This paper synthesizes the key findings presented in the previous 15 papers in this journal, and presents a summary of a discussion on best approaches, strategies and partnerships to improve the utilization of food–feed crops. The synthesis provides guidance for future research and development in crop–livestock systems in developing countries. It also stresses the need for greater integration, focus, coordination of efforts to improve the utilization of food–feed crops, if the benefits from advances in research and output delivery are to reach the hundreds of millions of resource-poor livestock keepers in developing countries.
