1 Early days For me, FSR-E started with multidisciplinary research as soon as I started my professional career as an agricultural economist. At the Range Management Department of Texas A & M University back in 1959, I worked very closely with plant and other biological scientists. Moving to Colorado State University in 1961, I was part of a joint project with the Agronomy Department, alongside William Schmehl of the Shaner et al. 1982 publication on Farming Systems1. This groundwork was reinforced by my first overseas assignment from FSR: Origins and Perspectives 1964 to 1967 with an engineering firm, working for the West Pakistan Water and Power Development Authority in Lahore.
