A wide variety of training activites has been carried out related to farming systems research (FSR). The majority have had one or more of the following objectives: to introduce the farming systems perspective, to teach new research methods, and to promote the institutionalization of FSR. Many of these objectives are important, but FSR training is not usefully seen as a separate field of endeavour. The goals of FSR training will be better served by reconsidering the roles of universities, national research institutions, and international institutions.
