Abstract

5.5.2.2 Mali Sorghum production increased by 126 thousand tons (20.2%) as land was shifted from peanut production to sorghum in Mali. Millet production also increased by 285 thousand tons (29.4%). New varieties increased peanut production by 12 thousand tons (7.2%). A sorghum price decline of 1.75 % resulted in an increased consumer surplus of 46.82 billion fcfa. The sorghum price decline resulted in a loss of producer surplus of 62.69 billion fcfa, but home consumption benefits increased by 43.49 billion fcfa. The total national welfare change was 27.6 billion fcfa (Table 5.5.2.2).
