A course of English in Agriculture” is specialized English curriculum can be used as teaching materials for students of agricultural, agro-forestry sector in the state and refer to the Agriculture sector of basic education such as: farming, gardening, agro-forestry techniques ...

The U.S. food and agricultural sector is undergoing rapid change in
production, distribution, and consumption of food and fiber, and in technology.
There have been dramatic increases in production and marketing coordination,
market contracting, concentration of agricultural output by fewer and fewer
operations, and consolidation of agricultural operations. These increases are
manifested in significant long- and short-term changes in farm size, number,
distribution, and location.
Research intensity1 in Vietnam is less than 0.2% which is lower that most developing countries
of 0.5% and much lower than developed country average of 1.5%. GoV has targeted a 12%
increase of central government funding levels from 2006 – 2011 and to date total funding
increases in agricultural research funding have exceeded that level. MARD research funding
provides approximately 65% of all forms of local funding in Vietnam.
Agriculture is also a significant source of economic growth. In developing countries,
agriculture generates on average 29 percent of the gross domestic product (GDP) and
employs 65 percent of the labour force. About two thirds of the world’s agricultural value
added is produced in developing countries. At the same time, agriculture also plays an
important role in transforming and urbanized economies, where industries and services
linked to agriculture account for more than 30 percent of GDP (ibid.).
Intensive Agriculture: The agriculture sector is specialized in all aspects of agricultural production, including machinery used in farming, animal husbandry, or in processing agricultural products . Intensive agricultural production with large input sources, including the use of chemicals kill worms, herbicides, fertilizers, selective breeding and research of new varieties and a high degree of mechanization.

Technology aided by matching policy and institutional support propelled the productivity-
led growth in crop, animal, fish and horticulture production in India during the post-independence
period. Agricultural growth trend achieved until now outpaced population growth and ensured
food self-sufficiency. The Green, White, Blue and Yellow revolutions bear testimony to the success
of the strategies pursued in the past. For accelerating income growth, alleviating poverty and
enhancing nutrition security, agriculture sector has to move on to a higher growth trajectory in the
The proposal provides for short course training in marketing and policy analysis related to the post harvest sector and the resource sectors. Paralleling the short courses will be a number of mini research projects in these areas that will be designed to develop analytical skills of academic staff in the participating institutions.
In Vietnam rodents are one of the three most important problems identified by the agricultural sector. The damage caused by rodents in agricultural systems is an important impediment to rural development in the Mekong Delta region. This proposal capitalises on the research findings and on the measurement of farmers' belief and practises associated with rodent control in the Mekong Delta.
This book is an effort to bring the appHcation of new technologies into the
domain of agriculture. Historically, agriculture has been relatively behind the
industrial sector in using and adapting to new technologies. One of the
reasons for the technological gap between industrial and agricultural sectors
could be the modest amounts of investments made in the field of agriculture
compared to the impressive numbers and efforts the industrial sector invests
in new technologies.
The AgVANTAGE leasing program is a working model of a type of credit line. The program
currently provides funding support (co-financing or partial guarantees) to share risk on
equipment leases to the agricultural sector. This program was developed as a support service
for the production, processing, and marketing components of the AgVANTAGE project. The
leasing program is funded with $500,000 and combined with the leverage of the leasing
companies’ capital it is projected to eventually provide $1 million in assistance.
Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) – investment by foreign companies in overseas subsidiaries or
joint ventures – has a traditional reliance on natural resource use and extraction,particularly
agriculture, mineral and fuel production. Though this balance has shifted in recent years, the poorest countries still receive a disproportionate amount of investment flows into their natural resource sectors.

This book addresses the theme of the impacts of global warming on different specific fields, ranging from the regional and global economy, to agriculture, human health, urban areas, land vegetation, marine areas and mangroves. Despite the volume of scientific work that has been undertaken in relation to each of each of these issues, the study of the impacts of global warming upon them is a relatively recent and unexplored topic. The chapters of this book offer a broad overview of potential applications of global warming science.
Within this setting of a dynamic, private marketing system, the role of the Federal Government is
to help keep the marketing of agricultural commodities flowing in an orderly and efficient
manner, to promote effective distribution, to eliminate speculation and waste, and to stabilize the
marketing of agricultural commodities. A brief summary of current programs and activities is
given below. However, it must be realized that as the marketing system continues to evolve,
there will be corresponding changes in the programs, services or activities of the Federal
