Agricultural producer price setting in Zimbabwe: with special reference to pan-territorial and pan-seasonal pricing for maize

, : Agricultural producer price setting in Zimbabwe: with special reference to pan-territorial and pan-seasonal pricing for maize. Working Paper Department of Agricultural Economics and Extension, University of Zimbabwe (AEE 8/88): 23

The background to Zimbabwe agricultural price policy setting and the impact of current procedures, traditionally based on costs of production, are discussed. Prices are fixed during harvest in April for all commodities. While farmers favour the cost of production approach, from a national perspective it is essential to find an independent basis for judging prices, and that more economic efficiency (rather than yield maximizing, technical efficiency) is given greater emphasis.
