Summary:
In a time of great agricultural and rural change, the notion of 'multifunctionality' has remained under-theorized and poorly linked to the debates in the social sciences. This book analyses the extent to which the proposed transition towards post-productivist agriculture holds up to scientific scrutiny, and proposes a new transition theory.

In recent years, agriculture's role as an economic activity has been severely depleted and farmers are increasingly having to diversify from their traditional role as food producers by also providing non-commodity goods to society such as landscape, nature, employment, rural viability, animal welfare and so on. This causes major changes in farms systems and practices and such reorientation can be assisted by the skills of extension officers, sociologists and economists. This book brings together such experts to investigate what this

Multifunctional agriculture first received wide attention in 1998, when Japan, South Korea, and the European Union used the term to describe the multiple environmental and social benefits derived from agriculture. However, it is developing countries that have a comparative advantage in multifunctional agriculture, as it tends to be dominated by small-holder farming, low external inputs, ecologically sustainable production, family labour and in tune with local conditions. Recently, critical food security issues and rising food prices have brought the concepts of multifunctional
