The purpose of this study was to identify and analyse the factors influencing the uptake and adoption of crop protection research outputs particularly by poor farmers in yam-based cropping systems in Forest Agriculture areas. The principal objective was to develop recommendations that could guide current and future projects to improve the uptake, and ultimately the impact, of their outputs. The recommendations were expected to be location specific but also to provide lessons more generally for the programme and other related organisations in both Ghana and other yam growing areas in West Africa.
