    Abstract: Technology awareness and adoption by farmers in Ethiopia are low. Therefore, the study was conducted to improve farmers’ awareness, and enhance the adoption of full package Tef production technologies. The large-scale demonstration was implemented in two regional states using the Tef variety Dagim, Ebba and Boset for two years (2020-2021). The demo... Show More
