This study aims to evaluate the impacts of innovation platforms as a technology transfer approach on adoption a recommended package and yield of wheat in the Sudan using a purposive random sample of 532 wheat farmers in season 2016/2017. The determinants of adoption were analyzed using logistic regression, multivariate probit and double hurdle models while the impact on yield was estimated using instrumental variables regression. Empirical results proved that farmers participation in innovation platforms significantly enhanced adoption, the determinants of area allocation under the package were mostly farmrelated such as the farm area and access to services while both technology-related and marketing factors determined yield. The average increase in yield was 0.99 ton/ha with 1.12, 1.03, 0.69, 1.02 ton/ha estimated for the River Nile, Northern, Gezira and Kassala states, respectively. Policy implication urges using innovation platforms as a new technology transfer approach for enhanced wheat production in the Sudan.
