The objective of this communication is to present the first results of the evaluation of learning processes induced by a global extension approach to family farms in Benin, CEF. This evaluation, comparing producers before the beginning of the training and 1 year later, is based on the identification of the causal chain of changes in producers' management decisions and representations, leading to impacts both at household and farm levels. At this point, the communication will describe the results of the baseline work, showing that among the 33 producers interviewed, we have a very wide range of farming systems and set of resources, generally not linked to the level of formalization of strategic decisions at the farm management level.
