About the site and the developers
This site distills practical lessons from around the world - lessons gleaned while working at the University of California, CIMMYT and IRRI.
The aim is to meet the needs of farmers and extension workers wherever they are. When extension reaches farmers in a meaningful way, farmers and extension staff connect with one another, and thus the farmers become far more likely to integrate recommended practices on their farms and into their households – creating positive change in their own lives and those of their families and communities.
