Are Farmer Based Organizations Effective Channels For Impacting Input Use And Income? Evidence From Smallholder Dairy East Africa

This survey used data from the East Africa Dairy Development project which utilizes farmer based organizations to evaluate whether producer organizations have been efficiently used by the project to impact on inputs use and income. Propensity score matching results show that project participants generated higher dairy revenues than non-participants. They also spent more on hired labour and animal breeding and had a higher probability of having improved breeds. The findings have important implications for development agents and policy makers seeking productivity improvement and increased market participation of poor smallholder dairy farmers as establishment and growth of producer organizations.
