At the request of MINAGRI and USAID, FSRP with MINAGRI/DSA began to conduct seasonal agricultural surveys similar to the ones conducted by the pre-war MSU project "Enquete Agricole" to provide regular data on land use, cultivated area by crop and other uses, use of inputs and crop production results. Since Season A of 2000, FSRP and MINAGRI/DSA enumerators have been visiting a set of 1584 households in a nationally representative sample. Several special issues have been covered in addition to the data indicated above, including aspects of fertilizer use, food aid, coffee, and rural labor and deaths.
