ADePT Agriculture was developed to facilitate the computation and production of agricultural statistics and indicators from household and farm survey data. It generates print-ready tables that describe the characteristics of the agricultural sector, and the factors that affect agricultural productivity. ADePT Agriculture is designed for use with household level data, but can be equally used with data from surveys that sample farms rather than households. ADePT Agriculture consists of two modules focusing respectively on crops and livestock.
The tool is intended for use by policy analysts, agricultural ministries staff, NGOs and international organizations and researchers interested in getting a better understanding of the farm household economy. By making it simpler and faster to produce analytical reports, ADePT Agriculture frees up resources for the interpretation of results, and facilitates using data to design evidence based policies and investments. By making the analysis easier and faster for a wider range of users, ADePT Agriculture can also increase the demand for and utilization of new and existing household survey data.
ADePT Agriculture was developed in cooperation with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).
The ADePT Agriculture - Crops module employs user provided data to produce information of relevance to key domains of agricultural policy analysis. In particular the module generate tables on farm structures, land use, tenancy arrangement status, by regions and over expenditure and land quintiles. It also generates tables on land quality features, the use of agricultural inputs and services, crop production and income, and constraints to crop production.

The ADePT Agriculture - Livestock module facilitates the computation and analysis of livestock statistics and indicators from household survey data. Livestock contribute in multiple ways to household’s livelihoods, including through the provision of cash income, food, manure, draft power and hauling services, savings and insurance and social status. The Livestock module automates and standardizes the analysis of survey data and the production of analytical tables on the livestock sector. ADePT Agriculture - Livestock generates a set of tables that describe the key characteristics of the livestock sector and its relationship to household livelihoods.
