This article is informed by many years’ work as a consultant for the UK Department for International Development (DFID) with the Indo-British Rainfed Farming Project (IBRFP), and by work supported by a DFID Social Development research grant. The ethnographic data upon which this argument is based are found in my Cultivating Development(Mosse, 2004). The views expressed here are my own and do not reflect those of DFID, ‘KBCL’ or the IBRFP project. Nonetheless I am grateful to all in the project who have given me ideas and critical feedback over the years, for comments received at seminars at SOAS, Berkeley, Wageningen, DFID and the World Bank, and from two anonymous referees, and to Ingie Hovland for her critical reading of an earlier draft.
