A small but growing percentage of farmers are farming with no synthetic chemicals, and many others are reducing their overall chemical use. Agriculture research has begun to focus on ways of maintaining environmental quality while producing acceptable crop yields.In Africa there is an estimated 1 extension worker per 4, farmers, compared with 1 per hundred farmers in developed countries.
