Approaches to On-farm Research in Asia Summary Proceedings of the Regional Workshop on On-farm Adaptive Research 18-20 Feb 1993 uri icon


  • On-farm adaptive research is an important component of agricultural research that attempts to adapt technology to suit farmers' conditions. A regional workshop in Vietnam brought together representatives of 13 member countries of the UNDP/FAO RAS/89/040 Project and from regional and international institutions in Asia, to exchange knowledge on on-farm research. Papers presented at the workshop include case studies from the Asian Grain Legumes On-farm Research Project countries, status reports on on-farm research and methodologies followed by different countries, and experiences of regional institutions working in Asia. Recommendations from the participants' discussions include suggestions for methodologies of on-farm research that involve farmer-participatory approaches
