IFOAM Training Manual for Organic Agriculture in the Tropics - Download (EN)
The Training Manual was developed to improve the quality and the availability of didactic material on organic agriculture in tropical countries. It offers a resource basis for trainers with the idea of encouraging individual adaptation and further development of the material according to the needs. The Training Manual can be used as a guide and source book to implement training programmes. It will help develop the structure of a training course or workshop and provide material and ideas for its organisation. The Manual can also serve as a handbook for those who want to get a more clear and complete idea on the basics of organic farming.
The Training Manual shall be a living document, modified and further developed by those who use it.
Includes the chapters:
