Use of the CABI BioProtection Portal increases awareness of safer plant protection products among farmers and agricultural advisers in Kenya
Published: April, 2022
This working paper reports on a study that was conducted to assess two sets of information – awareness and use of biopesticide/biocontrol products, and awareness and use of CABI’s web-based BioProtection Portal (launched in Kenya in February 2020) – among a range of respondents in Kenya: fresh produce farmers, agro-dealers, and farmers’ advisers. A baseline assessment was conducted in September 2020, and the endline assessment was conducted in December 2020. Data for the study was collected through a household survey (for farmers) and key informant interviews (for agro-dealers and advisers).
