Is your farmer field school intervention transforming livelihoods?
A Farmer Fields School is a group of up to 25 producers that meets regularly to identify common problems and develop collective solutions to local agricultural production issues. This approach is based on proven non-formal adult education foundations that seek to empower learners/farmers to make improved agricultural decisions adapted to diverse and variable field conditions; it is currently used by more than 90 countries in Asia, Africa, the Near East, Latin America and Europe and involves every year between 400 000 and 1 million farmers.
