Abstract

The Farmer Field School stakeholders' forum was attended by over 100 participants drawn from, amongst others, the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock Development, the national extension service, farmers, non-governmental organizations, national and international research institutions, donors, and international organizations. With the Farmer Field Schools (FFS) approach gaining increased attention in Kenya more than 1000 active FFS groups involving about 30,000 farmers the objectives of the workshop were to increase awareness of FFS and allow those already involved in FFS to be able to learn and benefit from the experience of others.
