Smallholder ADOPT is designed to provide an understanding of the technology adoption process, as part of the wider processes of agricultural innovation.

This publication documents the development of Smallholder ADOPT, which started with a review of literature that gathered significant data on the factors influencing adoption in developing country settings.The development process was then progressed through a survey with users of the pilot version of Smallholder ADOPT, followed by workshops held in Ethiopia, Laos, India and Papua New Guinea.
