Consumers' Perceptions and Willingness to Pay for Organic Vegetable in Benin and Ghana AgEcon
Nouhoheflin, Theodore; Coulibaly, Ousmane; Cherry, Andy J.; Al-Hassan, Ramatu M.; Adegbola, Patrice Ygue.
Vegetable plays important roles in the socio-economic development in West Africa. It contributes to insuring food security, provides raw materials for local industries, generates foreign exchange and provides employment and incomes for most of the population. However some health hazards are caused by the misuse of chemical on vegetable. This study is undertaken within the framework of the research project: Public-private partnerships for development and implementation of entomopathogenic viruses as biopesticides for key lepidopteran pests in Ghana and Benin. It assesses the potential market of organic vegetables and analyse consumers awareness and perceptions of chemical pesticide residues in vegetables and assess the premium levels that consumers are...

Insecticide Use on Vegetables in Ghana: Would GM Seed Benefit Farmers? AgEcon
Horna, J. Daniela; Smale, Melinda; Al-Hassan, Ramatu M.; Falck-Zepeda, Jose Benjamin; Timpo, Samuel E..
Tomato, cabbage and garden egg (African eggplant, or Solanum Aethiopicum) are important crops for small-scale farmers and migrants in the rural and peri-urban areas of Ghana. Genetic modification (GM) has the potential to alleviate poverty through combating yield losses from pests and diseases in these crops, while reducing health risks from application of hazardous chemicals. This ex-ante study uses farm survey data to gauge the potential for adoption of genetically-engineered varieties, estimate the potential impact of adoption on farm profits, and highlight economic differences among the three crops. Farmer's expenditures on insecticides are below the economic optimum in all three crops, and the estimated function for damage abatement shows that...

Potential Impacts of a Green Revolution in Africa – the Case of Ghana AgEcon
Breisinger, Clemens; Diao, Xinshen; Thurlow, James; Al-Hassan, Ramatu M..
Agricultural growth in Africa has accelerated, yet most of this growth has been driven by land expansion. Land expansion potential is reaching its limits, urging governments to shift towards a green revolution type of productivity-led growth. Given the huge public investments required, this paper aims to assess the potential impacts of a green revolution. Results from a CGE model for Ghana show that green revolution type growth is strongly pro-poor and provides substantial transfers to the rest of the economy, thus providing a powerful argument to raise public expenditure on agriculture to make a green revolution happen in Africa.

Regional Disparities in Ghana: Policy Options and Public Investment Implications AgEcon
Al-Hassan, Ramatu M.; Diao, Xinshen.
The development pattern in Ghana is characterised by a north-south divide in which the north lags far behind the south. Ghana has achieved sustained growth and poverty reduction during the 1990s, but such growth did not benefit the three poor northern regions and the development gap has increased between the south and north. One of the most important reasons is that much of the growth has been generated by export agriculture in which northern Ghana has little contribution if any. This paper sets out to identify avenues for pro-poor growth in Ghana, focussing on agricultural opportunities, particularly in northern Ghana. Using an economywide, multimarket model and based on time series production data between 1991 and 2000 and Ghana Living Standards Survey...

Vegetable Production and Pesticide Use in Ghana: Would GM Varieties Have an Impact at the Farm Level? AgEcon
Horna, J. Daniela; Timpo, Samuel E.; Al-Hassan, Ramatu M.; Smale, Melinda; Falck-Zepeda, Jose Benjamin.
The objective of this study is to evaluate pesticide use as an important factor affecting potential adoption and farm level impact of genetically modified (GM) vegetable varieties in Ghana. Tomato is the most consumed vegetable and a food security crop. Cabbage is a vegetable of growing importance but limited cultivation and is produced in urban areas. Garden egg is a native African crop of wide consumption and importance for rural economies. Farm level information was collected in randomly selected sites in southern and central regions of Ghana. Partial budget analysis shows that investments in pesticides are rather low, especially for tomato and garden egg. Analysis of production using an abatement framework shows that insecticide amounts are significant...
