Evaluation de l'adoption des variétés de riz NERICA dans l'Ouest du Burkina Faso

Mathieu Ouédraogo and Dona Dakouo

African Journal of Agricultural and Resource Economics, 2017, vol. 12, issue 1

Abstract: Cet article vise à évaluer le taux d'adoption actuel et potentiel des variétés de riz NERICA (New Rice for Africa) et identifier les déterminants de leur connaissance et adoption au Burkina Faso. Des enquêtes ont été menées en 2009, auprès de 300 producteurs de riz de 10 villages rizicoles de sélection variétale participative. La méthode de l'effet moyen du traitement (ATE) a permis de déterminer un taux commun d’exposition et d’adoption des NERICA de 17% en 2008 et un taux potentiel d’adoption de 37%. Ceci montre qu’il existe un écart d'adoption de 20% lié à la diffusion incomplète des NERICA qu'il faut combler en menant davantage d’actions de diffusion de ces variétés. Le contact avec la recherche agricole constitue le principal facteur déterminant de l'exposition et de l'adoption des NERICA au Burkina Faso. --- This paper aims to assess the actual and potential adoption rate of NERICA (New Rice for Africa) rice varieties and identify the determinants of their diffusion and adoption in Burkina Faso. The surveys were conducted in 2009 among 300 rice farmers in 10 villages participating in the rice varietal selection tests. The average treatment effect (ATE) method made it possible to determine a common rate of exposure to and adoption of NERICA of 17% in 2008, and a potential adoption rate of 37%. This means that there is an adoption gap of 20% due to the incomplete diffusion of NERICA, which must be addressed by carrying out more actions to disseminate these varieties. The contact with agricultural research services is a key factor determining the awareness and adoption of NERICA in Burkina Faso.
