Adoption Impact Wheat technologies Amhara Food security Farm households
Project description

Most farm households in the Amhara region mainly rely on agriculture for their livelihoods and are often suffer from low production and shortage of food. Improved wheat technologies offer a solution to these problems but often face low levels of adoption. This study thus examines how these technologies can be utilized by farmers to maximize their impact on household livelihoods.
