Sustainable agricultural development using a farming systems approach in Zambia



Sustainable agricultural development using a farming systems approach in Zambia



Ecological Economics Amsterdam 15(2): 149-156



Zambia implemented the Farming Systems Research and Extension (FSR/E) approach to development of agricultural technologies during the last decade. The results seem to indicate that the interrelated objectives of increasing productivity, income and short-term food security of small-scale farmers have been addressed, but the achievements may have come at the expense of long-term sustainability in agricultural development.
