Descriptif
The general objective of this study is to analyze the potential for increased household income through increased productivity in the groundnut farming system. The study analyzes the technology and management gaps between groundnut farmers who participated in on-farm trials conducted by KARI or otherwise had access to improved seeds and farmers who received limited or no exposure to research or extension. The former group of farmers is called “research farmers” (RF), while the latter is referred to as “non-research farmers” (NRF). The specific objectives of this study are to analyze the average yield differences between farms in terms of : (1) the use of technology, specifically improved versus traditional seed varieties ; (2) differences in farm management ability between research and non-research farmers ; and (3) differences in farm management ability between male and female farmers.
