Colonist farm income, off-farm work, cattle, and differentiation in Ecuador's Northern Amazon


, : Colonist farm income, off-farm work, cattle, and differentiation in Ecuador's Northern Amazon. Human Organization 60(1): 67-79

Examination of income sources and other characteristics among agricultural colonists in the northern Amazon rainforest of Ecuador (the Oriente) reveals economic differentiation of the frontier associated with farming, off-farm work, and cattle raising. Regression models use data from a unique, representative farm-level survey in 1990. Results show that farm income is higher on large, fertile, extensively cultivated plots near roads.
