Abstract

This book offers effective, low-cost and user-friendly protocols for the pre-field selection of salt-tolerant mutants in cereal crops. It presents simple methods for measuring soil salinity, including soil sampling and the analysis of water-soluble salts, and describes a detailed, but simple, screening test for salt tolerance in rice, wheat and barley seedlings, which uses hydroponics. The protocols are devised for use by plant breeders and can be easily accommodated into breeding practice.

Abstract

A finales del siglo XX, los Andes continúan siendo la gran cadena de montañas más poblada del mundo. En ninguna otra parte se encuentra, como en Perú y Bolivia, a millones de hombres establecidos a más de 3,500 m.s.n.m. En los Andes, a diferencia de los Alpes -que perdieron sus campesinos durante los siglos XIX y XX- hay siempre campesinos y probablemente nunca ha habido tantos, pero éstos son ahora minoría en las sociedades nacionales; lo son tanto en número, en países en los que la mayoría...

Abstract

The European project Multisward ( http://www.multisward.eu/multisward_eng/ ) aims at supporting developments and innovations in grassland use and management in different European farming systems (including low-input and organic farming systems), pedoclimatic and socio-economic conditions i) to enhance the role of grasslands at farm and landscape levels to produce environmental goods and to limit the erosion of biodiversity and ii) to optimise economic, agronomic and nutritional advantages for the development of innovative and sustainable ruminant production systems. The identification of the innovations and their implementation required an exhaustive analysis of the state of grasslands and herbivore production in Europe including how they changed over decades. The effects of public policies were investigated. The results of this analysis are published in the present book.

Abstract

L'agriculture d'aujourd'hui permet-elle encore de remplir les fonctions de production d'aliments sains et de qualité ? Ou faut-il privilégier des systèmes alternatifs tels que les circuits courts et l'agriculture biologique ? Quel avenir pour l'agriculture locale ? Vers quoi se dirige-t-on à l'échelle mondiale ? Les OGM ont-ils encore un rôle à jouer pour pouvoir faire face aux défis qui nous attendent ? Nos méthodes d'élevage sont-elles durables ? Comment gérer la problématique d'émission de gaz à effet de serre ? Ce premier ouvrage rédigé par des scientifiques oeuvrant principalement dans le domaine de l'alimentation et de l'environnement a pour objectif d'apporter aux lecteurs des informations fiables, basées sur l'évidence scientifique, afin de les aider à trouver des réponses à des questions importantes qu'ils peuvent se poser. Dans un monde où il est de plus en plus difficile de trouver des informations correctes, non déformées par les nombreux groupes de pression qui chacun défendent leurs propres intérêts, il est bon de pouvoir prendre un peu de recul et entamer une réflexion en profondeur sur certains de ces grands problèmes ou enjeux de société. "AgricultureS et enjeux de société" constitue le premier tome de la collection "Le trèfle à quatre feuilles". Il sera suivi par trois autres ouvrages, portant sur des thématiques complémentaires que sont l'Alimentation, l'Environnement et la Santé. A l'image du trèfle à quatre feuilles, porte- bonheur et symbole de bonne fortune, la collection comprend donc quatre tomes, correspondant aux quatre folioles de notre talisman. Chacun d'entre eux a son importance et converge vers un objectif ultime : le bien-être de l'être humain vivant dans un environnement sain et se nourrissant de produits de qualité.

Abstract

This book publishes the results of the inter-regional project on "Evolutionary dynamics of agricultural enterprises and multifunctionality". Starting from the identification of a shared theoretical framework of the concept of multifunctionality, the study has developed a method for zoning the territory aimed at defining the different roles played by agriculture. The development of case studies, and meetings with stakeholders and focus groups, have made it possible to identify the weak and strong points within and outside the enterprises, with particular reference to the multifunctional components and the degree of repeatability and transferability of the experiences analysed. The result is to bring to light needs in terms of policies, tools for the valorisation of multifunctionality and strategies that enable the agricultural enterprises to commercially valorise functions not traditionally pertinent to the market.

De las comunidades campesinas del valle de Chancay, estudiadas por el Instituto de Estudios Heñíanos desde 1964, aparte de su ubicación geográfica, el tipo de tenencia y conducción de la tierra es el rasgo distintivo de Acos. Acos es la única comunidad campesina del Perú, onde sus habitantes poseen, además de 118.64 Has. de tierras comprendidas en sus linderos, 61 Has. en ""fundos"" de las comunidades vecinas y, donde, paradójicamente, los comuneros controlan casi 40 Has. de tierras como propi...

Abstract

L'observation et l'analyse rapide d'un certain nombre d'arguments récurrents relatifs au développement des biocarburants, posent toutefois la question de leur pertinence au regard des enjeux d'un développement durable et de leur capacité réelle à faire évoluer en profondeur les politiques publiques. Á travers le prisme des biocarburants, petit chaînon d'une politique publique plus globale, nous percevons qu'il conviendrait d'élargir le débat afin de promouvoir une politique plus large prenan...

Abstract

"Specific studies on the biodiversity or the implementation of the concept of integrated farming imply the need to know how to identify the insect pests or natural enemies. In some countries, growing transgenic, caterpillar-resistant plants, like cotton or corn, has reduced the use of insecticide treatments to control these pests. Some families of bugs like the Pentatomidae and the Miridae have thus become major pests. It is therefore important to improve our understanding of these pests sometimes considered as secondary.&#xD;People working in the field will find in this book a brief description of the main species of phytophage and predatory bugs found in West Africa, principally in cotton, corn, cowpea (Vigna unguiculata), soy bean and sorghum."&#xD;
