The objective of this study was to investigate farmers' adoption of sulla (Hedysarum coronarium L.) cultivation in northern Tunisia. Sulla adoption at farmer level and farmers‟ perception about the role of sulla were investigated through a survey of 216 farming households in 2017. The cultivation of sulla by farmers in the region reflected its adoption, with most farmers introducing it to their crop rotation cultivating system. The results obtained confirm the general acceptability of sulla in contributing towards farmers‟ livelihoods, and also that sulla is well adapted to grow in northern Tunisia.
