Export Vegetable Production in Kenya under the EurepGAP Standard: Is Large “More Beautiful” than Small? AgEcon
Mausch, Kai; Mithofer, Dagmar; Asfaw, Solomon; Waibel, Hermann.
This paper defines three types of typical certified farms in Kenyan export production: smallholder farms, large-scale contracted farms, and exporter-owned farms. It assesses their economic performance, compares the financial cost of compliance with the EurepGAP standard, and analyses transaction costs. Results show that larger farms are not generally performing more efficiently compared to smallholders who implemented the EurepGAP standard. Despite higher monitoring costs as a result of the introduction of standards, smallholder vegetable producers remain an important source for the exporter companies.

Improved Legume Seed Demand Systems in Central Malawi: What Do Farmers' Seed Expenditures Say about Their Preferences? AgEcon
Kankwamba, Henry; Mangisoni, Julius H.; Simtowe, Franklin; Mausch, Kai; Siambi, Moses.
The overall objective of this paper is to assess the demand for improved groundnut, bean, and soybean seed in central Malawi. Specifically, it examines how smallholder farmers respond to changes in market prices of improved legume seed. It also assesses factors that affect the decision to participate in improved seed technology transfer. Considering four commodities namely groundnuts, beans, soybeans and maize, a staple food, the paper estimates a multivariate probit and a linear approximate of the Almost Ideal Demand System (LA/AIDS) using cross section data collected by ICRISAT in 2010. Uncompensated price and expenditure elasticities are reported for the LA/AIDS model. The paper finds high own price elasticities in all four commodities considered. It...
