In a recent study published on the Journal of Development Studies, we find evidence that Junior Farmer Field Schools had positive effects on students’ agricultural knowledge and adoption of good practices. The programme also produced spillover effects in terms of improvements of household agricultural knowledge and food security. Overall, our results point to the importance of adapting the basic principles of farmer field schools to children.
