Reinforcing research-extension linkages in Southern Senegal: evidence of adaptive research output

, : Reinforcing research-extension linkages in Southern Senegal: evidence of adaptive research output. Quarterly Journal of International Agriculture 32(2): 188-200

Lack of appropriate quantitative indicators of positive changes in the welfare of small-scale farmers has raised serious doubt about the efficacy of farming systems research (FSR) approaches in agricultural research. Failure of many projects due to lack of trained manpower and sustained funding, unavailability of research results 'on-shelf' and the particulars of each institutional set up, has overshadowed other qualitative or indirect benefits to the research-extension system as a whole.
