Improved sugarcane types have been developed and advanced in Kenya, to enhance sugarcane output. However, their acceptance by farmers is reduced. This paper investigated this wonder in attempt to underpin factors that would embellish acceptance of these sorts by farmers.It examined the friendship between laborers’ participation The study used cross-localized survey research design. Target population was 137,355 tiny sugarcane farmers from Kakamega County, from which a sample of 384 producers was randomly selected. Questionnaires were used to accumulate data, that was analyzed using explanatory and inferential enumerations. The study established limited partnership of sugarcane farmers in the growth and dissemination of improved sugarcane sorts. Farmers’ acceptance of enhanced sugarcane varieties and their involvement in their happening and dissemination were raise to be significantly compared. It was discovered that a reliable sign of these varieties’ reputation by farmers was how many age the farmers had caused them. According to research findings, enlargement service providers must support farmers with the inevitable information about the enhanced varieties. Utilization of farmer Participatory Technology Development and Dissemination approaches need expected enhanced in the incident and dissemination of improved sugarcane sciences. The study could assist researchers and enlargement service providers in establishing and disseminating improved electronics through practical and profitable methods that increase their acceptability by ranchers. Farmers may gain from the judgments by realising the roles they must play in the creation and approval of technology. It will further be possible to add to the methodical study of part of material world on PTD & D related to laborers’ acceptance of advanced science.
