These organisms are designed to better supply these rural regions that experience unique problems that hinder their food supply. Engineered crops for wheat, corn, and rice have helped farmers in poor nations massively improve their produces. The world 's population has been growing at an astounding rate, so have their consumption. The United States has somewhat embraced GMOs, and has established significant rules and policies. As such, the US is a primary producer of GM crops along with Canada, Argentina, India, Brazil and
ADVANTAGES OF GM FOODS World population is increasing day by day which implies scarcity of food will be the major challenge that the world will be facing in the future. Genetically modified foods can meet this rising need. 1)STRONG GROWTH: GMO is typically designed to have a faster growth. It can be grown in any harsh environment; each seed is improved to be stronger and can withstand herbicides and pesticides. In return, farmers can get a better crop yield at the end of the season.
Although, in modern agriculture exist a extreme vulnerability associated with genetic uniformity. Polycultures, agroforestry and traditional cropping systems are genetically diverse. Genetic diversity is important due to confer partial resistance to pests and pathogens and allows to exploit different kind of soil and micro-climates for other uses (Brush, 1982). Some studies show that the yield of commercial crops is increased by intraspecific genetic. The stability of crop yield can be increased by the genetic diversity.
1. Introduction 1.1. Research Question How can the process of farming be improved to assist in solving the problem of food insecurity in Africa? 1.2. Hypothesis Vertical farming is a more effective method of farming as it reduces farming time and increases yield.
From equation (4) can be easily noted the factors that increase productivity: By increasing capital intensity (K/L) By increasing land area per farm worker (T/L) By improving techniques and soil quality (A) The first point was involved when harnessing animal power was introduced, since it required animal stock. It became not only a source of labour but also of earnings (demand for meat and dairy products). An animal could provide more work than a farmer. The second point was met when with enclosures and crop rotation we had a concentration of land into larger properties, de facto increasing the land area used by the farmers, since it was all used to grow crops. The third point was involved during the development of the plough and the use of fertilizers.
When illness leads to long-term incapacitation, households may resort to withdrawing savings, selling important assets, withdrawing children from school, or reducing the nutritional value of their food consumption. All of these emergency responses can have adverse effects on the long-term output of household members (Asenso-Okyere et al., 2011). Agriculture has made remarkable progress in the past decades but progress in improving the nutrition and health of poor farmers in developing countries is lagging behind. Agriculture has the potential to greatly reduce poverty- a key contributor to poor health and under
Cocoa farmers were also badly treated, thus the government also put in measures to help these farmers. They support the cocoa industry’s growth and oversees the welfare of cocoa farmers and other players in the industry. To lift Ghanaian citizens from poverty, Ghana's government places emphasis on increasing agricultural productivity, thereby contributing to national food security and rural incomes. Lifting the citizens from poverty will then narrow the wage gap between the rich and the poor, therefore increasing the inclusivity of benefits of
The advancement in modern science has lead to a breakthrough in genetic research. The use of this knowledge of genetics has now been used in more and more everyday things such as our food. According to the World Health Organisation(WHO) , “GMOs can be defined as organisms in which the genetic material has been altered in a way that does not occur naturally by mating and/or natural recombination”(WHO 2014).Genetically modified foods where created and marketed to combat plant diseases and insects that affect crops. It is also used in order to make food more resistant to herbicides to make using weed killers less harmful to the crops and difficult farming conditions such as drought stricken areas. With our population rapidly increasing the food supply might fail to keep up with demand and with a consumerist society a lot of people want an excess of food and so GMOs have been used to greatly increase the crop yield as well as to help plants combat unpredictable climate change .
Classification of Herbal anti dengue capsules Herbal medicines play a major role in treatment of many diseases in humans and animals. Nowadays these medicinal plants have emerged as a unique approach to safe, effective and inexpensive new remedies for variety of diseases as they do not have adverse effects. Many natural drugs isolated from plants were showed good antiviral activity against Aedes aegypti mosquito. Several investigations were carried out on different plant extracts and few of them showed anti viral activity on dengue virus. We provided useful information about the plants which shows antiviral activity against dengue virus .
Now the area has been increased from 0.42 percent (19170 hectares) in 1966-67 to 6.4 percent (415930 hectares) in 201011. The data pertaining to area expansion under horticultural crops is showing that the farmers of Haryana gradually shifting some portion of their land towards the production of high value commodities crops so that they can get more benefits. However, still farmers rely more on the production of food grains crops because of more security in term of price they are getting as compared to the production of horticultural crops where there is high market
