Abstract
In the face of declining agricultural production and rising levels of poverty and food insecurity, KARl sought to increase its potential impact through shifting much of its adaptive research on-farm and through intensifying its work with partners who have become the bridge through which more farmers, particularly small scale producers, are reached. These interactions and approaches serve to heighten the relevance of KARl's research programme and induced a greater responsiveness to the practical issues facing farmers, with the result that there is an increasing stock of field-tested recommendations. However, coverage remains limited and relatively few of the improved methods have spread beyond the confines of communities that are the focus of intensive on-farm activities by KARl and partner organisations.
