The Economics of Oil Palm Production in Chiapas, Mexico

This study focuses on the economics of a scheme to plant 50,000 hectares to smallholder-produced oil palm in the Mexican State of Chiapas, a region plagued with rural poverty and political unrest. The analysis concludes that oil palm is potentially the most profitable crop for the Soconusco region of Chiapas and offers suggestions for implementing the project.
