Abstract Differences in net income per marmite of peanuts for two types of Haitian peanut farmers were investigated in this study. The two types are located nearby in northeastern Haiti. One type of farmer belongs to a marketing cooperative that is 10 years old (CAPESEDO) and primarily markets peanuts. CAPESEDO buys peanuts from its members, stores them about eight months, and then sells them when prices are higher. The other type of farmer markets his peanuts individually.
