This type of farming helps increase food production, lowers business costs, encourages technological development, and ETC. Which in return helps the public in a greater good. Food safety risks caused by factory farming come in a wide variety. Ranging from high animal death rates to less nutrition
Development of industrial units in rural areas through rural entrepreneurship has high potential for employment generation and income creation. • Proper utilization of local resources: Rural industries help in the proper utilization of local resources like raw materials and labor for productive purposes and thus increase productivity. They can also mobilize rural savings which help in increase of rural funds. • Improved standard of living: Rural entrepreneurship will also increase the literacy rate of rural population. Their education and self-employment will prosper the community, thus increasing their standard of living.
A benefit for the farmer is agronomists help farmers enhance production. As before mentioned, agronomists save time for farmers and reduce the amount of labor required. With an agronomist checking fields for the farmer, the farmer has more time to focus on getting machinery ready for harvest. Also, with the agronomists checking fields, the crops will be ensured to receive the proper amount of nutrients. With the correct amount of nutrients, the farmer can increase his production.
The recommendation is expected to give fast return because the higher output quantity can improve the profit, while the better product quality can be sold in higher price or exported. To support the effectiveness of the recommendation it is also found that, Chen and Groenewold (2006) had tested that improving the agriculture output can be the most efficient way to increase the per capita income, spending and welfare of t... ... middle of paper ... ...a Regional Approach to Outstanding Teaching and Learning: A case study.

It is hypothesized that cooperatives having long experience can perform better hence it can satisfy its members. Degree of Government support (DEGOVSUPP): This is the extent or degree of government support as perceived by members to multipurpose agricultural cooperatives to expand their internal business growth and thereby to provide quality and adequate service for their members as well as to the community. Government’s close follow up and support of cooperatives is very necessary to build a strong sector that contributes to development of an economy (Shaw, 2007). This is expected to influence performance of cooperatives
While companies, like fair-trade, help provide farmers with health and fair crop prices to increase national wealth farmers have to increase productivity and increase capital investments (Nelson & Galvez, 2000). Educated citizens can advance nations to achieving a more economic and better developed society, which in return will change a vicious cycle into a virtuous one creating a more sustainable
The input traits of the first stages in genetically modified crops may increase farmers’ net profits through savings in production costs, reducing chemical use, increased flexibility in crops planted, and in some cases increased crop yield. The second stage of genetic modification will focus on output traits such as improved nutritional features and proc... ... middle of paper ... ...nd more atomization fewer chemicals will have to be used and it will reduce the amount of chemicals that are wasted. In conclusion I hope that this information will help explain the ways that biotechnology, Global Positioning Systems and advanced equipment can help reduce the amount of chemicals that are used on the farm. Biotechnology is not a bad idea and is possibly the only way that we can keep up with ever changing weeds and pests. GPS system can help improve field records and give you more precise farming and will pay for themselves in the end.
This helps conserve a strong ecosystem and healthy lifestyle for all human beings.

Furthermore, if we do not practice sustainable agriculture, our soil has more of a chance to become more vulnerable to droughts and flooding, possibly increase a risk for more global warming, and be less resistant towards antibiotics and pesticides.
Another benefit of this stage is that farmers are in a stronger position to procure goods in larger quantities; this in turn helps drive the price of ------ down. All of this helps strengthen the community and protects it from “external influences” (“Sufficiency Economy Office of the Royal Development Projects Board,”
The agricultural productivity gains in third world countries have significant impacts on the final poverty levels as there is universal increase in agricultural activities. The importance of increasing agricultural production in developing countries highlights issues increased living standards, increase in both social and technological facilities (Grushkin, 2012, p.15). In the long run genetically modified foods reduce global poverty by increasing income, low costs of production and consumption benefiting the poor people. In a nutshell the overall impacts of increased agricultural productivity are without a doubt positive, through reducing poverty level rates (Magdoff & Tokar, 2009 p.12).
