Résumé partiel
This study was carried out to find the competitiveness, comparative advantage of wheat production and policy effects in two selected villages of district Dehbala, Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan. This research uses mostly primary data of 2010 harvesting year. The primary data was supported by secondary data about prices of inputs and outputs market, CIF prices, and macroeconomic variables which were obtained from different national and international secondary sources. The data was analyzed using the Policy Analysis Matrix (PAM).The general characteristics of sampled respondents showed that that the average age of the sample farmers in the two villages was 41 years. In the two villages, a maximum of 48 % sampled farmer’s falls in the age group of 31-40 years. The literacy rate among the sampled respondents in the study area was much lower. The average farm budget of wheat crop shows that the cost of wheat production per acre includes 8 percent of the total per acre cost of land preparation, 5 percent of the total per acre cost of seed and sowing, 2 percent of the total per acre cost of irrigation, 6 percent of the total per acre cost of intercultural practices, 23 percent of the total per acre cost of manures and fertilizers, 27 percent of the total per acre cost of harvesting and threshing, 11 percent of the total per acre cost of land, and 17 percent of the total per acre cost of marketing and transportation in district Dehbala respectively. Furthermore, the average wheat yield of 1680 kg per acre was estimated for average farm and the wheat price of one kg of wheat at the farm gate is Rs.20 while the price of one kg of wheat in the wholesale market of Jalalabad was Rs. 26. Prices for inputs were collected from the local market existed during the same harvesting year and output was based on wholesale market prices of 2001-10.
