Adoption and Impact of SG 2000 - Uganda Crop Productivity Enhancing Technologies in Tororo, Buikwe and Kamwenge Districts of Uganda

December.1.2017

The objective of this study was to analyze the impact of improved seed varieties, fertilizer use and line planting technologies on farming outcomes.
This study shows that Technology Option Plots (TOPs) and Women Assisted Demonstrations (WADs) in addition to farmer trainings were more effective in attracting communities to SG interventions. The results of the study also demonstrate the wide use of line planting practices amongst participants as well as improved seed and fertilizer technologies indicating the success of the SG 2000 extension model. SG 2000-Uganda interventions also introduced new crops such as beans in Tororo and rice in Kamwenge districts. This has occasioned the rise of income in addition to ancillary improvements such as the quality of education.

Impact of SG 2000 Technologies Adoption on Smallholder Agricultural Productivity in Nigeria

January.31.2017

This paper assesses the impact of Sasakawa Global (SG) 2000 technologies adoption on agricultural productivity in smallholder agriculture Nigeria. 280 farmers are selected from Adamawa, Kano, Jigawa and Gombe States, where Sasakawa Africa Association (SAA) operates. The paper finds encouraging level of adoption of SG 2000 technology by smallholder farmers through the use of improved seed variety, improved agronomy practices, better land and soil management practices. However, the success is limited by inaccessibility of the hybrid seed to the grass-root, villages and communities; low of awareness on sourcing and usage of the improved seed; higher prices of the improved seeds; and some farmers’ resistance to change.
