COMMERCIALIZATION AS A STRATEGY FOR RECONSTRUCTION IN AGRICULTURE

Farmers commercialize in order to acquire other goods. Commercialization leads to improved production and welfare, accelerates linkages and eases fmancing conditions. Logit models were estimated to determine socio-economic factors that distinguish more commercially oriented farmers from moderately commercial and less commercial farmers. The more commercial fanners are more likely to have used credit, formal marketing channels, kept farming records, listened to agricultural information. These fanners require more land. The less commercial groups require a comprehensive approach that include credit and market facilities, input and technology transfers, training, price guarantees and crop insurance. The objective should be to achieve overall commercialisation.
