Many of these smallholder family farmers are poor and food insecure and have limited access to markets and services. Their choices are constrained, but they farm their land and produce food for a substantial proportion of the world’s population. With regional demand for livestock products projected to grow by more than % by , development of the livestock sector offers a unique pathway to improve income and nutrition for the poor, particularly women. Our work in this area focuses .

The increased use of modern technologies has increased the yield of crops per hectare. The increase in farmers' income boosts economic development more generally. 9.   tage of new economic opportunities at the urban fringe.

The farm-level economics of conservation agriculture (zero tillage, mulching and crop rotation)are described, reviewed and modelled. The economics are defined broadly to include not just shortterm financial benefits and costs, but also the whole-farm management context, constraints on key resources such as labour and capital, risk and uncertainty, interactions between enterprises, and time.
