Copublished by ACIAR and CIAT (International Center for Tropical Agriculture), this book recounts the stories of innovative farmers, both men and women, who transformed marginal farming into productive, profitable and market-oriented enterprises. The 11 case studies presented here were collected from upland areas of Indonesiia, Laos, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. They document the nature and scale of livelihood impacts that can emerge from the combination of robust forage varieties, sound management practices and research approaches that encourage farmer innovation.
