A checklist for farmer-friendly information. Validated RNRRS Output.

Abstract

This is one of 280 summaries describing key outputs from the projects run by DFID's 10-year Renewable Natural Resources Research Strategy (RNRRS) programmes.

Summary for Project title: R8281: Linking the demand for, and supply of, agricultural production and post-harvest information in Uganda and R8429: Linking supply and demand in Uganda phase 2.

People who advise farmers - government, non-government and private enterprise - can now use a checklist to make sure that they give farmers the information farmers want, in a form that farmers can use. Most poor farmers in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia just don't get user-friendly information that would help them decide how to make best use of their land and resources. The checklists reinforce the trend in agricultural information and extension towards demand-driven services. They're now used by national agricultural advisory services and universities in Uganda, private agricultural advisory services, and research and extension organisations. And, because they're not specific to any location or culture they have a huge potential to be used globally.

The CD has the following information for this output: Description, Validation, Current Situation, Environmental Impact. Attached PDF (8 pp.) taken from the CD.
