In this report, we discuss the findings of the first of four country studies on the provision of agricultural services by co-operatives, groups and other kinds of farmer-controlled enterprises. Group approaches are often encouraged by NGOs and some donors, and there is much to be gained by identifying factors which lead to their success. The objective of this research is to test certain hypotheses about: (a) the types of activity for which FCEs are most suitable; (b) the characteristics which are most often associated with success, and; (c) how FCEs should be promoted.
