In this brief, we describe a range of economic benefits that crop diversity offers with the aim to increase our understanding and awareness of the importance of conserving PGRFA. Economic valuation is one way to define and measure values that are useful to consider in making policy decisions that involve allocation of resources from a society. An Economic Analysis of Crop Diversification under Inorganic and Organic Farming in West Bengal Ranjan K.

The nature and extent of crop diversification in the Karnataka state has been analyzed by collecting secondary data for a period of 26 years from to Composite Entropy Index (CEI) and multiple linear regression analysis have been used to analyze the nature and extent of crop diversification in the state. The CEI for different crop groups has shown that almost all the crop Cited by: In this case, we created a crop diversification index 1 measuring the extent of crop diversification for each smallholder farmer which we then use to create the binary variable CD equals 1 if the crop diversification score is greater than 0 (implying some diversification by smallholder farmer) and 0 otherwise. The vector Z i contains a set of variables thought to influence crop diversification Cited by:
Diversification is a risk management technique that mixes a wide variety of investments within a portfolio. The rationale behind this technique contends that a portfolio constructed of different Author: Troy Segal.

Annual crop production in the Canadian prairies is undergoing significant change. Traditional monoculture cereal cropping systems, which rely on frequent summer‐fallowing and use of mechanical tillage, are being replaced by extended and diversified crop rotations together with the use of conservation tillage (minimum and zero‐tillage) practices.
This book is an attempt to explore the nature, causes and consequences of crop diversification in West Bengal during last two and half decades. "Several attempts have been made by researchers to analyse the reason behind crop diversification.

Crop diversification index was worked out: *Crop Diversification Index C.D = I-H Pi = proportion of jlh crop Entropy Index is regarded as an in verse measure of crop concentration having logarithmic character. This measure is applied on acreage proportion to measure the crop diversification.

Crop diversification refers to the competition among the growing crops in a region. The keener the competition, the higher the magnitude of crop diversification, and the lesser the competition, the greater will be the trend towards crop specialization or monoculture farming, where emphasis is on one or File Size: KB.

Diversification of farm by adopting ancillary, horticulture and other high value enterprises like mushroom etc. will increase farm income but, for marginal farms, increase of farm income comes with a cost of substituting ancillary or other HVE for crop husbandry: Description: t Subject: Agricultural Economics: Theme:Author: Biswajit Sen.
The Crop diversification index (CDI) was used to measure the extent of diversification while the Tobit model was used to analyze the determinants of diversification. Bivariate statistical analysis and mean comparisons were used to compare socio-economic characteristics of diversifiers against their non-diversifying by: 1.
The monoculture systems that were encouraged by governments since the s have led to major socio-economic and environmental crises. Now the diversification of tree crop systems is advancing. Under the inter-temporal household consumption smoothing model, this paper considers crop diversification as an ex ante measure to tackle permanent income shock from climate change.
This paper examines empirically whether crop diversity is affected by climate change and how this diversity will respond to different climate : Shaikh Moniruzzaman. Singhal M. and Gauraha A.

Smith B. (), “Forecasting the Acreage of Cotton”, Journal of American Statistical Association, New series, Vol, March, pp Our analysis relies on a model of the effect of crop diversification on risk and expected yield. It is based on a dataset obtained from a range of 44 species and over a period of 10 by: 2.
According to the authors of Economics and Ecology of Diversification, diversification is certainly a response to market risks, but also to the depletion of environmental resources.
Ecological changes such as declining soil fertility and increasing pressure from pests, diseases and weeds intensify at the end of monoculture cycles, driving crop.
In horticulture, specifically, crop diversification can be relevant, given that the sector includes a wide range of different crops (fruits, vegetables, berries, tuber crops, medicinal and aromatic crops) and that short cycles of most crops favor numerous crop combinations (Singha et al., ; Cited by: 2.
determining the merits of crop diversification at the farm level. Thus, the merits in terms of gains in economic performance of diversified crop farms are examined, so that an informed judgment may be drawn about the suitability of crop diversification as a desired strategy for.

This chapter argues that crop diversification helps to maximize the utilization of scarce land resource, increase productivity, and reduce risk in agriculture. In West Bengal, there is a scope for increasing crop diversity with increased cultivation of boro rice, potato, different oilseeds, pulses and horticultural crops.
