An economic approach to assessing cotton cropping in North Cameroon






Cahiers Agricultures 8(1): 55-63

An economic approach to assessing cotton cropping in North Cameroon

Development of an economic land evaluation model that uses gross margin analysis to interpret response surface curves from the entire cotton area in North Cameroon for the 1982-85 seasons is documented. Results indicate that cotton production in the southern part of the cotton belt is more profitable than that in the north and is also more productive.
