Consultancy for Agronomist to Assist Field Team in Midline Data Collection in Uganda


As part of a OneCG initiative on testing behavioral constraints to seed varietal turnover in Uganda, we will test a production side intervention (trial seed packs) and a consumer side intervention (promoting nutritional traits) in Eastern Uganda over the course of two agricultural seasons. The study started in the beginning of 2023 when a seed trial pack intervention was rolled out. A second round of data collection will happen in August 2023, at which point the consumer intervention will also have been implemented. In February 2024, an endline survey will be organized to measure the impact of both interventions on the adoption of improved seed varieties. This contact only covers the midline survey data collection part (running from July 2023 up to September 2023).

Scope of work:

  1. Coordinate with the Lead consultant and IFPRI Research Assistants in the collection of quantitative data of about 2200 farmers to be collected using tablets running ODK.
  2. Submit and provide agronomic expertise in the development and translation of data collection questionnaire
  3. Training for enumerators and pre-test of questionnaire in selected districts
  4. Liaise with government officials and community leaders to get necessary buy in and cooperation
  5. Supervise one field team during field operations
  6. Complete midline dataset and field report on data results.

The fieldwork is expected to take about 25 full-time labor days of the consultant.

Period of Performance: July – September, 2023

IFPRI prioritizes safety of fieldwork activities for both field staff and participants. We are thus prioritizing individuals, firms, and enumerators who are fully vaccinated if vaccines are widely available for the general population. If vaccines are not widely available, we will ask for rapid antigen tests for enumerators/lead and give preference to rural based experienced enumerators to reduce Covid-19 transmission from urban to rural areas.
