The study investigated factors affecting proportions of land allocated to the yam mini-sett technology among 120 randomly selected farmers in Northern Ghana. About 41% of the farmers allocated about 33% of their yam land to the technology. Results from the Tobit regression model suggest that the dissemination of the technology must also target farmers who are non-natives, household heads, less experienced, have large household sizes, and record low yields. The process must consider the type of cropping systems, seed yam production and collaborations with non-formal educational programs. Training must promote positive perception about the technology and proliferation of off-farm income generating activities.
Key words: Adoption, Northern Ghana, Tobit, yam mini-sett.
