + -oats-winter rye, 3) potato + -winter rye, 4) oats-winter rye, 5) monoculture of winter rye. Before harvest assessment of weed i ...

Abstract :

This study uses the Ricardian approach to analyze the impact of climate change on Ethiopian agriculture and to describe farmer adaptations to varying environmental factors. The study analyzes data from 11 of the country's 18 agro-ecological zones, representing more than 74 percent of the country, and survey of 1,000 farmers from 50 districts. Regressing of net revenue on climate, househ ...
