Abstract

Available estimates of cocoa supply response in Ghana are derived from aggregate time series data. The present study presents results of a cross-section profit function analysis, based on farm-level data. The results are compared with those of previous time series studies, and the methodologies of both types of study are compared and evaluated. Copyright 1998 by Oxford University Press.
