000037091 520__ $$aPotato farmers in Ecuador rely on chemical inputs to manage pests and optimize yields.  Integrated pest management techniques lower production costs, reduce pesticide exposure, and improve long-term agricultural sustainability.  Public extension does not, however, exist in Ecuador and cost-effective means of communicating complex messages to producers are needed.  We analyze cost-effectiveness of alternative dissemination methods, including farmer field schools (FFS), field days, pamphlets, and word-of-mouth transmission.  Field days and pamphlets have strong impacts on adoption, especially considering their low costs.  FFS are effective, but expensive.  Evidence also indicates significant diffusion from FFS to non-FFS farmers, indicating high complementarity across methods.
