Technology development and adoption rates. Systems approach for agricultural research and extension



Technology development and adoption rates. Systems approach for agricultural research and extension



Food Policy 8(2): 141-153



Adoption of new technology in peasant agriculture is lower than expected because of defects in the formal systems for research and extension. Experimental methods focus on sole cropping and yield maximisation rather than on mixed cropping and stability of output. Technology prescribed is rarely verified across dominant variations in the biological and socioeconomic circumstances of farmers.
