Additional Information



This study presents the success story of the adoption and diffusion of improved chickpea short duration varieties in Southern India. The experience in the state of Andhra Pradesh particularly exemplifies evidences that adoption of technologies significantly enhanced agricultural productivity and total welfare gains in both traditional and non-traditional chickpea growing regions. As part of a global initiative to assess the impacts of legumes research in the CGIAR, this study supported by SPIA contributes to generating more reliable information on key aspects of adoption and diffusion as well as gaining better insights and deeper understanding of the impacts of varietal change. This study conducted a comprehensive adoption survey to generate reliable data on adoption and better understand the diffusion process as well as quantify the direct impacts on productivity, unit cost reduction and welfare gains from chickpea research. The focus of this study is to measure the economic impact of improved short duration chickpea varieties, at the same time achieve a deeper understanding of the underlying adoption and diffusion process.
