  1. Adoption of hybrid maize in Zambia : effects on gender roles, food consumption, and nutrition.

    Fascicule - En anglais

    This report examines farm household-level factors that influence the adoption of hybrid maize in Eastern Province and the implications of adoption for improvement in household income, food consumption, and nutrition and health of the rural population.

    The characteristics of adoption, such as who adopts and what other changes are associated with it, in particular its implications for household labor allocation and intrahousehold access to resources, are expected to influence food consumption and the nutritional status of the population.
