    Abstract

    This paper develops rapid reconnaissance guidelines for conducting research on agricultural marketing components of food systems. A rapid reconnaissance survey is a broad and preliminary overview of the organization, operation and performance of a food system or components therefore, designed to identify system constraints and opportunities. It can be used as a tool for identifying system dynamics, linkages and overall problems, which can then be examined more intensely during follow-up programs of research.
