Spatial information is increasingly used in applied agricultural research for planning and priority setting. Considerable interest has been shown in the potential use of Geographic Information Systems for generalisation of results and agricultural technology. This paper provides an example of an...
In the new farming context, farms are under considerable pressure from their socio-economic and administrative environment to adhere to service or management contracts, which create new constraints regarding production systems, leading farmers to modify their farming practices with a highly...
This study assesses the economics of improved fallow in the densely-populated areas of western Kenya, where soils are nutrient-depleted. A formal survey of 71 farmers showed that half periodically fallow 10–50% of their land for at least one season, mainly for soil fertility restoration. This...
Costa Rican land use and cover (in 1973 and 1984) were investigated using a nested scale analysis. Spatial distributions of potential biophysical and human land use/cover drivers were statistically related to the distribution of pastures, arable lands, permanent crops, natural and secondary...
Land use scenarios should be able to describe land use as a result of changing biophysical and socioeconomic conditions, as well as the pathways of possible future developments including feedbacks between land use and its drivers. Several approaches exist, to date, to develop regional and...
The effect on cow and herd level of different grazing intensities was evaluated using results from short term grazing experiments combined with different dairy herd management strategies from twelve commercial herds using a dynamic stochastic model (SIMHERD) for the simulation of dairy herd...
