Alley farming in south-western Nigeria: the role of Farming Systems Research in technology development



Alley farming in south-western Nigeria: the role of Farming Systems Research in technology development



Planned change in farming systems: progress in on farm change: 85-108



In 1978 the International Livestock Centre for Africa (ILCA) set up a research programme aimed at improving the living standards of smallholder farmers in the humid zone of West Africa by raising the productivity of their sheep and goats. The initial work, based on the assumption that the whole farming system would have to change, focused on pasture and improved pasture species that could be used for animal fodder.
