000054460 520__ $$aThe main question which this research originally sought to answer was whether or not
inorganic fertilizers are generally profitable used alone on maize, or with pesticides on
cotton, for small farmers in Zambia. Rather than give a definitive answer for each Zambian
farmer, the authors developed a framework for analysis and applied that framework to
locations with sufficient information. Using simple value/cost ratios, researchers estimated
the potential profit of fertilizer for those sites. Then, using the distributions of response rates
of the crops (incremental yields) found in the trials and output prices based on regional price
series, the probabilities are estimated for VCRs, using a minimum of VCR of 2.0 for
profitability. The results for selected locations and input applications are then presented, as
examples and indicators of fertilizer profitability in Zambia.
