Farming structures learn (FSR) could be outlined as a diagnostic strategy, offering a suite of equipment for researchers to appreciate farm families and their decision-making. Its functions use this knowing to extend potency within the use of human and budgetary assets for agricultural improvement, together with study, extension and coverage formulation.This ebook presents a close heritage of FSR. whereas it contains the applying of FSR to built kingdom agriculture, its major concentration is on FSR in its unique function, with small-scale, resource-poor farmers in much less constructed nations. There are a few forty contributions from approximately 50 participants from 20 international locations, illustrating either the variety and coherence of FSR. The booklet used to be initiated by way of the then overseas organization for Farming structures study and Extension (now overseas Farming platforms organization) and built with aid from FAO. It offers a wealth of knowledge and insights for all serious about agricultural improvement.

3 THE EVOLUTION OF FSR-E IN ASIA THROUGH THE MID 1970S: A VIEW FROM IRRI Richard Harwood The major resource allocation problem which faced systems research in the 1970s, as it does now, is that systems understanding is one step removed from actual impact, and is not as obvious in its contributions to eventual improvement. Introduction The framework for Asian FSR and extension in the 1970s can be traced directly from the work of Dr Richard Bradfield. His research took place within the context of a centuries-old evolution of intensive cropping systems by Asian farmers and was influenced along the way by those researching farming systems, particularly in Africa.

Water availability will limit non-rainy season rice production. ● Water can be developed for year-round use in most of Asia. ● Average rice yields can be increased 2–5 times over the next two human generations. ● Farmers’ need for income will require a doubling of farm size, the yield of rice increased 2–4 times, and non-rice crops grown in dry season. ● Multiple cropping intensity must be doubled. ● Field operations must be minimized and mechanized. From these assumptions, Bradfield developed his system which, by 1971, he termed the ‘maximum cropping project’5, making maximum use of geophysical resources, crop rotations and the integration of mechanization6.
