This project focused on the analysis of farmers’ value chain and marketing operations, and synthesis of best-bet technologies, with transect analysis from lowlands to uplands, and from subsistence to commodity agriculture.  

Adaptive on-farm research was established on approximately 300 farms in ten villages associated with these systems hubs to improve productivity and income from diversified systems in the lowlands and uplands, including attention to the priority poor upland districts of Xepon, Phin and Nong.
