This book examines the contributions and limitations of low external input technology (LEIT) for addressing the needs of resource-poor farmers. For the first time a balanced analysis of LEIT is provided, making sense of the debates, giving an extensive review of the literature and offering practical suggestions about the management and integration of low external input agriculture in rural development programmes.
