Key Findings

  • Production systems are competitive given current market prices and policy transfers.
  • Government policy incentives for small-scale rice farmers lead to inefficient use of scarce resources.
  • Trade policies increase the price of rice to consumers as well as producers.
  • Rice production in the study area is currently economically profitable without government incentives.
  • Competitiveness is driven by productivity hence policies that encourage adoption of improved technology would help sustain the competitiveness of rice production
