4). The dependent variable is the log of net revenue per hectare. The independent variables are mean monthly temperature, rainfall, household size, age, gender and educational attainment of the household head and log of farm size. Sample selection bias correction terms estimated at the first stage from the results of multinomial regressions are included as additional explanatory variables for each crop regression other than the crop for which the regression is run. This specification provides the best fit of the model.

Taking into account crop selection bias, warming increases revenues of cassava and sorghum whiles additional rainfall increases sorghum revenue and decreases revenues of cassava and maize. As a long-term phenomenon, climate change is projected to reduce expected revenue from cassava and maize, but the losses in revenue can be minimized through adaptation by switching among crops. Climate change is expected to positive impact on revenues of sorghum and yam, which is expected to be maximized through crop switching (climate change adaptation).

Educated farmers tend to receive higher profits from rice cultivation while less educated farmers earn higher revenue from cultivation of cassava. Apart from the factors explained earlier, farm size and crop selection terms also have statistically significant effect on some crops. Farm size has significant negative effect on earnings of all crops. Mendelsohn and Dinar (2009) attribute this to the omission in cost calculation of household labor which overstates net earnings of smaller farms. It is also explained by the higher management intensity on smaller farms as compared to larger ones.
