Mixed Farming Systems
Building methods and tools for sustainable intensification of mixed farming system
This area of work involves developing, adapting, and applying new and existing methods and tools for the analysis of current mixed farming systems and the design of more intensified and sustainable systems. Quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods and tools provide the basis for the prioritization, foresight, targeting, and implementation of innovation packages as part of the process of co-designing sustainably and equitably intensified mixed farming systems in specific agroecological and socioeconomic settings.
