AFSRE, the International Association for Farming Systems Research and Extension, is an international non-profitmaking association with its Head Office in the Philippines. It comprises research workers and independent producers as well as regional associations and networks engaged in research and development for agricultural production systems throughout the world. Its prime function is to develop and aid the work of an ever-increasing number of associations and regional production system networks. This multi-national, multi-disciplinarv journal publicizes the results of research and extension work relating to farming systems and deals more generally with methodology and other subjects of interest to producers and trainers in production systems as well as to research workers, administrators and decision-makers in agricultural research and development. The News Sheet, which is produced at least twice a year, publicizes information on current events and announcements of regional and international meetings, new publications and work relating to the research system. It is circulated to all individual members and to national institutions and networks for subsequent reproduction and distribution to their members. Records and literature Since 1980 AFSRE has been managing, in association with the University of Kansas City, all its publications and literature and providing a unique timetable of research system activities throughout the world. These papers are available on request to research workers, producers and students and government or private agencies and organizations. AFSRE and its services are funded by contributions from its members and contributions from, or sponsorship by, regional associations and networks.
