Structural Adjustment and Economic Efficiency of Rice Farmers in Northern Ghana


  • Abdulai, Awudu
  • Huffman, Wallace


Increasing agricultural productivity and employment in sub-Saharan African countries has received widespread attention in the literature on economic development and poverty alleviation. Agricultural growth, however, is linked to farm profits. Over the past few years, considerable research has examined agricultural efficiency in the region.1 This issue has gained attention in the light of structural adjustment programs—involving market liberalization, fiscal austerity, and currency devaluation— that are currently being implemented in many sub-Saharan African countries and global trade liberalization being pursued under the World Trade Organization.
