Abstract

Herbicide use has grown rapidly in Mali over the past decade and a half. Quantities imported have more than doubled since the year 2000, while unit prices have fallen by 50% in CFAF francs (Table 1). Unlike fertilizer, which receives a 50% government-financed price subsidy, herbicide users pay full commercial price. While large-scale government subsidies have fueled recent increases in fertilizer availability, rapid growth in herbicide use has emerged as a result of purely private sector supply systems meeting growing on-farm demand.
