FSSP FSR/E TRAINING UNITS VtLURES
* The FSSP has produced two volumes of training units to assist with the
training of professionals in the necessary skills of Farming Systems Research
and Extension (FSR/E). Each unit provides specific learning objectives, key
points, definitions of terms, a brief text, suggested training activities and
practical exercises, and trainer's notes. Each FSSP Support Entity
institution has received a complementary copy of the set of volumes. Please
contact your program leader (PL) or administrative coordinator (AC) to find
out how you can have access to these training materials. If you wish to
obtain personal copies of the volumes for use and reference, you may either
photocopy the materials at your institution or purchase a set at the cost of
$175.00.

* Volume one, Diagnosis in FSR/E, contains nine units (212 pages) which
introduce trainees to various diagnostic steps in the FSR/E approach. Volume
one stresses, but is not limited to, initial diagnosis. Its units also detail
on-going, or continuous, diagnosis throughout the FSR/E process. Links
between social and biological science disciplines are stressed, as are
considerations of intra-household and socio-cultural issues. Supplementary
materials included in Volume one are (1) "Anatomy of On-Farm Trials: A Case
Study From Paraguay" and (2) Volume 1 and 2 of the Bibliography of Readings in
Farming Systems Research and Extension. (continued on backof page)

* Volume two, Techniques for Design and Analysis of On-Farm Experimentation,
contains six units (367 pages) which detail the farm trial design and analysis
process. A statistical analysis unit is included so that trainers do not need
to depend on outside materials in this critical area of trial design and
analysis. Volume two also contains three documents which support the units:
(1) On-Farm agronomic trials in farming systems research and extension, by
Pete E. Hildebrand and Federico Poey, (2) "On-Farm experimentation: A manual
of suggested experimental procedures", by CARDI (the Caribbean Agricultural
Research and Development Institute) staff, and (3) "Introduction to economic
analysis of on-farm experiments", a draft workbook by CIMMYT's Economics
Program.

* The set of FSR/E Training Units (two volumes and all supplementary
materials) is available for $175.00 U.S. prepaid (includes postage and
handling). The two volumes of FSR/E Training Units will be mailed out as a
complete set only. Each mailing will contain the two volumes and all support
documents. Each unit within each volume is complete with separate
instructions for trainers, and each includes text material written for
trainees, and hands-on training exercises. Each volume will be sent out in a
loose-leaf binder, to allow for ease of access and use, and to allow each
volume to be updated (with trainer's notes, etc.).

* The FSSP provides, and is continuing to develop, additional training
materials in order to expand the training resource base for FSR/E training.
Examples include slide-tape modules, detailed case studies, as well as
additional training units. As each volume of training units is used, we
encourage users to notify us of any adaptions, or new material developed by
the users so that this information can be included in future editions of the
training units.

* To order, please use the ORDER FORM provided.
