Yigezu Yigezu, Tamer Al-Shater, Zewdie Bishaw, Abdoul Aziz Niane, Aden A. Aw-Hassan. (25/2/2017). Income and Consumption Impacts of Improved Faba bean Varieties and Rotation with Wheat: A Moroccan Case.
While the benefits of legumes for soil health are well documented, the literature is scanty on their economic benefits. Applying propensity score matching and endogenous switching regression to a nationally representative sample of 1230 farm households from Morocco, this paper provided empirical evidence that the individual and combined adoption of improved faba bean varieties and faba beans – wheat rotation led to higher yields, net-returns, and household consumption of faba-beans respectively. These results point to the need for enhancing wider adoption of improved legume varieties and legume-cereal rotations through, among others, creating better access to extension and certified seed delivery services.
