Being able and knowing how to choose: the critical issue in research and development in the south of Nicaragua


, : Being able and knowing how to choose: the critical issue in research and development in the south of Nicaragua. Cahiers de la Recherche Developpement ( 24): 77-88

The case of an agricultural development project in the 4th Region of Nicaragua is used to illustrate how farmers' knowledge can be incorporated into conventional agricultural research and development activities. The project promotes food production (maize, rice, sorghum and beans) on irrigated farms. The paper first looks at farmers' decision making strategies and the impact these have on their decision to adopt or reject innovation.
