This presentation describes the Technology Networks Cross Cutting Research Activity (CCRA-8) and the baseline survey module to be incorporated by the LTRA teams. The Technology Networks CCRA has three key objectives: 1) Reveal local network structures 2) Identify different technological frames for agricultural production and 3)Determine key actors and knowledge pathways to facilitate innovation. Data will be collected through the integration of an additional module into SANREM baseline surveys conducted by the LTRA teams which incorporates a set of Likert scale questionnaire items and a network module to measure relations between actors according to frequency, trust, and resources exchanged. The module also collects data on soil perceptions and practices and participation by men and women in agricultural activities.
