Research procedures for developing appropriate technologies

Research procedures for developing appropriate technologies

Centro Internacional de la Papa: Report of the planning conference on optimizing potato productivity in developing countries: 68-75

This chapter examines the reasons for the failure of farmers in developing countries to follow the recommendation of research and extension workers and suggests a procedure for overcoming such failures. The procedure emphasizes the need to ascertain the relevant farmers' circumstances and to integrate these into research aimed at developing new technologies. On-farm trials play a large part in the process and require the collaboration of farmers, biological scientists and economists.
