Abstract: Although Sudan is a predominately agricultural economy, crop productivity is extremely low and does not exceed 30% of the level attained in research farms. The aim of this paper is to address the strategic and policy challenges facing technological transformation and productivity increase in Sudan. This paper examines the various factors which influence the agricultural technology adoption decisions as well as the constraints facing the agricultural sector in Sudan. The paper also demonstrates that complexity and linkages of the various technology adoption factors represent real challenges in future technology management in Sudan. Finally, a number of findings emerge which outlines the key issues relating to effectively manage the technological transformation in Sudan as well as helping policy makers to take appropriate and immediate measures to improve the agricultural productivity in Sudan.
