RISIKO-BRONNE EN GEPAARDGAANDE BESTUURSOPTREDE: PERSEPSIES VAN BESPROEIINGSBOERE BENEDE DIE P.K. LE ROUXDAM

Locally information is not available on farmers' perceptions of the importance of various risk-sources and the efficiency of management responses that may be employed to deal with risks. Information on these can be used as guidelines in formulating risk-management strategies and for risk-modelling. Producer prices and the uncertainty of tl1e weather are regarded as tlie most important risk-sources, while the scheduling of investments is regarded as one of the most important ways of counteracting risk. In certain cases socio-economic factors affect farmers' perceptions of the importance of risk-sources and management responses.
