    Can conservation agriculture save tropical forests? The case of minimum tillage in Zambia

    Norwegian University of Life Sciences, 2017
    Minimum tillage (MT) is a key component in the promotion of conservation agriculture (CA). This paper asks whether MT reduces cropland expansion and thus deforestation. We develop a simple theoretical household model of land expansion, and test hypotheses by estimating a double hurdle model using household survey data from 368 smallholders in rural Zambia.
