The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

Indigenous Knowledge-Based Farming Practices: A Setting for the Contestation of Modernity, Development and Progress
This paper is concerned with the development of farming practices, which combine expressions of indigenous knowledge and Western knowledge. It explains how farmers in Zombwe Extension Planning Area, Malawi, rework their farming practices using indigenous and Western knowledge in a manner that meets their needs and aspirations while utilising available resources. Drawing on findings from field research, the paper explores how modernity, development and progress are contested terms, variously understood between farmers and agricultural experts.
