The attitudes and behaviours of private landholders toward the conservation of a highly transformed and critically endangered habitat, Overberg Coastal Renosterveld OCR a grassy shrubland of the Cape Floral Region, South Africa are described. Personal, semistructured interviews were conducted with landholders, representing 40 properties in the Overberg region, on topics such as management and utilisation of OCR, the depth of their knowledge of its conservation importance, what they perceive its value to be, and the extent of their willingness to conserve it. General attitudes toward conservation incentives and provincial conservation authorities were also investigated.

Llewellyn, Rick S. Corbeels, Marc. Registered: David J. The farm-level economics of conservation agriculture zero tillage, mulching and crop rotation are described, reviewed and modelled. The economics are defined broadly to include not just shortterm financial benefits and costs, but also the whole-farm management context, constraints on key resources such as labour and capital, risk and uncertainty, interactions between enterprises, and time-related factors, such as interest rates and the urgency of providing for the farm family.
Literature on the farmlevel economics of conservation agriculture for resource-poor farmers is reviewed. There is not a large body of high-quality relevant studies. Those that have been published highlight that the economics are highly heterogeneous and need to be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Their results tend to indicate that it would be profitable to adopt conservation agriculture or components of it although not in all cases. This contrasts with disappointing adoption in many of the regions of interest. Potential reasons for this disparity are discussed. A general model of the farm-level economics of conservation agriculture and its components is presented, and used to illustrate influences on the overall economic attractiveness of conservation agriculture.
Good quality economic analysis should be used more extensively to guide research and extension in this area, particularly in relation to the targeting of effort, and adaptation of the system to suit local conditions.

The public sector, private sector, and civil society organizations are working to enhance productivity and competitiveness of the agricultural sector to reduce rural poverty and sustain the natural resource base. The pathways involve participation by rural communities, science and technology, knowledge generation and further learning, capacity enhancement, and institution building. SLM will also support a range of ecosystem services on which agriculture depends. The Sustainable Land Management Sourcebook provides a knowledge repository of tested practices and innovative resource management approaches that are currently being tested. The diverse menu of options represents the current state of the art of good land management practices.

Climate change and shifts in weather patterns are expected to present many challenges to agricultural sectors worldwide Hatfield et al. Agricultural systems are vulnerable to changing climatic conditions, with potential impacts spanning economic, ecological, and social concerns Schattman et al. In the United States and globally, there is a need for new and increased outreach and programing to assist in discussions and decision-making processes regarding agricultural adaptation to climate change. Landscape photovisualizations PVZs are simulated images of potential future changes to landscapes or the built environment. There is potential for PVZs to support efforts at local and regional levels to increase climate adaptation and mitigation activities.

SOIL www. CC Attribution 3. Soil erosion severely threatens the soil resource and the sustainability of agriculture. After decades of research, this problem still persists, despite the fact that adequate technical solutions now exist for most situ- ations. This begs the question as to why soil conservation is not more rapidly and more generally implemented. Studies show that the implementation of soil conservation measures depends on a multitude of factors but it is also clear that rapid change in agricultural systems only happens when a clear economic incentive is present for the farmer. Conservation measures are often more or less cost-neutral, which explains why they are often less generally adopted than expected.
Энсей Танкадо незаметно кивнул, словно говоря:. И тут же весь обмяк. - Боже всемилостивый, - прошептал Джабба. Камера вдруг повернулась к укрытию Халохота. Убийцы там уже не .

Слова Сьюзан Флетчер о том, что ключ находится в Испании, показались ему обнадеживающими. Он бросил быстрый взгляд на Сьюзан, которая по-прежнему сидела на стуле, обхватив голову руками и целиком уйдя в. Фонтейн не мог понять, в чем дело, но, какими бы ни были причины ее состояния, выяснять это сейчас не было времени. - Нужно решать, сэр! - требовал Джабба. - Немедленно.
