The paper aimed to comparatively analyze the economic efficiency of Paulownia Species, Shan Tung variety, grown for producing 10,000 saplings in pots at SC Galya 3000 SRL, Cerneteaz Commune, Timis County, Romania in the year 2016. The research includes three alternatives for producing 10,000 saplings in pots as follows: V1- saplings in pots 7x7x8 cm, V2- saplings in pots of 19 cm, and V3-saplings in pots of 36 cm. In case of V3, the production cost for 8 months to produce saplings of 1-1.5 m height in a pot of 36 cm was Lei 8.95, 2 times higher compared to V2, where the cost per sapling of 50 cm in a pot of 19 cm was Lei 4.06 and 7.16 times higher than in case of V1, where the cost per sapling of 4 cm in a small pot of 8 cm was Lei 1.25. The income is 6 times higher in case of V3 compared to V1 and 2 times higher compared to V2, and as a consequence, the gross profit increases from V1 to V3, while the profit rate decreases from 300.14 % in case of V1 to 235.04 % in case of V3. Therefore, the profit rate is enough high to consider Paulownia growing a real business for all the three variants. As a final conclusion, Paulownia tree growing is a real business for farmers interested to get income and profit in a short period of time varying from1.5 months to 8 months. Also, the plants could be grown in plantations for fuel and furniture wood whose price is much higher if the wood is sold in the international market.

In recent years, Bulgaria is about to market successfully one of the few competitive advantages that the country has as a tourist destination – the diverse and authentic nature. It is an indisputable fact that tourism in its diversity is closely linked to the choice of destination. Sustainable destination management is critical for tourism development, particularly by having effective spatial planning and land use control and through investment decisions on infrastructure and services. The aim of this paper is to propose a management model of a tourist destination in the context of the ideas and policies for sustainable development. The thesis that is justified is that sustainable tourism destination is the result of a proper use of an appropriate governance model. The development and implementation of specific management model make the destination of an all year-round tourism in its different varieties (recreational, sports, etc.), bearing economic, social and environmental benefits to society.

The ramp-up of the agricultural industry output requires the use of new, high-performance machines, whilst the complicated world economic situation has made it difficult to purchase foreign agricultural equipment. All these factors contributed to an increase in the demand for both domestic and Belarusian equipment. Tractors and various attachments are the most popular type of farm machinery with agricultural producers, which is used in almost all farm works. In this regard, there is a significant load being placed on them which leads to frequent breakdowns. At the same time, the age of tractors in farms of the Novosibirsk Region is mostly more than 10 years, which is also one of the reasons for failing. Most farms are simply unable to regularly update their machine and tractor fleet; therefore, during the spring field works or crop harvesting, it often happens that machines break down and wait for repairs for a long time. This results in crop losses and low yields. It is necessary to develop such a mechanism of the material support for agricultural producers which will help to avoid equipment downtime and lead to an increase in the gross collection.

ADAPTATION ECONOMICS TO CLIMATE CHANGE: KEY VULNERABILITIES OF SMALL-HOLDER FARMS

Published in Scientific Papers. Series "Management, Economic Engineering in Agriculture and rural development", Vol. 17 ISSUE 2
Written by Serkan GURLUK

The paper aims to present the key vulnerabilities of small-holder farms while adapting prospective climate change conditions. Natural resources’ productivity has declined under climate stress. The natural resources that lose their prolificacy negatively affect small-holder farms. Consequently, the agricultural sector will suffer from climate change impacts. The countries which have small-holder farms should be more careful while designing their rural policies. Indeed, small-holder farms lack capacity in management of agricultural risks. This phenomenon has the potential to trigger rural poverty in the medium-term. Many studies carried out on the African Continent indicates that adaptation costs of climate change account for 250-500 billion USD in the years between 2010 and 2050. Climate change adaptation policies are most effective when they are fully integrated within countries’ national development strategies. Furthermore, adequate funding and technology transfer to small-holder farms are important in ensuring success of any climate action and initiative. The current paper will give information related with adaptation costs to climate change in various countries of the world. In addition, the paper discusses the possibility of agricultural adaptation policies coming from developed zones of the world.

Maize (Zea mays L) is among the most widely consumed staples and is also used in the production of livestock feeds. This study analysed the adoption of improved farm practices among maize farmers in Yola, Adamawa State, Nigeria. The specific objectives were to; describe the socio-economic characteristics of the respondents, identify the improved farm practices adopted by the respondents, and identify respondents’ sources of information on improved farm practices. Systematic random sampling technique was used to select 117 respondents from whom primary data was collected using structured questionnaire. The data collected was analysed using means, frequency and percentages. The result showed that, majority (67.5%) of the respondents were male, married (76%), educated (70%), and 54.6% were within the economically active age of less than 51 years. Majority (81%) of the respondents were small scale farmers with land holdings of 1-4 ha, 77% of the respondents practiced maize farming for more than 10 years, 56.4% and 43.6% practiced sole cropping and mixed cropping respectively. Radio, friends, and extension agents were most preferred information sources. Use of herbicides, fertilizers, seed dressing, and mechanized farming were respondents’ most adopted improved technologies. The study recommends that radio should be used to disseminate information on improved farm practices; farmers should also, be encouraged to form groups that would assist them share information and pool resources together to overcome transitional cost of certain technologies.
