A large diversity of CA cropping systems, staple crops and cover/relay crops are of interest for a large range of stakeholders. Field days are regularly organized for students, lecturers, agronomists and field technicians to exchange and to learn on the main principles of ecological intensification.
After 3 years demonstration, the farmers around the demonstration plot start to convince that innovative CA techniques could restore the soil fertility and increase the rice (Phkar Rumdoul) productivity. They are impressed with the benefits of Stylo to not improve the soil, but also high nutritious fodder for cattle and buffalo
The participants of 2nd forum on Sustainable Land Management of UNCCD were introduced innovative CA techniques for climate change mitigation and adaption. There were many discussions around effects of herbicides use, soil borne diseases, insects, no-till planter, and so forth. Social innovation and structural changes are the kept for up scaling.
Design, Assessment, Training and Extension (DATE) is a holistic and participatory approach that use to co-design the innovative CA techniques for cassava, hybrid corn, and lowland rice with the farmers. During the cropping season, there are a number of meeting, exchange, and show case for the farmers to learn by doing, and then able to adapt these techniques to their farm situation.
