Abstract

This article investigates the effects of wheat genetic diversity and land degradation on risk and agricultural productivity in less favored production

we estimate a stochastic production function to evaluate the effects of variety richness, land degradation, and their interaction on the mean and

Econometric evidence shows that variety richness increases farm productivity. Variety richness also reduces yield variability but only for high levels

to improving farmer’s welfare.
