Strengthening linkages in agricultural research through a farming systems perspective: the role of social scientists



Strengthening linkages in agricultural research through a farming systems perspective: the role of social scientists



Experimental Agriculture 24(2): 137-151



The principal contribution that the farming systems perspective brings to agricultural research is a farmer and problem-solving orientation. Development of this orientation helps strengthen linkages in national research systems between commodity programmes and between disciplines for both applied and adaptive research. It can also strengthen linkages between research and extension and between research and policy analysis.
