Tribal farmer preferences for conservation agriculture production systems: An application of Analytic Hierarchy Process.
MetadataShow full item record
In winter of 2012, Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) was conducted in three Nepali villages in or near the Trisuli River valley and at two in-country research organizations. AHP was conducted with a total of 40 scientists and 41 randomly selected farmers. Expert Choice 11.5.829 was used to calculate results. Overall, soil quality (49%) was perceived as most important to the goal of improved income. This was followed by yield (25%), profit (14%), and labor savings (11%). Also in terms of improved income, CAPS 1 (cowpea monocrop with conventional tillage) was weighted highest (35%) and was followed by CAPS 3 (cowpea/millet intercrop with strip tillage; 34%), CAPS 2 (cowpea/millet intercrop with conventional tillage; 22%), and farmer practice (millet monocrop with conventional tillage 9%).
