Economic evaluation of output benefits under mixed cropping practice in a Nigerian farming community

Economic evaluation of output benefits under mixed cropping practice in a Nigerian farming community

Beitrage zur Tropischen Landwirtschaft und Veterinarmedizin 30(2): 155-161

The paper explores the economic opportunities under the traditional practice of mixed cropping in a Nigerian farming community. Incremental output benefits and their monetary equivalent were analysed. 120 small farmers in Ika local government area of Bendel State were studied as to their cropping patterns, input use, and outputs. A regression equation was used to determine the influence of the number of crops in a crop mixture on the gross margin per hectare.
