Technology for Small-Scale Farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa. Experience with Food Crop Production in Five Major Ecological Zones
AbstractThis study draws together information on the technology which is available to small-scale farmers in Africa and assesses its applicability in the context of the financial, economic and manegerial constraints which face rural households. It also draws on the experience of the World Bank through an analysis of the technologies which have been proposed for twenty-five projects in five different ecological zones.
