Intensification

Identifying scalable agricultural technologies for sustainable intensification

USAID, USDA, CGIAR and other partners are developing ‘inventories’ to help drive widespread adaptation, dissemination, and adoption of critical agricultural technologies.

The inventories will provide a technical evidence base to help scale up appropriate technologies to greater numbers of smallholder farmers.

One of the seven inventory topics is sustainable intensification. The inventory compilers “welcome additional technologies with broad scalability as well as fine-tuning of existing entries.” Feedback and technical contributions can be provided via the comment facility on the web page (login is required).

The inventory is very much a work in progress and is intended provide examples of technologies that may be good candidates for widespread adaptation and adoption, but it is not intended to be comprehensive.
