Constraints to adoption of technology include:

  1. ineffective transfer of soil management technologies from research centers to decision makers at the farm and policy levels;

  2. availability and accessibility of information to support household decision making and adoption of sustainable production practices,
and some technology adoption activities will also address:
  1. market constraints to farm profitability, adoption of inputs, and improved soil management practices, and

  2. availability and accessibility of information to support public policies that encourage adoption of sustainable production practices
