  • Product Description
This work addresses the empirical issues pertaining to technology adoption decisions, agricultural commodity price volatility and the effects of remittances on recipient households, combined with the motivation of migration decisions in Nepal under the theories of incomplete and imperfect markets. This work applies a number of econometric models to test a number of the hypotheses using both panel and cross-section data from the Nepal Living Standard Surveys and time series data for commodity prices and farm yields. The findings show that as geographical heterogeneity seems to be major constraint for market integration, well-functioning factor markets and well-developed infrastructure emerge as the precondition for agricultural-led growth in Nepal. Moreover, the study also shows that rural people with larger family size and higher per capita income without remittances have higher probability to go migrate. Evidence further shows that remittances decrease work hours in a number of sectors, but increases work hours of hired labour in remittance receiving households. Remittance income seems to be a substitute of non-labour income for remittance-receiving households.
