Abstract/Description

The study coincided with a research project, “Identification of Pulling Factors for Enhancing the Sustainable Development of Diverse Agriculture in Selected Asian Countries (AGRIDIV)”, coordinated by UNESCAP-CAPSA. While the AGRIDIV project focused on poverty alleviation through secondary crop based agricultural diversification, the study concentrated on how small-scale vegetable farmers receive technology innovation to diversify agriculture and their possibility of engaging more in vertical diversification. This report presents the adaptability of short-term crop-rotation technology to farmers’ fields, the economic feasibility of the technology and the possibility of farmers’ engagement in vertical integration.
