2017 Smallholder Agricultural Productivity

The APM data was collected in two rounds, that is, post-planting and post-harvest, designed to coincide with major periods of the main agricultural season in the country. The post-planting data collection was conducted between April and June 2017 while the post-harvest data collection occurred between September and November 2017. The sizes of all farm plots were measured using Global Positioning System (GPS). A total sample of 2 528 households was selected for the APM Survey from the PICES 2017 households. A total of 2 338 households were successfully interviewed giving a 92.5 percent response rate.
