Abstract

Government subsidies designed to encourage cotton production in Benin have resulted in unsustainable agricultural production practices. Properly introduced, precision farming technology can help farmers improve their management practices and stop the damages being done to the environment. An economic analysis of the impacts of subvention policies is performed. Results show that an increase in input cost has a marginal impact on farmers' production strategy.
