  • The contribution of agricultural input industries to agricultural innovation

    This paper presents an analytical framework to measure how farmers (i.e., primary agriculture) in countries at different stages of economic development absorb new technology by buying inputs from other industries. By combining information on the use of purchased inputs in primary agriculture (based on country-specific input±output matrices) with information on R&D intensities in the various ...

  • Pressure Measurement For Agricultural Applications

    A couple months ago we took a brief look at how the agriculture industry is turning to automation and data to help monitor product and resource levels, enabling farmers and ranchers to be proactive, rather reactive, about the needs and conditions of their businesses. We all agreed that there are plenty of opportunities for level measurement in the modern agriculture industry. But what of pressure ...

  • Competitiveness and environmental policies for agriculture: testing the Porter hypothesis

    Porter hypothesis suggests tougher environmental regulations could spur technological growth, leading to an increase in productivity of market outputs, simultaneously providing greater environmental protection. This study tests the Porter hypothesis in US agriculture using state level data from 1973 through 1996. Luenberger productivity indexes, which are dual to the profit function and do not ...

  • China’s Rising Soybean Consumption Reshaping Western Agriculture

    Global demand for soybeans has soared in recent decades, with China leading the race. Nearly 60 percent of all soybeans entering international trade today go to China, making it far and away the world’s largest importer. The soybean was domesticated some 3,000 years ago by farmers in eastern China. But it wasn’t until well after World War II that the crop gained agricultural ...

  • Agriculture and Environment in EU-15 — the IRENA Indicator Report

    Background and purpose The IRENA operation (Indicator Reporting on the Integration of Environmental Concerns into Agriculture Policy) is a joint exercise between several Commission directorates-generals (DG Agriculture and Rural Development, DG Environment, Eurostat and DG Joint Research Centre, and the European Environment Agency (EEA) to develop agri-environmental indicators for monitoring the ...

  • Agricultural Knives: Thermal Spray Case Study

    Adding thermal spray hard-facing to the cutting edge of an agricultural machinery knife is a tried-and-true method of extending the useful life of the product. However, not all thermal spray hard-facing is created equal, as we discovered when we went head-to-head with the competition. The Comparison. It’s common practice in this industry to test machine components under typical field ...

  • Scrutinising the influence of the performance of Malaysia agricultural sector on energy use

    Most sectors rely on energy as input to produce output. Though the use of energy by the agriculture sector is not as high as in other sectors, it is still necessary to study the links between the two. This is vital as there are only few studies that illustrate the bonds between them in Malaysia. This study resorts to input–output analysis to examine the link between the two sectors and ...

  • Managing GHG emissions from agriculture: a unique but solvable challenge

    Thousands of companies have developed greenhouse gas (GHG) inventories in recent years as a crucial first step towards measuring and ultimately reducing their emissions. Agricultural emissions are a large part of many of those inventories: farming is currently responsible for between 10 and 12 percent of global GHG ...

  • Carbon Sequestration: Addressing Climate Change and Food Security through Sustainable Agriculture

    Introduction To meet the demands of a growing, increasingly urban global population (approximately 9 billion by 2050), the World Bank calculates that global food production must increase by 70% in the next 35 years. This is a great challenge not only because of the volume of food that must be produced, but because agricultural conditions will not remain constant or predicable ...

  • Tracking Your Data In All Your Unusual Places

    Let’s be honest: I say “level measurement,” you think “fluid in a tank.” It’s ok; most people do. And if we’re really honest with each other, you can admit that you probably were thinking about an industrial tank, related to factory production of some kind. And again, it’s ok. But there’s so much more to level measurement! One of fastest ...

  • Innovation and commercialisation in the Canadian bioproducts industry

    Industrial biotechnology is an emerging industry in which firms are developing novel alternatives to petroleum–based goods. Canadian–based firms have an opportunity to capitalise on the availability of biomass from Canadian agriculture and Canada's broad resource base. However, complexity of the product development process coupled with immaturity of this industry means little is currently known ...

  • Efficiency concept under stochastic consideration of water value in irrigated agricultural land in Crete, Greece

    Water is an increasingly scarce and valuable resource. It is generally accepted that there is a finite supply of water. As economies grow there is an increasing demand for water. The application of water to agricultural lands for irrigation is one of the essential uses of this natural resource in many areas. There is competition among agriculture, industry, and human consumption for the ...
