Farming households are also linked to rural communities and social and information networks, and these factors provide feedback that influences farmer decision-making.

It does however depict key components that lead to better soil fertility management. Cultivation integgated legumes is essential for the regeneration of nutrient-deficient soils.

However, organic inputs integrater at low rates commonly used by smallholder farmers in Africa seldom release sufficient nutrients for optimum crop yield. The ISFM definition proposes that application of fertiliser to improved germplasm on responsive soils will boost crop yield and improve the agronomic efficiency relative to current farmer practice, characterised by traditional varieties receiving too little and insufficiently managed nutrient inputs Step A — blue line, Figure 2.
