Presentation: Heterogeneous Constraints and Incentives and the Uptake of Agricultural Innovations by Smallholder Farmers

Observations of smallholder farmer inefficiency often reflect failure to control for nature.

This presentation is based on the AMA Innovation Lab projects for the Mind the Gap Workshop.
