Field & Demo Trial: • Agronomic indicators- qualitative & quantitative (e.g. maturity, yield, grain type, pest and disease resistance, drought tolerance, resilience to lodging ) • Utility indicators - famer preference by gender (e.g. coockability, taste, marketability, compatibility in farming system )
  6. 6. Indicators –ctd. 2. Initial Uptake phase indicators • Number of beneficiaries reached /exposed to the technology • Number of farmers linked to traders and /or sales volume /value • Technical report
  7. 7. Indicators ---ctd. 3. Indicators on capacity building • Number of trainees by gender by topic • Feedback from trainees – content & relevance of the training • Technical & Financial report
  8. 8. Integration of information from external sources Meteorological data – e.g. amount and distribution of rainfall / annum:- useful in interpretation of trial data # A-R installed rainfall gauges in action sites (mostly in pr. Schools) •
  9. 9. Information integration ---ctd. • Markets & access to market information – which product for which market • Bylaws- existing/need for new ones • Policies –e.g. subsidy, quality declared seed • Social-cultural norms --- positive/negative
