A food system comprises the entire range of actors and interlinked activities related to food production, processing, distribution, marketing and trade, preparation, consumption, and disposal. When a food system operates without compromising the needs of future generations, it is considered to be a "Sustainable Food System." The present-day food systems in Sri Lanka are diverse, and the natural and physical environment, infrastructure, institutions, society and culture, and policies and regulations within which the food systems operate, as well as the technologies employed, have shaped their outcomes. Agricultural research is a key factor in terms of innovation and technological advances . Innovation has been the main driver of food systems' transformation over the past few decades and will be critical to addressing the needs of a rapidly growing population in a context of climate change and scarcity of natural resources. In addition, agricultural research must help meet the rising demand for food at affordable prices. Comprising 17 chapters written by specialist(s) in their respective subject-areas, this Contributed Volume on "Agricultural Research for Sustainable Food Systems in Sri Lanka: A Historical Perspective" shares the scientific knowledge accumulated by the National Agricultural Research System of Sri Lanka, including universities, and offers recommendations on how to make food systems more sustainable in order to address the current needs of Sri Lankan society. It presents perspectives on four key thematic areas, namely: (i) Crop and animal production, management, and improvement, (ii) Agro-product processing technologies, (iii) Natural resource management, and (iv) Socio-economic development and agri-business management.

Economics of Contract Choice: Case of Poultry (...
68,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The phenomenon of contract farming (CF) has remained a controversial subject in the literature. In the recent years, the interest of policy makers, researcher and development planners in CF in general and broiler farming in particular as a mechanism to govern linkages between farmers and agribusiness firms has increased considerably. The agri-business proponents advocate CF as a key strategy for rural transformation based on a dynamic partnership between small holders and agro-industrial enterprises. It provides opportunities to both the parties to benefit from modern technology, marketing facilities and other services to boost their incomes. However, there is a counter argument regarding the benefits of CF to the small holders and reject the idea of equal partnership. They argue that CF may subjugate the peasantry to increased control and exploitation by capital, leading to a peculiar form of proletarianization. Since the CF system in India is a recent phenomenon, research in this field is still at the initial stage, particularly in case of broiler. The book presents the economics of contract choice of broiler production under contract and non-contract production system.

Agri-Food Restructuring in the Australia Beef I...
79,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The sociology of agriculture and related disciplines have provided useful insights into the restructuring process of agri-food systems. However, the contribution is usually divided between political economy of agriculture and sociocultural analyses of production and consumption of food. This book integrates both analyses into a single analytical framework. In doing so, the author offers an original contribution by skilfully broadens the theoretical framework developed by the sociologist Manuel Castells on his work The Network Society'. This book answers compelling questions associated with institutional and organisational aspects as well as social meaning and identity, all of which influence relationships between production and consumption of agri-food commodities. In particular, this book analyses the transformation of the Australian beef industry and shed lights on the new trends in the restructuring of the global agri-food sector. The analysis and research findings in this book are especially helpful for social scientists concern with changes power relations along the agri-food chain, current supermarket power, and recent regulation and governance of agri-food systems.
