Abstract Smallholder farming systems are diverse. One needs to understand this diversity if one wants to implement development projects or launch a business. Researchers must take into account what farmers do for what reasons. Africa RISING is a research-for-development programme that gathers information at the grass-roots level. One lesson our author learned doing rural research is that the point is not that development agents involve farmers in projects. It is, in fact, the other way round: Success depends on farmers allowing development workers to participate in their lives.
