What determines farmers’ awareness and interest in adopting cricket farming?

Farming crickets for human consumption is emerging as a promising novel and sustainable animal-source food production system. Cricket farming in Kenya first began in 2013. Adoption rates, however, have been slower than expected. In our recent paper, me and some of my colleagues from the former GREEiNSECT project present a pilot study of farmers’ awareness of and interest in adopting cricket farming as a new agricultural technology in three counties of Nyanza district, Kenya. 

Check out the study here.
