Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Land users knowledge ought to be incorporated more in research and policies on rural development. A. finds in Kabale District of southwestern Uganda a wide range of indigenous soil and water conservation (ISWC) practices, and researchers and extensionists found two - trash lines and banana mulching - to be quite effective. However, ISWC methods are not enough to sustain soil fertility without the introduction of external resources and institutional guidance. Paper includes a ten-step framework for harnessing farmer innovation. - (SLD)
