A post-academic course for young agricultural scientists working in developing countries has been organized by ICRA. Its aim is to prepare them for applying their specialized training to research designed to produce results appropriate to the circumstances of farmers and which are compatible with the broader aims of aovernments. The ICRA training will provide participants with the necessary~background knowledge and awareness of opportunities for and constraints to change in agriculture and enable them to use this knowledge in their own research programmes. The course combines theoretical training in Wageningen with a three month field study in a developing country. This provides participants with a case study of the processes at work in agricultural development and gives them the opportunity to make an interdisciplinary study of farmers' production systems with a view to identifying priorities for agricultural research The sixth course is scheduled to begin on 19 January 1987 and will continue until 14 August 1987. Applications should be made to the Director of Studies. ICRA. PO Box 88. 6700 Wageningen, The Netherlands.
