Agricultural Options for Small-Scale Farmers is a book filled with practical options for those working to assist small-holder farmers and urban gardeners in the tropics and subtropics, many of whom struggle to produce enough food to feed their families. How can we help the farmer who must survive on a small parcel of degraded land without water or a means to purchase fertilizer? Information is abundant, but how does one sort through it all to find out what interventions will really make a difference? This is where perspective is so important, and the best way to gain it is to connect with like-minded people who have the benefit of experience.Foundational concepts, such as the weaving of agriculture and community development, are covered in this publication. It contains insights on research to be undertaken, as well as factors and issues to consider, before investing valuable resources in specific project interventions.
