AGRICULTURE & FARMING 1

AGRICULTURE & FARMING

HIGHLIGHT

THE STATE OF FOOD AND AGRICULTURE 2017

Leveraging Food Systems for Inclusive Rural Transformation
Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations

Examines rural change within the context of economy-wide structural
transformation, showing how rural areas are just as important a contributor to alleviating poverty as urban areas. A
distinguishing feature of this report is that it looks at rural and urban areas not as separate domains but as a “rural-urban
spectrum”that ranges from the farm level to megacities.

Examines the agrochemical-dependent agriculture of
Costa Rica and how its uneven regulation in export versus
domestic markets affects Costa Rican vegetable farmers.
Examining pesticide-dependent vegetable production
within two food systems, the author shows that pesticide
use is shaped by three main forces that produce unequal
outcomes that disadvantage less powerful producers.

HIGHLIGHT

FUNDAMENTALS OF AGRICULTURAL SCIENCE

Hatem Mohamed Hussein

At present, 11% (1.5 billion ha) of the globe’s land surface is used in crop
production, representing over a third of the land estimated to be, to some degree,
suitable for crop production. To ensure sustainability, agricultural scientists
are working on finding answers to food safety, environmental problems, and
genetically-modified organisms affecting the practice of agriculture. The fact that
there remain some 2.7 billion ha with crop production potential suggests that
there is still scope for further expansion of agricultural land.

Improvements in new technologies, biotechnology and computer science and
other technological advances have made it possible to develop new research
fields including genetic engineering and agrophysics. This book helps readers
understand how this form of technology came to predominate in agriculture,
explores alternatives and analyses the benefits and challenges of combining
technology. It also discusses finding a way to balance the natural and human
sciences of agricultural science while understanding the human–nature
interactions of traditional agriculture as compared to modern agriculture.
