Studies to analyse promotion and uptake pathways for crop post harvest (CPH) research were conducted in Kabale and Kiboga districts. The key players in CPH technology generation, dissemination and utilization were identified at national, district and village levels. Uptake of CPH technologies required innovations like technology demonstrations, radio broadcasting, farmer participatory research methods, local institutions including churches, local drama and concerted actions by residents NGOs, CBOs and extension agents. Market demands and dynamics played major roles in determining type, size and number and when the PH technologies are acquired.
