Integrating crop production in lowland rice areas of the Philippines: a social scientist's view



Integrating crop production in lowland rice areas of the Philippines: a social scientist's view



Extension Bulletin ASPAC, Food and Fertilizer Technology Center ( 380): 8-13



In 1990, the Food and Fertilizer Technology Center began a series of field trials and field demonstrations to provide information to lowland rice farmers in the Philippines on how to make more intensive use of their paddy rice fields by growing other crops during the off season. This paper provides an account of the reaction of farmer cooperators to the project and their comments on the perceived costs and benefits.
