About this book

In the fragile and difficult environments of the world where hundreds of millions of families farm and live, the performance of agricultural research has been disappointing. Much of the problem lies in the process of generating and transferring technology, and the solution can lie with the farmers themselves. Starting with farmers' own innovations and contributions from the agricultural and social sciences, ecology, economics and geography, this book makes for a farmer first mode to complement conventional procedures.
