In Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda, Karen Brock of Green Ink and Rachel Owino of icipe, under the direction of Prof. Zeyaur Khan and with the support of the push–pull team, carried out the From Lab to Land interviews and took the photographs.

In the UK, supported by other members of the Green Ink team, Karen Brock wrote the report and Christel Chater designed and laid it out. Dedication We respectfully dedicate this report to all the scientists, extensionists and farmers who gave their time to talk to us and share their thoughts, and to all the other women like them who dedicate parts of their lives to making agriculture more sustainable. icipe
