Integration of adapted forages on farms in Southeast Asia - experiences from the forages for Smallholders Project



Integration of adapted forages on farms in Southeast Asia - experiences from the forages for Smallholders Project



Working with farmers: the key to adoption of forage technologies Proceedings of an International Workshop held in Cagayan de Oro City, Mindanao, Philippines from 12-15 October 1999: 221-226



This paper presents the experiences of the Forages for Smallholders Project (FSP) in developing forage technologies with smallholder farmers in south east Asia. The work was done at 19 sites in four countries (Indonesia, Philippines, Laos and Vietnam), and revealed that technology development is a learning process for both farmers and development workers. Farmers started by identifying problems that they could address by planting forages.
