Agricultural technologies for market-led development opportunities in the 1990s is a compilation of 19 articles written by experts in technology development, management and application. Business executives and practitioners document their experiences in the application of technology to small, medium and large enterprises, while researchers analyze technology transfers and their impact on changing relationships between producers and consumers. Authors examine the links between technology and producers; technology and consumers; and technology and small business. Several important lessons are presented in each chapter.
Community-based and environmentally safe pest management is the proceedings of a Workshop held at the International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology (ICIPE), Nairobi, May 1991. The Symposium was an important milestone because it contributed towards a better understanding of the components required for developing sustainable community-based pest management, with a large proportion of the papers focused on the cultural and socio-economic context for effective pest and vector management. The conference affirmed that the small farmer sector is one of the most important in the African economy; and emphasised the need for it to be recognized and supported by all concerned so that it can realize its full potential as a primary productive community.
