Demand assessment for on-farm management of natural resources. Scientific report.
The aim of the research was to estimate the likely level of demand for innovations in on-farm natural resource management, specifically relating to plant genetic resources, soil fertility management and soil and water management. This was approached by addressing three outputs:
(1) Identification and quantification of reasons for low uptake of natural resource management technologies
(2) Identification of the potential of available technologies to meet production system constraints in ways acceptable to farmers
(3) Quantification of the demand for different types of natural resource management technology among different categories of rural household.
