This project focused on evaluating the adoption of new sorghum technologies on the hillsides of Honduras and in the vertisols of Sudan. On the basis of these surveys, mathematical models of these farms have been constructed to analyze potential adoption and associated agricultural policies. These two areas have often been cited by other INTSORMIL scientists as priority areas for evaluating
tile impact of new cultivars and other new technologies.
