Farming Practices Survey 2007-2009
A total of three (3) surveys are to be conducted under the Farming Practice Survey during the following periods: 2007-2008, 2008-2009, and 2010-2011. The data documented here pertain to the baseline survey of 2007-2008.
The overarching goal of the MCA-Armenia program is to reduce rural poverty through better economic performance in the agricultural sector. The objective of the program's Water-to-Market Activity (WtM) is to provide training, technical assistance, access to credit and essential equipment under the MCC-funded Infrastructure Activity.
The primary purpose of the Farming Practices Survey (FPS) is to collect data for an impact evaluation of on-farm water management and high-value agriculture training, which is the primary component of WtM.
