''The Evolution of Agricultural Production and Yields in Post-Reform Cuba''
( 2019, Vol. 39 No.2 )
The agricultural reforms introduced in Cuba since 2007 have directly impacted agricultural output and yields. This paper documents the evolution of agricultural output and yields in Cuba since the introduction of agricultural reforms in 2007. Agricultural output and yields experienced notable declines during the first years after the reforms for the majority of the non-sugar crops included in our study, but have recovered since. However, after more than a decade of reforms, agricultural output and yields remain below pre-reform levels, and Cuba depends on imported food and agricultural products to satisfy domestic demand.
Keywords: Agrarian Reforms, Agricultural Productivity Cuban Agriculture, Transition Economies.
