Abstract

This paper presents an estimate of the price elasticity of supply for tobacco output in Zimbabwe using an adapted Nerlovian model. The results indicate a short-run elasticity of +0.34 and a long-run elasticity of +0.81, suggesting that tobacco farmers are highly unresponsive to price changes. These estimates are similar to those obtained for tobacco in supply response studies conducted in other developing African countries.
