DescriptionThe Haiti Agroforestry Research Project was a program to encourage Haitian farmers to plant fast growing trees as a cash crop. This project was part of an overall plan by USAID to curb the devastating erosion which was washing the top soil into the sea.
The Pan American Development Foundation (Pwo Pyebwa) has requested a study to determine the current cost of producing seedlings in a local nursery. The purpose of this study is to determine the production costs of a typical nursery capable of seeding 50,000 cells per season. This study used several nursery infrastructure options in determining the different per-seedling costs of each method. The most expensive per seedling cost was $0.1266 and the least expensive was $0.1244. These costs include direct and indirect costs except for the cost of capital. The study shows that the different costs of infrastructure have little effect on the price of a seedling. Labor was the most expensive direct cost at 12% of total direct and indirect costs.
