520 ## - SUMMARY, ETC.
Summary, etc. Results of recent on-farm research indicate that wheat yields can be more than|doubled if efficient production practices are used in Gezira. However, adoption of|the new technology package has been slow and a wide gap between potential and farmers' yields continue to exist. The present study showed that lack of access to the recommended practices, rather than economic inefficiency was the reason for low adoption and slow productivity growth. Results of this research indicate the importance of liberalizing the input procurement and distribution systems in Gezira for faster adoption and increased efficiency. Moreover, variations in farmers' circumstances were found to significantly influence optimal input use, and, hence, the technical efficiency of the recommended practices. The study, therefore, emphasized the need for defining recommendation domains in Gezira to allow for efficient testing of relevant technologies and reformulation of the research recommendations to fit the particular needs of the different target groups of farmers in the scheme.
