They include (1) rising temperatures around the world that lead to migration of climate from regions closer to the tropics to regions closer to the poles, (2) rising sea levels, (3) increased snowmelt and change in the volume and timing of water use for irrigation, and (4) increased probability of Cited by: 5.

      The ICRISAT innovation Hub (iHub), a creative space where agricultural technology entrepreneurs, scientists and experts can collaborate to innovate cutting edge ideas for smallholder farmers, was inaugurated at ICRISAT-India. “This is very important for the welfare of farmers. We have to enhance farmers’ incomes. Terrain NRM’s Wet Tropics Innovation Strategy and online resources are aimed at supporting and connecting farmers and facilitating new ideas to progress through the innovation cycle.

      Innovation through Tradition for Small Farm Success [i]. John Ikerd [ii]. American agriculture seems almost obsessed with endless innovation. Technologies of the past have made it possible for fewer farmers to provide Americans with a vast array of high quality foods at affordable prices, we are told, and new biological and electronic technologies seem destined to revolutionize American.

While in theory it might be possible to produce food crops all year round, in reality a wide range of biological and social factors determine what crops are produced and during which Size: KB.

Farmers in the Tropics needed a better tool to estimate the nitrogen contribution from cover crops to reduce their commercial fertilizer rates. Cover crops, which may appear as weeds to the untrained eye, are healthy plants that enhance soil health and minimize erosion. Covering the soil helps protect this precious resource that provides our food and fiber.

In the early s, Ray co-authored a well illustrated book titled Conservation Farming for Small Farmers in the Humid Tropics.

Co-authored with Dr Parakdrama Waidyanatha, this was a pioneering effort to capture practical insights that Ray had derived from working with farmers across Asia, Africa and Latin America from the s. This is not a How-to-do-it manual. Rather, this is a HOW-WE-DO-IT book based on my “Sustainable Agriculture in the Tropics” manual.

It has been used to train and equip hundreds of small-scale farmers and gardeners in the natural farming adventure. While small holders are the major suppliers of milk in the tropics, numerous larger farms are becoming established throughout the tropics to satisfy the increasing local demands for fresh milk.

Both types of farmers and their advisers will gain much from this manual and improve the productivity, welfare and milk quality from their dairy herds.

It also hinders investments in potentially yield-transforming agricultural technologies, such as improved seeds and fertilizers. Index-based agricultural insurance could affordably help these farmers to manage risk, but.
