SOIL DEGRADATION, TECHNICAL CHANGE AND GOVERNMENT POLICIES IN SOUTHERN MALI

Timothy Dalton and William Masters ()

No 21033, 1997 Annual meeting, July 27-30, Toronto, Canada from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: This study links intertemporal optimization to a biophysical crop growth model finding that agricultural intensification does not dramatically degrade soils in southern Mali. Productivity growth can be sustained through adoption of new techniques, particularly with policy reforms to reduce marketing costs and tax the use of common-property resources.
