Predict

Identify a likely peak extent of adoption within a specific target population of farmers and the likely time for reaching that peak. This focuses on a particular innovation within a particular population and does not aim to predict adoption behaviour of individuals.

Inform

ADOPT helps you consider the influence of a structured set of factors affecting adoption. This information is helpful in informing research, development and extension strategies.

Engage

ADOPT engages research, development and extension managers and practitioners by involving them in the process and making adoptability knowledge and considerations readily available and understandable.

ADOPT incorporates sets of factors that studies have shown to commonly influence the rate and peak level adoption within a population.

We'll help you work out how quickly your innovation will spread and what percentage adoption you can expect, along with ideas to help you improve it. Our outputs make great supporting documents for grant applications.
