Presentation: Tailoring Contract Farming to Smallholders: Experimental Evidence in Enrollment Impact, Insurance Provision and Communication Technologies

Agricultural transformation has been shifting towards more complex organizational forms like growing contract farming. This has led to research opportunities using administrative data and partnering with large companies for experiments. Some important questions to ask are about the impacts of linking farmers to contract farming and if this compliments contract farming with other markets.

This presentation is based on AMA Innovation Lab projects for the 2013 BASIS/I4 Technical Committee Meeting. This meeting gathered researchers affiliated with the Index Insurance Innovation Initiative (I4).

This presentation took place in University of California Davis, United States.
