  • The influence of factors of the socio-geographical structure of mountain farms in Slovenia upon farm succession statuses and decisions
  • Agriculture ; Farm ; Methodology ; Mountain farming ; Perception ; Slovenia
  • This paper discusses the influence of single factors of the socio-geographical structure of mountain farms in Slovenia, independent of each other, as well as in conjunction with each other upon farm succession statuses and decisions. The methodology
  • is described in detail, especially the discrete choice models by which these influences were assessed. The results were linked with findings from other researchers and show that the householder’s perceptions about mountain farms, work and life on the farm
  • , as well as tradition hold the most vital role with regard to succession on mountain farms. At the same time, in order to ensure succession and continuation of farming on the mountain farm, an appropriate economic basis must be assured. - (IKR)
  • The role and importance of owner's perceptions and opinions in preserving continuity between generations on Slovenian mountain farms
  • Family ; Family farm ; Farm ; Mountain ; Mountain farming ; Slovenia ; Social reproduction
  • Family farms are characterized by the fact that they are passed down within the family from one generation to the next. In this way, the orientation of parents and especially farm owners is also passed on to children. With regard
  • to this characteristic, this paper proceeds from the hypothesis that owners’ beliefs, opinions, and perceptions have an important impact on farm succession in Slovenia. - (L'A.).
  • The Bamboutos mountains : environment and rural land use in West Cameroon
  • Agricultural land use ; Cameroon ; Environment ; Mountain ; Mountain farming ; Over-grazing ; Soil degradation ; Soil erosion
  • In the 1970s Bamileke peasants moved into the Bamboutos mountains to farm. Now densely populated, agriculture on steep slopes has led to serious soil erosion. The land has also been overgrazed, and there are conflicts between farmers
  • Agriculture in the Rif and Tell mountains of North Africa
  • Africa ; Algeria ; Cultivated land;Cultivated surface ; Emigration ; Farming;Agriculture ; Morocco ; Mountain ; Mountain farming ; Northern Africa ; Tunisia ; Wasteland
  • The A. challenges the generalization drawn of the Rif and Tell mountains of Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia as a zone of agricultural collapse, land abandonment and outmigration. More accurately, parts of this region expand and contract at different
  • Agriculture ; Farm ; Mountain farming ; Slovenia
  • This paper is based on the hypothesis that the official statistical data does not reflect actual succession status on mountain farms in Slovenia and also on Slovene farms in general, since the census criteria defining succession are still incomplete
  • . With the purpose of confirming our assumption, we formulated more accurate criteria and also determined as to what is the real status of succession on mountain farms in Slovenia. It has proved to be more favourable, than it is presented by the official statistics
  • Emigration ; Farm ; Mountain farming ; Rural area ; Rural population ; Slovenia
  • In the article is represented and evaluated the demographic potential of mountain farms on Dravsko Pohorje. The characteristics of socio-economic structure, depopulation, deagrarization, demographic vitality, productiveness, and succession
  • continuity of mountain farms are described. The results indicate that demographic vitality is weakened due to permanent emigration of young population, as well as succession continuity on many farms is not assured. - (IKR)

  • Farmers who to semi-arid Laikipia District maintain humid land-use practices unsuitable to this zone. Interview surveys of household strategies of small-scale farmers and off-farm employment opportunities point to the need for a socioeconomic
  • Sustainable land management in marginal mountain areas of the Himalayan region
  • Afforestation ; Agricultural production ; Agriculture ; Asia ; Farming system ; Food security ; Himalaya ; Land management ; Mountain ; Nepal
  • There is little arable land in the hills and mountains of the Himalayan region, where small, marginal farmers try to eke out a living. A new thinking advocates research in niche based sustainable production systems on marginal lands as part
  • of the effort to provide food security and sustainable livehoods for such marginal farmers. The International Centre for Integrated Mountains Development's (ICIMOD) afforestation strategies for degraded marginal areas are discussed, with reference to Sikkim

  • Cal Parisa basin (eastern Spain), was selected as a representative of extensive areas on clayey bedrock formerly used for farming, nowadays almost abandoned, where badlands are of great importance as far as sediment production is concerned.

  • The paper presents how mountain farms in Slovene Alpine and Subalpine areas are spatially distributed with regard to their succession statuses and decisions, and to what extent the spatial distribution ascertained is linked to the economic
  • to the Slovene Agricultural Census of 2000. The results show that there are three serried areas with a greater share of mountain farms on which succession will not occur, or on which successors will not continue with farming after takeover. Economic development

  • The loss and maintenance of native crops in mountain agriculture
  • Agricultural practice ; Andes ; Crop ; Farming system ; Maize;Corn ; Mountain ; Mountain farming ; Peasantry ; Peru ; Potatoe ; Tropical zone
  • Four native crops (potatoes, maize, ulluco, quinoa) cultivated in the southern Peruvian sierra demonstrate different patterns of cultivar loss and cultivar maintenance. Contingent social, economic and environmental conditions in mountain agriculture
  • Farmer perception of soils in the mountains of the Dominican Republic
  • In Las Cuevas north of Azua 80 farmers were interviewed about their soils : 48% of them were aware of soil erosion, but had little interest in soil conservation. None of the farmers named more than six kinds of soil. Stoniness or soil depth were
  • The use of unstable steeplands in the mountains of Papua New Guinea
  • Farming system ; Farming;Agriculture ; Land use ; Mass movement ; Mountain ; Papua New Guinea ; Population density ; Slope ; Slope gradient ; Soil erosion ; Valley
  • Agricultural use of steep slopes in the densely populated Chimbu valley has incurred mass movement (slumps, slides and flows), but not rill or gully erosion. These processes provide clues to the complex history of highland slope farming.―(DWG)

  • Study of the traditional land use between 3 000 and 4 000 m in the Cordillera de Mérida around Gavidia. Peasant farming here is ecologically sustainable with recuperating fallows, little erosion and high diversity, but it is now obsolete. Even

  • Mountain land use is viewed as a function of ecology, culture and economy working in concert. This perspective is examined in the agriculture and pastoralism of Kashmir and Juansar-Bawar (India) and in the Alps of Europe. - (DWG)
  • Patterns of vegetation change on alpine mountain summer farms in Norway
  • Land use ; Livestock farming ; Mountain ; Norway ; Nutrient ; Pastureland ; Soil properties ; Summer farm ; Vegetation ; Vegetation dynamics ; Western Norway
  • Vegetation data and environmental variables of 3 mountain summer farms on the Hardangervidda plateau, Western Norway, with similar ecological site conditions, but different grazing histories and present states of use, were analysed with the help
  • of ordination methods. The results showed that mountain summer farming created a clear difference between areas at a larger distance from the farmsteads and those in the immediate surrounding of the buildings. The former are characterized by species typically
  • occurring in habitats with low disturbance, the latter by species characteristic for grazed habitats. Changes after abandonment of mountain summer farming occurred slowly, and the results emphasized the importance of the accumulated soil nutrients
