Modeling the Determinants of Semi-Subsistent and Commercial Land Uses in an Agricultural Frontier of Southern Mexico: A Switching Regression Approach
Colin Vance and
International Regional Science Review, 2004, vol. 27, issue 3, 326-347
The authors analyze the consequences of imperfect output markets for the land-use decisions of semi-subsistence farmers in an agricultural frontier of southern Mexico. The approach is motivated by previous applications of the agriculture household model establishing that the farm householdâ€™s productionand consumptiondecisions are analytically nonseparable when markets are not used. Econometric results generated by a switching regression model suggest the importanceof distinguishing the discrete choiceof market participation from thatof area cultivated.
