Participatory research has been shown to promote farmer-to-farmer extension and increase agricultural productivity particularly when inclusive of women.  It has also shown success with the introduction of improved crop varieties such as with higher yielding rice varieties in Ghana  that was complemented with an attention to education to support local adaptation capacity.

This book provides a comprehensive description and assessment of the use of participatory plant breeding in developing countries. It is aimed at plant breeders, social scientists, students and practitioners interested in learning more about its use with the hope that they all will find a common ground to discuss ways in which plant breeding can be beneficial to all and can . Farmer Research Committees (also known in Latin America as Comites de Investigacion Agropecuario Local or CIALs) are an approach to community organizing and agricultural extension that provides rural communities and farmer organizations in developing countries with an adaptive research and technology testing service run by volunteer farmers. This approach .
Main Components and Characteristics of Farmer Participatory Research. 1. The main goal of farmer participatory research is to develop appropriate agricultural technology to meet the production needs of the small, resource-poor farmers. It is the reverse of the transfer of technology paradigm. Participatory Farm Management methods are simple tools which enable farmers working on their own, or with research or extension workers, to explore their activities and the use and production of associated resources. The methods were developed by working closely with small-scale farmers in developing countries and have been successfully.

Farmer participatory research (FPR) is an approach, which involves encouraging farmers to Farmer participatory research book in experiments in their own fields so that they can learn, adopt new technologies and spread them to other farmers. With the scientist acting as facilitator, farmers and scientists closely work together from initial design of the research project to.
In Farmer Participatory Research, the authors describe and critique how farmer participatory research is presently being used within a broad range of agricultural research and development programmes. They argue for the linkage of project objectives with implementation strategies.
Participatory research tends to focus initially on small numbers Farmer participatory research book clients. It is therefore more expensive per client than the technology transfer approach, but much more effective. Some might argue that the Training and Visit Extension System's `contact farmer' is an example of participatory dissemination.
In reality, however Cited by: The practical experiences of participatory research in the book are expected to be a good reference to those researchers and research institutions to implement and institutionalize the approach.

To find if the Library owns the item. "Addressing the Grand Challenges faced by agriculture under a global changing climate requires a highly client-oriented, participatory research-for-development approach. This book provides insights on, and lessons learnt from ‘citizen science’ for both decentralized plant breeding and on-farm variety testing.
Taking farming systems research as a point of departure, and with the objective of developing monitoring and evaluation guidelines, the authors of this volume describe and critique how farmer participatory research is presently being used within a broad range of agricultural research and development programmes.
Research and development can no longer be the exclusive domain of scientists. To find sustainable solutions to development problems, a wider range of actors must be involved. It is crucial, for example, that local stakeholders provide input to the process.
Participatory research and development (PR&D) offers such an inclusive model. This three-volume sourcebook. The Farmer First Revisited workshop highli ghted a vast range of innovative practice and experimentation over the past 20 years in farmer participatory approaches and methods.
The literature on this approach uses different terms such as CBAR, community-based participatory research, and community action research to denote research done with communities. CBAR is an approach to research that focuses on local action and strategies to address specific problems in specific situations (Stringer, ).

However, there is wide diversity of opinion about the scope and nature of farmer participation in the implementation of FPR. This study compared different FPR. Participatory action research approaches have been developed and applied in four main areas: 1) participatory research in community development, 2) action research in organisations, 3) action research in schools, and 4) farmer participatory research.
This book gives details of how, where and for what purpose PAR approaches have been used and discusses the role of the. Farmer participatory research is a process of designing and implementing on-farm trials to test and further improve agricultural technologies and agronomic practices.
This paper offers a conceptualmodel for participatory research projects thataim to improve the sustainability ofagriculture and natural resource purpose of the model is to provide asystematic framework that can guide the designof participatory research projects, theiranalysis, and the documentation of results.
