Descripción
Developing alternative modernization pathways in sustainable agriculture requires a new knowledge base, which in turn is associated with an acknowledgment of the relevance of informal farmer knowledge. We use three case studies of organic and small-scale farming implemented in the international RETHINK research programme to explore farmer knowledge and learning practices and networks, their enabling and limiting factors and their (potential) contribution to a more sustainable and more resilient agriculture. The results show that most farmers studied use mixed knowledge sources, and, to a considerable extent, also informal knowledge and networks. These informal exchanges offer farmers not only verified, locally adapted knowledge and inspiration for innovations, but also strengthen their identities, communities, and professional and personal pride; they thus help to build social structures which contribute to advancing sustainable agriculture.
