Agricultural Systems, Second Edition, is a comprehensive text for developing sustainable farming systems. It presents a synthetic overview of the emerging area of agroecology applications to transforming farming systems and supporting rural innovation, with particular emphasis on how research can be harnessed for sustainable agriculture. Farming Systems Research posits that to contribute towards sustainable rural development, both interdisciplinary collaborations and local actor engagement are needed. Together, they allow for changes in understanding and changes in practices. This book gives an overview of the insights generated in 20 years of Farming Systems Research. farming systems throughout the six developing regions of the world. While recognizing the heterogeneity that inevitably exists within such broad systems, it is a central tenet of this book that the Farming Systems Approach, as used here, offers a useful framework for understanding the needs of those living within a system, the likely challenges andFile Size: KB.
