Human dynamics and the intergenerational farm transfer process in later life: A roadmap for future generational renewal in agriculture policy

Shane Francis Conway, John McDonagh, Maura Farrell, Anne Kinsella, Shane Francis Conway, John McDonagh, Maura Farrell & Anne Kinsella
The senior generation’s reluctance and indeed resistance to alter the status quo of the existing management and ownership structure of their family farm is undoubtedly strong within the farming community.

The reasons why older farmers fail to plan effectively and expeditiously for the future are expansive, and range from the potential loss of identity, status and...

Psycho-Social Approach to the Associated Worker Cooperativism in Andalusia, Spain

Antonio J. Romero & Antonio J. Romero
In associated worker cooperativism, the degree of agreement between the cooperative principles and values (democracy, equality, solidarity, etc.) and their economic efficiency is going to depend, to a great extent, on the human profile from which this type of organization is nurtured.

Abebayehu Girma Geffersa, Frank W. Agbola, Amir Mahmood, Abebayehu Girma Geffersa, Frank W. Agbola & Amir Mahmood
Farm efficiency analysis provides significant insights into farms’ potential to enhance agricultural productivity. This article reports on an investigation of technology adoption and technical efficiency (TE) in the Ethiopian maize sector. We estimated TE while accounting for the potential technological difference between improved and local maize varieties and addressing self-selection bias resulting from farmers’ decisions to adopt new crop varieties. Using comprehensive household-level data collected in 2011 from five major maize-producing regions in Ethiopia, we...

Omer Saeed Habtoor, Waddah Kamal Hassan, Khaled Salmeen Aljaaidi, Omer Saeed Habtoor, Waddah Kamal Hassan & Khaled Salmeen Aljaaidi
