It is to educate and equip the farmers to make proper plans, take appropriate decisions and also to take advantage of the improved technologies. The dossier describes traditional, modern and nearly practice-ready techniques for plant breeding along with assessments of their suitability for organic farming.

The overview of techniques is complemented by a position paper from an expert workshop on ecological plant breeding according to organic farming criteria. The dossier provides decision makers and practitioners of organic farming with.

This approach is a waste of time and money in many areas where it is implemented. Therefore, the second step in the IPM approach should be the training of farmers by building on so-called “Farmer Field Schools” where farmers learn to apply, adapt and improve the new control technologies.

By dealing with risk more effectively, better farming opportunities arise. Extension workers can help farmers improve their risk management skills.

They can help farmers recognize and understand their problems and assist them in making better farm management decisions. Workshop tools and equipment are used for construction and maintenance of farm tools, equipments and structures as illustrated below.

Uses of garden tools and equipment. There are many field management practices that are done on crops, such as pruning.

Nearly 80% of the participants found multi-year production planning to be moderately or very important, post-workshop, compared to a 31% pre-workshop level (Table 1 (A)).

The HAZID workshop methodology is illustrated in Figure below. The alternative farming techniques that were field tested and perfected over several generations in the past portrayed the following advantages over chemical farming: (1) eco-friendly by protecting and revving life support systems and ecosystem services, (2) higher cost benefit ratio, benefiting the farmers as well as the consumers, (3) control.
