Economic analysis of production relationships among cash and food crops: the case of maize, sunflower and cotton production in Machakos district of Kenya
The results of a study which was carried out in 1989 to investigate why sunflower production in Machakos District, Kenya has been erratic and on the decline over the last ten years, are presented and discussed. The economic relationships in the production of sunflower and food crops (such as maize) and other cash crops (such as cotton) are examined through the use of regression and correlation analyses.
