This project focused on evaluating the potential impact and sustainability of new technologies in various priority regions for INTSORMIL.
1. Estimate the potential impact and sustainability of new technologies in various priority regions for INTSORMIL. 2. Evaluate the farm-level impact of various agricultural and economic policies in facilitating technology introduction. 3. Undertake farm-level surveys in priority regions for new technology introduction to estimate diffusior. and to con-struct more realistic farm-level models, 4. Identify farm-level constraints to new technology intro-duction, including those from technical, policy, and farm-ers' objectives, 5. Evaluate the impact of performance of input and product markets in affecting technology introduction,
