    By focusing on the free use and dissemination of Brachiaria decumbens in dual-purpose farms in Caquetá, Colombia, it was hoped to generate and disseminate other pasture germplasm. The existing technology, using B. decumbens, has certain restrictions that must be overcome with appropriate research and development activities. The document analyzes the role of improved-pasture technology in regional development, and gives a general description of Caquetá`s piedmont ecosystem. The characteristics of the dual-purpose system and implications of research results are also discussed.

    Anthropological work carried out by the PROFRIZA project in Cusco over 2 cropping seasons, between 1988-90, are reported. The status of bean cultivation in the region was assessed, as well as the experience acquired in seed production, small farmer management of farming activities, and the integration of farming communities that have old ways of exchanging products and services. Appropriate technology to promote crop improvement was identified, and crop management aimed at achieving good results on just one field, instead of several fields, and perhaps with low yields.
