000093879 520__ $$aMalian farmers have been cultivating millet and sorghum for millennia, but they are
slow to adopt and develop modern varieties because it is difficult to observe the
difference in yields in their fields, given the challenging local growing conditions.
Farmer participatory approaches are therefore recommended. This paper applies an
instrumental variables method to survey data from Mali to evaluate the impacts of
Diversity Field Fora, a type of farmer field school which aims to boost millet and
sorghum yields by showing farmers how to manage diverse varieties. Impact
indicators are expected and recalled millet and sorghum yields, the total number of
unique attributes of millet and sorghum varieties stocked as seed, and the relative deprivation of the household farm with respect to these indicators. The findings
suggest the project has had results at one of two sites where it has been implemented
with the same local leadership and more intensively over a longer time frame.
