Abstract: ‘Old school research’ was about ‘putting knowledge on the shelves’, without much concern for impact. Today, research is more concerned about change/impact. For example, ten years after the beginning of the project, FACASI is expected to double the annual income of 3,420 rural service providers, from the 2WT-based services they will provide: land preparation/direct seeding, threshing/shelling, and transport. In addition, 102,564 smallholders are expected to increase their income by at least 50%, thanks to reduced costs of cultivation, improved yields and increased labour productivity. Finally, 239,315 smallholder households adopting 2WT-based threshing, shelling and transport are expected to increase their income by at least 20%.
