        The majority of farmers in Ethiopia are smallholder farmers. However, smallholder farmers Participation in markets remain low due to range of resource constraints such as capital, inputs and technology and their exposure to risk. Therefore, this paper was aimed to review different literature determinants of smaller holder farmers’ market participation and outlet choice decision in Ethiopia.   We currently employ seasonal workers, too (which is great for coffee because harvesting is done in the maize farming off-season) and the sustainable development department has over employees.

      The main economic products of Malawi are tobacco, tea, cotton, groundnuts, sugar and have been among the main cash crops for the last century, but tobacco has become increasingly predominant in the last quarter-century, with a production in of , tonnes.

Therefore, improving the profitability of the coffee sector has a major relevance for all stakeholders involved. It will contribute substantially to poverty reduction among farmers (Deininger & Profitability of coffee and maize among smallholders book, ), and generate a considerable spillover effect into the overall economic performance of the country.

Seasonal hunger is common among coffee smallholders in Nicaragua. Domestic maize prices peak during the hungry months of June, July and August.

The majority of the poor and food insecure in Africa live in rural areas, and most of them depend on agriculture for their livelihoods. More than 30 percent of the people in sub-Saharan Africa are chronically hungry and are small farmers.

Experts tell us that the population in Africa is expected to double byand African nations will have to double their food production just to keep pace. Meta-regressions of around cases published over the period – suggest that the direction of the relationship between land area and agricultural performance strongly depends on the performance indicator selected.

Net value and efficiency indicators show that larger farms tend to be more performant than smallholders, while the simpler but ubiquitous gross output indicators support. A well-trained Coffee Barista can give a cafe strong market share and credibility in the coffee scene.
