Synopsis: Agricultural growth in Ethiopia (2004-2014): Evidence and drivers

Also available in

Ethiopia’s agricultural sector has recorded remarkable rapid growth in the last decade. This note documents aspects of this growth process. Over the last decade, there have been significant increases – more than a doubling – in the use of modern inputs, such as chemical fertilizers and improved seeds, explaining part of that growth. However, there was also significant land expansion, increased labor use, and Total Factor Productivity (TFP) growth estimated at 2.3 percent per year.

Yield and economic benefits of common bean (Phaseolus vulgaris) and soybean (Glycine max) inoculation in Northern Tanzania

Also available in

"On-farm experiments were conducted in farmers’ fields at 12 different sites in the 2 districts of Moshi and Rombo in northern Tanzania during the 2000–01 cropping season to study the effects of (brady)rhizobial inoculation in combination with P supply on growth and grain yields of soybean and common bean, and to assess the economic returns of these different technologies to farmers. A low level of N was included as an indicator of endogenous soil N status.

Community natural resource management: the case of woodlots in northern Ethiopia

Also available in

This paper examines the nature of community management of woodlots and investigates the determinants of collective action and its effectiveness in managing woodlots...in Tigray, northern Ethiopia. We find that collective management of woodlots generally functions well in Tigray.... The findings suggest collective action may be more beneficial and more effective when managed at a more local level, when the role of external organizations is more demand-driven, and when promoted in intermediate population density communities more remote from markets.
