Agricultural Systems, Second Edition, is a comprehensive text for developing sustainable farming systems. It presents a synthetic overview of the emerging area of agroecology applications to transforming farming systems and supporting rural innovation, with particular emphasis on how research can be harnessed for sustainable agriculture.

Begin 1. Introduction. The farming systems approach to development (FSD) has two inter-related thrusts. One is to develop an understanding of the farm-household, the environment in which it operates, and the constraints it faces, together with identifying and testing potential solutions to those constraints, The second thrust involves the dissemination of the most promising solutions to other.

Subsequently, the farming systems concept is introduced and the ways in which farming systems have been defined in this book are explained. The likely evolution of farming systems over the next 30 years is then outlined, and the main factors influencing the process are reviewed.

The Chapter ends with a reader's guide to the rest of the book.
