Managing soil fertility in the tropics: a resource guide for participatory learning and action research

Publication year: 

This Resource Guide is based on extensive work done in several African countries. It is intended to provide user-friendly ways to gather, manage and analyse information and data by applying participatory learning and action research, and to suggest ways to use this knowledge to develop strategies for integrated soil fertility management. It can best be seen as a toolkit. It includes a textbook (Part 1), a collection of cases that explore field experiences with participatory learning and action research (Part 2), a set of 'all-weather' Field Tools on laminated cards (Part 3), a CD-ROM including a software package to assist in analysing data (Part 4), and a manual with detailed versions of the Field Tools plus a user's guide to the software (Part 5).
