This study examined the effect of Agricultural Transformation Agenda Support Programme Phase 1 (ATASP-1) on Farmers' Performance in Southeast, Nigeria. It used a well-structured questionnaire to collect data from a cross-section of randomly selected 730 respondents. A combination of analytical tools such as descriptive statistics, Tobit and multiple regression analysis and inferential statistics were used for analysis. The study found that 56.6% of the farmers are males with an average age of 44 years, who are 87.8% married and have 10 years of formal schooling. Apart from over 19 years farming experience, the average 6 people per household is large enough to supply cheap family labour to the farmers. The study found out that the programme interventions are classified into three important components, which are infrastructure, financial/market and commodity value chain development. It was also revealed that farmers adopted the following agricultural technologies: the use of improved seed varieties, the use of ICT extension facilities, and keeping a good farm/processing record to track changes, among others. The study, therefore, recommended among others, that the programme implementers need to be transparent in their disbursement and implementation of the project mandates and that there is a need to improve the literacy level of the farmers, as this will go a long way to improve their possibilities of technology adoption.
