It is part of Agri-extension approach comprising of certain group of farmers having common farming interest to provide platform for agriculture and solve problem together. GON has adopted the farmers' group approach of extension service delivery for reasons of cost effectiveness, group learning and joint decision making. They are advised by extension workers to conduct regular monthly meetings and to raise welfare funds. This book gives the detail insight of the effectiveness, efficiency and gender roles in decision making process in farmers group of Chitwan, Nepal.
Muisca refers to a nation of the Chibchan Culture that formed the Muisca Confederation encountered by the Spanish in 1537, at the time of the conquest of what is now part of central Colombia. The Muisca comprised two confederations: the Hunza, whose sovereign was the Zaque, and the Bacatá, whose sovereign was the Zipa. Both confederations were located in the highlands of modern-day Cundinamarca and Boyacá (Altiplano Cundiboyacense) in the central area of Colombia's Eastern Range. The territory of the Muisca spanned an area of 46,972 km² (a region slightly larger than Switzerland) from the North of Boyacá to the Sumapaz Páramo and from the summits of the Eastern Range to the Magdalena Valley. It bordered the territories of the Panches and Pijaos tribes. It had a large population during the Spanish Conquest, but the actual number of inhabitants is unknown. The languages of the Muisca were Chibchan, Muysca and Mosca, which belong to the Chibchan-Paezan linguistic family. The economy was based on agriculture, metalworking and manufacturing.
White grubs, soil-feeding pests have become increasingly difficult in Nepalese agriculture over the years. Control measures primarily depend with the use of chemical pesticides where the use of microbial pesticides is lacking and this has aggravated the pest problem. The book depicts alternative control measures with fungal antagonist fungus based on the works conducted in Switzerland and Nepal. The fungus was identified, cultured and mass-produced into barley kernel. Dynamics study shows multispecies association of white grubs in Nepalese agriculture. Insect pathogen is widely distributed in soils, however, with low density therefore, augmentation is necessary. The product was found pathogenic both in indoor as well as in the field, being the LT50 between 2-5 weeks and more than 25% reduction of the density of white grubs' in field respectively. This indicates the greater scope of the work in organic production as well to the researchers, industries, institutes and extension workers. In the end, this book will contribute to the organic agriculture and producing high value crops.
This book illustrates the development, implementation and evaluation of national environment and health action plans (NEHAP) using the example of the Swiss NEHAP, which focused on three thematic areas (housing, transport and nutrition and agriculture). Related to environmental health, housing quality is often discussed. However, the scientific basis for the development of suitable strategies and measures is still incomplete. On this topic, the book presents the results of a study on perceived housing quality and wellbeing carried out in Switzerland. It also summarizes the approach and results of the evaluation of the Swiss NEHAP and draws conclusions for the national level. The book also takes an international perspective through a comparison with WHO's environment and health indicators. This book contains methodological aspects as well as indications for practice.
