The measurement of genetic variation and mode of inheritance of quantitative and qualitative traits are of prime importance in planning the breeding programme efficiently and effectively (Shah et al., 2015). Selection for yield has many complexities because it is end product of various yield components, which are naturally polygenic inherited and maximally influenced by environment. So due to less impression of direct selection for yield, more efforts should be over indirect selection for yield components (changing yield through yield components). Proper understanding of association of different traits, provide more reliable selection criterion to achieve a high seed yield (Akbar et al., 2001). This selection criterion takes into account the information on interrelationships among agronomic characters, their relationship with seed yield as well as their direct influence on seed yield.
They have sheered more light and have offered a comprehensive review of the application of stochastic frontier model in measuring agricultural producers in the developing countries. Production is defined as the transformation of goods and services into finished products (that is, input – output relationship) and this is applied to every production process, dairy production inclusive (Dia et al.,
(Musgrave, R. A. 1987) And there are many things can be called merit goods, like compulsory education or the medical facilities. And it is very necessary to let the government provide the merit goods because the reasons below. The merit goods will not give to the market sufficient if the goods didn’t provide by the government. People will provide merit goods to the market as their thought but not the market really need if give the rights to individuals.
Rogers suggested four elements of diffusion of innovations which are the following. Innovation – can be defined as an object, idea or a practice which is seen as something new by an individual. Innovation could also be a desire to invent something new or make some changes in a society. Communication Channel – this channel can transmit information from one person to another. New innovations spread around with the help of the channel of communication.
Beyond 2013, the aim is to strengthen national resilience in staples production. The key strategies are concentrated in the following: (1) raising farmers' productivity and competitiveness, (2) enhancing economic incentives and enabling mechanisms, and (3) managing food staples consumption. What are the activities being undertaken by the Agri-Pinoy Rice Program? To carry out these objectives, various government interventions are undertaken from the national to the local levels in the form of support to rice production; irrigation; postharvest and other infrastructure facilities; market development services; extension, education and training services; and research and development. Specific interventions provided by the Agri-Pinoy Rice Program are as follows: A.
Establish an NGO to develop a tunnel of skilled and semi-skilled labor to sustainably feed the extractive and refining industry within Nigeria, thereby identifying and sustaining local-international partnerships and to transfer global best practices. Establish a conservation outfit that would deploy the tenets of AgTech to convert waste to profitable commercial and consumer products, while adopting viable technologies via partnerships to tackle grand challenges such as sustainable food production, poaching, and deforestation in the State. In summary, given my passion for techno-economic inclusion/development, Kaduna state’s vast economic potential and the state’s unparalleled leadership vision, I am convinced my inclusion in the 2018 Kashim Ibrahim Fellowship would yield considerable mutual benefits and economic prosperity. Thereby inducing a more virile and dynamically stable socio-economic atmosphere in Kaduna state and Nigeria at large. Adesoji Abolaji
However there are websites and videos on the concept of vertical farming, theoretical issues and benefits of the idea. 3.1. Research Ethics and Validity of Data 3.1.1. Research question How can the process of farming be improved to assist in solving the problem of food insecurity? The question asked above is open to all groups of people.
made by them are against specific requirements of individual customers 3.10.3 POPULARIZATION OF AGRICULTURE MACHINERY The assimilation of R & D requires an effective technological infrastructure of institutions and services to develop and test prototypes, to set up pilot plants for intensive evaluation and extensive demonstrations besides, training and credit support. New technology also requires network for transfer of technology to the manufactures. Popularization of agricultural machinery in the country is undertaken by the Provincial Governments through Department of Agriculture or Department of Agricultural Engineering. The activities are coordinated by the Department of Agriculture in Cooperation with the Ministry of Agriculture, Government of India. The Ministry of Food Processing promotes technology related to agro-processing.
This study aims at contributing to the debate by deviating from the quantitative political economy models and the classical political economy explanations in literature. The main aim of this research is to generate fresh ideas by examining the political economy of agricultural policies through discourses grounded in theory. The grounded theory approach is unique for this study and could generate new theories and insights to enhance understanding of developing country agricultural policy beliefs and political reality of policy process in developing countries. This will help better harmonize donor policies with domestic policy beliefs. The relevance of this study is not only found in the rigorous methodological procedure using rich data.
The problem of environmental degradation is becoming the central issue amid the development everywhere. Communication has been in the spotlight of development for the recent years or we can say that first, it is communication then the development takes place. It is interesting to note, given the basic function of communication as the root of human interaction, that is a planned process. So it is of considerable significance that communication has played dynamic role in the development of the society. Needs of the people encourages effective communication to reach the desired goal.
