Abstract

The main objective of this paper is to assess the efficiency of Banana production in Blue Nile State in Sudan for the 2015. The study employed exclusively primary data and applied policy analysis matrix approach as an analytical model. The results highlighted the comparative advantage of Banana in Rosaries and Damazin localities and indicated that, although Banana is profitable and competitive in relative and absolute terms, it is not efficiently produced in the two localities. Internationally the study has shown the international value Added is competitive. The results delineated that government is not protecting Banana farmers. The study concluded that the PAM's measures indicators for Banana in Blue Nile State is much worse than the average measures for Sudan and recommended that the government should revise the adopted existing pricing policies and encourage the adoption of new technological techniques for Banana production in Blue Nile state in Sudan.
