This article combines the social survey data on access to land and those of the adoption of tied ridging as soil conservation technique to help better understand the management of erosion and runoff by farmers in the Western Highlands of Cameroon, specifically in the hills of Fongo-Tongo villages’ group. The study focused on 230 plots owned by 157 respondents on 158 people inventoried. Five main modes of access to land were listed as: inheritance, purchase, temporary transfers, donations and rental. The owners and operators of the hills of gentle slopes (between11% and 17%) and steepest slopes (between 22% and 29%) were inventoried. Two main social ranks were identified: the dignitaries (Chiefs, Notables, Elites and heirs) and other (non-heirs son and women). The study showed that the agronomic abilities of plots as recognized by farmers are a key factor in the implementation of soil conservation techniques. The peasant approach of soil fertility has been scientifically proven by the physicochemical analysis of soil samples taken under plant species used locally as indicator of soil fertility (Pennisetum spp on fertile soils and Imperata cylindrica and Melinis minutiflora on poor soils). The study showed that access to land, adoption of tied ridging and slope exploitation were significantly influenced by the socio-economic status of farmers (p <0.05). [less ▲]

This study highlights the perception and the option value of climate information in the sahelian and sudano-sahelian agro-climatic zones of Burkina Faso. From the sampled farmers only 21.78% have access to climate information, while 93% of them need climate information to guide through their decision in planning agricultural activities. Option value shows the interest granted by farmers using climate information. About 64% of the farmers are willing to pay an average of Francs CFA 546.34 to obtain climate information. The willingness to pay is determined by the the farmers’ ability to predict the climate, to use radio as a means of information, farmers’ awareness of previous forecasts and early onset of rainy season. While farmers considered benefits from the use of climate information, it is clear that its contribution to farm income remains a field of research to explore. Thus it is necessary to experiment with individual farms and to evaluate the contribution of climate information to the value added in different crops and farmers’ income. [less ▲]

This study assesses the impact of supplemental irrigation from small man-made basins on cereal production in climate variability and change context marked by dry spells in the Sahelian zone of Burkina Faso. After two years, the experiments showed that this innovation in family farms increases maize yield and allows growing a second crop with the surplus of water available in the basin. At the end of the 2012-2013 campaign, the average maize yield was estimated 2.5 t/ha on experimental plots (EP) and 1.7 t/ha on control plots (CP). The average yield of the 2013-2014 campaign was evaluated as 3.3 T/ha and 0.9 t/ha for EP and CP respectively. Increase in yield is 0.8 t/ha for the 2012-2013 campaign and 2.4 t/ha during 2013-2014. It appears as well as the yield obtained on EP in 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 for bridging cereal need of 2 and 6 additional persons respectively in agricultural households compared to the CP. The review of the Net present value, Internal rate of return and the Net benefits increase ratio show that the profitability to practice supplemental irrigation depends on the types of basins.

This study highlights the factors determining the spread of agricultural innovations for water harvesting since the drastic effects of drought 70s in Burkina Faso. These innovations include zaï, stone bunds, bunds land, half-moons, mulching and grass strips. A survey of 629 farmers revealed that farmers fall into five categories which are the pioneer, early, latecomer, late and non-adopters. After four decades of diffusion (1974-2013) the rate is estimated at 69.3% for stone bunds, 49.1% for zaï, 26.2% for grass strips and less than 10% for half-moons, bunds land and mulching. The multinomial logit model showed that the climatic conditions in the Sahel zone, age and perception of increased dry spells of farm households promoted the spread of these innovations. However, the low level of organization and access to agricultural services were the major constraints to their adoption. [less ▲]

This paper presents the main potentials and challenges of the GM crops in approaching agricultural growth, development, and sustainability. Accordingly, the paper will first discuss briefly the differences between agricultural growth, development, and sustainability. Then, the main potentials and challenges of these crops in approaching agricultural growth, development, and sustainability will be discussed. Finally, a conclusion will be drawn to let policy makers understand, based on which circumstances, GM crops may lead to sustainable agriculture. [less ▲]

This study analyzes farmers' practices and willingness to adopt supplemental irrigation on rainfed crops in the Sahelian and Sudano-Sahelian areas of Burkina Faso. A survey of 629 farmers revealed a diversity of farming practices within and between two agro-climatic zones. Over 65% of farmers believe that supplemental irrigation is a good way to mitigate the adverse effects of dry spells on crop yields. Determining factors of farmers’ willingness to adopt supplemental irrigation were identified using a logistic model. Lack of information is the major obstacle to promoting this innovation. Farmers’ training and information dissemination are the best ways to increase the acceptance of this promising technology. [less ▲]

Cet article analyse les facteurs structurels, comportementaux et de performance qui déterminent l’accès au crédit des exploitations agricoles au Bénin. Les données ont été collectées auprès de 475 exploitations agricoles. Un modèle logit binomial a été utilisé au cours de l’analyse. Les résultats ont montré que la taille des ménages, la proximité des IMF, l’appartenance à un groupement de solidarité financière et le revenu issu de la principale culture sont les facteurs qui influencent l’accès au crédit. L’analyse des effets marginaux a indiqué que l’amélioration de la proximité des IMF et l’appartenance à un groupement de solidarité financière sont susceptibles d’augmenter significativement l’accès au crédit. Ainsi, nous recommandons l’amélioration du taux de couverture des IMF présentes au Bénin et la sensibilisation des exploitants agricoles à la formation et/ou l’adhésion à des groupements de solidarité financière.

Poultry production plays an important role in the structure of familial incomes in Vietnam but this activity is currently met with difficulties caused by the great influence of inputs/outputs on the markets and the risks of epidemic diseases. This research was conducted for interviews and records according to book keeping among 280 poultry smallholders; 100 intermediary agents of poultry meat supply chains at the various scales of poultry supply chains and the diversification of poultry markets (poultry producers, private hatcheries, collectors of live poultry, slaughter houses and distributors of poultry meat) in Hanoi Suburb between 2009 and 2010. This research aimed at addressing to improving the income of small poultry producers and identifying the intermediary economic agents and its economic distributions. Furthermore, this research would like to solve restoring the poultry production and the various restraints faced of food contamination in poultry meat supply chains. Institutional organization and financial analysis approaches in different agents was used to calculate the value-added and to explain this problem in poultry meat commodity chains. Institutional organization of poultry meat supply chains is really complex with diverse economic agents. There are not many poultry meat products have a good traceability. These recent years, broiler industrial chickens and ducks met with some difficulties with the profits were very unstable or loss-making. But this industrial broiler chicken still occupies more and more an important role for the demand of domestic consumers. In addition, color broiler chickens were chosen for more satisfying the Vietnamese taste. In fact, local or color crossbred broiler chickens have a good economic performance but the output is still instable. Traders of live poultry and manual slaughter-house have a good economic performance caused by using the source of familial labor and selling directly to consumers. The systems of automatic skill of live poultry have still limited. The consumers do not be informed the useful information on food safety standards. [less ▲]
