The Effectiveness of Research Processes on Adoption and Diffusion of Agricultural Technologies in Kenya: A Case of Climbing Beans Technology at Kari

Abstract:

Findings from the study show that KARI scientists used research processes that were participatory and educative. These included conducting farmer trainings at KARI centre and at on-farm demonstration sites, holding of field days and exchange visits, availability of documented evidence on the technology benefits, ensuring farmers were free to gain entry to the KARI on-station demonstration trails, issuance of clean planting materials, frequent follow ups to farmer's fields, and that KARI and Ministry of Agriculture officers demonstrated good knowledge of the technology. The promotional campaigns led to building confidence that led to voluntary adoption of Climbing Beans in the current farming system.
