Many farmers are turning to organic or ‘low-input” farming for economic survival. Organic farmers are less vulnerable than conventional farmers to natural and/or economic risks as their farming systems are more diversified. Future trends in commodity prices, new regulations and research will probably favour organic farmers. On a national scale organic farming could reduce commodity prices, reduce depletion of fossil fuels, improve wild and water life and ensure productivity of the land for future generations. Research into the cost of running organic and non-organic farming was conducted with the conclusion that the cost of running an organic farm were higher than those of a non-organic farm.
Organic vegetables are a necessity for good health. It is essential to know more about the quality of organic vegetables and public awareness of organic food can be increased. Citizen can receive the knowledge about organic vegetable and they are safe or not. When the consumers buy organic vegetables, they should think twice. For example, is it really worth using higher price to buy organic vegetable?
What Are the Advantages and Disadvantages of Genetically Modified Foods? Genetically modified (GM) foods are organisms that have had new genes added to themselves from other organisms. Being around since 1994, they are produced in a way that is very similar to genetic engineering. The technique used in this type of crop management has been introduced to ensure farmers and merchants are able to improve crop or food quality in a more efficient way. Some people arrogate that this technology will help those in the agricultural industry decrease the amount of wasted crops and foods.
Introduction Orientation of study It is essential that the knowledge of traditional food plant is encouraged, this is so because the know-how will enable for better food security/nutrition at household level. Boscia albitrunca commonly known as the shepherd’s tree, witgat in Afrikaans and /hȕni.s in khoekhoe-gowab is situated in the coastal part of Namibia, in the Namib Desert, where there is little rain [3-4]. Is the plant from which this study is taking fruits to analyze nutrients. Nutrients are important to human beings, the benefit of knowing which nutrients are in a particular fruits is a step forward in food security, and being able to preserve those trees that are indigenous to our country. Traditional foods are those foods originating locally in an area with respect to the country, region, district or sub district.
The main reason of producing GMOs is to greatly reduce the risk of cops being lost due to extreme weather conditions and also to improve the crop productions. (What Genetic Engineering In Agriculture Can Achieve, 2013) Also, it allows either the producer or
A third solution is teaching people how to grow food in their specific environment. If hungry people could just grow their food it would be much easier. Here are some pros to this solution, It would reduce the amount of hunger in this world, it would teach other people how to care for themselves, and it would provide jobs for people who can teach others. Sadly, there are also some cons to this solution. A few of them are that farming takes up land, flying people to other parts of the world to teach them is expensive, we would have to install irrigation systems, and people may fight over farmland.
Ronald, P. (2011). Plant Genetics, Sustainable Agriculture and Global Food Security With the main pests now mostly countered it allow farmers to have better harvest, which in turn increase the amount of yield from a single plot of land. Increasing the amount of yield, will also lead to lowering the cost of food for everyone, helping those who are poor to be able to afford
(6) Farming households across the selected states were found to be ageing already, government of the day should encourage the young stars by implementing policies that will make agriculture more lucrative so that the ageing farmers can be replaced by the youths who are presently migrating to urban areas as identified in the labour type used by farmers in this study. (7) Credit and capital investment are identified to enhance farming activities in rural South-West, Nigeria. Government should therefore provide standard loan acquisition systems, to facilitate access to credit. Also, access to farming farm inputs like fertilizers ,chemicals, insecticides, treated seeds etc should be enhanced and channeled through farmers’ co-operative societies in order to increase farmers output and income in the
Land reform is a system whereby statutory division of agricultural land and its reallocation to landless people takes place. Land reforms include the change of laws in a country, reforms such as these may be upheld by a government or other leading groups. There are many advantages to land reforms known to man. Redistributing the land to some farmers can be used in order to to reduce the amount of poverty that is in a state or country. Giving land to those less fortunate, they are likely to help themselves grow more food which would also increase the amount of income that is being received in the household.
Fewer people involve in the agricultural activities. GM food is one of the methods to increase the food supply in the future. Undoubtedly, there are many people concern the safety of GM food. The Government should impose a strict GM labelling regulations to ease people’s concerns. I hope the GM food could be invested with shorter time and lower cost in the future, therefore those poor countries can be benefited from the GM
