Grains and field crops
Department of Agriculture
The purpose of this consultancy is to strengthen farming systems research methodology in the Thai Department of Agriculture (DOA) and in particular, the Department's Farming Systems Research Institute (FSRI). It follows from:
(i) the consultancy of Martin (1984) who found that DOA staff were having difficulty working out how to analyse farming systems; and
(ii) the three month stay in Australia of Pairat Duangpiboon to introduce him to the modelling techniques used in the Western Australian Department of Agriculture to analyse farming systems.
