The effect of the non-farm economy on agriculture has been evaluated at various levels in the literature. However, examining the link between the non-farm sector and agricultural market engagements has remained grey. The literature tends to implicitly assume that the contribution of the non-farm sector to increased output and farm investments would naturally trickle down to market engagements. Thus, little empirical investigation has been conducted to examine the effect of non-farm engagements on market participation. This study aims to employ endogenous switching probit and generalized structural equation model to provide empirical evidence on the effect of non-farm engagements on market participation of smallholder farmers in Ghana. We propose to use the Ghana Living Standards Survey Round 6 (GLSS6) to achieve the goal of the study. We expect to uncover factors linking these two concepts and on the basis, provide the needed evidence to inform policy in Ghana.
