Based on the need to understand how and when DTM is used by farmers, the number of users over time, the provision of information for policy reform, as well as the need to measure impact, a formal household survey of resource-poor farmers was conducted during the 2005–2006 production periods. The survey was targeted at major maize producing areas that were frequently at drought risk. The general objective of the household survey was to collect baseline data on farm households and use them to construct indicators for measuring changes in the adoption of improved maize varieties and the impact on adopting households in selected locations.

  • Identify factors that influence the adoption of improved maize varieties;
  • Characterize maize production systems and gender mainstreaming; and
