Comparing Farm and Village-Level Determinant of Millet Diversity in Marginal Environments of India: The Context of Seed Systems AgEcon
Nagarajan, Latha; Smale, Melinda; Glewwe, Paul.
The purpose of the research paper is to characterize biological diversity related to millets in the semi-arid regions of India at various spatial scales of analysis (e.g., farm household versus community levels) and place that evidence in a broader seed systems (includes both formal and informal) context. An important finding of this research is that producer access to millet genetic resources is affected by the extent to which seed is traded via formal markets or through other social institutions, along with farm and household characteristics. Findings also underscore the need for an enhanced theoretical understanding of local seed markets in analyzing crop variety choices and the diversity of materials grown in less favored environments.

La participación del grupo doméstico en cadenas florícolas en Tequexquinahuac, Estado de México. Colegio de Postgraduados
Elizondo Gómez, Guadalupe.
La floricultura es una de las actividades más importantes del país porque demanda gran cantidad de mano de obra y se considera una de las actividades agrícolas más rentables. Las cadenas productivas son un instrumento que permite conocer y analizar los subsistemas o eslabones que integran un proceso socioeconómico, como: proveedores de insumos (primarios y secundarios), agroindustrias, procesos productivos, unidades de producción-comercialización. Los grupos domésticos agropecuarios pueden ser considerados como el primer eslabón de las cadenas productivas. Existen diferentes tipos de cadenas agropecuarios con necesidades y posibilidades diferenciadas. Los objetivos de la investigación fueron: conocer los tipos de cadenas florícolas que existen en la...

Local seed systems for millet crops in marginal environments of India: industry and policy perspectives AgEcon
Nagarajan, Latha; Pardey, Philip G.; Smale, Melinda.
Changes in India’s seed regulations during the 1990s favored the growth of privately- as compared to publicly-funded sectors. Most advances have been made in the major millet crops, sorghum and pearl millet, as compared to finger millet and other minor millet crops, which in many ways dependent on local markets for seed purposes. In this study, we have analyzed the evolving interactions between formal systems related to the delivery of modern varieties and informal systems for maintaining traditional seeds in the semi-arid regions of India. It is evident that in these marginal environments, crop and variety use decisions, and the crop biodiversity levels take place within the context of local seed markets and a national seed industry. The outcome of the...

Opportunities and barriers for niche marketing of lamb in European LFAs based on consumer attitudes to product quality AgEcon
Rahmann, Gerold; Ashworth, Stuart W.; Boutonnet, Jean-Pierre; Brunori, Gianluca; Papadopoulos, Ioannis.
With commodity prices continuing to decrease and with policy constraint that farmers cannot easily increase their incomes by increasing volumes of production, they must find alternative ways to maintain their standard of living. This can be achieved by either niche marketing of agricultural products or by environmental payments, which are paid by either the government or the consumer. The results of a consumer survey carried out in Less Favoured Areas in Scotland, Germany, Greece, France and Italy to assess consumer attitudes of what constitutes the quality of lamb and the extent to which this provides an opportunity to exploit niche marketing, are discussed. Consumers generally have much less interest in the use of regional labelling, ecologically...

Seed Provision and Dryland Crops in the Semiarid Regions of Eastern Kenya AgEcon
Nagarajan, Latha; Audi, Patrick; Jones, Richard; Smale, Melinda.
Over the last two decades, several seed-related programs have been initiated in eastern Kenya to improve farmers’ access to quality seeds of dryland cereals and legumes. They are provided during two occasions, regular and emergency times. But very often, the formal supply mechanisms limit their role in provision of seeds other than maize. In the absence of any formalized systems of seed provision for other dryland crops, such as sorghum and pigeon pea, farmers have preferred local markets for their seed needs, especially during distress periods. Here we have examined the role of various seed-intervention programs in eastern Kenya, along with the strengths and weaknesses of each program. We have also underscored the importance of local markets and their...
