BLOOM is a community-based, cluster randomised controlled evaluation of APCNF led by the University of Edinburgh and the Centre for Health Analytics Research and Trends (CHART), Trivedi School of Biosciences, Ashoka University in partnership with RySS. APCNF RySS clusters will be the unit of randomisation; intervention households will receive training in APCNF practices immediately following baseline and control households will receive the same training after 24 months. The primary outcomes will be (1) pesticide exposure, (2) dietary diversity, (3) household income, and (3) crop yield. Secondary outcomes will be adult glycemia, adult kidney function, adult self-reported symptoms (musculoskeletal pain, headache, respiratory symptoms, dermatological symptoms, and depression), and, in children, growth and cognitive development.
