Agricultural scientists of various cadres were trained in analytic hierarchy process (AHP); later in interdisciplinary groups they prioritized the research interventions for solving the problem as given to them through a ‘participatory case study’ of a village. This case study is the abstracted draft report of the two agro-ecosystem field studies separately conducted by International Center for development oriented Research in Agriculture (ICRA), The Netherlands and National Academy of Agricultural Research Management (NAARM) in collaboration with Indian Grassland & Fodder Research Institute (IGFRI), a locally situated institution. First on is divergent and broad study of complete region, and second one is convergent and specific constraint-opportunity analysis of a village in zone-3 of ICRA study. The paper describes perceptions of off-site and on-site scientists of various cadres towards AHP, its application and analysis of prioritized group decisions.
