Knowledge delivery with much humour. Ms. Remia Sullesta Capistrano, Agriculturist at Cabugao Norte, Santa Barbara, Iloilo, Philippines, discusses the merits of SSNM in rice with a group of Filipino farmers at a "Field School Meeting". The group meets regularly to discuss relevant issues, as crops are grown in the fields. Photo by IPI.

Agriculture and information knowledge systems today position the farmer at the centre with research, education and extension services surrounding him, maintaining direct links to the farmer and between themselves.

What is the best way to deliver knowledge to farmers? What kind of innovative 'extension products' and channels are needed? How do farmers prefer to receive the much needed advice? These questions are critical in identifying strategies to improve the 'last mile delivery' of knowledge to farmers.

Fertilizer Best Management Practices (FBMP) are developed to improve agricultural performance that is economically, socially and environmentally sustainable (IFA 2009). FBMPs are an array of site, crop and management specific recommendations made to improve sustainable agricultural production.

While FBMPs can be called 'finished' technology or set of practices, there is an acute need for a process in which relevant stake holders will adopt FBMPs.

This K center on Extension and Delivery of Knowledge brings you a collation of publications and data by crop, language and region that may assist you in extension activities. IPI supports dissemination of knowledge and constantly seeks for more, new innovative approaches to improve this process.
