  1. Estimation is based on late random-effects Instrumental Variable models. Standard errors are in parentheses. ***, **, and * signify statistical significance at the 1%, 5%, and 10% level, respectively
  2. All training dummy is instrumented by all lottery result. Dummy of hometown is instrumented by invitation for training in hometown. Dummy of intra-island is instrumented by invitation for intra-island training. Dummy of inter-island is instrumented by invitation for inter-island training1May or may not be farmers
