Impacts of Women-Only Farmer Groups on the Adoption of Agricultural Practices  

IGNITE & Digital Green: Exploring Intra-Household Decision-Making and Best Practice Adoption Outcomes of Women-Targeted Digital Extension. Women in Ethiopia face various barriers to adopting agricultural best practices. Using household surveys with 1,740 wheat farmers from 895 households in Ethiopia’s Amhara region, this study investigates if using women-only farmer groups mitigate those barriers to access for women and lead to increased knowledge and adoption of best practices for wheat farmers, or changes in decision-making power for women. The research was conducted by the Impacting Gender & Nutrition through Innovative Technical Exchange in Agriculture (IGNITE), in consultation with Digital Green.
