  1. 1. Has NERICA made any impact in Ghana? 1
  2. 2. Impact of NERICA Adoption on Incomes of Rice Producing Households in Northern Ghana A.N. Wiredu, B.O. Asante, E. Martey, A. Diagne and W. Dogbe 2
  3. 3. Background Objectives Methodology |Results & Discussion| Conclusion References Technology transfer What was the NERICA project about? Production support Capacity building
  4. 4. Background Objectives Methodology |Results & Discussion| Conclusion References Are there any evidence of impact? Studies s from neighboring countries Ghana project report >30,000 farmers Missing causality in Ghana report Activities increased NERICA adoption >10 MT of seeds NERICA adoption increase yields >12ha of land NERICA adoption increased incomes Sources: (MoFA, 2011; Ojehomon et al, 2012; Dontsop et al, 2012; Dibba et al, 2012) 4 4
  5. 5. Background Objectives Methodology |Results & Discussion| Conclusion References What did this study do? • Evaluated the impact of NERICA adoption on the incomes of rice producers – It identified key sources of income – Estimated the impact of NERICA adoption on these incomes 5
  6. 6. Background Objectives Methodology |Results & Discussion| Conclusion References How was impacted outcomes estimated? • Treatment effect method • Local Average Treatment Effect (LATE) impact parameter – Impact on subpopulation of compliers Sources: (Dontsop et al, 2012; Dibba et al, 2012) 6
  7. 7. Background Objectives Methodology |Results & Discussion| Conclusion References There was evidence of non-compliance Sample=150 Received Seeds=46% Planted=80% No Seeds=54% Not planted=20% Sources: (Dontsop et al, 2012; Dibba et al, 2012)
  8. 8. Background Objectives Methodology |Results & Discussion| Conclusion References Agriculture and rice provided most incomes Table 1: Household income (USD) by adoption Daily Total per capita Non adopters 0.33 879.47 Adopters 0.73 1138.83 Overall 0.48 974.57 Figure 1: Sources of household income by adoption 8
  9. 9. Background Objectives Methodology |Results & Discussion| Conclusion References NERICA adoption increased incomes Table 2: Estimated LATE impact parameters Income Rice Agric.
