    There is a common view and belief that women are the ones that do the farming in Africa while the men do not work much. This paper seeks to find explanations to why land productivity is lower on land rented out by female landlord households than on land rented out by male landlord households in the Ethiopian highlands. The authors find that female landlords have tenants who are older, own less oxen, are more related, and under longer-term contracts.

    Although a large theoretical literature discusses the possible inefficiency of sharecropping contracts, the empirical evidence on this phenomenon has been ambiguous at best. Household-level fixed-effect estimates from about 8,500 plots operated by households that own and sharecrop land in the Ethiopian highlands provide support for the hypothesis of Marshallian inefficiency. At the same time, a factor adjustment model suggests that the extent to which rental markets allow households to attain their desired operational holding size is extremely limited.

    This paper provides evidence from one of
    the poorest countries of the world that the property rights
    matter for efficiency, investment, and growth. With all land
    state-owned, the threat of land redistribution never appears
    far off the agenda. Land rental and leasing have been made
    legal, but transfer rights remain restricted and the
    perception of continuing tenure insecurity remains quite
    strong. Using a unique panel data set, this study

    While the economic returns to using
    chemical fertilizer in Africa can be large, application
    rates are low. This study explores whether this is due to
    missing and imperfect markets. Results based on a panel
    survey of Ethiopian farmers suggest that while fertilizer
    markets are not altogether missing in rural Ethiopia, high
    transport costs, unfavorable climate, price risk, and
    illiteracy present formidable hurdles to farmer
