This popular grain is used in human food and livestock feeds all over the world. In Asia, wheat is used in noodles and bread. While in the Middle East, wheat is used in flatbread, couscous, and matzah. The uses of wheat vary all around the world which we have seen demonstrated above. Finally, Low-grade wheat can be used by industry to make adhesives, paper additives, and aid in the production of
Acacia macracantha is a tropical legume that grows in semi-arid areas of Venezuela and is consumed by grazing goats, using its foliage and mature pods, which can be up to 13.4% crude protein (CP) and 46.1% cell wall digesting 81.9% of dry matter (DM) of diets with up to 37.5% of the DM of the foliage (Nouel and Rincon, 2005). That energy and protein of pods feed potential has suggested that it is possible to be used in rations for rabbits, finding that has
HDDS was based on the seven basic classes of food classified into sixteen (16) food groups namely cereals, vitamin A rich vegetables and tubers, white tubers and roots, dark green leafy vegetables, other vegetables, Vitamin A rich fruits, other fruits (Including wild fruits),organ meat (Iron rich), flesh- meats, eggs, fish and sea foods, legumes, nuts and seeds, milk and milk products, oils and fats, sweet, spices, condiments and beverages (FAO, 2013).The HDDS represents the sum of all the food groups consumed by an individual respondent .The approach for collecting information on HDDS was a qualitative 24-hour recall of all the foods and drinks consumed by the respondent and/or any other household member. The mean score was used as the cut-off points in terms of number of food groups to indicate adequate or inadequate dietary diversity for the HDDS or distribution of scores for analytical purposes and to set research targets or goals. 2.5 Health Capital Theory The canonical model of the demand for health and health investment (e.g., medical care) arises from the work of (Grossman, 1972,
INTRODUCTION Even with populace development and urbanization, expanding the supply of animal products is a central point contributing to food security and quality. Poultry raising is one of the activities that can directly address this important issue (Madia, 2005). Most commonly used energy-rich feedstuffs in conventional poultry diets are Maize, wheat, sorghum, barley and oats (Reddy & Quadratullah, 1996; Ravindran, 2010a), forage feeds (grass hay and legume hay), and oilseed meals (soybean meal and cottonseed meal) (Myer and Maddock, 2001). Feed represents the major cost of poultry production, about 95 percent of total feed cost is used to meet energy and protein requirements. The dominating feed grain utilized as a part of poultry feeds
Families who have a farm in their backyard acquire inputs such as raw materials, seeds, fertilizers and farming tools and machines. They will utilize these resources to be able to yield an output which are vegetables or crops. The families engaging in backyard farming utilizes their resources to create goods such as vegetable which has value in the market. They combine their inputs to produce goods for consumption. 1.6 Conceptual Framework The inputs that cause the phenomenon are the methods of backyard farming used by the families and the effects of backyard farming to the food, budget and income of the family.
Advantages of intercropping include increased crop diversity which helps to protect crops from insect pests and diseases and if well done, may allow for more efficient use of limited soil and water resources and crop yields are improved (Andersen et al., 2007). When two or more crops with different rooting systems, a different pattern of water and nutrient demand, are planted together, water, nutrients and sunlight are used more efficiently (Nkambule and Ossom 2010). It is understood that the farmer choice of intercropping is based on diversity of diet and income source, stability of production with limited resources (Francis et al., 1976; Jornsguard, 2005; Lichtfouse et al ., 2009). In intercropping there is insurance against crop failure while at the same time spreading labour peaks and extending the growing period (Willey, 1985; Ofori and Stern, 1987; Onduru and Dupreez 2007). Therefore, the combined yields of two crops grown in intercrops can be higher than the yield of the same crop grown as pure stand (Ennin et
The dry maize stalks are also incorporated back into the soil after harvest hence increasing the level of organic matter. Erosion is also minimized especially when residues of beans and vegetables are left on the soil surface. Description of Naluwoli primary school garden Naluwoli school garden is located in Butansi Sub-county in Kamuli district eastern Uganda. Kamuli district receives about 108mm of rainfall per annum and the school garden covers about 10 acres of land. Maize is grown in rotation with beans and in some seasons maize is intercropped with beans.
Initially, the pig breeding farm was set up under the stockbreeding department of the institute to promote the breeding of pigs. On one hand, it was to strengthen the selection and breeding of Taoyuan and Berkshire, while on the other hand, it was to introduce other breeds such as Yorkshire and Hampshire with the help of the Council of Agriculture. Later in the mid-stage, Landrace and Duroc was also introduced by the Council of Agriculture and new pig pen were built to undergo the 3 breeds hybridization test. In the last stage, in addition of mass breeding of purebred pigs, a hybrid sow supply centre was also set up to promote the breeding of hybrid sow in various districts. The institute also established an artificial insemination supply station so that the production system of the three varieties of meat-used pig in the province will be implemented.
The primary sector includes raising of crops on or directly extracting products from the land without further processing. The activities under this sector are grouped under agriculture, fishery and forestry. Agricultural activities are subdivided into crop production and raising livestock, poultry and other animals. Hunting, trapping and game propagation are also included under this sector. Bataan is basically an agricultural province with an area of 24,095 hectares devoted to agricultural production that is being provided with rich communal water supplied by rivers and deep wells.
