Farming systems approach to agricultural research and extension for small farmers



Farming systems approach to agricultural research and extension for small farmers



Journal of Agricultural Issues 1(1): 55-62



The relevance of the farming systems research and extension (FSR & E) approach, activities and methodology are illustrated using the example of pigeon peas in Chattisgarh region, Madhya Pradesh. The logical sequence for FSR & E activities is: target and research area selection, problem identification and development of a research and information base, planning and conducting of experiments, on-farm research and the transfer of technology.
