In Africa, rice processing provides employment for many rural people. A survey on local rice processing methods in the north, central and south of Benin shows that local rice is often parboiled before milling. Parboiling is a transformation process that enhances the quality of rice. This important income generating activity is exclusively done by women from rice producing communities. In Benin, the traditional parboiling method is still prevailing and does not lead to quality rice. To address this, an improved rice parboiling technology was developed. AfricaRice subsequently developed a video where rural women explain how to use this improved technology. Four NGOs in central Benin publicly screened the video in 80 villages. After women watched the video, they started using the improved parboiler equipment individually or collectively. Women who didn’t have the financial support to buy the improved equipment understood its principle and developed creative solutions based on the idea of pre-cooking paddy with steam. Video watching also made women pay attention to reducing the loss of steam and to use local resources innovatively to conserve energy. Women also improved the quality of their parboiled rice by removing dirt, properly washing rice and drying rice on tarpaulins. On the other hand, in the north and south of Benin where there were no public video screenings, the traditional rice parboiling method is still predominant. This study shows the potential of farmer-to-farmer video to improve farmers’ practices and their attitudes to work collectively in agro-processing and marketing. [less ▲]

This research aims to address this question and to improve the income of small poultry producers through identification of poultry production systems and the supply chains with their various constraints, including the diseases and to analyze the explicative factors of the poultry development at local level. The research was conducted by interviewing and production record keeping system at the household farms which have poultry production at different scales in Hanoi suburb from December 2008 to November 2009. There are four poultry production systems (1) integrated poultry production system with a good bio-safety level; (2) layer/reproductive poultry production system at the semi-commercial scale with minimal to moderate bio-safety level; (3) broiler production system at the semi-commercial scale with the low to minimal bio-safety level and; (4) backyard poultry production system with low bio-safety level. Only the chicken flocks in the system 1 and the layer/reproductive hens in the system 2 are regularly vaccinated. This research showed that farmers’ know-how is still limited, negatively affecting income and economic efficacy of the systems. In order to have sustainable development in the next years to come, it is necessary to equip farmers with good scientific knowledge or to support them to build improved poultry production systems such as a practical system for disease prevention and food safety, the HACCP.

Since 1990s Vietnam is undergoing rapid industrialization with the national goal of becoming an industrial country. As a result, large tracts of agricultural land were conversed to industrial zones and clusters. This paper analyzes the complex impacts caused by industrialization on household food security. Both qualitative and quantitative methods were applied to investigate how land conversion process to industrial companies affected food security of different groups of peasant households in Hung Yen province, the most rapid industrialization province in Red River Delta of Vietnam. The study showed that industrialization and neo-liberalism affected household food security in three aspects: the lost of large agricultural land area which did not ensure stable jobs for peasants; the decline of living quality as a result of environmental pollution and high living costs; and the lost of household self reliance on food, with 77 percent of surveyed households not producing enough food for their own consumption. Industrialization had created a new class structure in the Vietnamese countryside with the rise of landless peasants who survived by selling their labor and who are net food buyers. The study contributes to the research that link the analysis of household food security with livelihood systems in the processes interacting across scales, from the very local to the global.

The large proportion of sandy soils of Thua Thien Hue, in Central Vietnam, present a particular habitat for soil-inhabiting organisms among which earthworms represent close to 70% of total biomass. This study identified relationships between the characteristics of soil and earthworms. Our inventories yielded the presence of seven species of earthworms belonging to the families Glossoscolecidae, Megascolecidae and Microchaetidae. These were: Pontoscolex corethrurus, Glyphidrilus papillatus, Pheretima rodericensis, Pheretima danangana, Pheretima sp., Perionyx excavatus, and Lampito mauritii. Those of the Microchaetidae were present in acid soils with a high rate of silt and clay. Species in the other families were associated with poor but less acid sandy soils. This study also showed that the number of P. corethrurus was significantly higher in orchards while L. mauritii was significantly more common in soils with cultures other than rice. The species G. papillatus was significantly more abundant in fallow and was the only species found in this habitat. Highest earthworm diversity (Shannon-Wiener index(H=0.97)) was found in crops like manioc and sweat potatoes rather than in rice. [less ▲]
