Q1. The central question Tesco should evaluate is “ what are the gains and losses associated with introducing or not introducing the virtual store” The answer is brought about by analyzing internal and external influences on the company’s actions. Starting off with the internal influences, Tesco should outline the purpose of launching the virtual store concept. Whether it’s used as a promotional tool or a strategy to increase online sales makes a difference. Promoting Tesco may increase sales in existing supermarkets and attract new customers.
The agriculture sector in Ethiopia plays pivotal roles in economic growth, poverty alleviation, employment creation, foreign exchange earnings and food security. Despite the enormous contribution over the past years, its significance is limited because of various factors and hence it is becoming increasingly difficult to meet the food requirements of the growing population (Jon, 2007; Abera, 2011; UNDP, 2013). One of the significant contributors for its deprived performance is the low productivity of the sector in general and cereal production in particular over the past years (Alemayehu, 2009; Alemayehu et al. 2012). Such low productivity leads to increasing poverty and food insecurity of rural poor farm households in the country.

It’s no surprise that B2B bartering takes place more widely and frequently during periods of general economic malaise (such as a recession). You’re more likely to find a barter partner when the going is tough for everyone. Barter is also deployed by businesses to keep their inventories in manageable shape. This applies particularly to enterprises which deal in perishable goods. When there is an accumulation of stock that could go bad in a short while, sellers may be keen to give them to businesses that might have an urgent need for them; it’ll be a good bargain to get something in return, instead of letting all the perishable produce go to waste.
This further puts a financial burden of rural communities who see their agricultural activities slowly disappear in favor of cheaper imports from China, South America or the like. As s result, rural economies are often very fragile and lack the robustness of the industrialized urban
Milk is transported to towns on foot, on donkey and horseback or by public transport, and commands a higher price there than when sold in the neighborhood, to cover transport costs. Dairy production is insufficient to meet demand in most parts of Ethiopia: consumers report that low availability of dairy products is a major reason for not consuming dairy products (Asfaw, et. al. 2011, pp 32-43). A study by Negassa (2009, pp 48-56) in the Arsi zone shows that about 72, 62, 43, and 38 percent of consumers surveyed indicated that their current monthly levels of consumption of fluid milk, edible butter, cheese, and cosmetic butter (used for hair care) respectively are insufficient.
Drought lands landed farmers Poor By R. Jannathul Firdouse The essential need for human to live in earth is oxygen, water and food. India is the country which has Agriculture as its primary sector.

Among the causes of rural poverty are a decline in the productivity and profitability of farming, smaller farm sizes and unsustainable practices that have led to deforestation and depleted fishing waters. Rural areas lag behind in economic growth and they have higher underemployment. This is partly because poor people have little access to productive assets and business opportunities. They have few non-farm income-generating activities, and people lack access to microfinance services and affordable credit. Some vulnerable groups also face specific problems.
Kijima (2011) showed that about 50% of farmers who adopted the high yielding rice variety (NERICA) in Uganda in 2002 abandoned the variety within the first two years. Using a panel survey of 347 households, Kijima pointed to the relatively low profitability of rice in comparison to other agricultural products, distances to rice milling centres, and consequently higher costs of marketing as the reasons for the high dis-adoption rates. On the other hand, Sserunkuuma (2005), based on a survey of 450 households, examined the reasons for low adoption of maize varieties in Uganda and found that participation in agricultural extension programmes was a key determinant of adoption of maize varieties.
