We are especially interested in research design, ways of getting
farmers involved, the respective roles played by farmers and
researchers, the relationship between on-farm and experiment
station research, and the eventual use of the results.
To help us cover this subject thoroughly, we are requesting
copies of papers and reports describing specific research
projects conducted on farmers' fields. We are primarily seeking
materials that give details about the research strategies used;
the review is about methods, not results. We are especially
interested in research on organic farming, but are eager to learn
about all on-farm research, whatever its topic, and whatever the
way in which farmers participated.
Please help in this effort by sending copies of materials that
you or your colleagues have written. Also, we would appreciate
citations to other materials that you yourself cannot send.
