Written by Svetlana SASU, Svetlana DARII

The social aspect of rural tourism enhances its value as a communicative process because Tourism is an industrywith a difference. There is an undeniable exchange between places and people. This exchange is what is meant bycommunication. Communication happens at many levels (even for one single action), in many different ways, andfor most beings, as well as certain machines. Communication requires a sender, a message, and an intendedrecipient, although the receiver need not be present or aware of the sender's intent to communicate at the time ofcommunication; thus communication can occur across vast distances in time and space. Communication requiresthat the communicating parties share an area of communicative commonality. The communication process iscomplete once the receiver has understood the sender. Thus, communication is a two- way process. The interactionof the tourist with the places he visits and the people he meets is therefore, a form of communication in which boththe visitor and the visited form a communication cycle. A considerable amount of weight age is given to the power ofimpressions on the mind of a person living in the twenty-first century. One of the most important aspects of ruraltourism is the communication of the impressions created in the minds of tourists. These include non-verbal aspects -- sights and sounds communicate a general impression-- and the verbal aspect of communication-- language playsan important role in creating impressions.

Written by Alexandra Patricia BRAICA

The university is a small nation which has it’s own beliefs and values. The culture, image and the personality of each andevery higher education establishment are created in the first place by the people that compose the establishment. The study ofthe culture of an higher education establishment is essential because an organization can’t be ruled without knowing it’svalues. The university is a center of research and innovation which forms the professional competences according to thenational and European market demands of labor by taking over and applying the evolved knowledge as a source ofinventions, innovations and development in the technological and socioeconomically plan, provider of specialized servicesfor the community. The culture of the organization exerts a very powerful influence on everyone which compose it: teachersand non-teachers, beneficiaries teachings thus meaning the whole academic community. It’s effects are not directlyquantifiable, but they create a frame which allows to mend the obtained results, the efficiency of the activity and of theacademic demarches as well as it’s effective evolution. In order to succeed and resist in the future, in the context of Europeanintegration, of the rank of the higher education institutions, they will be needed to utilize direct methods, strategies andstructures adapted to the labor market, but also some indirect methods which can have behavior influences, especially inenhancing or if it’s the case, systematic transformation of the culture of the organization. To successfully transform auniversity in Romania with bureaucratic accents, mostly protected and isolated, inside a flexible institution, frequent able andopened if time is needed, trust and perseverance, but also of an adequate legislation that can answer to the needs of thecontemporary society in the context of allegiance to the European space. Surely a change program won’t solve the situationwithout being accompanied by changes at the structural levels.

Written by Dragoş CIMPOIEŞ, Adrian SÎRBU

The positioning of research institutions from Republic of Moldova through Research Gate score will be analyzed inthis paper. The aim of Research Gate score ranking is to help researchers and scientists to measure and leveragetheir standing within the scientific community. Research Gate provides the researchers with a metric that iscalculated based on how all of their research is received by their peers, not just the work that have been published.The Research Gate Score focuses on scientists, an ever-growing community of specialists. By opening up the idea ofwhat the research institutions can gain credit for and handing the power to evaluate it, the Research Gate Scoreputs reputation back into the hands of researchers. The Research Gate Score provides scientists and researchinstitutions with an alternate way to measure its reputation and performance. In this context, it is a useful tool forassessing the research activity of Moldovan universities, but also of comparing the research activity of universitiesfrom the Republic of Moldova with those from neighborhood countries.

RESEARCH ON MILK COST, RETURN AND PROFITABILITY IN DAIRY FARMING

Published in Scientific Papers. Series "Management, Economic Engineering in Agriculture and rural development", Vol. 14 ISSUE 2
Written by Agatha POPESCU

The paper aimed to the relationship between milk cost in terms of material cost and labor cost and estimate theinfluence of these costs on returns coming from milk and profitability in 5 small dairy farms from the SouthernRomania. The main economic indicators taken into consideration were: material cost, Xi, (feeding cost, replacingheifer, equipment and shed depreciation, electricity and water cost, fuel and lubricants cost) , labour cost, Y, andincome coming from milk, Z. The Cobb-Douglas regression function Z= a xα yβ was used to determine the variationof the studied economic indicators and relationships between them. Taking into account the close relationshipbetween income from marketed milk and material cost and labor cost, it is enough to use it as the only criterion infarm classification. Profitability in dairy farms depends both on cost input and milk output as well as milk marketprice.

RESEARCH ON PROFIT VARIATION DEPENDING ON MARKETED MILK AND PRODUCTION COST IN DAIRY FARMING

Published in Scientific Papers. Series "Management, Economic Engineering in Agriculture and rural development", Vol. 14 ISSUE 2
Written by Agatha POPESCU

The paper aimed to analyze the effect of marketed milk production and milk production cost on profit in dairyfarming in Romania. In this purpose, the data from 10 dairy farms situated in the Southern Romania were collectedin the period 2011-2013. The average marketed milk per cow accounted for 5,507 kg with a variation coefficient of10.90 %. The average milk production cost registered Lei 1.07/kg milk, while the average milk price was Lei1.23/kg. The average profit coming from marketed milk accounted for Lei 984.89 per cow and yaer with a variationbetween Lei 2,375/cow/year, the highest level and Lei 314.4/cow/year, the lowest level. The variation coefficient,69.90 % reflected a large variation from a farm to another. Based on the equation of the regression plan, Z = 1.187x +11.46 y - 4,262 which assured the minimum residual variance, three variants of simulation were set up. Aconstant milk production cost, Y= Lei 1.07/kg, and a 100 kg growth of marketed milk could determine Lei 18.7additonal profit per cow and year. For a constant marketed milk of 5,507 kg, and an increased milk production costby Lei 0.02/kg has no influence on profit level. When marketed milk increases by 100 kg and milk production cost byLei 0.02 per kg, farmers' profit could increase by Lei 118.9/cow and year. Marketed milk and milk price have apositive impact on profit, while production cost has a negative impact.

RESEARCH ON THE RELATION MANAGEMENT BETWEEN ROOTS AND SOIL UNDER CLIMATIC STRESS CONDITIONS IN PREMIUM WHEAT CROP

Published in Scientific Papers. Series "Management, Economic Engineering in Agriculture and rural development", Vol. 14 ISSUE 2
Written by Mihai BERCA, Roxana HOROIAŞ

The present study was conducted in order to highlight a big problem that breeders are facing with nowadays,namely the relations which are formed between the plants root system and the soil, that constitutes their living anddevelopment environment. There were identified three main ways through which the breeding of the roots-soilsystem can be achieved for its optimization: the factors related to soil, the soil technologies and, finally, thebreeding, genetics and molecular genetics path. Taking into account all the principles mentioned above, wereevaluated the yields obtained at Premium wheat in two agricultural years, years that were totally different fromclimatic point of view (2011-2012 and 2012-2013). The importance of the connection between plant roots and soilwas especially visible in 2011-2012, when were registered extreme drought conditions. The phenomenon was alsoextended to neighboring plains (The Pannonian Plain in Austria, Hungary, examples being conclusive in this sense).Data obtained from our own experimental lots, where have been taken into account elements like soil amelioration,farm management, seed quality and varieties used in culture, are indicating significantly positive differencescompared to those plots that were planted randomly, without taking into account all these aspects. In the same time,this paper presents the correlations between the wheat root system development and the yields level. Researcheswere performed in several areas of the country, making the relevance of the study and of its results even greater,while its utility for farmers increases directly proportional to the demonstrated importance.

The paper aimed to analyse the main characteristics of Romania’s rural labour force by concentrating ondynamics and structure of economically active population in the period 2007-2012. We analysed the mainlabour market indicators provided by statistical surveys like active population, unemployment, activity rate,unemployment rate, etc. by age, educational level and group of occupations. Our analysis points out thecurrent dimensions of labour force from rural areas, and more importantly the main problems on this market(lack of jobs, the increase of unemployment, the aging process of population (the continuous reduction ofyoung population) and the low level of education) and also the real necessity of SME development supportand training opportunities for economically active rural population.
