One study estimated the impact of reducing input subsidies on agricultural production and found that this resulted in lower productivity . looked at the different methods and frameworks employed in assessment approaches worldwide, with a focus on the UK Research Excellence Framework.
Often this is left to chance, but there is great upside to a more systematic approach to supporting key leaders, from high-level government officials to frontline employees. Agricultural transformation plans with an investor mind-set include three strategic planning components. In other cases, provisions of a new Farm Bill extend, revise, and replace language in laws regulating areas that overlap Farm Bill authorities, including food and nutrition, food safety, trade, credit, research and extension, forestry, food safety, organic production, pesticides, and crop insurance.
The chairs the interagency committee that develops the projections and is responsible for the review and clearance of the report. For example, the Native Tobacco Intensification Program in Indonesia, the Agriculture Input Support Programme in Zimbabwe, and the Homestead Food Garden Programme in South Africa all paired input support tools such as garden equipment, seeds, and fertilizer with extension support such as training sessions on farming techniques and optimization methods.
Literature search This study was performed as a literature review based on Thomson Reuters Web of Science TM Core Collection, indexed in the Science Citation Index Expanded SCI-Exp Agricultural sector models for policy analysis the Social Sciences Citation Index SSCI.
analysed an internal database of the French Agricultural research organization INRA with 1,048 entries to identify seven impact areas, with five going beyond traditional types of impacts e. Technology progress is explicitly represented in the production function.seeds, fertiliser was found to be a commonly implemented and effective approach. A second related success factor is differentiation.
These include but are not limited to the negative impact of monocropping , including a Agricultural sector models for policy analysis in fertilizer and pesticide use in foreign investment dependant countries , dependence on health and environmentally harmful crops such as tobacco , enhanced vulnerability to environmental and economic shocks , the environmental consequences of extensive refrigeration and transportation emissions across large distances , and the pressures on agricultural producing governments to avoid enforcing strong labour and environmental controls for fear of losing revenue from foreign trade and investment although there is a body of literature suggesting that these standards are actually strengthened through international trade regimes [, ].
For example, in Zambia the push for value-addition along the agricultural supply chain, in the absence of a government policy to reduce the tobacco supply, led to government support for tobacco processing and manufacturing [, ].
Model documentation: PRIMES-TREMOVE The PRIMES-TREMOVE Transport Model projects the evolution of demand for passengers and freight transport by transport mode and transport mean. Regarding environmental or sustainability impacts of agricultural research, the portfolio of assessment methods could be extended by learning from RIAs in other impact areas.
Too often, agricultural plans recommend particular commodities without paying attention to this basic calculus of farmer household economics.
There is a need to apply existing knowledge of effective interventions targeting agricultural production and farm level economic factors. Because of the broad scope of the review we did not have the financial resources to extend the search and analysis to the grey literature. This review provides initial extrapolative insights from the general literature on the impact of government policies on agricultural production.
What complicates this dynamic of government involvement in providing input support or subsidies and extension services to smallholder farmers is the general guidance by key international agencies such as the International Monentary Fund IMF for governments to remove subisidies and other public supports.
This economic decision will likely lead to increased consumption of tobacco leaf in Zambia, contrary to public health objectives.
