dc.description.abstract Most rural people in developing countries are highl y dependent on resource-based subsistence economies using products obtained from plants and a nimals. The purposes of this study are: 1. To asses the efficiency and sustainability in the u se of domestic resources and tradable inputs of crops production of the farmers in the dominating f arming systems. 2. To analyze the comparative advantage and protection of the major a gricultural crops. The study was conducted in the irrigated, traditional and mechanized rainfe d farming systems. The study applied the liner programming associated with Policy Analysis Matrix to determine competitiveness and policy effects of crops production in the farming systems in Sudan. The results explain that the production costs of do mestic food commodities of the farmers are considerably high. Beside the prices of fertilizers are considerably high. The misuse of the resources and lack of appropriate technologies were among the important factors that led to the low returns from farms. Food crops are disappeared from the optimal plan of the models set for the farmers. On applying the sensitivity analysis to indicate th e stability of results, it was illustrated that on increasing the gross margins the optimal plan and/o r resource use remained constant, however, the returns of tenant’s households increased. Moreo ver when the total land holdings increased in the three farming systems, the optimal returns of t he farmers increased in the case of the traditional and the mechanized farms and remained u nchanged in the irrigated farms. The PAM results show that the farmers grow the food crop only to maintain self-sufficiency level as it will be cheaper in domestic market than to invest on import of food crop. And it has comparative advantage for the three representative farms, both under the current policies and in the absence of government intervention en_US
