Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Considering the agricultural contracts, a systematic data collection is believed that can help to build further knowledge and can support more specific research projects as need. There is no viable alternative for learning about the nature and importance of contracting in agriculture. However, collecting data from individual firms contracting parties is a difficult task even with full cooperation of contracting parties. The summary of information of responses to questions about specific contract characteristics coupled with sectoral descriptions would provide general information that individual researchers can utilize launching investigations on more specific topic as the need.
