Micro-farming situation is a relatively homogeneous farming situation conceptualised by the farmers themselves on the basis of certain agro-ecological and socio-economic criteria. These criteria are more holistic in its coverage than those used during identifying conventional recommendation domains. The article outlines the rationale of observing a micro-farming situation, proposes a method to carry on such exercises and points to certain areas of further research. Not only technology positioning, but also a methodological insight can be developed from such exercises. With some modifications this can be used as a participatory research tool during the study of farming systems, especially in the resource-poor CRD agriculture.
