1- France economy is one of the most powerful economics in the world, it’s highly diversified into different sectors, and keeps up the third biggest wages from tourism in the world. France is considered as an industrial economy as it export chemicals, metals, aircraft, plastic and machinery and foods(cheese in particular) . but agriculture also plays a large role in France economy. a large attribution of the total agriculture output comes from the livestock, mostly cattle, poultry and sheep. and if we want to distribute the economy of France by its geography, the mountain parts and north western of France are the region of producing livestock, and the southern part is mostly growing fruits.
First, 21 percent of the production of the industry are being dominated by the integrated feedmillers engaged in forward integration market. Second, there are high switching costs because of differentiation of animal feeds as demonstrated by 4,979 number of registered and sometimes customized feedmill products with a total of 400 different kinds of brand names which needs high capital investment. However, there is a low bargaining power for small and backyard raisers because they are price takers. They come from the grassroots level which normally makes backyard livestock and poultry production a piggy bank. From time to time, though in smaller quantity of purchase, they also buy animal feeds that are being retailed in the livestock and poultry supply stores located within their vicinity or nearby locality.
1.0 Introduction This research sought to analyze the farm level profitability and efficiency among smallholder poultry farmers in Kampala Central Division. This chapter presents information related to this topic in the following sections: background to the study, problem statement, study objectives, research hypotheses, scope, significance, justification, definition of key terms and conceptual framework. 1.1 Background to the Study Agriculture is the backbone of Uganda’s economy involving 2.5 million farm families, accounting for approximately 31 percent of the country’s GDP and over 90 per cent of exports. The sector also provides the foundation for a number of agro-based industries. Eighty eight percent of the population in Uganda live in
Plant Disease Management: Cucurbitaceous Crops Cultivation of vegetable is a remunerative venture than cereals and other filed crops. India is the second largest producers of vegetable with 2.8 % of total cropped area under vegetables. Vegetables constitute a very important part of human diet and are very good source of vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre. In India, cucurbits share about 5.6% of the total vegetable production in the country. In our country, still there is a production and productivity gap to achieve the target for supply of minimum 200 g and Optimum 300 g. vegetable per capita per day as against the presently available 145g.
The development of agriculture has much to do with the economic welfare of the country. India’s agriculture remained under developed for a long time.

The high potential of this sector in earning valuable foreign exchange has been greatly realized through taping the potential in value addition sectors. The agriculture mix of Pakistan is heavily based on important crops (wheat, rice, sugarcane maize and cotton) which account for 23.55 percent of the value added in overall agriculture and 4.67 percent of GDP. The other crops account for 11.36 percent of the value added in overall agriculture
He noted that slow agricultural growth is a matter of concern as most of Nigeria’s population is dependent on rural employment for a living. Current agricultural practices are neither economically nor environmentally sustainable and Nigeria's yields for many agricultural commodities are low (Nidhi 2011). Low agricultural production can be traced to labour availability which affects the use of farmland in the traditional farming system. Since agriculture in Nigeria is virtually un-mechanized, human labour becomes vital in all production systems, accounting for about 90% of all farm operations. Under semi-mechanized systems, including animal traction use, human labour use is as high as 70% of all operations (NISER,
