Master's Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject Agrarian Studies, , course: Graduate studies, language: English, abstract: Ethiopia, one of the developing countries, is facing serious natural resource degradation problems. The main objective of this study was to examine the farmer's perceptions and adaptation to climate change through conservation agriculture. The data used for the study were collected from 142 farm households heads drawn from five kebeles. Primary data and secondary data were used. In addition to descriptive statistics, Heckman two stage sample selection model was employed to examine farmer's perceptions and adaptations of climate change. Farmers level of education, household nonfarm income, livestock ownership, extension on crop and livestock, households' credit accessibility, perception of increase in temperature and perception of decrease in precipitation significantly affect the adaptation to climate change. Similarly, farmers' perception of climate change was affected significantly by information on climate, farmer to farmer extension, local agro -ecology, number of relatives in development group and perception of change in duration of season. A binary logit model was employed for farmers' participation in conservation agriculture shows education level, number of active family labour and main employment of farmers were significant variables in determining participation in conservation agriculture

Attaining food security both at household and national level is the primary objective of all developing countries. Growing of consumer accepted high yielding crops is one of the solutions for those segments of the society that depend on agriculture for their livelihoods. To this end, maize is potentially the most productive cereal crop that prospects the industrialization of tropical countries. The use of high population densities for early maturing maize varieties under irrigated condition has recorded grain yields of up to 8.5 tons/ha which is much higher than that of the yield that is being obtained in the subsistence rain fed agriculture that is not more than 1.5 to 2 tons/ha. Thus, this technology would shed light to small farm households, commercial farmers, and agricultural extension workers who are interested to engage in irrigated agriculture using different water sources.

In terms of poverty gap, the highest value (i.e.0.472) was obtained in Subsistence Agriculture (SA) livelihoods strategy followed by Subsistence Agriculture combined with Off-farm (SAO) livelihoods strategy. Contrary to this, Semi-commercial Agriculture strategy and Semi-commercial agriculture combined with Off-farm activity (SCAO) found to have relatively low poverty gap value i.e. 0.206 and 0.198 respectively, the latter being the least of all. From this we can understand that the average consumption short fall needed to bring those households below poverty line in SCA and SCAO is 20.6% and 19.8% respectively. Whereas, the average amount of consumption necessary to fill the shortfall of the poor from the poverty line is 47.2% and 46.8% in Subsistence Agriculture and Subsistence Agriculture combined with Off-farm livelihoods strategy, respectively

In this book I present a Hypothesis that Evolution is a dual process: Ordinary Darwinian Evolution plus another process which forms part of my Hypothesis. This is based on a proposed new RNA. This book considers various unexplained observed phenomena associated with Darwinian evolution and presents a new Hypothesis through which these problems are analysed and possible solutions provided. My Hypothesis does not reject Darwinian evolution. In fact I stress the fact that Darwinian evolution is necessary in the creation of new species and I explain in more detail as to how this is achieved. My Hypothesis simply complements Darwinian evolution in trying to resolve the difficulties that are encountered in the further development of a species towards perfection and enhancement of its chances for survival.

Highlights and examines the growing convergence between the food and agricultural industries—the technological, environmental, and consumer-related drivers of this change, and the potential outcomes This is the first book of its kind to connect food and the food industry with agriculture, water resources, and water management in a detailed and thorough way. It brings together a small community of expert authors to address the future of the food industry, agriculture (both for plants and animals), and water—and its role in a world of increasing demands on resources. The book begins by highlighting the role of agriculture in today's food industry from a historical perspective—showing how it has grown over the years. It goes on to examine water management; new ways of plant breeding not only based on genetic modification pathways; and the attention between major crops (soy, corn, wheat) and so-called «orphan crops» (coffee, cocoa, tropical fruits). The book then turns towards the future of the food industry and analyzes major food trends, the new food, and «enough» food; discusses possible new business models for the future food industry; and analyzes the impact that the «internet of everything» will have on agriculture and the food industry. Finally, Megatrends in Food and Agriculture: Technology, Water Use and Nutrition offers scenarios about how agriculture, food, and the food industry might undergo some radical transformations. Assesses the evolution of food production and how we arrived at today's landscape Focuses on key areas of change, driven by both innovation and challenges such as new technologies, the demand for better nutrition, and the management of dwindling resources Highlights the role of better-informed consumers who demand transparency and accountability from producers Is written by industry insiders and academic experts Megatrends in Food and Agriculture: Technology, Water Use and Nutrition is an important resource for food and agriculture industry professionals, including scientists and technicians as well as decision makers, in management, marketing, sales, and regulatory areas, as well as related NGOs.

3373 руб.
The study of capital formation in a particular sector of an economy is crucial for assessing current and future prospects of its growth. The analysis of capital formation and investment in agriculture showed that after a steep rise in the seventies, the gross capital formation in agriculture in India, at constant prices showed a significant decline till the end of eighties, both in relative as well as absolute sense which was mainly induced by the absolute fall in public investment accompanied by stagnation in private investment. Besides confirming the complementarity of public and private investment in Indian agriculture, the present study observed that probably falling proportion of farm business investment is further the cause of sustained loss in profitability over the past. This trend together with increasing proportion of small and marginal operational holdings eroded the capacity of the farmers to invest in agriculture. The study also highlights the neglect of structural adjustment issues of the sector over the eighties and draws special attention to an urgent need to put in order conceptual and methodological framework for preparation of capital formation series.

co-author of (among others) Evolution in Four Dimensions "Nothing about the evolution of biological complexity makes sense except in the light of synergy." Peter Corning's new book is being hailed as a major contribution to what is perhaps the greatest shift in our understanding of evolution since The Origin of Species. It's a tour de force that takes us on a synergy-guided tour of the history of life. As Corning puts it, "life on Earth has been a synergistic phenomenon from the get go." Corning also shows how synergy has been a key to human evolution, including the rise of complex modern societies. "Cooperation may have been the vehicle, but synergy was the driver." As we now face a tipping point and another major transition in evolution, Corning offers us a synergy-based road-map to the future. "One of the great take-home lessons from the epic of evolution is that cooperation produces synergy, and synergy is the way forward. The arc of evolution bends toward synergy."

Agriculture continues to be an important sector fuelling economic growth. Rapidly changing climate is already affecting the production of food and feed, industrial crops, livestock, and seafood. In developing countries like India, agriculture and allied sectors contribute significantly to the gross domestic product. Therefore, evolving strategies to sustain a stable growth of the farming sector is essential for feeding a growing population and poverty alleviation in the face of global climate change. It is crucial to carry out a comprehensive analysis of different aspects of climate change to effectively combat its negative impacts on food production systems and landscapes and reap its potential benefits in agricultural production. Research findings and recommendations on topics as diverse as climate change impacts, genetic enhancement of crops, options for adaptation to climate change, opportunities and challenges for sustainable food production systems have been compiled in this volume. Capacity building for climate resilient agriculture and agriculture policy and planning is equally important to face future challenges. This book makes a compelling effort to address these major issues arising from climate change from an Indian perspective. The important and often conflicting issues in climate change impacts, adaptations and mitigations strategies are brought in to focus and a critical summary of the state-of-art in climate smart agriculture is presented for teachers, resear...

Pattern of temperature and precipitation are changing due to global warming. Impact of climate on agriculture has been a matter of concern for food security in India. Changes in temperature, precipitation, green gas emissions, droughts, sea level are likely to enhance the risk on agriculture. The impact of climate change on agriculture is being witnessed all over the world, but countries like India are more vulnerable in view of the huge population dependency on agriculture. Here, Agriculture sector supports the livelihood security to more than 60% population. Notwithstanding that, the crops like rice and wheat are the staple food for Indians. Monsoons are changing more frequently. Droughts, floods, tropical cyclones, hot extremes and heat waves are negatively impacting agriculture production. Increasing glacier melt in Himalayas will affect the food production. Impact of climate is more high compared to the past which increasing global warming, natural calamities and may result fluctuations on many crops. In this study, climate change and its impact on rice and wheat crops of India has been analyzed.

The agriculture arena in the tropics had a sea change with the introduction of green revolution technologies. Traditional crop varieties and farmer practices were replaced with high yielding and high input technologies. The rice-prawn integrated farming system prevalent in the tidal wetlands of tropics could withstand the windfall, as the traditional tall land races of rice and cultural practices alone were found suited to this unique farming system. The pokkali lands known after the renowned salt tolerant land race of rice: pokkali, are acclaimed for the unique way of reclamation and management of soil salinity and the rice-prawn farming system designed to suit to the seasonal changes in the field water quality. The present publication gives an account of the organic practices of reclamation of acid saline soils, varietal preference, salt tolerance mechanisms of the pokkali land races and the unique way of integrating rice, fish and prawn with the change in the climate and hydrographic parameters. This publication is useful to environmentalists, organic agricultural practitioners, students, extension workers and universities dealing with agriculture and allied areas.

The use of pesticides for pest management in agriculture is great concern due to negative impact on human health, wildlife and environment. Farmers are dependent on synthetic pesticides for controlling the pest in agriculture. IPM plays an important role for effective pest management that are safe for human health and environmentally viable. The different stakeholders' showed positive attitudes towards IPM technology in agriculture. IPM technologies such as sex pheromone trap, bio-control agent and botanical pesticides are socially acceptable and environmental friendly. Lack of farmers knowledge and awareness of consumers are main barrier for dissemination IPM technology. However, raw materials of botanical pesticides are available that can motivate the farmers for adoption of IPM technology.

China’s Peaceful Evolution describes the impact on U.S.-China relations and relations between the two Chinas of the political policy of “Peaceful Evolution”. While Taiwan and mainland China view the huge Eastern European success of the US implementation of Peaceful Evolution in different ways, their foreign policy responses have been deeply influenced by one man: Zhang Zhen-bang.As head of the mainland China section of the [Taiwan] Bureau of Military Intelligence, Zhang was Taiwan’s foremost authority on Chinese Communism. He has enjoyed unparalleled access to information on both the PRC and Taiwan which remains unavailable to outsiders and his observations, analyses, and interpretations have directly molded Taiwan’s policy toward the Mainland and, across the Straits, China’s policy toward Taiwan.This book describes and analyses the historical background and political development of Peaceful Evolution in Asia.

Michael Mayerfeld Bell Farming for Us All. Practical Agriculture & the Cultivation of Sustainability

6602 руб.
It is easy to feel overwhelmed and depressed by all the threats facing modern agriculture-threats to the environment, to the health and safety of our food, to the economic and cultural viability of farmers and rural communities. Hundreds of thousands of farmers leave their farms every year as the juggernaut of "big agriculture" plows across our rural landscape. But there are viable alternatives to big agriculture, as many farmers and others involved in agriculture, including consumers, are discovering. In Farming for Us All Michael Mayerfeld Bell offers crucial insight into the future of a viable sustainable agriculture movement in the United States. Based on interviews and years of close interaction with over 60 Iowa farm families, Bell answers two critical questions concerning sustainable agriculture: why some farmers are becoming sustainable farmers and why, as yet, most are not. The first part of the book describes how the structure of agriculture-that nexus of markets, regulations, subsidies, and technology-has created a situation in which farmers are paid to undermine their own economic and social security, as well as the security of the land. The second part explores why, nevertheless, most Iowa farmers carry on with these destructive practices. Farming is a pressured endeavor, and farmers find themselves relying on recipes of knowledge to get them through the latest crisis, with little opportunity to explore some other way-even if they think what they know how...

Master's Thesis from the year 2009 in the subject Agrarian Studies, grade: 3.5, Makerere University (College of Agriculture & Environmental Sciences), course: Master of Science in Agribusiness Management, language: English, abstract: It is crucial that formulation of market enhancing policies to improve performance hinges on a better understanding of the local market functioning. Comprehensive market performance is better understood by studying the extent of spatial market integration which in turn is affected by communication factors like telephony growth and extension services within the marketing system. Extension services are important in influencing levels of production and dissemination of trade information of both the inputs to and output from the enterprise. Unfortunately very little was known about how rice price transmission takes place. Given the importance of rice (as a food security crop & source of income) to the rural poor, many organizations have promoted it among rural farmers for improving their welfare, it was imperative that its price movements is studied to inform policy makers & implementers on the status of its spatial market integration. The primary objective of this study was to evaluate the spatial market integration of rice markets under improving communication infrastructure particularly extension services (NAADS program) and telecommunication industry growth. This study specifically evaluated the degree of spatial market integratio...

Seminar paper from the year 2016 in the subject Sociology - Children and Youth, , course: Development Studies, language: English, abstract: The population of Kenya is a youthful one comprising about 78.31% aged below 34 years. Youth, however, has been declining to engage in agriculture. Notable is that agriculture is the main economic activity of Kenya. The sector has been recording a poor performance in the recent years and the continuous decline of youth engaging in agriculture may lead to a further setback. The effect will be a strain to the achievements of set government goals towards economic growth and development. Therefore, this study sought to assess challenges affecting youth engagement in agriculture in Kiambu County. Specifically, the study sought to find out; to what extent knowledge, land, attitude and credit affect youth's engagement in agriculture. The study was conducted in Limuru Sub County because of the issue of high land fragmentation. The study adopted a survey research design that was cross sectional in nature. It targeted a population of 10,633 youth. The researcher used proportionate sampling to sample 300 youths from the peri-urban population of the constituency. A semi structured questionnaire was administered to both female and male research subjects. Thereafter, quantitative data was analyzed using Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) computer software version 11.5. The data was presented in form of frequencies, means, pie chart bar g...

Henri-Louis Bergson, Arthur Mitchell Creative Evolution

1189 руб.
Creative Evolution was published in 1907, and translated into English in 1911. In it, Henri Bergson proposes a version of orthogenesis in place of Charles Darwin's mechanism of evolution, suggesting that evolution is motivated by an élan vital, a "vital impetus," that can also be understood as humanity’s natural creative impulse.In Creative Evolution, Bergson also developed concepts of time which significantly influenced modernist writers and thinkers such as Marcel Proust and Thomas Mann. For example, his term "duration" refers to a more individual, subjective experience of time, as opposed to mathematical, objectively measurable "clock time." He suggests that the experience of time as "duration" can best be understood through intuition.Discussing the meaning of life, Bergson considers the order of nature and the form of intelligence, including the geometrical tendency of the intellect, and examines mechanisms of thought and illusion. In addition, he presents a critique of the idea of immutability and the concept of nothingness, from Plato and Aristotle through the evolutionism of his contemporaries.French philosopher Henri-Louis Bergson (1859–1941) was influential in the tradition of continental philosophy, especially during the first half of the 20th century until the Second World War. Bergson is known for his arguments that processes of immediate experience and intuition are more significant than abstract rationalism and science for und...

Evolution theory advocates have convinced our society that evolution is a scientific fact. However, no reasonable person disputes the fact that living organisms eventually die. In contrast, evolution teaches that lifeless material spontaneously produced life, and then systematically developed ever-greater capabilities. This book strikes at the heart of evolution theory by exposing fraud in evolution science; it also shows how even the simplest cells are too complex to have ever evolved.

The agriculture sector in many developing countries in Asia, especially in Pakistan, is very important because agriculture is the most effective and only viable sector to generate economic growth and to feed 170 million populations. However, the agricultural extension services in Pakistan have not been very effective due to unavailability of agricultural information at proper time. This study was judged among socio-economic characteristics of the respondents and the different mass media utilized by the respondents. To accomplish this study simple random sampling technique was used in selecting 120 farmers. Questionnaires/interview schedules were administered to respondents for obtaining the required information. Percentages, frequencies, chi square and regression analysis were used to analyze the data. The results exposed that a simple majority 54.1 percent of the respondents gave 1st preference to TV, 25.0 percent gave 2nd preference to radio and 16.7 percent gave 3rd preference to print media in obtaining the agricultural. As effectiveness of mass media in dissemination of agricultural information, the respondents ranked TV as 1st, radio as 2nd, and print media as 3rd.

Document from the year 2017 in the subject Business economics - General, grade: 9, , language: English, abstract: Currently in India we are observing that the number of labours are shifting from agriculture sector to other sectors of economy. The labour transition occurs due to several reasons one of the main reason is that the fixed wage rate in other sectors as compared to agriculture sector. In this context the Lewis model provides a good framework for explaining the ways in which the fruits of economic development are spread. Lewis divided developing economy into two sectors: subsistence and capital sector. He assumed that the subsistence sector was characterised by surplus labour and low real wages whereas capital sector characterised by capital intensive production and higher real wages. If we transfer excess labour from agriculture to capital sector it will not affect the production and productivity of subsistence sector and it will increase the production in capital sector which will help in development of economy. Lewis' model is mainly applicable surplus labour countries. If we take the example of China, Africa, Cambodia and Vietnam which have evidenced the Lewis model we can compare the India with those countries .China, Africa, Cambodia and Vietnam were gone through enormous labour transition which helped in the development of economy of the respective countries. Migration of workforce in India characterised by a shift of predominant share of agriculture to ma...

Document from the year 2015 in the subject Instructor Plans: Agriculture / Forestry / Gardening, , language: English, abstract: Teachers engaged in higher education in general and those in agricultural universities in particular have to shoulder multifarious responsibilities as research, extension and managementin addition to teaching. This results into diversifying their attention and energy refraining them from fully focussing on teaching. Secondly, college teachers in general rely on their knowledge of subject matter of their field of specialization alone for effective teaching. It is so because of giving blind eye to pedagogical methods and their importance in making teaching effective. The fact 'how' something is said is equally important as 'what' is said, is ignored.Therefore, for avoiding the defeat of a teacher such training as this one on instructional technology are of immense importance.

The objectives of this study were to identify the extension needs of land reform beneficiaries (A1 and A2 farmers) for sustainable land reform,by describing and analyzing the current extension corporation and activities in newly resettled areas. It was carried out in three districts, namely Kadoma, Chegutu and Zvimba,situated in Mashonaland West province of Zimbabwe. The target population samples for the study comprised of A1 and A2 farmers (N=690) and the extension personnel in the three districts (N=68). According to farmers (A1 and A2) the major constraints preventing them to farm optimally are: frequent droughts, inadequate financial credit, poor availability of production inputs, poor extension services, poor farming knowledge and no farming equipment. Proper selection of the land reform beneficiaries and human capital development is a critical component of a sustainable extension system. There is a need of greater participation of private role players in providing of inputs. For this to happen government should allow a free market system.Due to difference in socio-economic status between A1 and A2 farmers, a tailor made extension support system needs to be implemented.

2652 руб.
Master's Thesis from the year 2007 in the subject Tourism, grade: 2,2, University of Applied Sciences Eberswalde, 200 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Tourism has been acknowledged by practitioners and governments to be a tool for economic development, not exclusively but mainly, of less developed countries with few other competitive sectors and, therefore, for boosting their domestic economy as well as reducing the endemic poverty in Africa.This paradigm is difficult to apply when the tourism industry is not viable in a country and the great majority of tourism establishments have insufficient numbers of clients to make profit. In this respect, some findings indicate that, tourism and local small-scale agriculture (World Bank, 2006b) have been widely neglected by the Government of Sierra Leone, all efforts having been directed onto the development of the mining sector. In fact, while production and marketing constraints can be solved as stated in the wider agriculture literature, due to the nature of Sierra Leone as a "fragile state", findings suggest that the lack of commitment and attitude of the Government to more responsible tourism forms or approaches will hamper any attempt to foster strategic alliances between the poor agriculture sector and tourism industry or other lucrative market-segments. Although the recent tourism development in Sierra Leone addresses the important issue of preserving the few available tourist attractions, a...

Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Cologne, course: Between Chance and Adaptation. Reverberations of the Theory of Evolution in Ethnology, Literature and History, 19 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Classic evolutionary theory always looks backwards. Darwin, his predecessors and successors put forward their theories by comparing present organic records with those of the past. Indeed some ideas of social evolution are imbued with a certain kind of perspective into the future, believing in an ongoing progression of human societies. Still, in order to prove the accuracy of those ideas, one had to rely on evidence taken from history or from cultures which were believed to be primitive and thus representing former states of societies. Science fiction's view goes quite in the opposite direction: Here, the present marks the point of view from where we look into the future of society, the future of mankind. The following paper examines the notions of evolution we can find in William Gibson's work. I will try to deal with the question how we can perceive an evolution of the human race in his novels and what other ideas of evolution Gibson incorporates into his work. Starting off with the query whether there is to find any sort of biological evolution in Gibson's work, the second chapter will deal with the picture of nature Gibson draws. How does he describe nature (meaning organi...

Highlights and examines the growing convergence between the food and agricultural industries—the technological, environmental, and consumer-related drivers of this change, and the potential outcomes This is the first book of its kind to connect food and the food industry with agriculture, water resources, and water management in a detailed and thorough way. It brings together a small community of expert authors to address the future of the food industry, agriculture (both for plants and animals), and water—and its role in a world of increasing demands on resources. The book begins by highlighting the role of agriculture in today's food industry from a historical perspective—showing how it has grown over the years. It goes on to examine water management; new ways of plant breeding not only based on genetic modification pathways; and the attention between major crops (soy, corn, wheat) and so-called «orphan crops» (coffee, cocoa, tropical fruits). The book then turns towards the future of the food industry and analyzes major food trends, the new food, and «enough» food; discusses possible new business models for the future food industry; and analyzes the impact that the «internet of everything» will have on agriculture and the food industry. Finally, Megatrends in Food and Agriculture: Technology, Water Use and Nutrition offers scenarios about how agriculture, food, and the food industry might undergo some radical transformations. Assesses the evolution of food production and how we arrived at today's landscape Focuses on key areas of change, driven by both innovation and challenges such as new technologies, the demand for better nutrition, and the management of dwindling resources Highlights the role of better-informed consumers who demand transparency and accountability from producers Is written by industry insiders and academic experts Megatrends in Food and Agriculture: Technology, Water Use and Nutrition is an important resource for food and agriculture industry professionals, including scientists and technicians as well as decision makers, in management, marketing, sales, and regulatory areas, as well as related NGOs.
