Relative importance of rice in tropical Africa and the need to increase the farm level economic data base



Relative importance of rice in tropical Africa and the need to increase the farm level economic data base



Rice in Africa Proceedings of a conference held at the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture, Ibadan, Nigeria, 7-11 March 1977: 75-91



This paper considers rice in perspective vis-a-vis the other principal crops grown in tropical Africa. Aggregate production estimates are derived on a regional basis for two time periods (an early and late period). The relative growth rates in production have been estimated for each of six food crops, including rice.
