Farmer Field School (FFS) Training on 5th - 9th March 2018

EVENT DETAILS: Farmer Field School (FFS)

Farmer field school (FFS) is a group-based learning process that brings together concepts and methods from agroecology, experiential education and community development. It also involves regular field observations and group analysis. It is a major undertaking towards the realization of sustainable agriculture as it helps farmers make their own locally specific decisions about crop management practices. Special group activities encourage learning from peers, and strengthen communicative skills and team building. This training course is therefore intended to help participants to design and implement Farmer Field Schools as an extension practice to promote organic farming and agricultural productivity.
