Spillover Effect Kenya Analysis

Publication
This report reviews an analysis One Acre Fund undertook to better understand the extent to which farmers who live in our program areas, but who are not enrolled in the program, still receive some program benefit.

One Acre Fund undertook this analysis in order to be6er understand the extent to which farmers who live in our program areas, but who are not enrolled in the program, still receive some program benefit. We hypothesize that neighboring farmers and those who have personal connections with One Acre Fund farmers could learn about and adopt One Acre Fund training practices and possibly see a benefit in terms of improved yields.
We know from anecdotal evidence that this is happening to some degree. Non-One Ace Fund farmers who we survey as part of our regular M&E sometimes tell us they plant “the One Acre Fund way.” However, we have never before attempted to measure or quantify the spillover of our program to non- participating farmers.
