Agriculture constitutes only about one-fifth of Africa’s GDP and about half of the total value of its exports, yet more than two-thirds of the population lives in rural areas and more than 85% of people in these regions depended on agriculture for their livelihoods (World Bank Development Indicators, ).

The intensification of agriculture during the green revolution with its the reliance on antibiotics and hormones in feeding animals in so-called animal factories (i.e. chicken, pigs) as well as on irrigation and chemical inputs in crop fields has led to serious health and environmental of Asia, for example, faces problems of severe salinity, pesticide misuse and degradation of.

northeastern Malheur County, Oregon, is used to irrigate aboutacres of farm-land. Water in this area is also valuable for hydropower generation as it stands at 2, feet elevation above sea level, upstream of 11 hydroelectric dams on the Snake and Colum-bia Rivers.

Industrial agriculture, along with subsistence agriculture, is the most significant driver of deforestation in tropical and subtropical countries, accounting for 80% of deforestation from The current contribution of agriculture to deforestation varies by region, with industrial agriculture being responsible for 30% of deforestation.

Different application in agriculture is affecting the spread of greenhouse gases. Fossil fuels are used more in areas of intensive agriculture [5].

Farm Direct Marketing, Producer Processed Products ()The Farm Direct Marketing Bill exempts farm direct marketers from obtaining an ODA license for production and sales of processed products that they produce from products they grow.

Only sales directly to the end retail consumer are exempt. The – average crop revenues in the East Snake River Plain area are ∼$/acre for continuously operated irrigated farms and ∼$/acre for all irrigated farms.

The potential gain is primarily attributed to the temperature increase, whereas the losses are a combined result of the reduction in water supply and the increase in. The branch station raises onions, potatoes, wheat, barley, asparagus, soybeans, alfalfa, sugar beets and other crops, doing research that supports Malheur County's agriculture industry.

The value of that industry is about $ million a year at the farm gate, according to Shock, and $ million including processing and other spin-offs. Progress 10/01/99 to 09/30/04 Outputs Currently we are working on two projects involving deficit irrigation, specifically helping farmers find profit-maximizing methods to deficit irrigate their crops.

These projects involve farmers in the Columbia Basin and also the farming area around Prineville. These projects will be continuing under the new regional research project. The water value component of irrigated farms comprises approximately 30%–60% of farmland sale prices.

Faux and Perry applied a HPM to agricultural land sales in Malheur County (OR, USA) to reveal the implicit market price of water used for irrigation. The value of irrigation water in this location was estimated to be $ for one cubic meter on the least productive land irrigated, and up to $ per cubic meter on the most productive land.

Health Inspection Service (APHIS) and Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) conduct annual surveys of grasshopper populations in Oregon.

Adult grasshopper surveys conducted by the APHIS and ODA during the summer of the previous year reveal areas where numbers of grasshoppers may be at economically damaging levels in the current year. The results were "impressive," according to Marilyn Moore, OSU Extension agent in Malheur County.

Based on that early success, she and a group of interested growers applied for and received a $, three-year grant from the Oregon Economic Development Department in to develop hybrid poplar as a crop in eastern Oregon.
