This collaborative project uses diagnostic research to investigate farmer attitudes and intentions to adopt GM matooke banana and assess whether this technology benefits farmer yields and livelihoods. We counter the common assumption that a single technology can succeed in different settings across the continent of Africa. Instead, the potential impact of GM technologies must be assessed within ecological, political and social contexts that farmers face on the ground.
