Linking with Farmers
Throughout the tropics, a growing number of individuals and groups are developing Low-External-Input and Sustainable Agriculture (LEISA) technologies, as well as participatory methods of extending them. Many of these innovative people are joining forces to exchange information and co-operate more closely, in order to learn from each other and to create a more favourable policy climate for LEISA.
This text presents experiences of different forms of networking to promote LEISA, focusing on linkages among and between farmers, development fieldworkers and researchers.
