Innovating conservation agriculture: The case of no-till cropping
MetadataShow full item record
Attempts to develop predictive models of conservation agriculture implementation by farmers have failed. However, the actor-network theory can be used to analyze conservation agriculture as a completely new type of system with new beliefs about soils, plants, the environment, and farmers. The implementation of conservation agriculture is due to the social networks that connect farmland, farmers, farm advisors, and farm extension agents. The spread of these new networks has led to new innovative cropping methods such as conservation agriculture.
