Master’s thesis analyzing the demand for potato seed attributes by farmers in Bolivia highlands. The Goal of the study was to determine how exposure to risk factors impacts potato planting decisions through demand for potato variety characteristics. The data for the study came from 145 farm household surveys in Cochabamba in 2007. Several hypotheses were confirmed such as the importance of yield, though many results were different than expected.
