The major purpose of the Papua New Guinea Agricultural Systems Project is to produce information on small holder (subsistence) agriculture at provincial and national levels (Allen et al 1995). Information was collected by field observation, interviews with villagers and reference to published and unpublished documents. Methods are described by Bourke et al. (1993). This Working Paper contains a written summary of the information on the Agricultural Systems in this Province, maps of the location of agriculture systems, a complete listing of all information in the database in coded form, and lists of villages with National Population Census codes, indexed by agricultural systems. This information is available as a map-linked database (GIS) suitable for use on a personal computer in ESRI and MapInfo formats. An Agricultural System is identified when a set of similar agricultural crops and practices occur within a defined area. Six criteria are used to distinguish one system from another: 1. Fallow type (the vegetation which is cleared from a garden site before cultivation). 2. Fallow period (the length of time a garden site is left unused between cultivations). 3. Cultivation intensity (the number of consecutive crops planted before fallow). 4. The staple...

This study is an effort to justify an emergence to develop an appraisal system for agricultural practices in Malaysia. The idea has come from the fact that although the policies for promoting Malaysia’s agriculture sector towards sustainability were endorsed in 1998, but some agricultural practices in the country are found to be connected with environmental problems. Advanced quantitative analytical tools such as stationary tests and least squares estimations have been employed to attain the study objective and justify our arguments. The results, however, reveal that agricultural practices in Malaysia have been connected, to some extent, with environmental problems in the country. An increase in fertilizer consumption has been found to be positively connected with both agricultural production index and food production index for the country. The study also found that the contribution of Malaysian agriculture in terms of its value added to the national economy is certainly creditable, but this could have been connected with environmental problems on a greater scale. The results further reveal that an increase in the area of arable and permanent crops has also been associated with higher agricultural production index and food production index for the country. While most agricultural practices in Malaysia are observed to have been generally compatible with the standards of sustainable agriculture...

Individual farmers subjectively perceive the attributes of green agricultural innovations and their subsequent benefits. Qualifying this knowledge is important, but past efforts have largely been unsystematic. This systematic study assesses the structure of perceived attributes of sustainable agricultural practices. Through a survey of Malaysian vegetable farmers, the results of confirmatory factor analysis indicate that the most robust structure consists of four attributes. The four important attributes are relative advantage, compatibility, complexity and trialability. Among them, measures are required to link non-economic benefits to profitability to the attribute of relative advantage. Our work represents a guide to assist change agents to evaluate farmer perceptions at different locations systematically. This structured method will help effectively to design and promote sustainable agriculture and other green agricultural innovations.; Yeong Sheng Tey, Elton Li, Johan Bruwer, Amin Mahir Abdullah, Jay Cummins, Alias Radam, Mohd Mansor Ismail & Suryani Darham

Sustainable agricultural practices (SAPs) have been promoted as a mechanism for improving sustainable development in agriculture. Their adoption, however, has been low in many countries. Motivated by this phenomenon, a better understanding of the adoption of SAPs is provided in this thesis, using the Malaysian vegetable production sector as a case study. This thesis is guided by an integrative framework encompassing the theory of interpersonal behavior and the theory of diffusion of innovation. Consistent with the literature, this framework addresses adoption as a complex behavior, which develops from both economic and psycho-social considerations. Applying this framework, focus groups were conducted to explore research hypotheses, and to assist questionnaire design and survey operations. The subsequent questionnaire was used to interview 1,168 randomly selected vegetable farmers from all five regions in Malaysia. Confirmatory factor analysis indicates that farmers’ perceptual structure was built by four attributes of SAPs: relative advantage, compatibility, complexity, and trialability. Guided by their relative importance, extension efforts can be designed accordingly. Among these attributes, relative advantage was rated poorly. This requires corrective measures since excellence in the core attribute is the key to convincing potential adopters. These corrective measures may include education on SAPs’ agronomic and economic potentials...

This study develops the understanding of the adoption of sustainable agricultural practices (SAPs) by investigating the relative importance of a set of multidimensional factors in the Malaysian vegetable production sector. A factor approach is deployed to identify explanatory indicators within an integrative framework that is synthesized from the theory of interpersonal behavior and the theory of diffusion of innovation. We achieved this by analyzing a logistic regression model for the adoption of six individual SAPs (conservation tillage, intercropping, cover crops/mulches, crop rotation, organic fertilizers/ composts, and integrated pest management). The findings indicate that adoption depends on a range of socio-economic, agro-ecological, institutional, informational, and psychological factors, as well as the perceived attributes of SAPs. Fundamental policy understanding of the issue should, therefore, be multidisciplinary. In addition, standardized coefficients reveal that the impact of statistically significant factors on adoption is unequal. In general, the most influential factor is the asymmetric distribution of resources across geographical locations. This is followed by financial capital and a number of factors, including the workforce size...

Sustainable agriculture practices (SAPs) have been widely promoted to improve the sustainability of agricultural systems. The promotion of SAPs is intended to encourage their voluntary adoption. Therefore, the development of sustainable agriculture can be understood through the adoption rate of recommended SAPs. However, little is known about the progress of sustainable agriculture, particularly in Asian countries. To fill part of the knowledge gap, this exploratory study identifies, as a starting point, the current adoption rate of SAPs in the Malaysian vegetable sector. Because the information is not officially collected, a synthesis of ground level information was conducted through a focus group discussion with the Department of Agriculture. The findings suggest that there are varied adoption rates across SAPs. The outputs also point out that the adoption of SAPs is currently at a low level, like most countries. The phenomenon should be investigated from a multi-disciplinary perspective within agricultural systems, integrating (1) socio-economic factors, (2) agro-ecological factors, (3) institutional factors, (4) informational factors, (5) perceived characteristics, and (6) behavioral attributes. By such means, future investigations should be based on a system-orientated integrative framework.; Yeong Sheng Tey...

The note examines the transfer of knowledge from one generation to the next, and from country to country, through trading ties, and social interactions which has raised knowledge sharing activities within Africa, and elsewhere. Such activities have reinforced the universality of indigenous knowledge, and, despite geographical differences, the note looks at the Sodic Lands Reclamation Project in India, as a good example of integration of traditional knowledge into Bank-supported operations. The first challenge the project presented was the treatment of high build-up of salts in the fields, with high concentrations of exchangeable sodium in which finer soil particles are dispersed, but where water and air cannot penetrate. These sodic soils are toxic to plants, and adversely affect agriculture, human, and plant health. The application of traditional knowledge, i.e., spreading gypsum, building bunds, leaching the soil, starting multi-cropping, green manuring and crop rotation, as well as using compost and plowing the land...

The agri-food sector is an important part of the Ukrainian economy. Agriculture could make an even larger contribution to economic growth and the vitality of rural areas in Ukraine than is currently the case. Ukraine has the agro-climatic potential to be a major player on world agricultural markets. Agricultural competitiveness in Ukraine also suffers from inadequate systems to test and document food product quality and food safety. Ukraine's food safety control system is complicated and characterized by fragmented and often overlapping jurisdictions. Many standards applied in Ukraine are inconsistent with World Trade Organization (WTO) provisions, with standards established by the responsible international bodies and with accepted practices in international trade. Without improvements towards an efficient and internationally recognized food quality and safety control system, Ukrainian agriculture will find it increasingly difficult to sell into international markets and its products will not be able to command top prices. The ban on Ukrainian meat...

Um dos maiores desafios da atualidade é a transferência de novas tecnologias aos produtores rurais de maneira eficiente no sentido de melhorar a renda e a qualidade de vida desses trabalhadores. A certificação agrícola é baseada nos princípios das Boas Práticas Agrícolas (BPA) sendo uma ferramenta de gestão que possibilita o acesso de agricultores familiares, produtores de café, a mercados sustentáveis e mais lucrativos. Desta forma, este trabalho teve como objetivo a caracterização das Boas Práticas Agrícolas (BPA’s) e a elaboração de um Roteiro Metodológico para a Certificação de cafeicultores da Associação de Agricultores Familiares de Santo Antônio do Amparo (AFASA). A pesquisa foi realizada por meio de um questionário semiestruturado tipo survey, adaptado por Pereira (2013), já validado e que investigou as práticas agrícolas realizadas em todas as etapas da produção do café. Foram pesquisados 31 produtores que representaram todas as propriedades da Associação. O questionário foi dividido em duas partes. As primeiras 21 questões caracterizam o perfil dos produtores pesquisados. A segunda parte refere-se às práticas agrícolas realizadas pelos cafeicultores e possui 104 questões. Para a caracterização do perfil dos cafeicultores e de suas práticas agrícolas foi realizada a análise multivarada de cluster pelo software estatístico SPSS (Statistical Package for Social Sciences). A análise de Cluster separou os produtores da Associação em dois grupos distintos de acordo com a similaridade de suas práticas agrícolas. Para a elaboração da proposta metodológica para a certificação...

Goiânia has many conflicts that result from the misuse of water. Their streams, with the increasing urbanization, suffered degradation in water quality. The aim of this study was to evaluate the different socio-environmental characteristics and its influence on the biotic and abiotic factors and the influence of human disturbance on the environment. Sites along the stream were selected for water sampling and also were used qualitative methodologies and techniques like questionnaires and interviews. Thus, this work scaled and assessed the importance of Cascavel stream for farmers who occupy the region close to this water source, located between Jardim Atlântico and Vila Rosa, Goiânia, Goiás. Questionnaires were applied, with the surrounding residents and gardeners who live in this area and carried out the diagnosis of biotic and abiotic factors, thus verifying the environmental characteristics. The study evaluated the whole process of human disturbance of the Cascavel stream until today. It appeared that the inhabitants of the surrounding ranchers and yearn for the improvement of the environment, because they live and depend on it, but want to be targeted for this benefit, as learning new techniques for planting or replanting the banks of the stream. It was further observed that the government...

The unconfined aquifer is a major source of water supply in eastern Sussex County, Delaware. It also is an important source of water for surface-water bodies and deeper, confined aquifers. The aquifer consists mainly of permeable sand and gravel; its shallow water table is susceptible to contamination by nitrate and other chemical constituents associated with agricultural practices and effluent from septic systems.; U.S. Geological Survey
