Multiobjective Programming of Income and Employment Generation in Small Scale Agriculture: A Case Study from Kenya


  • Mukhebi, Adrian Wekulo


The major objective of this paper is to investigate the feasibility of generating substantially higher (20 percent or more) income and employment in Kenyan small scale agriculture under various policy options, using data from a selected area. Specific objectives are to: assess the impact of a declining land-labour ratio upon farm enterprise combination; measure and contrast the income and employment generating capacity of two agricultural development strategies--one which pursues the income maximizing objective, the other the employment maximizing objective; determine an optimal tradeoff between the income maximizing and employment maximizing objectives; and draw some policy implications from the major results.
