This bibliography covers selected aspects of agricultural
development in Jamaica. The work involved a search of
sources available in the U.S. from October 1977 by the
senior author and visits to Jamaica in December and Feb-
ruary. Assistance was provided by Elizabeth Erickson
during the February trip and subsequent phases of the

It should be pointed out that the bibliography does not
provide a complete coverage of all aspects of agriculture,
nor of all sources. Thus, most material is 1962 or later,
certainly all is post 1945. Further, only a selection of
the technical literature has been made, with those consid-
ered narrowly agronomic omitted. Lack of time and the pur-
pose of the bibliography made this decision necessary
though regretable. Also a full listing of articles from
Farmer, the publication of the Jamaican Agricultural So-
ciety could not be included, again due to time constraints.
Finally, given time and locational constraints some works
will have been inadvertently omitted. We make our sin-
cere apologies to the authors.

The form of the entries is based on guidelines provided in
the University of Chizago Manual of Style, 12th Edition;
although a number of modifications have been made. Where
circulation of material is restricted, it is so noted.
Library locations in Jamaica, where known, are listed at
the end of each entry. Only one location is usually given
although it may also be found in other libraries. Lack of
such an annotation does not indicate that the material is
not available in Jamaica, especially in the case of journals
researched in the U.S. In some cases LC call numbers and
a U.S. location are noted. The abbreviations used are:

Develops a theory on benefits and costs of
trade area creation. Measures losses due
to lack of free trade for alternatives
suggested or present unions (CARIFTA, EEC
associates, CACM), and simple protection
for several Caribbean countries including
Jamaica. Price and income elasticities
were estimated for rice, flour and a number
on non-agricultural products (1959-67) and
used with export elasticities to estimate
losses from the various trade alternatives.
resultss showed present situation represents
a substantial loss of trade compared to
free trade and that alternative groupings
would do little to ameliorate this loss.

This paper discusses the current efforts
in CABIFTA to promote closer co-operation
in agricultural production and marketing
and some of the problems inherent in
developing such a strategy. Suggests
that given the common historical expe-
riences, the national aspirations, the
similarities in the physical and climatic
conditions in the region, co-operation in
agricultural activities will probably
depend in the final analysis on political
considerations and the degree of commit-
ment to regional economic integration.

Provides a 33 equation model to

describe the structure of the economy
over that period. Author categorizes
the model as descriptive (to help
understand the economy), rather than
for use for forecasting or policy
purposes. Model shows how economy
reacts to exogenous factors such as
exports and tourism. Has elasticities
for food imports which are considered
by author to be very high (1.11)
and indicative of 'overall inadequacy'

A critique of 'Development of Dependence
in Latin America and the Caribbean' by

more effective analysis than Girvan
suggests, that Seers has analysis of
the open-economy and that reference to
the evidence of the Cuban experience
would be relevant. Also questions
Ahiram's 1958 conclusion that Jamaica
has an unusually unequal income
distribution. 1963 study by Cumper gave

a lower coefficient than 1958, and thus
is no higher than ECLA estimates for
eight Latin American countries. Admits
that data limitations make conclusions
difficult to reach.

Although there are cross-sectional
studies of income distribution, there
is no reliable published information on
how income distribution in Jamaica has
changed over time. On basis of reports
on Commissioner of Income Tax, study
looks at data on relation of incomes
at top of scale to national income.
Analysis only permits limited conclusions
but suggests that unless tax machinery
has become more efficient, no substantial
shift at the upper end of the income
distribution occurred over the time

in the financial system, and foreign

briefly. The book seems valuable as a

agriculture vis-a-vis other sectors, and
for setting up some theoretical hypotheses.

arguments for industrialization; the

importance of dependency outlined by
Furtado, Best and Eeckford, plus Demas
argument for the effect of small size
requiring a greater role for exports and
more dependency. Suggests alternative of
trade between socialist countries, but
points out this has not changed nature of
exports in case of Cuba. Suggests alter-
native concepts of consumption goals are
also required.

that initial impact of imported inflation
was on the balance of payments though for

importance. Higher mark-ups for food
exist in rural areas, and the effect of
a change in import prices is greater.

The effect of British entry into EEC
on Caribbean cane growers is discussed
in the light of diversification programmes.
The main theme suggests that the planta-
tion is so deeply embedded in the culture
of the West Indies that structural changes
in the farm economy will be difficult.
Small farms for example are not farmed by
an indigenous peasantry like Central America.
However, plantation economy also results in
a greater awareness of outside world. Most
discussion is in regional terms. Refers to
a few Jamaican examples among others.

The paper aims to isolate some of the
prospective growth areas for agriculture
in the Commonwealth Caribbean (CA ICOM)
and to discuss constraints to growth.
Suggests stress on national specialization
rather than regional specialization involving
narrow range of plantation crops which are
dependent on protective tariffs. The live-
stock sector is identified as an area of
priority. Impediments to its development
include price control, land tenure and
marketing. Suggests that growth prospects
also exist in vegetables and fruit proces-
sing ii an export market can be found.

This analysis of possible association
between CAPIFTA and the EEC argues the
need for a dispassionate examination of
the barriers to access to the EEC market
rather than pre-occupation with judgements
as to the desirability or otherwise of the
various forms of Association. In the
final analysis, from an EEC point of
view, the form of Association appropriate
to CPRIFTA objectives could hinge not
necessarily on a list of products, long
or short, but on a single product.

function where the dependent variable
is the rate of migration (of specified

variable is road distance between
major population centres; average

towns over 2,000, proportion of
acreage in farms greater than 100 acres; pro-
portion 6 or more years school;
proportion unemployed. For adult
males distance and wage income dif-
ferential are the most significant
effects. The rate of unemployment,
degree of industrialization of origin
region, level of education in
destination and average size of land
("push factors") are also significant.
For females, income was not significant;

Presents thesis that development of
peasantry is circumscribed hy plantation
system, using Jamaica as example. Land
distribution is unequal and worst land sold
for redistribution. Unemployed labor
hired by estates and higher productivity
elsewhere is reflected in high labor wage
rates for other production. Credit is
available for plantations from metropolitan
source and other export producers also
have credit access. Government credit to
peasants is insufficient and involves
surrender of land titles, which are
confused due to joint ownership, etc.
Research is in export crops.

Material later incorporated into
Persistent Poverty. Analyzes
multi-national vertically integrated
plantation firm. Suggests that though
resource allocation is efficient for
the firm, it may be inefficient for
the country. Low raw material profit
may give higher firal product profits;
resource rigidity varies with vertical
integration (non-farm investments are
large and specific); land can be
under-utilized dependent on productivity
and cost of securing it. Pisk leads
to geographical dispersion so that
an increase in price can lead to an
overall supply increase but not in all
countries; and foreign exchange earnings
are modified by unfavorable terms of

trade, high import demands and second
round consumption of imports, etc.

first phase production is efficient
but at later stages there are cuts
at the extensive margin and rising
wages as labor moves to independent
use of abandoned land. Technology
can not be effectively introduced
to raise labor productivity because
of lack of capital, hence metayage is
used to encourage labor to work on

between 15 and 45 with at least one
child and 16 couples at birth control.
Does not look at economic role of single

or married women, though does provide
data on economic role of children--
considered a cost rather than benefit
by large majority because of desire for
education and non-agricultural occupation.
Ideal family size is quite low.

Concludes that the development of the
tourist industry: (1) has not been a
major influence on the availability of
cultivable lands on the agricultural
sector; (2) was an important factor in
the migration of population from key

agricultural areas to the urban centres;
(3) has placed agriculture at a dis-
advantage on account of low rates of
return in a number of major activities
within the sector. It is also suggested
that a market strategy which helps local
producers to sell to the tourist
industry would be important.

Provides data on single parent headed house-
holds. A little over 30 percent in each community
with one parent (usually female) about
half of these had grandparents. In hill
farming areas women who lived on family
land had some subsistence plot, and did
get some help from kin. In citrus area
women were widowed and family helped with
income. In plantation area there were few
income sources for single parents.

gardening in "rinidad. Suggests Jamaican
farmer has rational (though non-optimal)
response to perceived risk and non-avail-
ability of resources. The response is to
minimize cash outlays. In Trinidad farmers
have rapidly taken on new techniques.
Suggests that difference in response not
simply explained by relative efficacy of
recommended practices, but that aggressive
entrepreneurs of Trinidad learnt by
experience that innovation is profitable.
Experience of Jamaicans has not been as
positive though some has occurred e.g.
St. Elizabeth peanut farming. Community
cultural practices have an effect, e.g.
strongly progressive in Trinidad.
Alternative strategies to innovation
suggested: education on benefits,
imposed use, creation of new farmers
and/or farms and improved environment.

Indices of differential migration are
calculated for immigrants with total
population at point of destination as
base. These are used to describe dif-
ference in pattern and intensity of
migration by parish. Five variables
considered are age, education,
training, industry category and occu-
pation. Results with respect to
these variables are reported for
data based on the 1960 census of
population. Females are more nu-
merous than males in the migrant
stream, but males were more selective
(that is, migrants had a higher
proportion of specific traits
than the base population.)
Urban in migration was much greater
than rural, but rural was more selec-
tive. ?uthor suggests that these
results reflect "push stimulus for

looks at mortality statistics of 6
months to 4 years (mortality statistics
in Jamaica statistically reliable) in
St. James and St. Elizabeth in relation
to settlement type. Types related to
morphology of service function show
little correlation to PCM (protein calory
malnutrition). Suggests that PCM relates
to socio-economic characteristics of house-
hold rather than market-place (remoteness,
under-education, social structure, migra-
tion and employment patterns). Mapping of
PCM deaths shows correlation with spe-
cific population agglomerations. Social
structure with highest PCM is suggested
to be that with absent mother (with no
supporting male). Hypothesis that
areas close to employment sites will
have high migration rates, absentee
mothers and high PCM, and that areas
with low employment opportunities will
have high migration, absentee mothers
and probability of high PCM incidence.
May be a useful indicator of lowest
income group.

The development of mineral resources and
the bauxite alumina industry in particular
may involve competition with other
industries like agriculture for land,
labour and capital but, at the same time,
it can provide market opportunities for
agricultural products. The only real
area of competition is wage rates, since
the mineral industry pays a significantly
higher rate than does agriculture. A
bauxite laborer ranks higher in the
social strata than an agricultural
laborer and potential agricultural
workers who fail to gain employment in
the bauxite industry often go unemployed
rather than opt for agriculture.

The paper analyzes the structure of
Jamaican agriculture, examines the various
sub-sectors, including land use, land
tenure and land distribution, and assesses
where possible the problems and needs of
the sector. Jamaican agriculture is
divided between two sub-sectors, planta-
tion or export agriculture and the small
farm sector.

Land settlement efforts are discussed in
some detail. Authors recommend that
emphasis should be placed on measures
for achieving a more equitable pattern
of land distribution and that there
should be a more rational and intensive
pattern of land use.

An excellent article with well-developed
argument (with evidence) analyzing the concept
of labor unemployability. Unemployability
is defined as either absolute (incapable of
performing useful work) or price unemploy-
ability in which productivity is lower than

going wage rate. Suggests that this second
type is significant due to lack of training,
social habits which give a high rate of
absenteeism and effects of the time (5
years) to get job. Author carried out
survey of 73 unemployed males in Kingston
to estimate supply of effort. Forty-
nine percent had no objection to farm
employment (at assumed going wage rate).
Over 50 percent of those with objections found
pay too low, especially as work is irregular.
Author estimated MVP of labor from modified
version of 1954 Edwards data at $37 per year.
The reservation price for unemployed urban
males was $3 per week. Alternative formulation
is set up of labor surplus model with
elastic demand for modern sector and
elastic demand for sugar industry.
Author contends that market supply curve
has elastic section which is a social
consensus on reservation price (see
Maunder 1960). Suggests low productivity
as most important problem, rather than
overhigh supply prices.

A useful summary of previous work by
author and others on social and economic
characteristics of srall-scale farming
in Jamaica: poor quality land and
fragmentation, low farm income, low level
of education and dislike for agriculture,
farming considered a way of life, high

degree of tenancy, frustration and
adjustment, individualism and low levels
of co-operation. resistancee to change
is explained by need for funds for
consumption before production, planning
from above, and extension agents poorly
trained in economics and sociology.

A valuable article even though not on
Jamaica. It is shown that production
function analysis is appropriate in
answering questions concerned with the
optimal level of input combination and
can help planning agencies to make the
best decision in allocating scarce
resources. Constant returns, to scale,
appear +o exist among smallholders over
the range of inputs studied. If current

inputs are each increased by 1 percent while the
others are held constant, land will
contribute relatively little while
labour and capital will add more to
total output than their cost. At the
micro-regional level, production can be
increased by moving more land and labour
into the cash-tenants region, and more
labour and capital into the share-tenants
region. A progressive land-reform programme
that makes more fertile land available can
increase overall production among small-
holders, as well as increasing the
productivity of land. Secondary
industries based on animal produce could
be developed if the present stock of
animals could be increased. The small-
scale agricultural production system
is operating much more efficiently
thar is generally realized.

Women's contribution to subsistence
farming is considered. In Jamaica
farming is one of the few occupations,
but there is also a shortage of young
men in most villages. Reliance on the
production support of women is part of the
life cycle of the co-residential family,
i.e. the young woman. A male member
usually only returns to share economic
responsibility when the couple reach
middle age. .This structural adjustment
to the demographic imbalance is made

possible by the ecology and nature of
subsistence farming.

Unemployment in a Wage-Gap Economy;

A model is presented of a 'wage-gap'
economy (i.e. an economy in which
the wage in one sector is set higher
than equilibrium for +hat level of
skill) which is used to analyse
employment and unemployment in
Jamaica. The model is somewhat
similar to that of Todaro. It
provides a very significant contribu-
tion to the study of labor demand and
supply. Concludes that Jamaica is
able to have higher measured unemploy-
ment rate than poorer countries (e.g.
Haiti) because there is both the
incentive and means to support
unemployment. Any reduction in the
number of unemployed, or increase in
hiring of the high wage sector raises
the probability of obtaining a high
wage job and induces supply withdrawal
from the low-wage sector. Labor
shortages in agriculture exist because
expected lifetime earnings from high

wage job are higher and because occa-
sional non-agricultural casual work
gives workers means of support while
they look for work in high wage sector.

A farm in Jamaica is all land
occupied by one operator for
agricultural purposes within one
parish, irrespective of the terms
of occupation and of the number
of parcels of which it is composed.
A farmer is the person financially
responsible for the operation of
the farm, who makes profits directly
resulting from the farming operation.

size (most 1/3 to 2 acres), income before
land lease (25 percent could not answer this
question), education level, age, and
obtains feedback on scheme: 35 percent com-
plained of shortage of cash to meet land
preparation expenditures not financed
by land lease and to hire labor; others
mentioned the lack of water; or inadequate
land. Survey looked at attitudes on
benefits of program, not objective
measures because half hadn't any cash
income, i.e. only 194 gave gross sales.
Benefits were seen through dignity etc.
(28 percent), cash income (over 20 percent),
increased food (16 percent). Hostility to coop-
erative farming was noted. Not very detailed
economic information, though social
information reasonably useful.

Data were generated by interviews
with scientists and administrators
and questionnaires to extension
agents. Data relate to organization,
recruitment, support, in-service
development, internal management
procedures including rewards, project
teamwork, monitoring of performance,
etc. No discernible policy was found
on recruitment and training to ensure
that anticipated needs were met. Almost
all graduate training was received out-
side the region and evidence suggests
orientation was inadequate. Procedures
were not evident for guidance and
direction of research and rewards (if
present) did not relate to research
performance. Fxtension agents knew

Describes attitudes to secondary
education in a rural community. Since
competitive access to education became
available it is considered the major
means to upward mobility. Results of
sample survey of 40 household heads
show education is regarded as key means
to success. "here are inter-personal
conflicts between those whose children
attain secondary school and those who
do not. Does not refer to role of
education to agriculture. Includes
a use breakdown of community into 5
groups wage laborers, small inde-
pendent farmers (3 to 10 acres), big
farmers, white collar workers, and
large estate owners (10-50 acres).
Characteristics provided for each

of the FAO/DANIDA Expert Consultations
on Extension "raining in the Caribbean
and Latin america. Pome, 1973, v+"5pp.

Consultations were to take a new and critical
look at extension training needs from the
farm-level point of view and to examine
the links between the various kinds of
extension people and the farmers, and
among the farmers themselves. Considera-
tion was also given to seeking means of
involving peasants more directly in the
extension endeavour through representative
peasant organizations. The emphasis
throughout was on the development of
extension training that is relevant to
farm needs.

the role of the Caribbean Development
Bank in rural development credit.
Attention is given to the volume of

sub-sectors which are affected most.
Finally, after identifying the
constraints to the further expansion
of small farmer credit, recommendations
are made for using agricultural credit
in a package aimed at improving rural
community life.

Land settlement projects have been
criticized with respect to size of
settlement properties, types of
persons selected, location of homes
with respect to land, and types of
land use encouraged.

Study analyses data from a 20 percent sample
of 6 land settlements in south-central
Jamaica. Useful data on land, gross
income, physical characteristics of
settlements, etc. are tabularly sum-
marized. Major part of article
reports a regression analysis of gross

income in each project as a function
of size of farm, land use diversity,
distance of home from farm, age,
number of dependents, non-farm income,
and acreage of land outside the
settlement. This regression was used
to analyse criticisms of the system.
:2s were not very high and standard
errors are not reported. Factors
most consistently related to output
(gross income) were acreage of farm
and distance to holding. Some
variables showed unusual signs.
Given the empirical nature of the
function, this does not seem surprising.

Jamaican property tax since 1962 has

than improved value. Article
describes process and notes all land
holdings worth under 100 were not
valued. Three taxes are levied:
property, parish and service rates.
All parcels (not total holdings) of
less than 1,000 unimproved value were
exempt, the rate was then progressive.

Defines land settlement as system
whereby Government subdivides land
which it either owns or subsequently
purchases for settlement of farmers
on a freehold or leasehold basis.
Discusses settlements 1949-63, of
freehold and leasehold kind. Needed
rehabilitation and land lease of 5
years was not liked. Two experiments
in co-op farming--1ucky Hill and Grove
are described and problems discussed.
In period 1963-72 few farms were
settled, though had a dairy scheme
with successes and shortcomings. A
year training was required of all
participants and infrastructure and
size were based on a target incomes.
Discusses private tenant schemes (e.g.
Alcan) with 1969-70 data. Some
analysis, though coverage patchy.
