E-business Guide The concept of Integrated Farm Management Systems (IFMS) is based around the productivity and marketing opportunities offered by the seamless integration of electronics based farm technologies. In essence, IFMS would provide a framework, based on a standardised communications platform, for the collection of all data at the farm level. Structured around individual animal Electronic Identification (EID), IFMS would facilitate improved management of production outputs against inputs as well as provide a basis for food traceability, an issue that will become of critical importance in the future. The objective of IFMS, as applied to pastoral farming, can be described as: "to maximize the economic return from the sustainable supply of consumer safe, internationally compliant food products, using pasture-based technologies that incorporate fully traceable food chain linkages throughout the production, processing and marketing structure." There is growing recognition of the need for greater and smarter use of information and communications technologies in industry and the agricultural sector in particular has much to gain from these technologies. This need was recognized by New Zealand Agritech Inc., the representative body of the agritech industry and New Zealand Trade and Enterprise (NZTE) and resulted in the commissioning of this study.

Extractions: Canadians spent about $4.5 billion on poultry meat and eggs in 2002. We consumed more poultry and eggs than we did ten years earlier. On average, Canadians ate 34.9 kg of poultry meat and just over 15 dozen eggs in 2002. Poultry and egg Consumption (per capita) Source: Statistics Canada Just over 4,800 producers supply poultry and eggs to 150 processing plants and 341 grading stations. Industry associations estimate the meat-processing plants employ about 17,000 people. The poultry and egg industries represented 13.9% of Canada's total livestock farm cash receipts in 2002. Chicken per capita consumption has been rising steadily and has almost doubled since 1978, the year the Chicken Farmers of Canada was established. In 2002, for the first time, chicken replaced beef as Canadians' preferred meat. Time-conscious consumers find that poultry products are easy to prepare and often sold ready-to-eat. Chicken consumption (kg/person) Source: Statistics Canada Retail sales of chicken represent almost two-thirds of total sales while the fast food sector has seen its market share decline.

Baker, Associate Professor, Arkansas State University; and H. Scott Stiles , Extension Economist - Risk Management, University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service Introduction Re-infestation due to cotton transport has potential economic impact as adjoining areas of cotton production reach boll weevil free status at different times. The possibility of some type of cotton transport restrictions in Northeast Arkansas is prompting growers, ginners and other interested parties to examine the projected impacts of such actions. The primary impact would be felt by cotton producers and the cotton gins where their production is first processed. Any restriction on the transport of un-ginned cotton, commonly known as seed cotton, could have significant impacts on the profits of producers, gins and the rural communities where they are located. This issue was addressed, in part, by identifying the number of gins operating in the region, the volume of cotton ginned and the patterns of flow for seed cotton.

To Purchase One Tractor Dairy (Kg Milkfat) 14,084 ($3.55/Kg) 10,295 ($6.68/kg) Lambs (number) 2,631 ($19/head) 2,023 ($34/head) 27,624 (180c/Kg) 35,265 (195c/Kg) 12,019 (410c/Kg) 16,734 (410c/Kg) That all boils down to the dairy farmer having to produce 27% less milk solids, with the sheep and beef farmer required to produce 27% more beef, 39% more wool, but 23% fewer lambs. One of the characteristics of the past decade is that farmers are adopting improved risk management practices. They diversified their farming operations, often adding alternative ventures such as deer, horticulture, forestry and goats to their base operation. They also adopted more flexible farm management practices to allow them to take advantage of market opportunities. A further feature in New Zealand has been the changing character of rural communities. Traditionally, most people in rural areas were directly involved in farming or farm service activities. Now, however, around one-third of the people living in rural communities are not directly involved in farming activities. They are working in tourism, small businesses, recreational activities and community services, adding to the diversity and strength of rural communities in New Zealand.
Extractions: Home Publications RUSSIAN AGRICULTURE IN 2002 - OBSERVATIONS, POTENTIALS, TENDENCIES, BARRIERS 1. Observations and Tendencies Transition of the agriculture and food sector is in full swing in Russia. To support the transformation process policy makers tend to favour vertically integrated large holding structures. However, legal and policy framework conditions should not be biased towards a certain model of agriculture. There is room for a multitude of farm types according to their specific competitive advantage at a certain location to produce a certain good. Future and markets will give the right answer. Russia occupies more than one tenth of the agricultural land on earth including very large areas of black soils, with very favourable climatic conditions with enormous production and efficiency potentials. The Russian population however, represents less than 2.5 % of the world population. Therefore, Russia may become a main supplier of world food markets. Today, Russia remains a net importer of food products, in particular for products of high value. Causes for this are many, a.o. high transaction costs especially for exporters, administrative trade barriers and lack of long-term investments in the food chain and in necessary infrastructure

Extractions: Theme: Farm Management Environmental conditions and farming systems vary within and across OECD countries and, consequently, best farm management practices vary from one region to another. Farm management decisions are influenced by environmental regulations, agricultural support measures, investments in research, education and extension services and site-specific environmental conditions. Information on farm management practices, and how these practices affect the environment and meet compulsory, regulatory or voluntary standards, is an important tool for policy makers. There can be trade-offs in implementing environmentally sound management practices. Reducing soil erosion, for example, whereby farmers move from conventional to reduced or no-tillage in crop production, can be achieved if weeds are controlled with herbicides. An environmental side-effect of these practices is a likely change in water movement in the soil, with no-tillage leading to increasing infiltration and percolation of nutrients such as nitrate to the water table compared with conventional tillage. In addition, the increase in herbicide use may cause pesticide leaching. Thus, the objective of lowering soil erosion through no-tillage may lead to some negative environmental effects.
