dc.description.abstractThis thesis empirically examines the impact of agricultural groundnut research in Uganda and Ghana performed by the Peanut Collaborative Research Support Program (PCRSP), ICRISAT, NaSARRI, and CSIR-CRI. An ex-post economic surplus model is used to estimate consumer and producer benefits in Uganda from the adoption of improved groundnut varieties. In Ghana, this study evaluates the impact of Farmer Field School (FFS) on improving groundnut production by estimating the average treatment effect through the treatment effects model. Results indicate a positive effect at the national level in Uganda and household level in Ghana.
