This manual will help you improve your farm by combining problem solving and experimentation with day-to-day farm management. The step-by-step process outlined here is based on the know-how of experienced farmers who have developed innovative approaches for adapting their farms to changes. By explaining the techniques these farmer innovators use, this manual will teach you how to successfully identify research questions, test alternative solutions, and collect data for yourself.
