Abstract

This study examines the impact of Integrated Pest Management-Farmer Field School (IPM-FFS) programs on groundnut productivity in Ghana. The program is conducted in the groundnut growing regions of Ghana with the goal to improve groundnut agriculture through the dissemination of information and technology to the producers. We use household data collected in 2011 from multiple villages with and without FFS sites. Treatment effects models are used to control for endogenous selection into FFS participation. The results suggest that farmers who participated in the IPM-FFS program have higher groundnut yields.
