The common dry bean (Phaseolus vulgaris L.) is the most widely grown food legume in Uganda,however, its production in western Uganda has been threatened by the bean root rot diseases.Resistant varieties and integrated soil and crop management package for the bean root rot disease,developed by the National Beans Research Programme, were promoted from 2003 to 2007 in Bushenyi and Kisoro Districts that were most susceptible to this disease.

This study was conducted to assess the level of uptake of technologies and practices promoted in the target area, and factors influencing the decision to adopt. Data were collected using a semi-structured questionnaire that was administered to 160 purposively selected bean farmers. The Poisson regression model was used to determine the factors influencing the number of technologies and practices used.
