PhD-project 3 – Socio-economic impact – Simon N’cho

Short description

Assessing current and future economic, social and environmental impacts of parasitic weeds in rice in SSA


Assess the main socio-economic impact of parasitic weeds incidence and their control in rain-fed rice systems of SSA to provide relevant information for developing and prioritizing weed management strategies and policies at regional and national level


Multi-stage stratified and random  sample farmer interviews, con-joint analyses, econometric modelling and analyses

Expected outputs

  • Determinants of infestation and the magnitude of yield losses on farmers’ fields identified
  • Economic impact of infestation and control options on rice yields, production costs and revenues
  • Costs and efficiencies of management strategies
  • Rice farmers’ preferences for different management strategies
