Abstract: 

Small farmers produce much of the developing world's food, yet they are generally much poorer than the rest of the population in these countries. This book looks in detail at some 20 farming systems that are judged to have the greatest potential for poverty and hunger reduction and economic growth in the next few decades, and asks the crucial question: What are likely to be the most successful strategies for small farmers in each system, and what sort of initiatives can best help farmers to realize them?
