This publication features some of the exemplary practices drawn from on-farm research undertaken as part of this project. A workshop was organized by IRRI with the assistance of the International Institute of Rural Reconstruction (IIRR). The workshop, which was held at the Central Soil and Water Conservation Research and Training Institute (CSWCRTI), Dehradun, India on 5-18 April 1999, brought all the participating scientists together primarily for the purpose of documenting best practices and strategies. Artists, editors, and desktop publishing staff provided support during the workshop. Papers were intensively reviewed and critiqued by participants representing a wide range of disciplines. Often, scientific assumptions were challenged. The practical relevance of the topics was continuously emphasized. Papers were revised and small teams were set up to further deliberate and improve the papers. At the end of two weeks, a near-final draft was prepared for review and finalization. The result is this publication, a user-friendly compilation of findings and practices of relevances to governments, NGOs, universities, district administrators, authors, and researchers within the region and in other countries with similar ecologies.
