Resumo:  Effective agricultural technology uptake depends on a continuum of knowledge within the rural community. Involving government officials, research and extension personnel, producers and consumers in the process of technology development, adaptation and evaluation is often a frustrating and slow process but it pays long-term dividends, particularly in developing countries. This paper discusses the process through which the Cambodia-IRRI-Australia Project involved its major donor, government officials, international and local institutions, non-government organizations, traders and farmers in developing technologies for rice-based farming systems in Cambodia. This successful approach re-established Cambodia as a rice-exporting nation after suffering 25 years of grain shortages. New technology is estimated to add $2.4 billion Australian to the income of rice farmers over a 30-year evaluation period.
