This book contains 48 fact sheets (in Spanish) written during 4,
five-day courses held in October and November 2005. The training was
given by Boa and Bentley under FIT-22, a project by ATICA and the Global
Plant Clinic. The introduction is given in both English and Spanish.
Each fact sheet was written by one técnico, and offers practical
solutions to farmers' problems. Each describes a technology and is
organised in three parts: the problem, basic facts, and a solution. The
technologies are linked to PITAs (applied technological innovation
projects) funded by the four Bolivian agricultural technology
development foundations. The technologies address pests and diseases and
other agronomic topics, including post-harvest storage and seeds. They
incorporate scientific, technical and local knowledge and are a
pragmatic blend of what works.
