A PRELIMINARY ANALYSIS OF AGRICULTURAL MARKETING CHARACTERISTICS OF FARMERS IN THE EASTERN REGION OF UPPER VOLTA

This paper aims at deepening and understanding of the agricultural marketing characteristics of farmers in the Eastern region of Upper Volta, West Africa. This work was requested by the Eastern Regional Development Organization (ORD) of the Voltaic government and the local U.S. AID Mission to provide some early guidepoints in the preparation of proposals for a major multi-donor integrated rural development project. The paper analyzes, at the farmer's level, utilization of crops, sales of purchases of crops and animals, other marketing transactions of farmers (trading in crops, processing of crops, gathering of fruit and nuts), and farmer's level of participation in the marketing system.
