Examples of LEIT and Farmer-Focused Development Strategies

ByRobert Tripp

The purpose of this chapter is to review some of the major examples of low external-input technology (LEIT) and to outline the techniques most often used to promote this type of technology. The discussion will not be comprehensive, either in its examination of technologies or in its description of extension approaches. The objective is simply to ensure that the concept of LEIT is sufficiently well illustrated so that there is a clear basis for the analysis in the remainder of the book.
