EXPLORE THE DATA ECOSYSTEM
The mission of the Agricultural Technology Adoption Initiative (ATAI) is to develop and rigorously test programs that improve the adoption and profitable use of agricultural technology by small-scale farmers in South Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa.
The long-term objective of ATAI is to ensure that the poor derive greater benefit from existing and new agricultural technologies.
ATAI disseminates research findings from randomized evaluations sourced through semi-annual research competitions. We produce and disseminate this rigorous evidence to inform the following: (a) How effective are agricultural interventions targeting low-income smallholder farmers in developing countries? (b) ADOPTION: When agricultural technologies and approaches are shown to work, do farmers actually adopt and engage with them? and (c) IMPACT: When farmers do adopt technologies and/or deepen their engagement with markets, under what conditions is this sustained? Does technology adoption ultimately improve their productivity, increase their income and/or their wellbeing?
