THE SOCIOECONOMIC DETERMINANTS OF ASSET CONTROL CHOICES IN ALGERIAN AGRICULTURE

This study aims to investigate the effect of main socioeconomic factors of technology adoption, with special reference to the role of assets specificity in farm management. The contribution of this study is largely empirical by testing some hypotheses in Algerian context. We investigate the determinants of technology asset control choices in the agricultural production in order to conclude on the constraints of farm extent and its implications for farm management and economic efficiency. Our main results assert that the technology asset control choice is determined by the farm size, organizational form, human capital, social status, and geographical location. These findings corroborate the existing theories and generate some empirical implications, leading to propose some directions for future research.
