Customer reviews

Almost 1.4 billion people work in agriculture, of whom 96% live in developing countries. Most farms in these regions are family-run and poor. Family farming is thus a major socioeconomic issue.This work covers the analyses and diagnoses of production systems on which agricultural development work in the field is generally based. It suggests an approach and tools that serve to describe farmers' choices and practices in terms of production, processing and marketing, to explain their coherence and to identify the technical and socioeconomic driving forces at play.
The handbook comes with a CD-ROM, and is intended for anyone involved in supporting farmers. It should help them diagnose production systems and find ways of improving those systems.
