A comparative analysis of tractor contract operations in Nueva Ecija, Philippines, 1972 and 1980 Paper presented at the joint ADC/IRRI Workshop on the Consequences of Small Rice Farm Mechanization in Asia, September 14-18, 1981: 31



Changes in tractor contract operations in Nueva Ecija between 1972 and 1980 were analyzed. Benefit-cost ratios were calculated for two-wheel and four-wheel tractors. The areas serviced for both tractor types were parameterized to determine the level of operation required to break-even. Results showed that, at current contract rates and with current utilization patterns, two-wheel tractor ownership from a purely profit-oriented viewpoint, is not viable.
