Farmer-dominant study groups. A review of farmers' motives for forming and joining groups, and reports of two groups with similar objectives in very different contexts

This paper begins by identifying seven purposes for which groups may be formed, before going on to report on a particular type of group, namely the farmer-dominant study group (FDSG) which has the aim of supporting its members in evaluating, field-testing and adapting new technologies.
