The general objective of the study was to estimate the economic efficiency of the mixed crop-livestock farmers in two districts of north eastern Ethiopia. Cross-sectional data were used to analyze the economic efficiency of mixed crop and livestock production system and identify its determinants factors.   Moreover, water use rights often depend on having access to land, making land tenure systems a key determinant of access to water. Statutory water laws with nation-wide permit systems were introduced in several African countries in the s. Does Large Farm Establishment Create Benefits for Neighboring Smallholders?

Evolution and technical efficiency of land tenure systems in Ethiopia. [M M Ahmed; International Livestock Research Institute.;] -- The degree to which prevailing land tenure arrangements in sub-Saharan Africa constrain efficiency and agricultural productivity are still not determined. Evolution and land market in Ethiopia Prior toland tenure in Ethiopia was based on a feudal system in which land was owned by the emperor, who granted tenure rights subject to feudal obligations.

Land tenure forms known as rist and gult were then practiced (Rahmato, ). Communal ownership of land was generally.

The degree to which prevailing land tenure arrangements constrain agricultural productivity, and the sources of inefficiency associated with land tenure systems in sub-Saharan Africa are unresolved.

The Nigerian land policy aims to unify the land tenure system and make land readily available at an affordable rate [,]. However, a survey conducted by the second author in showed that these objectives have not been met. Speculation in land is on the increase and fragmentation in the land tenure system is observed.

Structural defects in the land tenure system and bad government Until the Land Reform Decree of which provided for the nationalisation of rural lands, the feudal system of land tenure had imposed a formidable social, political and economic burden on the Ethiopian farmer (Tecle, ).

PRE LAND LEGACY. Ethiopia’s land tenure system reflects long-standing and competing historical themes, including feudal traditions and the effects of military rule to rectify feudal injustices.

The prevailing constant, regardless of the form of governance, has been significant control by the state over the allocation and use of land.
