GCARD2010: Technology doesn’t magically make its way to poor households

I think a key challenge for resource-poor farmers is access to new technologies. In traditional extension approaches, it is considered that technology will magically make it’s way through to poor households and that doesn’t happen.” Noel Magor, Head of Training, International Rice Research Institute, IRRI


One thought on “GCARD2010: Technology doesn’t magically make its way to poor households

  1. We need to look the role of animal husbandry in development of weaker sections of the society. We need to look it not as allied aspect of farming but as a whole and separate aspect so as to justify mobilization and allocation of funds.
    More over we need to harmonize transgenesis and organic farming. where really we wants to go in future and take future generations out of this dilemma and obscurity.
    I hope such conferences needs to address such issues.
    good luck
