Commercialization of subsistence agriculture

Income and nutritional effects in developing countries

This paper evaluates the competition between cash crop and food crop production and its effects on income and nutrition in developing countries. Aggregate country data are used for a rough assessment of the scope and development of that competition. Available research is reviewed within a conceptual framework of the potential effects of increased cash cropping on nutrition.
