    Adapting the Innovation Systems Approach to Agricultural Development in Vietnam: Challenges to the Public Extension Service. [REVIEW]Rupert Friederichsen, Thai Thi Minh, Andreas Neef & Volker Hoffmann - 2013 - Agriculture and Human Values 30 (4):555-568.
    Competing models of innovation informing agricultural extension, such as transfer of technology, participatory extension and technology development, and innovation systems have been proposed over the last decades. These approaches are often presented as antagonistic or even mutually exclusive. This article shows how practitioners in a rural innovation system draw on different aspects of all three models, while creating a distinct local practice and discourse. We revisit and deepen the critique of Vietnam’s “model” approach to upland rural development, voiced a decade (...)

    Can Public GAP Standards Reduce Agricultural Pesticide Use? The Case of Fruit and Vegetable Farming in Northern Thailand.Pepijn Schreinemachers, Iven Schad, Prasnee Tipraqsa, Pakakrong M. Williams, Andreas Neef, Suthathip Riwthong, Walaya Sangchan & Christian Grovermann - 2012 - Agriculture and Human Values 29 (4):519-529.
    In response to the chronic overuse and misuse of pesticides in agriculture, governments in Southeast Asia have sought to improve food safety by introducing public standards of good agricultural practices (GAP). Using quantitative farm-level data from an intensive horticultural production system in northern Thailand, we test if fruit and vegetable producers who follow the public GAP standard use fewer and less hazardous pesticides than producers who do not adhere to the standard. The results show that this is not the case. (...)

    The Politics and Ethics of Land Concessions in Rural Cambodia.Andreas Neef, Siphat Touch & Jamaree Chiengthong - 2013 - Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 26 (6):1085-1103.
    In rural Cambodia the rampant allocation of state land to political elites and foreign investors in the form of “Economic Land Concessions (ELCs)”—estimated to cover an area equivalent to more than 50 % of the country’s arable land—has been associated with encroachment on farmland, community forests and indigenous territories and has contributed to a rapid increase of rural landlessness. By contrast, less than 7,000 ha of land have been allotted to land-poor and landless farmers under the pilot project for “Social (...)

    Stakeholder Participation in Agricultural Research Projects: A Conceptual Framework for Reflection and Decision-Making. [REVIEW]Andreas Neef & Dieter Neubert - 2011 - Agriculture and Human Values 28 (2):179-194.
    Recent discourse in the field of participatory agricultural research has focused on how to blend various forms and intensities of stakeholder participation with quality agricultural science, moving beyond the simple “farmer-first” ideology of the 1980s and early 1990s. Yet, most existing frameworks of participation in agricultural research still adhere to a linear typology of participatory research with an inherent claim of “the more participation, the better.” In this article, we propose a new framework that looks at participatory research elements along (...)
