Abstract: This work aimed at quantifying monetarily the incentive that would urge peanut producers in the Northern department of Haiti to implement a set of post-harvest practices to reduce the risk of aflatoxin contamination. Therefore, using an individual inverted BDM mechanism, the willingness to accept of producers has been determined. In addition, the effect of the use of a drying tarpaulin on the aflatoxin content of the peanuts produced was measured as well as the influence of access to a market conditioned by the willingness to accept of producers and the quality of the peanuts produced. The results revealed that market access had a significant effect on the premium demanded by producers, however, it did not have a significant impact on the quality of peanuts while this was the case for the access to a drying tarpaulin. At the same time, consumers' willingness to pay for peanut butter in the formal sector has also been assessed for a certified quality product. The determination of consumers' additional willingness to pay for quality certified peanut butter has shown that this premium would be enough to encourage producers to act. So, a market solution is plausible for aflatoxin control in this segment of the market.
