The structure of African agriculture presents a unique set of challenges to increasing productivity. The bulk of African agriculture is small-scale, in highly diversified, rain-fed farming systems. Such systems, which are often very complex, have received scant attention resulting in little knowledge of how they function. Further, there is a limited flow of information from the farm to inform research, education and extension systems. To ameliorate this situation there needs to be an integrated approach around the research, extension and education triangle, with the farmer at the center. Farmer organizations need to partner with research, education and extension organizations in a participatory system, which effectively links knowledge, innovation, science, research, education and advice.
