Scripts and stories about farmer knowledge and innovation

Theme pack

Here is our latest monthly theme pack of FRI resources, this month about farmer knowledge and innovation. The items in this pack demonstrate that farmers are not dependent on external experts, that they have a wealth of knowledge and, through experience and experimentation, are constantly innovating and refining agricultural practices.

The theme pack includes sixteen scripts from Resource Packs and eleven Farmer stories from Barza Wire.

Resources available in Swahili


We hope that this kind of “one-stop shop” on selected topics is useful, and that you can use the resources in this month’s theme pack to make effective programming on farmer knowledge and innovation.

Please note that three of the older scripts were written when FRI was known as DCFRN, or the Developing Countries Farm Radio Network.

This theme pack was prepared with the support of The McLean Foundation.
