    Farming communities of the FARM Programme field sites often indicated that they would like to receive more technical information particularly in relation to soil management, improving the efficiency of fertiliser use, increasing output and controlling costs. In attempting to respond to this need the FARM Programme used the modality of the Farmer Field School (FFS) as a learning tool for natural resource management. The FFS approach has enjoyed remarkable success in the implementation of the Int egrated Pest Management Intercountry Programme (IPM) in rice production in the region. The FFS approach in rice cultivation showed that farmers can become experts at ecosystem analysis and make informed decisions about necessary interventions, from both an ecological and an economic point of view. It seemed reasonable to assume that the FFS concept could be applied to enterprises and processes other than integrated pest management in rice production.
