  • Risk assessment within agricultural production: soil conservation
           strategies and its environmental and economic aspects - a case study for
           Bavaria
    • Authors: Rico Hübner, Jie Lu, Martin Wiesmeier
      Pages: 1 - 20
      Abstract: The definition of risk within agricultural production systems is summarised and an overview of different sources of risks in agriculture is provided. Focusing on risks associated with the soil, the influencing factors are analysed in detail. From this, a simple methodology for a probabilistic modelling approach to evaluate the effect of the different cropping tillage system and soil conservation practices is developed concerning environmental as well as economic aspects. Selected uncertainty factors, such as rainfall and crop yields are simulated using the program @RISK. With this method, the possible future performance of various combinations of crop and management practice under given environmental conditions can be simulated and compared, considering not only soil erosion control but also increasing farmers' income.

  • Short-term and long-term price forecasting models for the future exchange
           of Malaysian natural rubber market
    • Authors: Aye Aye Khin, Seethaletchumy Thambiah, Kevin Low Lock Teng
      Pages: 21 - 42
      Abstract: Kuala Lumpur rubber market drifted uncertainly within a narrow range. Market situation provided upward pressure on prices and producer and consumer interest was poor coupled with weak prices in the regional markets. The objectives of the study are: (a) to estimate the relationship between natural rubber (NR) price and supply, demand, and stock, while some other factors of crude oil price and exchange rate by using simultaneous supply-demand and price system equation and Vector Error Correction Method (VECM); (b) to forecast the short-term and long-term NR price; and (c) to compare and evaluate the price forecasting models. Firstly, the data was analysed by Ferris and Engle-Granger's procedure; secondly, both price forecasting methodology were tested by Pindyck-Rubinfeld and Makridakis's procedure. The result shows that VECM model is more efficient using quarterly data; a short-term price forecast is decreasing and a long-term price forecast is predicted to increasing trend of the Malaysian rubber market.

  • Integrated farming in Greece: a transition-to-sustainability
           perspective
    • Authors: George Vlahos, Pavlos Karanikolas, Alex Koutsouris
      Pages: 43 - 59
      Abstract: The aim of this paper is to explore the linking process between a niche and the regime in the context of an emergent transition, using the concepts of 'anchoring' and 'translation' embedded in the broader multi-level perspective. The case study concerns the transition of an intensive farming system, from subsidy oriented productivism, towards an integrated farming (IF) system focusing on the market, in the canned peach sector in Imathia, Northern Greece. The study revealed an anchored regime-triggered innovation, which resulted in the creation of a market niche within the incumbent regime. In this transition, all forms of anchoring are involved, and various forms of translation were encountered while a hybrid forum was identified, serving as the 'fertile ground' upon which all subsequent networking and translation activities took place. Research findings question a clear-cut analytical separation between the three levels of the multi-level perspective, as well as the relevance of a bottom-up procedure as a prerequisite for niche emergence vis-à-vis policy induced change.

  • Does inward foreign direct investment affect agriculture growth? Some
           empirical evidence from Pakistan
    • Authors: Adeel Ahmed, Evelyn Shyamala Devadason, Dawood Jan
      Pages: 60 - 76
      Abstract: This study empirically investigates the effects of inward foreign direct investment (FDI) on Pakistan's agricultural growth, spanning the period 1977-2015, using the vector error correction model (VECM). Overall, the analysis shows that there is a positive relationship between agricultural growth and FDI. Further, the results indicate that the liberal 1997 policy of opening up the agricultural sector to FDI does not yield favourable results. Together, these results suggest that the long-term benefits of FDI inflows for Pakistan can only be fully realised when, other development issues related to domestic factors and institutions are addressed in tandem with FDI reforms. Therefore, there should be policy congruence among FDI policies and reforms with domestic developmental policies for a developing agrarian country like Pakistan to advance growth in the agriculture sector.

      Abstract: In the past few decades, researchers are striving for the development of safe alternatives to mineral oils which are getting scarce and hazardous to the environment. Oils extracted from agricultural crops are one among the solutions. In the current work, the potentiality of sesame oil (SESO) is tested to use it as an eco-friendly base stock for lubricants. SESO is one of the major agricultural crop oils produced all over the globe. In the current work, the physicochemical, rheological, thermal, oxidative, and tribological properties of SESO are studied and compared with coconut oil (CO), sunflower oil (SUO) and a commercially available mineral oil, SAE 20W40. The fatty acid profiles of vegetable oils are evaluated using Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GC-MS) technique. Tribological properties of the oils are assessed using a four-ball tester. Sesame oil is seen to possess excellent thermal and tribological properties. Its viscosity index is high whereas its viscosity range and oxidative stability need to be improved. SESO shows the better coefficient of friction (COF) and its wear scar diameter (WSD) is less compared to other vegetable oils. On further improvement, by adding suitable additives this crop oil base stock can be developed into a competing environmental friendly lubricant.

      Abstract: Crop land suitability for wheat crop is carried out in the Patan District of North Gujarat, India. There are many factors which affect the land suitability for wheat cultivation like land use, land cover, soil texture, slope, soil pH, soil salinity, soil sodicity, soil depth, soil drainage, groundwater quality and soil nutrients [nitrogen (N), phosphorous (P), potassium (K)]. The land evaluation criteria were adopted from soil suitability manual of National Bureau of Soil Survey and Land Use Planning (NBSS & LUP), India and literature survey. All these factors have been assigned weightage obtained from Satty's method. The crop land evaluation results of the present study area were classified into four categories of wheat suitability (highly suitable, moderately suitable, marginally suitable, and unsuitable) as per Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). These categories were arrived at by integrating the various layers with corresponding weights in Geographical Information System (GIS) environment. This study proposes a methodology for evaluation and mapping of land suitability for wheat crop using the spatial MCDM techniques. The results indicate that distribution of wheat acreage under various suitability classes was highly suitable: 34.09%, moderately suitable: 47.37%, marginally suitable: 11.76% and unsuitable: 6.76%.
