Information used for this assessment was gathered from key informants among people involved in the ACIAR, AusAID CARD, and ACIAR-World Vision projects and from focus-group discussions among farmers' representing the treatment and control areas in five provinces of Vietnam. Despite the accomplishments of these projects, issues relating to current adoption and sustainability of adoption, and changes in farmers' net income as a result of adopting technology need to be assessed. The primary purpose of this impact assessment is to examine these issues.
