Title: Livelihood Diversification Among Rural ...

Publisher: LAP Lambert Academic Publishing

Binding: Paperback

Book Condition: New

Book Type: Paperback

Description:

Paperback. 120 pages. Dimensions: 8.7in. x 5.9in. x 0.3in.The purpose of this study was to investigate the implications of livelihood diversification on land use patterns. The study combined both qualitative and quantitative techniques. The empirical results showed that because of declining farm size and fertility status, the majority of households engaged in on-farm, off-farm, non-farm and remittance means of livelihood. The study result also revealed that there is an increasing trend of allotting more size of farm land for cash crops in midland areas than in highland areas, where more size of land is allotted for annual crops. The rapid increase of population pressure on limited land resources has caused not only the scarcity of farm land but also expansion into fragile lands and steeper slopes previously considered marginal for crop production. The physical soil conservation infrastructures already in place are not in harmony with the resource availability and current resource use in mixed farming systems under critical land shortage conditions, hence, adequate emphasis should be given to environmentally friendly and economically viable off-farm and non-farm income generating strategies to attain sustainable land resources management. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9783848489473
