There are mixed results on adoption of improved agricultural technology and changes in management of farming systems in Cambodia. There is substantial agricultural research being conducted within the country, and there are potential benefits if an improved understanding of farmer perceptions and behaviour can lead to more adoption of agricultural technology and improvements of farm-family wellbeing. The objectives of this project were to study smallholder perspectives and decisions concerning technology adoption in agro-ecological zones and farming systems of Cambodia. It sought to broaden our understanding of this issue by including a wider range of individuals, experts, and organisations than is typical to such studies.
