    • D. Thesis “Performance of the Fruit Crop Industry in Ghana: Empirical Results and Policy Implications” at SUB-Göttingen-eDiss and in GAUSS. This research focuses on the estimation of technical inefficiency and technology gaps effects in the Ghanaian fruit crop industry. The methodological framework is based on the stochastic production frontier analysis approach with extension to multiple outputs. Special attention is directed at the impact of policy changes on farm households in rural areas. The linkage between the areas of productivity growth and policy reform in an export market-oriented industry is at the core of the research agenda. http://ediss.uni-goettingen.de/handle/11858/00-1735-0000-0023-995C-0
