Detail

SARID (Sustainable Agriculture Research for International Development) was a successful programme. It produced high quality science; there was more movement towards developmental impact in some projects than expected; and participants themselves, both scientists and stakeholders, viewed it as successful and well-run. It provided a unique opportunity to link fundamental research through to its application in developing countries, enabling the same scientists who had understanding of the mechanisms underlying specified processes (such as the interactions between pests and plants) to transfer that knowledge to application to the field.
