Abstract: A need in Sahelian agriculture is to transform from traditional farming to more modern systems. This paper presents a safety-first type of risk programming model, using complementary programming, to assess the impacts of new agricultural technology. Model results indicate that some new technologies are economically attractive to Malian households.
