RATES OF RETURN TO PRIVATE AGRICULTURAL EXTENSION: EVIDENCE FROM TWO FARM MANAGEMENT CENTERS IN EL SALVADOR

Daniel Solis () and Boris Bravo-Ureta

No 22186, 2003 Annual meeting, July 27-30, Montreal, Canada from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: This paper evaluates the economic and the financial viability of implementing private farm management centers (FMC) in El Salvador. In doing so, an ex ante cost-benefit analysis is performed. The results of this analysis suggest that a combination of better farm prices (paid and received), reallocation of resources, and crop diversification that would be promoted by a FMC can lead to an increase in farm level profits that is sufficient to cover the operation of the center and to still generate net gains in household income.
