Author

Lane, Charles R.; Pretty, Jules N.

Description

Under pressure to increase food production, the green revolution transferred packages of technologies, new crop varieties and chemicals. Despite statistical increases in production, many side effects arose. This article examines the effects on traditional African farming systems, in particular the Barabaig pastoralists in the Hanang district.
