No case of CAPS adoption has occurred without the mobilization of multiple partners. The goal of this project is to determine factors facilitating innovation and scaling out of CAPS for smallholders. Towards this purpose, structure and functioning of agricultural networks including farmers and their contacts in the agricultural sector in the LTRAs are examined.
1. Identify the knowledge and attitudes (technological frames) concerning agricultural production practices held by actors in the network 2. Describe the structure of information and physical resource flows between these actors 3. Determine critical network pathways and opinion leaders facilitating technological change among farmers and their service sector partners
