Economic growth of the country is highly linked to the success of the agricultural sector. This could done by manipulative appropriate ability building program to train additional development agents and to provide refreshment training for development agents. The result of the study indicated that extension contact has positive and significant effect on technical, allocative and economic efficiencies. In many instances, benefiting from digital content also requires English literacy or familiarity with another widely spoken language. Market-oriented production in Sub-Saharan Africa SSA can play a significant role in the households of smallholder farmers if sustainable market integration is embraced Xinshen et al. Among the five factors of production, the cost of land and labor accounted for the highest share
Footnote 5 There are many theoretical frameworks for competitiveness at farm level that includes, for instance, those developed by Buckley et al. Four output and nine input types were used to calculate the efficiency scores for each farm. A survey, which included demographic questions as well as an empowerment scale, was administered to respondents from both groups. According to a GSMA report, of the million-plus farmers in the 69 surveyed countries, about million had a mobile phone; only 13 million had both a mobile phone and a mobile money account. Hence, these variables simultaneously explain the difference in efficiency among sampled farmers. It is the second most consumed cereal crop in Ethiopia next to maize.
The impact of climate change on smallholder and subsistence agriculture. However, recent studies have indicated that the majority of smallholder farmers are being excluded from the significant growth opportunities offered by HVMCs Fernandez-Stark et al. The distribution of the technical efficiency scores showed that about Lenders accept rice as collateral because real-time, digital tracking assures them the product wasn't lost or damaged in the post-harvest process. Besides, wheat straw is commonly used as a roof thatching material and as a feed for animals . Currently, most developing countries are struggling to secure an adequate and nutritious food supply to match rising demand through various strategies of increasing agricultural production capacity and enhancing the commercialisation of farm produce Muhanji et al.

Agricultural commercialisation in coffee growing areas of Ethiopia. It is clear that agricultural sector has an important role considering that sufficient food needs to be produced for approximately 55 million SA population DAFF, Keywords: animal recording, developing countries, indigenous livestock, novel traits, smallholder farmers Introduction The South African SA livestock industry is based on a well-established dairy, beef and small stock industry where selection and breeding practices have been in existence for more than four decades.
Ferguson, and Spyros S. As we approach the end of this century, the postal communications market is seeing a new set of rules coming into play which can be summarized as follows: 1 power is being transferred to the demand side; 2 economies of scale may be exhausted; 3 there is a tendency for the frontiers of the postal business to become more blurred; 4 a steady flow of new operators is emerging onto the market operating at ever lower costs; 5 new technologies are revolutionizing the concept of the postal business itself; and 6 the liberalization and deregulation of the market are the natural consequences of the main market forces.
Economic growth of the country is highly linked to the success of the agricultural sector. The distribution of the technical efficiency scores showed that about This result is in line with the empirical results of  and  Table 6. Kleindorfer, Boston: Kluwer Academic Publishers, p.
Similarly, the mean EE of the sample farmers was 0. Large and small livestock are primarily individual farms, while poultry and pigs tend to be large companies with vertical integration. Therefore, improvement of the soil status by applying organic manures and practicing different soil conservation techniques should have to done by farmers.
The purpose of the study was to gain a better understanding of empowerment in the selected farming communities and to identify factors that may contribute to empowerment, including the L3F programme. It accounts for about These counties were selected based on statistics from the Ministry of Agriculture on the relevance and intensity of the production and marketing of AIVs Government of Kenya GoK It draws on the concept of competitiveness at farm level.
First, smallholders in remote areas may be unaware of fair market prices.

The reasons for this vary and include increasing land fragmentation that occurs with increasing populations necessitating that individuals have less land to enable all to have land Chirwa The null hypothesis is to mean that the explanatory variables in the inefficiency effect model do not contribute significantly to the explanation of efficiency variation for wheat producing farmers.
Download preview PDF. Four output and nine input types were used to calculate the efficiency scores for each farm. Results and Discussion 5. In order for smallholders to sell their crop they must have access to markets, in many developing countries this does not currently exist in rural areas and will require extensive improvements in local infrastructure and services Leavy and Poulton Sampling technique and sample size determination Two stages random sampling procedures were employed to draw a representative sample.
This model is best suited for such analysis because of the nature of the dependent variable efficiency scoreswhich takes values between 0 and 1 and yield the consistent estimates for unknown parameter vector .
Unlike technical efficiency, studies conducted on economic efficiency EE of wheat are limited [17,18]. The small size of land holdings. Lucila A. Battese, and A. The responses were analysed and a regression model showing the factors that influenced empowerment was developed.measuring-and-maximising-value-for-money-in-cash-transfer-programmes Money Process (activities) Inputs Output Outcome Impact Economy Efficiency Effectiveness Cost-effectiveness Cost-efficiency Programme budget Set-up Roll-out Operational M&E Transfers delivered to beneficiaries E.g.
increased consumption, higher school attendance, improved. The benefit of smallholder production systems, in terms of reduced emissions and increased carbon sequestration should, therefore, be assessed taking household benefits such as resilience led-productivity enhancement and input use efficiency in due consideration.
