|Toelichting (Engels)||This report on the state of the art of farming systems research (FSR) reviews the history of this approach and attempts to define its scope, in both a broad and a narrow sense. The paper describes various on-farm research procedures, reports on experiences accumulated in this area in different international agriculture research centers, discusses the contributions of different disciplines to FSR, the relation of FSR to agricultural extension, and raises some wider questions related to the perspectives of, and needs for, carrying out FSR further in various institutional settings.|
