This study from Uganda finds that program phaseout does not diminish demand for improved seeds, as farmers shift purchases from NGO-sponsored village supply networks to market sources, indicating persistent learning effects.
This study evaluated a large-scale agricultural extension program's impacts on women's technology adoption and food security in Uganda. The program led to better basic cultivation methods and improved food security. Farmers also modified how they coped with shocks.
This study provides experimental tests of the effects of program phase-out in the context of a large-scale agricultural input subsidy and extension program operated by the NGO BRAC to increase the use of improved seed varieties and basic farming practices among women smallholders in Uganda.
