During the past thirty years, Farming Systems Research (FSR) in Indonesia has changed significantly. This article traces the development of FSR from the 1970s, a time of confusion over the actual meaning of FSR, to the twentieth century, when major problems were the policy constraints and expectations to produce measurable results. The authors argue for a decentralized system of FSR as well as an appropriate balance between basic and on-farm research.
