From Lab to Land: Women in 'push-pull' agriculture

The report examines the worlds of farming, agricultural extension and basic and applied scientific research through the eyes of nearly 80 women who work in these fields in Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. What these women have in common is that they have all at one time or another been involved with the push–pull programme. Push–pull is a cropping system designed to integrate pest, weed and soil management in cereal-based farming systems.
