This paper explores the existing land tenure systems in a rural area of West Africa. It analyzes the effects of these systems on the adoption of Mucuna, a land-improving annual technology that was newly introduced to the farmers. It highlights that four types of land tenure systems, based on mode of access to land, exist: A) Divided inheritance; B) Purchasing; C)Gifts; D) Sharecropping and renting. The paper concludes that the determinant for adoption of technology is the security over land and the number of times a crop is weeded.
