    The objectives of SSTP farmers’ survey is on one hand to assess the adoption of selected seed technologies while on the other hand the project tends to assess the rate of scaling taking place to the three selected crops.

    Outcomes: Improved capacity of public and private sector groups to deliver quality seeds and other technologies to smallholder farmers; increased use of quality seeds and other technologies by smallholder farmers; and improved regional and country level policy and regulatory mechanisms for the production and delivery of quality seeds and technologies to smallholder farmers.
