Smallholder ADOPT (Adoption and Diffusion Outcome Prediction Tool) is an MS Excel-based tool that evaluates and predicts the likely level of adoption and diffusion of specific agricultural innovations in a developing country smallholder context. The tool is available for download at https://research.csiro.au/software/adopt/adopt-smallholder/.
The Adoption and Diffusion Outcome Prediction Tool (ADOPT) was developed as a tool to encourage application in project planning and implementation of well-established understanding of the socioeconomic factors influencing adoption of agricultural innovations. It is designed to predict the likely level and rate of adoption, and to engage practitioners in considering factors influencing adoption. Smallholder ADOPT is designed to provide an understanding of the technology adoption process, as part of the wider processes of agricultural innovation.
