Abstract

The objective of this paper is to clarify, on the basis of detailed farm level data derived from recent surveys,the importance of factors related to tenure security, farm size and credit availability in constraining farmers'agricultural investment. In particular, a direct measure of farmers'perceptions regarding tenure security will be utilized, as well as information on transactions in the credit market. The next section provides a description of the study areas. It is followed by a discussion of factors affecting farm investment and a description of investment patterns in the study areas. A formal model of farmers'consumption and investment decisions, and an econometric analysis are then presented and results are interpreted. The last section summarizes the paper.
