Blurb/Shorttext:
The productivity of agricultural crops in the hillside systems has either been static or declining over the last two decades. Understanding of the existing variabilities of maize cultivation, local knowledge, social, climatic and agronomic context & micrometeorological parameters experienced by maize are pre-requisite in designing on-farm adaptive research & development. The work presented in this book has clearly demonstrated that understanding of crop production environments, & involving them in the research and development efforts can improve the efficiency of research by enhancing technology uptake thereby reversing declining yield. This will address food deficit problem in the complex & heterogeneous hillside systems. Business as usual will not work, institutional commitment, effort and change in mindset up of professionals including policy makers are also equally important, if participatory research and development is to be sustainably effective.
