Mixed and pure sharecropping in Nepal: empirical evidence supporting the traditional hypothesis
We analyse differences in input and output intensities across three comparative tenure regimes in Nepal, using two test methods: an F-test based on Hotelling's T2 statistic, and a test which adapts Shaban's (1987) methodology to include plot size and crop type. Our results reveal statistically significant differences in the three alternative systems of property rights assignments, which have implications for economic theory and policy relating to tenure systems.
