Key recommendations
Develop and share costs benefits of different farm models that integrate and take account of technical support, economics, environment, climate change, available planting materials and land availability, which incorporate both intensification (better use of existing land) and diverse farming systems. Seeing is believing to promote change: We need to facilitate farmer to farmer exchanges on farming models so that farmers can choose optimum model suited to their needs, situation and capacities. Physical and exchanges and facilitating ICT are strongly recommended.
