Food security: Farmer Field Schools in Myanmar

A short case study about the positive impact of the Farmer Field Schools model on the most vulnerable

2011 Available in English

In 1995, Tearfund’s partner, World Concern Myanmar (WCM), which works in some of the poorest regions of the country, began to use an agricultural extension model known as Farmer Field Schools. This is a form of adult learning that evolved from the concept that farmers learn best when they identify their own problems, test solutions and modify their agricultural production techniques and crop management decisions accordingly.

This case study shares some of the success stories, which other village farmers have been able to copy, ensuring that everyone benefits from best practice.
