  • Sustainable Potato Farming in Mountainous Agriculture: Empirical Evidence
           from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan

    • Authors: Abdul Hassan; Fazli Wahab, Muhammad Ishaq, Miftahuddin Miftahuddin, Arshad Farooq

      Abstract: Potato cultivation in mountains has the potential to improve food security and provide income for the households. This article open-up the initial results of a project interventions to ensure availability of virus free seed potatoes to the farmers of merged districts, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan and down country, to generate livelihood opportunities for local populations through creation of potato seed industry and to increase farmers’ earnings through increase in potato production using disease free certified seed potato. The study analyzed the effect of training imparted for skill development, improvement in potato production and potato produce from improved seed was used for further seed multiplication. A total of 69 project beneficiary farmers were interviewed through pretested questionnaire from two districts (Kurram and Orakzai) of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan. The farmers selected for seed potato crop cultivation were young, educated and well experienced. Farmers cultivated potato crop for earning more profit. The farmers liked high yielding varieties of seed potato crop introduced by the project. Agriculture Research Institute of the area is the main source of information/knowledge and potato seed. Farmers were satisfied from the knowledge they gained during the training and enthralled with training organization and management. The most important effect of the training was knowledge of crops outlook. The cultivation of seed potato crop in the area was found profitable, however, there was more potential for increasing seed potato production in the area. Local market traders were the main buyers of the majority of seed potato produced. The study suggests to continue the program along with introduction of trial based technologies applicable and varieties suitable to socio-econ-psycho-and climatic conditions of the area. Potato crop variety SM Kaghan along with diversified production system needs to be promoted in the area. More research was needed for understanding the behavior of market channels of seed potato crop.

      Abstract: Employability is needed for bread and butter for everyone. There are limited numbers of jobs opportunities available for Persons with Disabilities in Marathwada region. The unemployment problems are affecting the life style of disabled people in this region. In this study, we mainly focused on the parameters such as socio-economic status, education and skills, physical limitation and available facilities, lack of confidence and self-motivation and it was considered for analysis and to develop model to overcome the problems. After analysis, we found that, disabled people have no basic facilities and educational access, less employability skills and poor family background. Lack of Financial support from government, inadequate number health centers, lack of vocational training at local level, unawareness of welfare schemes are the main reasons behind the overburdened socially and economically disabled people. Our study concludes that, a proposed model is complete solution for preventing the unemployment problems of persons with disabilities in Marathwada region, Maharashtra state.

  • Farmers’ Adoption and Perceptions of Coffee and Banana Intercropping
           System in Rwanda

    • Authors: Jules Ngango
      Pages: 15 - 20
      Abstract: This paper examined farmers’ perceptions of the benefits of intercropping with coffee trees and bananas and identified factors that determine the adoption decisions. The study used cross-sectional data collected from 364 farmers producing coffee and bananas in Rwanda. The analysis was done using descriptive statistics, chi-square test, ordered probit regression model, and binary logistic regression model. The Chi-square test indicates significant differences in farmers’ perceptions about the benefits of coffee‒banana intercropping system among adopters and non-adopters of the coffee-banana intercropping system. Adopters of the coffee-banana intercropping system have a significant marginally higher perception of the benefits of this cropping system. The ordered probit regression results show that age, education, land tenure, livestock ownership, and drought stress variables significantly enhance the likelihood of perceiving the benefits of coffee‒banana intercropping system. The results from the binary logistic regression model show that age, household size, and drought stress positively affect the adoption decisions for the coffee‒banana intercropping system, while gender, group membership, and farm size decrease the likelihood of adoption. Results imply the need for policy to strengthen rural education to promote and create awareness about the benefits of the coffee‒banana intercropping system.
