If the household has other sources of off-farm income available, this money could be used to supplement food purchases. The worst-case scenario is one where a household allocates a disproportionate share of available farmland to a nonedible cash crop with a long gestation period and is trapped when other income sources become less available and the terms of trade for the cash crop develop unfavorably. This volume contains examples of cash crops that would fall into the category of long gestation periods—sugarcane in Kenya (chapter 16) and the Philippines (chapter 13) and tree crops in Sierra Leone (chapter 21).

Lump-sum payments, typically, are associated with the purchase of consumer durables, whereas continual forms of income are more likely to be spent on food (von Braun and Kennedy 1986).
