CIFOR–ICRAF publishes over 750 publications every year on agroforestry, forests and climate change, landscape restoration, rights, forest policy and much more – in multiple languages.

CIFOR–ICRAF addresses local challenges and opportunities while providing solutions to global problems for forests, landscapes, people and the planet.

We deliver actionable evidence and solutions to transform how land is used and how food is produced: conserving and restoring ecosystems, responding to the global climate, malnutrition, biodiversity and desertification crises. In short, improving people’s lives.

Methods for extrapolation of cropping systems technologies

Export citation

Agricultural environments in the humid and sub-humid tropics have very high spatial complexity. Efforts to classify this variability into homogeneous ecological units to facilitate the transfer of technologies across geographical areas encounter serious constraints. It is not difficult to identify mappable criteria that will separate farm areas into distinct units. However it is challenging to specify the relevant criteria that influence the adaptation of particular technologies and to use the spatial data that is available to make efficient extrapolation judgements. This activity is often constrained by limited data and insufficient knowledge of how the data can be used.
