An impact evaluation of technology adoption by smallholders in Sichuan, China: the case of sweet potato-pig systems AgEcon
Lapar, Ma. Lucila A.; Ngoc Toan, Nguyen; Zou, Chengyi; Liu, Jinyuan; Li, Xianglin; Randolph, Thomas F..
We employ propensity score matching (PSM) framework to examine the impact of sweet potato-based feed technology adoption on household-based pig production in Sichuan, China. An ex post survey in six villages was conducted in 2009, of which five villages were in project intervention sites (exposed area) and one village in the same township but not exposed to project intervention (non-exposed area). We randomly selected 111 households in the exposed areas from the list of households previously interviewed in a baseline survey and 53 households from non-exposed area. Matching estimators such as nearest neighbor matching (NNM), radius matching (RM) and kernel matching (KM) were used to estimate average treatment effects. Results indicate positive net benefit...

HOW BIG IS YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD? SPATIAL IMPLICATIONS OF MARKET PARTICIPATION BY SMALLHOLDER LIVESTOCK PRODUCERS AgEcon
Lapar, Ma. Lucila A.; Holloway, Garth J.; Ehui, Simeon K..
Identifying ways to increase market participation by smallholder producers requires identifying variables that influence market access. This is usually achieved using probit estimation. An important phenomenon affecting entry decision-making is the entry decision of a 'similar' household, where similarity is measured in terms of 'location.' When neighborhood influences are significant, it is important to allow for them in discrete decision contexts, such as probit estimation. This paper, therefore, assesses the magnitude of neighborhood influences in smallholder decisions concerning market entry. The empirical model is based on a cross-section of (110) farms situated in northern Philippines, visited (twice) in the 2000-2001 production year (a panel of...

Is Contract Farming Really Pro-poor? Empirical Evidence from Northern Vietnam AgEcon
Tiongco, Marites M.; Lapar, Ma. Lucila A.; Costales, Achilles; Son, Nguyen Tuan; Jabbar, Mohammad A.; Staal, Steven J..
Maintaining smallholder competitiveness in the changing market for pigs and pig meat remains an important development challenge, particularly in the context of pro-poor public policymaking. With the ongoing rapid changes in market organizations to respond to changing consumer demand and market requirements, there are viable institutional options and market organizations for smallholders to remain active participants in the pig industry where they are substantially contributing in terms of total output. Results from this study suggest that there is limited scope for smallholder pig producers to participate in formal contracts; however, smallholders were found to participate in informal contracts with cooperatives and with input/output traders that...

Market outlet choices in the context of changing demand for fresh meat: implications for smallholder inclusion in pork supply chain in Vietnam AgEcon
Lapar, Ma. Lucila A.; Toan, Nguyen Ngoc; Que, Nguyen Ngoc; Jabbar, Mohammad A.; Tisdell, Clement A.; Staal, Steven J..
This paper reports on the findings of a study to investigate market outlet choice decision-making of urban consumers in Vietnam with regards to fresh pork purchases and generate empirical evidence on factors that influence these choices. Data from a survey of 600 consumers in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City was used to estimate a multinomial logit model of market outlet choice based on three alternatives: traditional temporary market outlets, permanent open markets, and modern retail outlets. Results suggest that market outlet choice by consumers of fresh pork in urban cities of Vietnam is conditioned by factors related to mobility and level of affluence, time budgets, concerns about food safety and hygiene, proximity to market outlets, and geographical...

Measuring Cost Efficiency in Smallholder Dairy Farms: Empirical Evidence from Northeast Thailand AgEcon
Lapar, Ma. Lucila A.; Garcia, Alexis Arthur B.; Aditto, Satit; Suriya, Patcharee.
This paper investigates smallholder dairy competitiveness from estimates of a translog cost frontier using data from 130 smallholder dairy farms in six provinces of Northeast Thailand. Cost efficiency estimates indicate that there is significant scope for improving cost efficiency in smallholder dairy farms in Northeast Thailand, and costs can be reduced by 26 percent on average. The empirical results also strongly suggest that smaller farms are more cost efficient than larger ones within this sample of smallholder dairy farms. Proper herd management for maintaining an optimal milking cows-herd size ratio coupled with yield-enhancing technologies can enhance cost efficiency. Feed technology options that can potentially reduce costs while maintaining...

Natural Protection from International Competition in the Livestock Industry: Analysis, Examples and Vietnam's Pork Market as a Case AgEcon
Tisdell, Clement A.; Lapar, Ma. Lucila A.; Staal, Steven J.; Que, Nguyen Ngoc.
In some countries, local agricultural products (particularly livestock products) are shielded from international competition by ‘natural’ factors influencing the purchase of products. These factors include strong local tastes (or preferences) that favour the local product and the absence (or relative absence) of complementary retail outlets or home appliances suitable for storing and preparing potential imported substitutes. The desire for fresh meat rather than chilled or frozen meat, the absence or limited accessibility of supermarket outlets and limited refrigeration possibilities in homes can limit imports into developed countries of meat supplied by developed countries. From consumer’s perspectives these fresh or raw products are significantly...

Scale and access issues affecting smallholder hog producers in an expanding peri-urban market: southern Luzon, Philippines AgEcon
Costales, Achilles; Delgado, Christopher L.; Catelo, Maria Angeles; Lapar, Ma. Lucila A.; Tiongco, Marites M.; Ehui, Simeon K.; Bautista, Anne Zillah.
Research has shown that gainful participation in livestock markets is an important means of reducing poverty in developing countries, particularly for rural and periurban households. The rapid growth in demand for meat and milk, along with the corresponding expansion of livestock markets to connect consumers and suppliers, presents real opportunities for smallholders to generate income by raising livestock. Nevertheless, the structural changes associated with increasing urbanization taking place in these markets, the greater integration between domestic and global markets, and the emergence of a more stringent regulatory environment also present significant threats to participation by poor households. Further, as the market for livestock products rapidly...
