A favorite Cornish toast at the end of the 18th century was "fish, tin and copper," and it was the first of these that brought prosperity to the Mounts Bay ports of Mousehole and Newlyn. Fish, fishing grounds, and markets change, but Newlyn survives at the center of the fishing industry and remains one of Englanda??s most important fishing ports. Fishing in Mousehole has long since ceased, but the port enjoys a thriving tourist industry. From the medieval watermills and market place of Mousehole, to the controversial slum clearance, the story of the two towns is told against a backdrop of national concerns. These include the Spanish Raid of 1595, the English Civil War, the visits of John Wesley, and the arrival of the railways. This book reminds the reader to look beyond the picture-postcard beauty of these historic Mounts Bay ports and discover the history and culture of a very distinctive locality.

The underlying economic factors that effect primary production are frequently studied and written about - soil quality, animal health, climate, machinery - but this is the first book to explore the role of the psychology of the manager running the farm business, the person responsible for staff, strategic decisions and financial success or failure. The book addresses fundamental questions such as the process of decision making, personal skills, and methods to improve managerial ability.
Inter and intra-accession variation indicated the presence of local wealth for lentil that is yet needed to collect, therefore further exploration mission is suggested to strengthen gene pool. Except Punjab province, all the other areas are required to explore before extinct of this local germplasm.The RAPD markers exhibited significant association with three parameters (SDS-PAGE, isozymes and qualitative trait). All the five parameters facilitated to resolve issues related to genetic diversity in lentil, anyhow total seed proteins and isozyme (six in present case) gave low level of genetic diversity that suggested to incorporate more isozymes for investigation due to its precise fingerprinting and wider use. The RAPD could be enhanced including more primers including more germplasm, as 50% primers in general were polymorphic in nature.
Biomass currently accounts for about 15 per cent of global primary energy consumption and is playing an increasingly important role in the face of climate change, energy and food security concerns.Handbook of Bioenergy Crops is a unique reference and guide, with extensive coverage of more than 80 of the main bioenergy crop species. For each it gives a brief description, outlines the ecological requirements, methods of propagation, crop management, rotation and production, harvesting, handling and storage, processing and utilization, then finishes with selected references. This is accompanied by detailed guides to biomass accumulation, harvesting, transportation and storage, as well as conversion technologies for biofuels and an examination of the environmental impact and economic and social dimensions, including prospects for renewable energy.This is an indispensable resource for all those involved in biomass production, utilization and research.

One of the main objectives of nature conservation in Europe is to protect valuable cultural landscapes characterized by a mixture of open habitats and hedges, trees and patchy woodland (semi-open landscapes).The development of these landscapes during the past decades has been characterized by an ongoing intensification of land use on the one hand, and an increasing number of former meadows and pastures becoming fallow as a result of changing economic conditions on the other hand. Since species adapted to open and semi-open landscapes contribute to biodiversity in Europe in a major way, this development is of great concern to nature conservation. In several countries largescale, nature-adapted pastoral systems have been recognized as one solution to this problem. These systems could offer an alternative to industrial livestock raising and keep a high biodiversity on the landscape level. Against the background of livestock diseases such as BSE and Foot and Mouth Disease and the efforts...
Proper horse care begins with good nutrition practices. Chances are, if a horse needs medical attention, the causes can be traced to poor feeding practices, nutrient-deficient feed, bad farming and, ultimately, imbalanced, demineralized soil. Pat Coleby shares decades of experience working with a variety of horses. She explains how conventional farming and husbandry practices compromise livestock health, resulting in problems that standard veterinary techniques can’t properly address. Natural Horse Care addresses a broad spectrum of comprehensive health care, detailing dozens of horse ailments, discussing their origins, and offering proven, natural treatments.
Phytoplasmas are a worldwide issue in plant health. A range of serious diseases are caused by these bacteria in major crops around the globe. Knowledge of the importance of phytoplasmas as plant disease agents has advanced rapidly over the last decade with an increased interest in the impact of these pathogens on important field and horticultural crops as well as ornamental plants. This comprehensive volume brings together current research on phytoplasmas, covering their biology, taxonomy and genomics as well as their interactions with plant hosts and transmission by vectors.
Agriculture and food production have a large footprint on the landscape globally and compete for space with land for nature conservation. This book explores the competition between the food needs of a growing human population and the conservation of biodiversity as intensified by the emerging use of crops for energy production. As concern about the impact of greenhouse gas emissions on the climate grows and oil prices increase, energy production from agricultural crops has become a significant industry. At the same time, increase in food demand due to population growth has been accelerated by the rising affluence associated with economic growth in major developing countries, increasing per capita consumption. Consumers are concerned that the price of food will continue to increase sharply as a result of this competition, but a loss of biodiversity may be another major outcome. Drawing on his expertise in plant conservation genetics, the author provides a balanced appraisal of the...

The State Barrier Fence of Western Australia, formerly known as the No. 1 Rabbit-proof Fence, the State Vermin Fence and the Emu Fence, is a pest-exclusion fence constructed between 1901 and 1907 to keep rabbits and other agricultural pests out of Western Australian pastoral areas. There are three fences; the original No. 1 Fence, which crosses the state from north to south, the No. 2 Fence which is smaller and further west, and the smaller east-west running No. 3 fence. The fences took six years to build. When completed in 1907, the Rabbit-Proof Fence (including all three fences) stretched 2021 miles (3 253 km). The cost to build the fences at the time was ?337,841.
Book DescriptionThe agri-food sector is continuously confronted with major challenges. It is a complex sector in the economy because of its important societal implications and embeddedness within a broader rural system. Furthermore, the agricultural sector is a multi-agent sector with a complex chain of inputs, intermediates, outputs and markets that are highly regulated. Multi-agency and strong government regulation result in a complex institutional system. The aim of this book is to bring a selected state-of-the-art of the conceptual and empirical New Institutional Economics-inspired research by European agricultural economists. Besides the social environment, the two main components of the institutional environment are policies and markets. The title of this book tries to capture the main subjects. For a farmer, as an economic producing actor and social agent, his environment comprises of politics, markets and rurality, of which the first is seeking to get more ordering in the two...

Slash and burn consists of cutting and burning of forests or woodlands to create fields for agriculture or pasture for livestock, or for a variety of other purposes. It is sometimes part of shifting cultivation agriculture, and of transhumance livestock herding. Historically, the practice of slash and burn has been widely practiced throughout most of the world, in grasslands as well as woodlands, and known by many names. In temperate regions, such as Europe and North America, the practice has been mostly abandoned over the past few centuries. Today the term is mainly associated with tropical rain forests. Slash and burn techniques are used by between 200 and 500 million people worldwide.
