During Phase 1 and Phase II, strong progress was achieved through science-based, quantitative tools and participatory methods that

  1. Generated evidence of increased profitability for smallholder farmers through an integrated and adaptive research approach to crop and natural resource management

  3. Reduced rice yield gaps in lowland rice cropping systems by combining outputs from (1) and (2), and

  4. Involved the formal development of Learning Alliances (LA)
