ProQuest powers research in academic, corporate, government, public and school libraries around the world with unique content, including rich academic databases, and technologies that connect people with information, simply and precisely. Water, energy, and biodiversity are essential components for building a sustainable food system in a developing country like Nepal. Green Revolution technologies and the package of practices largely ignored the role of ecosystem services, leaving a large population of small farmers’ food- and nutrition-insecure. Biodiversity, especially, agrobiodiversity is in decline and this vital.
The number of farmers’ markets in operation has more than quadrupled since , from 1, to 7, Farmers’ market access may be associated with increased fruit and vegetable consumption (8–10). Additionally, farmers’ markets are good sources for locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables in urban and low-income settings (11–13). This study examines responses of produce consumers in San Luis Obispo County, California, to compare the profile of farmersÂ’' market shoppers to those who do not shop at farmers'Â’ markets.
scale farmers, issuing credit mainly in the form of short-term (seasonal) loans (see Table 1). Commercial farmers, who are mostly interested in medium - to long - term loans, obtain their credit. dynamic issue for farmers, extension services, agri-business and policy-makers. The agricultural sector needs to employ a wide range of evolving technologies and farm practices across many different farming systems and structures to meet a variety of changing and heterogeneous demands from consumers and the public for food, fibre and.

A study conducted among Thai farmers revealed that about % of participants had positive attitudes. Of significant interest in the current study, only a small proportion (%) of farmers used the empty containers of pesticides for storage of food items in the by: Against a background of steadily mounting cereal surpluses in the European Community and a recognition that the cereals sector is a major contributor to the Community's budgetary problems, a survey was carried out of English farmers' attitudes and preferences concerning a range of alternative cereal supply policy by: 2.
However, little is known about what drives adoption of ICM among farmers. The purpose of this study was to analyze the intention and behavior of cereal farmers towards ICM practices, exploiting the theory of planned behavior (TPB) and information from a survey of cereal farmers in Pars-Abad County of Ardabil Province in northwestern by: 4.
Building upon a body of attitudinal evidence that, for the arable sector, has captured attitudes towards straw production, straw incorporation/on-farm use or sale, and willingness to consider growing energy crops (Glithero et al., a, Glithero et al., b, Glithero et al., c), a telephone survey was undertaken to capture data on livestock farmers’ attitudes towards DEC production Cited by: A detailed retrospective of the Green Revolution, its achievement and limits in terms of agricultural productivity improvement, and its broader impact at social, environmental, and economic levels is provided.
Lessons learned and the strategic insights are reviewed as the world is preparing a “redux” version of the Green Revolution with more integrative environmental and social impact Cited by: pervasive in farmers’ fields, meeting the projected increase demand for maize grain in Africa presents a challenge.
Sorghum is the second most important cereal after maize with 22% of total cereal area, followed by millets (pearl and finger) with 19% of the total cereal land coverage. The. However, farmers’ attitudes towards straw removal or incorporation are potentially well-founded with respect to the perceived benefits of straw incorporation in maintaining soil quality, nutrient retention and providing timeliness of crop establishment to ensure both immediate and long term.
In the short term, the priority is to rehabilitate,re-equip and modernise irrigation and drainage systems. In the long term, if technically feasible, priority should be given to sub-dividing larger schemes into smaller units, to make it easier for scheme farmers to take over their management.
CEREAL-ROOT CROP MIXED FARMING SYSTEM. Farmers have been characterized as people whose ties to the land have given them a deep awareness of natural cycles, appreciation for natural beauty and sense of responsibility as stewards. At the same time, their relationship to the land has been characterized as more utilitarian than that of others who are less directly dependent on its bounty.

Cereal farming, growing of cereal crops for human food and livestock feed as well as for other uses, including industrial starch and biofuel. Cereals, or grains, are members of the grass family cultivated primarily for their starchy dry fruits.
Wheat, rice, corn (maize), rye, oats, barley, sorghum, and some of the millets are common cereals. The most highly correlated attitudinal variable with profit was the respondents' own assessments of whether increasing turnover is essential for long-term success.
Many of the study farmers appeared to have a negative view of continuing personal development. Several variables indicative of this view were also strongly correlated with profitability. Ethiopian Economic Policy Research Institute, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
We have used an extensive data set from Ethiopia to study the country's existing land tenure system from the perspective of farmers and to assess the impacts that this system currently has on agricultural development and implications for poverty reduction at large.
Or in the stark words of a long-term inmate interviewed for research published in the s, after years in prison “you ain’t the same”. Reintegration into society can be difficult after a. A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text.
A distinction was made between coping and adaptation, as short-term responses to shocks and long-term responses to stressors, respectively. Binary logistic regression modeling was used based on a. The long term prospects, however, are worse, as the example of the Sarapiqui suggests.
Our alternative, the "political ecology strategy,' emphasizes the land and people between the islands of protected forest and has greater credibility because of its willingness to see some of the interconnections in this complicated system.
1 Increase growth. We compete in attractive and growing categories. We have a global footprint with presence in countries. Our portfolio includes more than brands, from global icons such as Nescafé to local favorites like Bear these, 34 brands generate over CHF 1 billion each in annual sales at retail level.
We continue to actively manage our portfolio and prioritize our. Farm viability poses a grave challenge to the sustainability of agriculture and food systems: the number of acres in production continues to decline as the majority of farms earn negative net income.
Two related and often overlapping marketing strategies, (i) locally grown foods and (ii) distribution at farmers markets, can directly enhance food system sustainability by improving farm. As part of a long term study of the possible health effects from such exposure, a survey was carried out to establish the extent of pesticide use within the cereal farming community of Western Australia.
Of the 9, properties surveyed, 2, responses were received which represents a % response rate.

It is widely believed that the sustainability of food crop production could be enhanced by improved retention of crop residues and by the adoption of more diverse crop rotations that include nitrogen-fixing legumes (Mclntosh et al., ).ADVERTISEMENTS: The following points will highlight the seven major problems of Indian agriculture.
Problem # 1. Instability: Agriculture in India is largely depends on monsoon. As a result, production of food-grains fluctuates year after year. A year of abundant output of cereals is often followed by a year of acute shortage.
This, in its turn, [ ].
