Documenting farmer innovation creates a new image of agricultural producers. In the paper "communicating farmers' knowledge", Awa Faly Ba of IIED Afrique in Senegal, the NGO that support PROFEIS activities in West Africa, explains how PROFES and AGRIDAPE - the Frnech magazine on low-external-input and sustainable agriculture (LEISA) - have collaborated to create and share important messages about local creativity in improving smallholder agriculture.
