This report assesses the economic impact of three ACIAR projects on wheat and maize in Afghanistan. An initial desktop analysis was augmented with a detailed survey of farmers in Afghanistan, undertaken by in-country non-government organisations. In addition to promising findings on yield improvements, the assessment reveals fascinating insights on microeconomic behaviour in poor farming communities and subsequent implications for future investment and policymaking.
